Maximize your knowledge!

Cell cycles and cell division may seem like simple topics to review. However, the knowledge of these topics necessary to excel on the USMLE Step 1 is not easy. Remember, the USMLE Step 1 questions will not be simple. In fact, they will be quite challenging and require a deep understanding of Biology to answer them correctly, which is why reviewing cell cycles and cell division with an expert is a good idea.

Dr. Georgina Cornwall, a Professor of Biology at Colorado Mountain College, is a Biology. Her high-yield lectures will provide you with important insights into the critical concepts behind the science. Dr. Cornwall will give you clinical pearls of knowledge and guide you in the right direction, to best prepare you for the type of questions you can expect from the USMLE Step 1.

This course will cover all of the following, essential concepts:

  • Cell Cycle Controls
  • Growth Factors
  • P53 Gene
  • Meiosis I: Anaphase I and Telophase I
  • Human Karyotype
  • Meiosis in Humans

Don't just scratch the surface with your studying. Make sure you have a deep understanding of what you are reviewing. Let an expert help you.

Biochemistry with a smile
By Mark A. on 22. February 2018 for Cell Cycle and Cell Division

Great lecturer who is knowledgeable about the subject. However the animations in both mitosis and meiosis would have been in motion so the explanations were tuff to follow. overall good attempt. keep up the good job.

Explanation of concepts
By Emmanuel E. on 10. December 2017 for Homologous Chromosome Pairs – Meiosis

The lecturer uses great analogies to make concepts easier to understand.

Solid review.
By Selina M. on 27. September 2017 for Cell Cycle and Cell Division

Good clear concept review. Could use more specifics regarding cyclin and cdks.

Too basic and lengthy!
By Thanks s. on 12. June 2017 for Cell Cycle and Cell Division

She spends half an hour explaining the steps of meiosis and doesn't even get into details... I'm not sure how she can manage to explain such simple topics in such a long time (it's half a movie time, for God's sake!). She should base her lectures on Molecular Biology of the Cell, by Bruce Alberts et al., AT A MINIMUM. Lecturio has many excelling lecturers; unfortunately, Dr. Cornwall is not one of them.
