Gene Regulation

by Georgina Cornwall, PhD

Genes cannot be expressed constantly. Depending on many factors—the stage of the cell cycle and cell specialization, among others—certain genes will be constantly required while others can remain dormant for the entirety of a cell’s lifetime. Cells have a variety of mechanisms in place to regulate gene transcription and translation.

In this course, the student will be introduced to all the mechanisms that regulate genetic expression, including those 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.

Georgia Cornwall has done a conscientious job at teaching molecular and cellular biology -- and I enjoy it daily! :)

This lecture needs to be replaced
By Antonio M. on 19. February 2022 for Binding Motifs

This explanation was not clear at all. I had to research a lot of information elsewhere to understand the concepts presented. This is the exact opposite of what is to be expected of something that should make students life easier.

So confusing explanation.
By Jordi B. on 21. December 2021 for Binding Motifs

The concepts mentioned in this lecture are very confusing and poorly explained. She made no effort to clarify the meaning of homeodomain, homeoprotein, and other such concepts. Also, she seems very unsure of what she is teaching and the speed is too fast to properly retain the information.

Very condensed, but a well-taught lecture. I love the teacher´s style.
