"This course provides an introduction to the classification, relationships, structure, and function of major animal phyla. Emphasis is on levels of organization, reproduction and development, comparative systems, and a survey of selected phyla. Upon completion, students should be able to demonstrate comprehension of animal form and function, including comparative systems of selected groups. Laboratory exercises include microscope observations and dissections to reinforce topics discussed in lecture."
Genetics aims to provide you with understanding of the law of heredity and variation of organisms. Consideration is given to the material base of heredity, the law of segregation, independent assortment and linkage and crossing-over; chromosome aberration, gene mutation, the relationship between gene and environment, quantitative inheritance, population genetics, gene, genome as well as gene expression and regulation.
Molecular biology is the branch of biology that deals with the molecular basis of biological activity. The field of molecular biology studies the biological macromolecules and the macromolecular mechanisms found in living things, such as the molecular nature of the gene and its mechanisms of gene replication and expression. Molecular biology chiefly concerns itself with understanding the interactions between the various systems of a cell, including the interactions between the different types of DNA, RNA and protein biosynthesis as well as learning how these interactions are regulated. Most of current topics in biological research are involved in molecular biology, resulting in the fast improvement especially after latest advanced technology. Molecular biology is closely related to other biological sciences such as Genetics, Cell biology, Neuroscience and Developmental biology. Its basic principles and techniques are essential for understanding such area of study.

Molecular biology is closely related to other biological sciences such as Genetics, Cell biology, Neuroscience and Developmental biology. Its basic principles and techniques are essential for understanding such area of study. This course emphasizes on understanding of cellular processes involved in the organization and expression of genetics information including systematic introduction to chromosome structure, DNA replication, DNA transposition, genetic code-deciphering, protein synthesis and transport, principle of gene expression and regulation, cancer and oncogene activation, molecular mechanism of HIV, and other basic concepts in molecular biology.
Cell biology is in close relationship with other courses such as biochemistry, genetic, molecular biology and medical science. This course introduces the basic concepts and fundamental theories of cellular biology including the structure and function of membranes and cytoskeletons; molecular basis of cellular structure, organization, proliferation, and movement; differentiation and functions of specialized cell types.
Physiology is a science of studying normal biological functions, and the regulatory factors involved in these functions. Contents of this course include: cellular fundamental functions; blood; blood circulation; respiration; digestion and absorption; energy metabolism and body temperature; urine formation and excretion; function of the sensory organs; function of the nervous systems; endocrine and reproduction.
"General Biology is an introduction to biodiversity and the process of biological evolution, including the knowledge hierarchies: taxonomy, animal diversity, plant diversity, and evolution theories. With the basic groups of organisms and their distributions as the focuses, the evolution of life as the main line throughout, the course lets students understand the whole situation of biological world and evolutionary rules. "
Biochemistry describes the chemical processes and mechanisms shared by all living organisms. The properties of amino acids; the structure and function of proteins, nucleic acids, lipids and carbohydrates; the kinetics and catalytic mechanisms of enzymes; the functions of vitamin, co-enzyme and hormone; transmembrane transportation; glycolysis; citric acid cycle; TCA cycle; electron transport and oxidative phosphorylation; glycogen metabolism; fat acids metabolism and amino acids metabolism are included in this course.
This course is a kind of outline course and concisely introduces all the basic principles and concepts of modern chemistry that undergraduates need to know. This course covers the following two major areas: Chemical principles and Chemical theories. The former introduces states of matter, chemical thermodynamics, chemical kinetics and chemical equilibrium (acid-base, precipitation, coordination, redox). The latter introduces the structures of atom, molecular and crystal.
Biology field practice is a practice teaching after the students learning botany, zoology or biology course. Through the field practice, students can understand and master the specimen collection and preparation method, animal and plant specimens for identification and recognition skills, animal and plant resources survey technique, and the taste of the local natural scenery and Humanities and social environment. Xishuangbanna Tropical Botanical Garden has 12000 plants and tropical rain forests, is an ideal place for biology field practice.
Ecology is a course of learning about interaction pattern of living things and environment. The relationship between ecological system on individual, population, community, ecosystem, 4 macroscopic level of life and their living environment, the latest research progress and its applications. Mainly include the relationship between organisms and environment, population dynamics and genetic characteristics of biological population, structure and development of biological community, biodiversity, service and management and global sustainable development relationship.
Evolutionary biology is the subfield of biology that studies the evolutionary processes that produced the diversity of life on Earth starting from a single origin of life. These processes include the descent of species, and the origin of new species.
Immunobiology is in close relationship with other courses such as biology, biotechnology, medical science, and pharmacology. This course introduces the basic concepts and fundamental theories of immunobiology from organic, cellular, and molecular aspects, including the development and maturation of immune cells; recognition of antigens, activation, and differentiation; and fundamental theories behind innate immune responses and adaptive immune responses.
