like it but it seems that the PhD is so fast but I used the subtitles.
By Hussein A. on 13. March 2019 for Translation – DNA, RNA and the Genetic Code

I really liked this site ,and it's seems helpful for me . I am a high school student. I am in the 10th grade right now. I just want to become a surgeon doctor because I want to save peoples lives. I know that I have to right a commit to this site and I do not have to introduce myself for you people. I do not need to study this because I did not understand today's subject.I just want to be ready for the medical school. I hope this website will help me being ready and ,Good Luck.

Very Clear Explanation!

Very useful for people who don't know much! Concise, and well explained!

All this concepts are difficult to explain but with the method that you apply is easy to understand
