This course is designed to cover the basics of biology that are needed for future studies of genetics and bioengineering.
Model organisms are usually used to study genetics, which is why students will have an opportunity to learn about living
organisms, as well as how to implement this knowledge in future studies. The course will begin by introducing the
structures of macromolecules, the basic concepts of the cell, cell organelles, metabolism, cell cycle, inheritance and the
flow of genetic information, followed by binominal classification systems and various groups of organisms, such as
bacteria, algae, fungi, Plantae and Animalia. This is taken concurrently with a laboratory course.
