This subject will introduce students to the role of cell communication, cell division, the extracellular matrix and the arrangement of cells in organ systems and cellular differentiation. Students will learn about the structure and function of the cell, the difference between prokaryotes and eukaryotes, and the role of cellular organelles, compartmentation and membranes in cellular function. In addition, they will be introduced to the role of major macromolecules within cells, such as proteins, carbohydrates, lipids and nucleic acids. The subject will provide the necessary foundational knowledge for further subjects in the area of cellular and molecular biology and physiology.
