NST 1A Biology of Cells

BoCThis course introduces biology at the molecular and cellular level and considers what cells are, what they look like, and how they work. The course is designed to appeal to students who have no A level Biology as well as to those who have. Knowledge of post-GCSE Chemistry is, however, assumed. The course is complete in its own right, but it also provides a useful introduction to further studies in biology, biochemistry and genetics, for both biologists and non-biologists. The course is organised jointly by the Departments of Biochemistry, Plant Sciences, Genetics, and Zoology.

Lectures: take place on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 10am

Practicals: take place on Monday or Wednesday or Friday 11-1 and 2-4

Course Co-ordinator: Prof Alex Webb, Plant Sciences,
