UNIT 1: BIOCHEMISTRY -

  • Technological applications that affect biological processes and cellular functions are

used in the food, pharmaceutical, and medical industries.

  • Biological molecules and their chemical properties affect cellular processes and

biochemical reactions.

  • Biochemical compounds play important structural and functional roles in cells of all

living organisms.

 

UNIT 2: METABOLIC PROCESSES

  • All metabolic processes involve chemical changes and energy conversions.
  • An understanding of metabolic processes enables people to make informed choices

with respect to a range of personal, societal, and environmental issues.

 

UNIT 3: MOLECULAR GENETICS

  • DNA contains all the genetic information for any living organism.
  • Proteins control a wide variety of cellular processes.
  • Genetic research and biotechnology have social, legal, and ethical implications.

 

UNIT 4: HOMEOSTASIS

  • Organisms have strict limits on the internal conditions that they can tolerate.
  • Systems that maintain homeostasis rely on feedback mechanisms.
  • Environmental factors can affect homeostasis.

 

UNIT 5: POPULATION DYNAMICS

  • Population growth follows predictable patterns.
  • The increased consumption of resources and production of waste associated with

population growth result in specific stresses that affect Earth’s sustainability.

  • Technological developments can contribute to or help offset the ecological footprint

associated with population growth and the consumption of natural resources.
