Welcome Greenville High!!
Welcome to Mr. Bailey's Biology class! We will be diving into the study of life. This year we will be studying units based around the standards on scientific inquiry, biochemistry, cell structure, function, and transport, the processes by which cells create and use energy, cell division and differentiation, DNA replication and protein synthesis, biotechnology, genetics and heredity, evolution, and ecology. I look forward to learning through scientific investigation with you!
