In this college-equivalent course, students investigate, in depth, the phylogenetic survey of basic physiological functions, modern molecular genetics, developmental biology and the biochemistry of living systems. Students extend their understanding of biology with an emphasis on cytology, cellular respiration and photosynthesis, enzymology, vertebrate anatomy and physiology and ecology. Through extensive laboratory work, students develop important laboratory skills, problem-solving techniques, research techniques and higher-order thinking skills.
