A core science consideration of the nuts and bolts of life at the cellular level. The nitty gritty of cellular
organisation is examined from membrane structure/function, to bio-molecular structures of proteins, nucleic acids, and lipids. The energetics and thermodynamics of cells, enzymes, respiration, mitosis and meiosis are introduced.


Consideration of Mendelian genetics allows an overview of DNA replication, gene transcription, protein synthesis, mRNA splicing that informs the opportunity to discuss control of gene expression, recombinant DNA technology and genetic disease.
