Unformatted text preview: The Biological Sciences 2 series introduces students to the principles on which all life--from the smallest, simplest organisms to the largest communities--is based. Biological Sciences 2A concentrates on the cellular basis of life , concentrating on the structures and functions of cells and the biological molecules from which they are formed, the ways by which cells acquire, transform, and use chemical energy , and the mechanisms by which genetic information is stored, safeguarded, transmitted from one generation to the next, and used in reproduction and development , with the immune systems serving as a example of complex eukaryotic development. Students are asked to use the principles and information covered in the class to interpret historical and current observations and to solve problems.
