In Biology 12, we have the priveledge of studying the cell and how it functions. Processes such as DNA replication for cell division, protein synthesis for cell growth, enzymes for cell work and transport of molecules and parts are vital to cellular life. We relate the structure and function of different cell types to the workings of the human body. Body systems such as digestive, respiratory, nervous, urinary, circulatory and reproductive are studied in detail. Both the cell and the human body cry out praise to their Maker by their complexity, function and design. "For I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well." Pslam 139:14. But we also come to realize we are studying the body of a fallen human creature who is subject to disease and death due to sin.
