Resource summary

Molecules to metabolism
  1. Molecular Biology
    1. explains living processes in terms of chemical substances used
      1. diverse molecular structure and complex interactions
        1. Nucleic acids - made of DNA and RNA used to make genes
          1. proteins diverse in structure & control chemical reactions of cell
            1. reductionist approach - breaking down into components
              1. emergent properties cannot be studied
              2. Synthesis of Urea
                1. produced by living organisms but can be produced artificially
                  1. nitrogen containing compound with simple molecular structure
                    1. produced when there is excess ammonia
                      1. cycle of reactions with enzymes

                            1. ammonia + CO2 --> ammonium carbanate --> urea + water
                              1. 100 million tonnes produced
