Title: Cell Biology and Genetics
Author: Twesigye, Charles K.
Abstract: We have structured the module for you into two main sections namely Cell Biology and Genetics. Section A will introduce you to cells (cell theory),the molecular and structural organizations of prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells (emphasis on eukaryotic cells). Other topics to be covered under section A include cell division, nucleic acids, colloidal systems(enzyme kinetics and metabolisms) and techniques in cell biology.

Section B starts with the history of genetics and moves on to genetic code and chromosomal theory(multiple alleles, sex linkages traits, crossing-over and mapping). This section also covers mutations and variations; elements of population genetics and the application of genetics in biotechnology, agriculture, medicine and industry. The section will also introduce you to principles of genetics with specific reference to the classical transmission of genetic information.

It is necessary to have a better understanding of the structure and function of cells (Section A) before you can link any advanced process such as cell division and the transfer of characteristics (Section B) to cell characteristics.
