Synopsis:

Basic information about the cellular level of organisms - from acelullar through prokaryotic to eukaryotic, endosymbiotic hypothesis. Structure and conformation of biopolymers (nucleid acids and proteins). Prokaryotic cells. Eukaryotic cells. Plant and animal cell structure and function. The nucleus, chemistry and structure of chromatin and chromosomes. Cytoplasm. Endomembrane system: endoplasmic reticulum, the Golgi apparatus, lysosomes, microbodies (glyoxisomes, peroxisomes), vacuoles. Semiautonomic organelles: mitochondria, sites of respiration and chloroplasts, sites of photosynthesis. The origin of eukaryotes: endosymbiotic hypothesis. Ribosomes. The cytoskeleton: microtubules, microfilaments. The cell cycle: mitotic (M) phase and interphase (G1, S and G2 phases). The division of cell nucleus - amitosis, mitosis, phases of mitosis, the mitotic spindle; meiosis. The cell division - cytokinesis. Cell differentiation. Cell death. Apoptosis and necrosis. Fundamentals of virology. Viruses - structure, life cycle and molecular biology. Viral genome.
