Needs a bit of improvement
By Jordan D. on 16. April 2019 for Autosomal Disorders and Genomic Imprinting

This particular class video is not very helpful at all. I feel like genomic imprinting can be explained more efficiently and more clearly than what is portrayed in the video.

got me through my molecular genetics module at university!
By Abs C. on 12. March 2019 for Medical Genetics

i knew next to nothing about molecular genetics, however after 6 weeks using lecturio ive gone from 20% in the practice tests at university to 70-80% each topic is subcategorised, easy to follow, and Dr. cornwall not only illustrates brilliantly but also delivers the otherwise difficult to understand material in a clear and concise manner,

Very good lecture!
By Earl N. on 06. March 2019 for X-linked Inheritance

Very in-depth discussion of X-linked inheritance. A very good resource for studying for exams on human genetics.

By Anya J. on 03. December 2018 for Review: Cell and Molecular Biology Course

You do a wonderful job of clearly and concisely breaking down concepts.
