Certificate Course in Basic Biology


Course Title                             :          Certificate Course in Basic Biology

Course Description               :

Biology is the study of living organisms and their structure, life-cycles, adaptations and environment.

It is a natural science with a broad scope but has several unifying themes that tie it together as a single, coherent field. For instance, all organisms are made up of cells that process hereditary information encoded in genes, which can be transmitted to future generations. Another major theme is evolution, which explains the unity and diversity of life. Energy processing is also important to life as it allows organisms to move, grow, and reproduce. Finally, all organisms are able to regulate their own internal environments.

In this 15 Hour Basic Biology Certificate level course, you will deepen your knowledge of the many roles and functions of the biologist. You will learn from this Basic Biology course about the basics of biology, living organisms, ecology, human organs and cells, plants, and much more.
