This course delivers the fundamental concepts related to the characteristics of life, the diversity of unicellular and multi-cellular organisms, and the intricate workings of cells and their organelles. Students will delve into the distinction between prokaryotes and eukaryotes, while examining the unique features of plant and animal cells. The course also examines the vital processes of cellular respiration and photosynthesis, shedding light on the remarkable energy transformations within living organisms.

Furthermore, students will gain insight into the fascinating world of microbes, investigating their positive and negative interactions with humans and the environment. The course delves into the intricacies of the immune system, including the three lines of defense and the various types of white blood cells that play crucial roles in maintaining our health. Students will also explore the significance of vaccines and antibiotics in combating infectious diseases and their impact on public health.
Lastly, the course delves into the classification and understanding of infectious and noninfectious diseases, examining the factors contributing to epidemics, endemics, and pandemics. Students will explore historical and contemporary examples to gain a comprehensive understanding of the spread, prevention, and management of diseases at the global level, emphasizing the importance of public health strategies and interventions.
By the end of this course, students will have developed a solid foundation in the characteristics of life, the diversity of organisms, cellular processes, the intricacies of the immune system, and the impact of microbes and diseases on individuals and populations, empowering them with essential knowledge for further studies in biology and a greater understanding of the world around them.
