The first presentation in the ubio exclusive series ‘Biology for Computer Engineers’, gave an introduction to biochemistry basics and covered protein biochemistry. The second presentation in the series focuses on cells, which are the basic life forms. It provides short introduction to biochemistry of nucleic acids and lipids and explains the concept of ‘life’ and its evolution. It then goes on to discuss biology of the cell, especially cell structure and cell functions.
As in the previous presentation, the focus of this cell biology ppt is on highlighting the thread of common logic that runs beneath the enormous diversity of life forms, while giving an overview of biochemistry and cell biology. Future editions of our molecular biology articles will feature genetic biotechnology, bioinformatics and computational biology.
