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.

Super Teacher!
By Afolake A. on 13. January 2017 for Meiosis

Over the years, I have had difficulty understanding concepts in Cell biology but Dr. Cornwall explained it so well.

Informative and concise
By Thelma B. on 07. January 2017 for Cell Cycle & Controll of Cell Division

Informative and concise. Pace is good as you can always re-listen to the missed bits

In General very good well fone
By Teshome S. on 05. January 2017 for Energy, Enzymes and Metabolism

The Dr Georgina did it very well she know detail about the subject matter andinet did not express about her and execelentroll model for me!

By Jake Bryan C. on 05. January 2017 for Gene Expression

The topics dealing with genetics are disorganized and scattered across biochemistry, cellular biology, and genetics resulting to redundancy, overlap, and incoherence. Very good content but requires more organization and integration of topics.
