Molecular and Cell Biology

by Georgina Cornwall, PhD

Discover the complexities of the science of life!

Biology subsumes all the phenomena that make up life on earth – from the microscopic to the macroscopic level. This comprehensive online course will explore the smallest components of life: cells and genes. Cytology, the study of the basic units of life, and genetics, the life science concerned with the information that controls life, will help you understand life at the macroscopic level as well. Both fields of biology determine the way whole organisms function.

The main components of this course are:
  • Structure of molecules and cells 
  • Communication between cells 
  • Life cycle and metabolism of the cell 
  • Mendelian genetics and beyond 
  • Chromome theory 
  • Genes, genetic mapping and gene expression 
  • DNA: structure and replication 
  • DNA repair and genetic mutations 
  • Biotechnology
  • Genomics 
While studying, your understanding will be facilitated by matching diagrams and illustrations. By the end of this course, you will have gathered advanced knowledge of biology and be excellently prepared for your exams on this subject.

Thank you dr. Georgina Cornwall! Everything was perfectly understood with your lecture!

Too basic and lengthy!
By Thanks s. on 12. June 2017 for Cell Cycle and Cell Division

She spends half an hour explaining the steps of meiosis and doesn't even get into details... I'm not sure how she can manage to explain such simple topics in such a long time (it's half a movie time, for God's sake!). She should base her lectures on Molecular Biology of the Cell, by Bruce Alberts et al., AT A MINIMUM. Lecturio has many excelling lecturers; unfortunately, Dr. Cornwall is not one of them.

Love it ??

Stunning! Explanations are simple and very interesting, wish you all the best professor ????

shRNA & siRNA needed to be covered
By Hamad A. on 13. May 2017 for Biotechnology

I like the Lecture it explain many things but there are very important thinks haven't been explained like how to knockout some genes by using shRNA or siRNA. I know that you explain CRSPR which is the greatest method ever . But I think is necessary to talk about shRNA, siRNA and what the advantage and disadvantag because everyday in school we here about them and I think they need to coverd in this lecture. Thanks
