162.101 Cell Biology (15 credits)
An introduction to the cellular basis of life. Spanning eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells; cellular structure and function; core biochemical components; mechanisms for generating genetic diversity; the flow of information within cells and between generations; gene expression; and a survey of the landscape of modern genomics, this course provides the conceptual foundation for subsequent courses on molecules, cells and organisms.
- Passes in the following NCEA standards are highly recommended: level 1, AS90927 (microorganisms); level 2, AS91153 (practical investigation), AS91156 (cellular processes), AS91157 (genetic variation), AS91159 (gene expression); and at least 14 credits of Biology at level 3, or a pass in 162.103. This course is tough if you don’t have the background. Find out if you have what you need by taking this biology readiness quiz.
