||Students who complete this course are prepared for university and college career programs requiring a knowledge of more advanced biological concepts. Students will investigate
- Energy relationships, metabolic reactions and enzyme requirements
- Genetics and genomics
- Biotechnological applications in medicine, agriculture and pharmaceuticals
- Effects of ingested pharmaceutical products on homeostasis.
The course allows students to
- Explore the importance of evolution and evolutionary mechanisms in the formation of new species over time
- Compare population dynamics over time with the effects of over-population on global warming, species disappearance, distribution of resources and
- Investigate different types of community interactions in the biological world of living organisms.
Students are expected to do a considerable amount of independent study and research outside of the classroom, using the library and the internet. Some laboratory work is included.
