In order to understand animal and plant development and reproduction, there is a need to understand genetics, variation and natural selection, which are the three most important mechanisms that lead to evolution. This section of Biology will help explain the structures of that enhance reproductive success within organisms. On the other hand reproductive Biology covers the remarkable diversity of reproductive mechanisms that both plants and animals possess. This course in Biology is a search for the features and processes that unify the remarkable diversity of living organisms and generally how both animals and plants reproduce.
Genetics is a fundamental base course for advance biology. It is the study of the function and behaviour of genes. Genetics focuses on understanding the process which contributes to the great variation of traits that we see in nature, such as the colour of a flower’s petals, the markings on a butterfly’s wings, or such human behavioural traits as personality or musical talent. This course seek to teach the learner how the information encoded in genes is used and controlled by cells and how it is transmitted from one generation to the next and also how tiny variations in genes can disrupt an organism’s development or cause disease. It also focuses on the contemporary applications of this science and its advancement.
