Gene Expression

by Georgina Cornwall, PhD

Traits are codified and passed down from generation to generation via genetic material. In order for traits to be materialized, they must be decoded and translated into proteins via gene transcription and translation.

In this course, the student will be introduced to the processes of transcription and translation in eukaryotes and prokaryotes.

For optimal comprehension, the student will be required to be familiar with the basic concepts of college-grade biology and chemistry.

By Jamshed B. on 04. January 2022 for Gene Expression

very good knowledge gained. Learnt a lot about RNA and DNA and messenger RNA

Topic should be presented in a better way
By Stella P. on 11. August 2021 for Overview of Transcription and Translation

A student could do this lecture and it would be easier to understand. we expect better lectures from professors.

Hallow and confusing...
By Kazette Yuen Yu C. on 29. May 2021 for Overview of Transcription and Translation

This topic is OVERLY simplified. It needs more in-depth explaination, which she claimed to offer later. But this brief section creates even more confusion... Maybe it is better to do a PROPER introduction, or just cut this one out... Also, she herself seems to be unsure and confused. I am not sure what her profession is, but DNA doesn't seem to be a topic, which she should lecture on... In the middle of the video she just blanked, and kind of skipped on some points... (That's not the first time or first lecture that she does that...) P.S. The powerpoint is also not accurate... The coding strand around 0:52 is indicated as template strand... This lecture is quite disappointing, and frankly, a very low quality compare to other Lecturio's lectures.

It could be better.

More organization is needed to explain this lecture because is an important part of the DNA synthesis.
