These notes were the reason I achieved 90% on the final exam without having studied biology before. These notes covered ALL the content taught in BIOL1020 across all modules. The notes are presented in a well organised and succinct format which allows them to be uploaded to flashcard websites with ease. These are an all-in-one revision notes with each section summarised. The revision notes include the following sections: domains of life, universal cell features, prokaryotes, eukaryotes, endosymbiotic hypothesis, metabolism, Gibbs free energy, reaction energy, energy conversion, thermodynamics, exergonic reactions, endergonic reactions, ATP, cellular respiration, NAD(H), FAD, glycolysis, pyruvate oxidation, citric acid cycle, electron transport chain, chemiomosis, cancer cell metabolism, photosynthesis, cellular respiration, prokaryotic cell division, eukaryotic cell division, mitosis stages, cell cycle regulation with checkpoints, cyclin regulation, cyclin in the cell cycle, cancer cells and the cell cycle, oncogenes, tumour suppressors, cancer, macromolecules, polymer synthesis, breakdown of polymers, monosaccharides, disaccharides, polysaccharides, glucose configuration, GI, glycoproteins, lipids, TAG, fats, fatty acids, phospholipids, amino acids, enzymes, four levels of protein structure, DNA, nucleic acids, DNA replication, enzymes in DNA replication, leading and lagging strand synthesis, genes, traits, Beadle and Tatum experiment, molecular anatomy of a gene, chromosomes, histones, transcription regulation, central dogma of molecular biology, transcription process, RNA splicing, translation, ribosome, gene expression in bacteria, anatomy of bacteria genes, operon,repressible regulation, positive gene regulation, gene regulation in eukaryotes, chromatin regulation, transcription regulation, homeotic mutations, RNA processing, mRNA processing, mRNA degradation, post-translational regulation, viruses, tobacco mosaic virus, structure of viruses, viral life cycle, lytic cycle, lysogenic cycle, retroviruses.
