The module introduces key biological concepts and principles providing the foundation for future study. Dealing with life processes and living organisms, it links biological structure with function. Discipline specific themes are developed via partner units of study delivered in Semester 2. Laboratory and/or simulated practicals will link with the learning activities to provide experience of lab skills and consolidate learning. This will link form to function from cells and tissues to living organisms. Experience of collating observations and generating data will be used to write a laboratory report.
