DLUT International Summer/Winter Session

General Biology with Lab

  • 课程中文名:基础生物学
  • Course Description
  • This course will explore biology from the biochemical level through the individual organism. This includes cells, tissues and organ systems; genetics, DNA and protein synthesis, life cycles and development; the internal workings of the cell, and the physiology of organisms from single celled bacteria through multi-cellular plants and animals. Students will investigate the properties of life that unite all living organisms: how they are constructed, reproduce, and function. The course will also highlight the interactions between organisms and their environment in explaining the principles of speciation and biodiversity. Additionally, the course will teach how the processes of scientific investigation can lead to new discoveries.
