Students in this laboratory-based class will examine such disciplines as genetics, ecology, microbiology, biotechnology, and the theory of evolution within the framework that life is God’s most marvelous and complex creation. Students will gain knowledge of scientific method, classification, cell structure and function, cell reproduction, DNA, RNA, and protein synthesis. They will understand the subject from a Biblical perspective, as God created it and as man has learned of it. Lab work will allow students to gain an understanding of scientific processes and the evaluation of data in order to prepare for the study of biology at the college level. Biology is a mandatory science for graduation.
