Biology and disease.
This unit – an appreciation of the physiology of digestive and gas exchange systems requires candidates to understand basic principles including the role of enzymes as biological catalysts, and passive and active transport of substances across biological membranes.
The variety of living organisms.
Although a species may be defined in terms of similarity, there is frequently considerable variation and this is influenced by genetic and environmental factors. DNA is an information carrying molecule, and similarities and differences in the sequence of DNA result in genetic diversity.
