Course contents:
Object of biology and characterization of biological sciences. Organisation of living systems. Biology and society. Meaning of study of biology. Classification of structural compartments of prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells. Biomembranes: plasma membrane, cell transport of materials through membranes, cell communications. The cell compartmentation: plasma, cytoskeleton, the endoplasmic reticulum, the Golgi apparatus. Lysosomes, microbody, vacuoles, nucleus -- the cell informatic and control centre. Mitochondrions and chloroplasts: the cell energy centre -- cellular respiration and photosynthesis. Cell growth and cell division: mitosis, cell cycle, meiosis, gametogenesis and fertilization. The laws of heredity and viability: Mendel's and Morgan's laws. Chromosomes and genes: the cell interactions of genes, the sex chromosomes, the binding of genes, the mutation changes of genotype. Non nucleus heredity: plastide heredity, mitochondrial heredity, plasmic heredity. DNA -- the genetic material, chromosomes organization of DNA, DNA replication. Gene activity: the gene expression, transcription and translation of genetic information. Mutations. The regulation of gene activity. Animal and plant organisation: Animal and plant tissue -- the basic types and being, structure and function. Organes -- structure, function and constitute. Anatomic building and function of seed plant. Enviromental concerns: physical, chemical and biological influences on the cell. Age and cell death. The human living enviroment -- contamination and protection of the living enviroment. The human nutrion. Practical and industrial application of organisms. Gene manipulations and biotechnology.
