Cell Biology Outline

An essential foundation course for all people interested in human health, animal care and animal studies. The cell is the basic unit of life. Its knowledge is most essential to understand how life works for higher animals and plants.

Cell biology is an introductory course designed for everone wanting to learn more about biology. This is a foundation course for those wishing to have a career in health sciences, biology and biochemistry. Upon completion of this course students should have a sound understanding of cell structure and processes.


Lesson Structure

There are 10 lessons in this course:

  1. Introduction to Cells and Their Structure
  2. Cell Chemistry
  3. DNA, Chromosomes and Genes
  4. Cell Division: Meiosis and Mitosis
  5. Cell Membranes
  6. Protein Structure and Function
  7. Protein Synthesis
  8. Food, Energy, Catalysis and Biosynthesis
  9. Intracellular Compartments, Transport and Cell Communication
  10. The Cell Cycle and Tissue Formation

Each lesson culminates in an assignment which is submitted to the school, marked by the school's tutors and returned to you with any relevant suggestions, comments, and if necessary, extra reading.
