The Macromolecules of Life

by Georgina Cornwall, PhD

Macromolecules, also referred to as biomolecules, are the basic building blocks of cells and biological systems. All being carbon-based, they all play a role in different aspects of day-to-day cellular functions, such as energy storage, cellular architecture and metabolism, and the coding of information and expression, among others.

In this course, the student will be given an overview of carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, and nucleic acids.

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

I am in my first semester of Bachelor of Science in Biomedicine in Switzerland and the courses are helping me a lot. I can watch your videos after a whole day of studying and I am always having fun! I get a great overview and know what the most important concepts are. I also have no issues remembering what I learn here. Thanks a lot! I learn new things while answering the quiz questions as well, they are smartly structured and help a lot as well.
