What makes us different? Every living organism is made up of cells, from single celled bacteria to complex organisms like animal and plants. This class focuses on the structure of DNA, what it is made of and how it is arranged. Students will also look at genes as packets of information, and be introduced to some key terminology to set them up for exams. This class is aimed at students in Years 10 and 11 but is great for any student interested in learning more about genetics!
