Biology 101: Respiratory, Transport System and Diseases

An Introduction to Disease and Systems for Biology students.

Biology is multidisciplinary area of study that encompasses all aspects of living organism and their environment. This short course is one in a series that Introduces basic Biology concepts. In this course, you will understand how our blood moves around the body, the basic components of the blood and how the heart functions. You will also learn how our Respiratory system brings Oxygen towards our lungs, and how our lungs remove gases that are not needed by our cells. Finally, you will learn the basics of how our body will defend itself against diseases.

What you’ll learn

  • How our body defends itself against diseases.
  • The importance of the Respiratory System.
  • The effect of cigarette smoke on our Respiratory System.
  • How blood and nutrients are transported.
