DNA Replication and Repair

DNA Replication and Repair

by Kevin Ahern, PhD

DNA replication and repair are important topics for both biological science and medical students to study. You have to understand how these mechanisms work before prescribing drugs such as antibiotics and cancer chemotherapies. Here we will cover many topics such as:

  • DNA Polymerases
  • Ligases
  • Proofreading and fidelity
  • Okazaki fragments
  • Telomeres
  • Single Strand Repair Systems

Our high yield lectures will prepare you for your next exam! Quizzes and lecture reviews will help you retain the information. We want you to not only retain this information, we want you to be able to integrate it into other biochemical topics.

Thank you
By Abhay K. on 12. February 2018 for DNA Repair

Thank you so much Sir for brief description of all topics.

Well explained, using simple terms
By Siddhant G. on 07. December 2017 for DNA Repair

This lecture was very educational, and well organised, moving from the basics to the complicated topics, explaining every topic step by step.

Do better
By Neuer N. on 23. September 2017 for DNA Replication

few things are missing like discoiling of histone protien and a sentence is not repeates

Great lectures
By Jefferson P. on 24. August 2017 for DNA Replication and Repair

Brief and comprehensive lectures. Really makes mechanisms and actors really to understand.
