An ester is an organic compound containing an oxygen
atom between 2 carbon atoms in a chain (Nelson 135).
There are two types of esters; natural and synthetic. Natural
esters are the odours present in plants (ex. fruits, flowers)

The Different Roles of Macromolecules in Biology
There are four types of macromolecules that I am going to describe:
Proteins, carbohydrates, lipids and nucleic acid. I will also describe
the functions and why they are important in our bodies.
Biology and Philosophy of hormones
What does it mean to love another person? This question is one that virtually every person has
asked himself at some point; virtually every school of thought that exists has attempted to
provide an answer of some sort. I
How to write a good biology review paper
A review is a comprehensive synthesis of results from a wide and complex set of studies
A synthesis of findings rather than ideas.
Goal of a review paper is to help readers make sense of all available information
Synoptic biology is the ability to select and apply general principles
to unfamiliar situations/data.
Modules 5 and 8 will have questions that test your understanding of
modules 1,2,3 and 4. This is called the synoptic assessment.
The immune system is an elegant system of defense against foreign invaders. It is able to
successfully recognize and distinguish between thousands of different antigens. How is such
complete recognition possible considering all the var

factor in the fitness of the environment. If ice sank, then eventually all ponds, lakes, and even
oceans would freeze solid, making life
Introduction to Biological Technicalities
Biology is the science of living systems. It is inherently interdisciplinary, requiring knowledge of
the physical sciences and mathematics, although specialities may be oriented toward a group of
organisms or a le
