A Level Biology - Biochemistry
Whilst studying A-Level Biology you will quickly come to understand just how integral biochemistry is to everything!
The fundamental concepts and principles of biochemistry are apparent in every discipline of biology, whether it be the simple diffusion of molecules across a cell membrane, the more complex biochemical pathways of photosynthesis and cellular respiration or the transfer of nutrients through ecosystems.
Biochemistry underpins everything in Biology! So make sure you have all the basic biochemical principles revised and fully understood - and begin to connect these principles with other topic areas too (right from the start).
The topics of Biochemistry are great topics for synoptic essays which will truly consolidate learning and help prepare for exams.
It stands to reason there will be lots of crossover into other biology disciplines here (for example, you’ll find the structure and function of DNA here as well as in the genetics section and you’ll find photosynthesis here in addition to the botany section)
Below you will find a list of A-Level Biology Biochemistry Topics listed alphabetically.
