Bioenergética é usar a palavra energia para explicar os fenômenos do organismo vivo. Estuda as transformações permitidas e quais são as proibidas; como o organismo escolhe, entre várias transformações possíveis, aquelas que levam ao crescimento e à multiplicação; como as leis da termodinâmica moldam as possibilidades do ser vivo.

Marine Biology is the study of ocean life. As you might expect, life in salt water is vastly different from life in a terrestrial or freshwater environment due to factors like salinity, water circulation, and atmospheric pressure. How, for example, can organisms living in salt water avoid dehydration? How do organisms living in the depths of the ocean handle the immense pressure? How do the environmental factors in marine communities affect biodiversity? How do some animals manage to alternate between the demands of terrestrial life and the demands of marine life? In this course, you will learn the answers to these questions and more. This course will touch on a number of different subfields of biological study (including biochemistry, physiology, zoology, botany, and ecology) within the context of the ocean environment.

The advent of computers transformed science. Large, complicated datasets that once took researchers years to manually analyze could suddenly be analyzed within a week using computer software. Computational biology refers to the use of computers to automate data analysis or model hypotheses in the field of biology.

The cell is the fundamental unit of life; in fact, the smallest living organisms are composed of a single cell. We have learned that, despite their small size, cells are far from simple, and we have only recently begun to understand just how complex they are. This course will present you with a detailed overview of a cell’s main components and functions.

While biologists have long understood the power of disease to shape events in world history, the depth of that power has rarely emerged in history books. This course seeks to redress that imbalance through historical anecdote and scientific explanation as it investigates the ways in which diseases have affected dramatically the course of history across several topics, including religion, war, and migration.
