Chemistry Review the basics of chemistry you'll need to know to study biology.

Large Molecules Learn about structures and properties of sugars, lipids, amino acids, and nucleotides, as well as macromolecules including proteins, nucleic acids and polysaccharides.

Chemistry of Amino Acids
learn the structure and chemistry of the amino acids that are found within proteins.

Acids & Bases Learn about the solvent properties of water, pH, pKa and buffering capacity.

Clinical Correlates of pH Levels Learn how metabolic acidosis or alkalosis can arise and how these conditions shift the bicarbonate equilibrium. The body's compensatory mechanisms and treatment options are also discussed.

B12/Folate Learn which biological reactions require either B12 or folate (or both); what the consequences of a deficiency in either vitamin are, and the important step in which B12 and folate metabolism overlap.

Energy Reactions

Energy, Enzymes, and Catalysis Familiarize yourself with some key principles about enzymes, catalysis, and energy that are central to a subsequent study of metabolic pathways.

Metabolism Develop a basic understanding of some of the fundamental concepts of metabolism

Carbohydrate Metabolism Regulation Learn about the regulation of carbohydrate metabolism by insulin, glucagon and epinephrine, mainly in liver and muscle.

Photosynthesis 1 Study the conversion of light energy into different forms of chemical energy during photosynthesis.

Photosynthesis 2 Review the location and overall reactions of carbohydrate biosynthesis during photosynthesis, and understand the metabolic differences between C3 and C4 plants

www resources

Entrez, provided by the National Center for Biotechnology Information, is a thorough WWW resource worth exploring.

Biology Mad. This website is mainly aimed for students studying AQA (spec. A) Biology in the UK. It is informative, beautifully designed and easy to use.
