The Three Most Important Discoveries in Biology (in Dr. Coleman's opinion) 1. Cell Theory : all living things are made of cells, and all cells come from other cells. Biology can be understood by understanding cells. 1. The Biology of Cells is a result of physics and chemistry, in particular, the chemistry of biomolecules : the fundamental forces and principles of physics and chemistry apply to biology - there are no known " vital forces " that are unique to biology. 1. All cells share a common set of fundamental Biomolecules and chemistry . Two major consequences of this are: Biology is easier for us to understand, and with less work! We can, for example, learn fundamental things about human biology by studying worms and fruit flys, (despite what some politicians may say!) It provides strong evidence for the theory of common descent from a single original type of cell ( i.e. evolution theory)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
