The course provides overview of features shared by living systems, origin of life and development of livings and introduces the structure and function relationship at the levels ranging from molecular entities, through organization of the (particularly eukaryotic) cell and tissues to the relationship of organisms in an ecosystem. It further provides an insight into mechanisms underlying, transmission and expression of genetic information, heredity, ontogenesis of the cell and organism and evolution and introduces the diversity of modern organisms.
