It's fine
By Ramsey H. on 16. September 2020 for Carbohydrate Metabolism

It's good, informative not as detailed as I need it to be but it's a good framework to build on

 
great

Good explanation. Pretty bad diagram. Animation probably would work better.

 
Review
By KARMELIA S. on 06. September 2020 for Pyrimidine de novo Metabolis: OMP Decarboxylase and Synthesis of UTP & CTP

First of all, I like the depth of this lecture and Professor Ahern is clearly very knowledgeable and concise on the the topic being discussed. And I also like due to the fact that this video is clearly a high-yield resource which is very helpful for my upcoming medical exam. However, I believe that this could have been better had the previous cycles preceding the formation of OMP explained as well in order for us the students to be able to get the essence of the information better. That's all I have got to say
