Start preparing with an expert, an expert who has dedicated her career to assisting medical students meet their potential.

Dr. Georgina Cornwall, Professor of Biology at Colorado Mountain College, has been helping medical students prepare for the USMLE Step 1 for years. Dr. Cornwall knows what medical students can expect from the exam and how to prepare them for it. Especially when it comes to the topic of gene expression.

Gene expression is a difficult topic to review, which is why it is imperative to have an expert on hand to guide your way.

This course will cover all of the following essential concepts of gene expression:

  • Types of RNA
  • How to Translate the Genetic Code
  • Eukaryotic Transcription
  • Splicing Process
  • Charging of tRNA
  • Gene Expression

Micro-Lecture lacks the expected concentration of information. Lecture isn't linear in nature or coherent.
By Neuer N. on 01. July 2020 for One Gene One Polypeptide Hypothesis

I suppose it depends on your learning style. That is, most of the medical students I've spoken to, appreciate concise and coherent lectures - Unfortunately, in my personal opinion, this micro-lecture lacked the fundamental high concentration of information that most of us are looking for - to take notes, and practice the spaced repetition model. Instead, her speaking pace, and vocal expression are slightly too fast and the way in which she attempts to outline a basic idea isn't linear in nature which leads the viewer wanting to know more, while simultaneously trying to ignore the off-topic rants. Note: Clearly, she's qualified to teach - however, valid of a point that may be, doesn't mean she has the practical communication skills to do so. Therefore, this is not a question of intelligence, rather - communication and linguistic expression. There will certainly people who prefer this method, I however, can not recommend.

 
It's useful for me the videos
By Ivonne Azereth M. on 01. July 2020 for Gene Expression

I had many doubts but with the lection, I improved much better

 
Informative but sometimes confusing
By Seoyoung J. on 28. June 2020 for Gene Expression

The lectures seem to cover all the necessary contents, but it’s often difficult to understand the topic until I go over the video again for several times.

 
Very clear explanation
By Seoyoung J. on 24. June 2020 for Prokaryotes vs. Eukaryotes

This lecture clearly points out the differences between prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells in protein synthesis. It would be helpful for those who wish to briefly know how proteins are formed in each type of cell.
