Biology is the study of life and embraces many different areas of both biological and biomedical interest. Studies range from exploring molecular structures, to understanding how genes work, the development and behaviour of microorganisms, plants and animals, their evolution, and their environmental interactions and impacts. It reveals core scientific knowledge of how cells and organisms function, and results in applications that underpin up-to-the-minute technological and scientific advances. You will study complex organisms and how they develop the correct cell types, tissues and organs to become complete. This is a revolutionary area of science and by manipulating and mutating genes, introducing new genes into embryos and suppressing gene expression, scientists are starting to comprehend the way genes control development. This can be exploited for disease therapy or for industrial applications. You will study a range of topics from basic anatomy and embryology to human genetics, sex determination and stem cell biology.
