Year 1 (JF)

All of the Departments come together to provide an integrated course in Biology for first and second year students through the Course TR071. At Trinity College there is no single department of Biology; rather Biology is divided up into a number of disciplines or subject areas dealt with by the departments of Biochemistry, Botany, Genetics, Microbiology, Physiology and Zoology.

The first year course builds on the Leaving Certificate curriculum and, in a series of integrated lectures and practical courses, covers aspects of cellular biology, genetics, animal and plant physiology and ecology. There is a strong emphasis on the development of laboratory skills and this part of the course is continually assessed.
