How life is programed as genetic information

What kind of information is stored in our genes, DNA and chromosomes and how is it passed on? The study of genetics, one of the most fascinating fields in biology, is concerned with answering these questions. In this comprehensive online course, Dr. Georgina Cornwall will enhance you knowledge of genetics. Whether part of your pre-medical curriculum or your degree in the natural sciences, this course will help you refresh and revise your knowledge of genetics.

Among other topics, this course will cover the following aspects of genetics:
  • Mendelian Genetics and beyond
  • Chromome theory 
  • Genes, genetic mapping and gene expression 
  • Structure and replication of DNA 
  • Processes of transcription and translation 
  • DNA repair and genetic mutations 
  • How gene expression is controlled

Not relevant
By Catalina M. on 21. October 2016 for Genetics

I think the content is not that relevant for a medical student. Also de Professor is constantly looking down at the slides which is really annoying.

Once you pay for Lecturio, it's a lower quality experience. :(
By Anna H. on 11. September 2016 for Genetics

The free experience is not similar to the paid experience. I paid for the subscription, but there entire course has only 9 assessment questions -- only in the free videos. Once you pay for Lecturio, it's a lower quality experience. :(
