This subject is in the first academic year of the degree and the only precedent that holds the majority of national students are knowledge from the Biology course of secondary education. Therefore, because this course is included in the basic common core, teaching is included in the first semester of the first course to provide students with the basic skills needed for other subjects. The course focuses on the study of the cell as the anatomical and functional unit of both unicellular and multicellular living beings, with special emphasis on the eukaryotic cell. The structure, function and biogenesis of its components as well as the mechanism and function of the main cellular activities will be treated in an integrated manner.
In the event that circumstances prevent access or presence to the facilities of the Faculty, the modality of non-attendance teaching would be adopted with the following assumptions.
1. Modification of the contents
No changes in content are planned
* Teaching methodologies that are maintained
The methodologies described in this guide will be maintained and developed by telematic means.
* Teaching methodologies that are modified
If necessary, the practical laboratory sessions will be adapted to the existing circumstances and, if necessary, they will be replaced by non-presential activities (methodological videos, study of microscope images, practical cases, analysis and interpretation of data, ... )
3. Mechanisms for personalized attention to students
Personalized attention will be limited to telematic means
4. Modifications in the evaluation
If necessary, face-to-face tests will be done electronically
* Evaluation observations:
The evaluation criteria will be maintained
5. Modifications of the bibliography or webgraphy
No modifications are planned. Additional free access means and sources will be provided if necessary.
(*)The teaching guide is the document in which the URV publishes the information about all its courses. It is a public document and cannot be modified. Only in exceptional cases can it be revised by the competent agent or duly revised so that it is in line with current legislation.
