Cell theory, which revolutionized the biological sciences, states that cell is the basic unit of structure and function of all living things; therefore, to understand how the organisms systems function and how they manifest their behaviours, we should study cell structure and function in a systematic way, which is called Cell Biology. 

 “the key to every biological problem must finally be sought in the cell; for every living organism is, or at some time has been, a cell.”

                                                                               Cell Biologist E. B. Wilson

Mycology is a writing intensive course. Subjects include fungal structure, function and physiology, reproduction, taxonomy, and the influence of fungi on human health and disease. Emphasis placed on medical mycology, plant fungal infections, including the production of pharmaceuticals and the impact of fungi in ecosystems as well as the elucidation of eukaryotic genetic principles, respiratory pathways and current research topics in mycology.

Virology literally means the study of viruses. Viruses are not only associated with disease but also can be the cause of cancer. Diseases caused by viruses include encephalomyelitis, the common cold, influenza, AIDS, herpes, hepatitis, hemorrhagic fever, and many others. It is important to understand that a disease caused by a virus cannot be treated with antibiotics. A virus is not a living organism because it cannot reproduce without a host cell. It is simply a protein capsule that contains nucleic acids (DNA or RNA) that are released into cells and in many cases causes disease.

The study of the immune system ultimately provides us with a fascinating insight into the relationship between animals, and the organisms that infect them (not only bacteria & viruses but also protozoans and parasites). There is a value, and excitement, to discovering how the immune system in different organisms works, merely for its own sake. However, understanding the immune system also gives us the potential to develop therapies that control infectious disease (this includes vaccines, of which a great many have now been developed), cancer, and other diseases resulting from the malfunction of the immune system.

In this course, we will focus on the molecular and cellular basis of the nervous system and how information from different sensory modalities is processed in the brain. We also discuss some of the neurological and neuropsychiatric disorders which occurs when something goes awry in the cellular and molecular machinery of the neurons, which are the basic unit of the nervous system structure and function.

Genetics is one of the basic science courses that comprise the Biology curriculum of the four years of Science College. This course discusses the principles of genetics with application to the study of biological function at the level of molecules, cells, and multi-cellular organisms, including humans. The topics include: history of genetics, model organisms, Mendelian genetics, extensions of Mendelian genetics, cytoplasmic inheritance, sex determination system, inheritance related to sex, chromosome aberrations, microbial genetics, mutation, mutagenic agents, DNA repair systems, regulation of gene expression, genetic transfer & recombination in bacteria, gene therapy and genetics of cancer.
The course covers the fundamental principles related to the practical
Immunology. Included are the immune response, principles of antigen-antibody reactions,
and the principles of serological test. This includes performance of serological procedures
used to aid in the detection or diagnosis of certain diseases.
Gravimetric analysis is a technique through which the amount of an analyte (the ion being analyzed) can be determined through the measurement of mass. Gravimetric analyses depend on comparing the masses of two compounds containing the analyte. The principle behind gravimetric analysis is that the mass of an ion in a pure compound can be determined and then used to find the mass percent of the same ion in a known quantity of an impure compound. In order for the analysis to be accurate, certain conditions must be met:

1- The ion being analyzed must be completely precipitated.
2- The precipitate must be a pure compound.
3- The precipitate must be easily filtered.
An example of a gravimetric analysis is the determination of chloride in a compound. In order to do a gravimetric analysis, a cation must be found that forms an insoluble compound with chloride. This compound must also be pure and easily filtered.
Due to the growing need to understand statistics for analytical chemistry, the Statistics in Analytical Chemistry series focused on the broad subject of regression, specifically calibration and recovery curve.
Mathematical Statistics course is designed as one of the main core courses for third year undergraduate students with prior knowledge of basic statistics (Descriptive Statistics) and probability theory. It is continuation for the previous year course “Introduction to Statistics and Probability Theory”, starting with a comprehensive revision of the main concepts of statistics and probability theory then the rest of the course will be devoted to order statistics, sampling theory and then statistical inference, which includes estimation and testing hypothesis including statistical tests; this will introduce students to elements of statistical inference and help them understand the role of statistical inference in solving real life problems.
Thermodynamics is the branch of physics concerned with heat and temperature and their relation to energy and work. The behavior of these quantities is governed by the four laws of thermodynamics, irrespective of the composition or specific properties of the material or system in question.
Medical physics: The science of human health and radiation exposure. Medical physics, also called health physics, is devoted to radiation safety.however, when used in large quantities or in unsafe ways, ionizing radiation can harm living organisms. Care must be taken to properly use equipment and to minimize the potential for unnecessary radiation exposure to individuals or environmental contamination in medical, research, or power generation activities. The health physicist is prominent among scientists charged with controlling the beneficial use of ionizing radiation while protecting workers and the public from potential hazards."
This lecture notes covers the principal elements of classical electromagnetic theory.
At the beginning of the semester, I will give them some subjects as a back ground for remembering the principle and the requirement as a gate for our major subjects including(Vectors analysis, Coordinate System, Divergence, Divergence Theorem, curl, Stokes’s Theorem, Electrostatic field, Coulomb’s Force, Electric Field Intensity, Charge Distribution, The Electric Potential, Electric Flux, Gauss’s Law).

After the students get ready, I will start to give them the new subjects including (Maxwell’s Eq., Poisson’s and Laplace Eq. in different coordinate, Electrostatic Dipole, Conductor, semiconductor, Dielectric & Capacitance, Boundary Condition between media, The Steady Magnetic Field, The Biot-Savart Law, Time Varying Fields and Maxwell’s Eq., Faraday Law, Propagation of Electromagnetic Wave and (Electric & Magnetic Energy Density) ….) which employ the requirement for this stage.
