BIOL1006 Life and Evolution

Credit points: 6 Teacher/Coordinator: Refer to the unit of study outline https://www.sydney.edu.au/units Session: Semester 1 Classes: Refer to the unit of study outline https://www.sydney.edu.au/units Prohibitions: BIOL1001 or BIOL1911 or BIOL1991 or BIOL1906 or BIOL1996 Assumed knowledge: HSC Biology. Students who have not completed HSC Biology (or equivalent) are strongly advised to take the Biology Bridging Course (offered in February). Assessment: Refer to the unit of study outline https://www.sydney.edu.au/units Practical field work: 11 x 3-hour lab classes, 2 field excursions Mode of delivery: Normal (lecture/lab/tutorial) day
Biology is an immensely diverse science. Biologists study life at all levels, from the fundamental building blocks (genes, proteins) to whole ecosystems in which myriads of species interact. Evolution is the unifying concept that runs through the life sciences, from the origin and diversification of life to understanding behaviour, to dealing with disease. Evolution through natural selection is the framework in biology in which specific details make sense. This unit explores how new species continue to arise while others go extinct and discusses the role of mutations as the raw material on which selection acts. It explains how information is transferred between generations through DNA, RNA and proteins, transformations which affect all aspects of biological form and function. Science builds and organises knowledge of life and evolution in the form of testable hypotheses. You will participate in inquiry-led practical classes investigating single-celled organisms and the diversity of form and function in plants and animals. By doing this unit of study, you will develop the ability to examine novel biological systems and understand the complex processes that have shaped those systems.

This unit examines theoretical and practical issues confronting global health professionals and practitioners, especially in low resource settings. It provides students with opportunities to apply their disciplinary expertise in the interdisciplinary, international health setting. The unit takes interdisciplinary approach to introduce students to: a) historical, political and economic forces that influence the health of populations around the world and contribute to international health inequities; b) global health crises (emerging infectious disease such as Covid-19, chronic disease such a s diabetes and cancer and disability) facing both developed and developing countries and their impact; and,c) international health initiatives and practices, including key actors and initiatives, as well as challenges and strategies for working in cross­cultural contexts. The unit provides students with an understanding of health determinants and interventions in international contexts, with a particular emphasis on low­resource settings. Examples of topics covered include health, poverty and inequality, foreign aid and development assistance, globalisation, technology and health. The unit also provides an introductory overview of contemporary international health challenges such as food security, humanitarian crises and climate change. Students will be introduced to global health data to better understand disparities in health and inequality. Students will undertake individual and group work to study global health from multiple disciplinary perspectives; they will investigate an in­depth study of a global health issue, analyse global health data to explore the context in which it emerged and the forces that propel it, and advocate for actions to improve the issue in a specific local context and population group.

The increasing need to address the health of Indigenous populations is not a new phenomenon. This Unit of Study teaches students, from an Indigenous Australian lens, about delivering services to Indigenous populations to address health and wellness. The semester journey takes into account the strength of Indigenous ways of doing, knowing and being that have enabled Indigenous people to address the social, political and cultural determinants of health. Students will be engaged in understanding the complexities surrounding the collection and recording of accurate Indigenous population health data that has led to Indigenous disadvantage and the gap in life expectancy that Australia still struggles to close. Students will be engaged in strategies for effective cultural communication with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health professionals and patients/ clients. Ethical approaches required for researching Indigenous peoples and communities will also be explored.
