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, help you to get to grips with life at the macroscopic level. 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.

Excellent !
By Marco Mariano M. on 21. May 2019 for Polysaccharides

Easy to understand and fun! Really useful! Great examples are provided!

Really good!
By Rong F. on 24. April 2019 for Cell Cycle Controls

This is pretty good introduction! haha how to control the cell cycle

Great lec!
By Alexandra F. on 24. April 2019 for Understanding Genetics

I thought that this was very thorough and went over lots of the material that my current professor is going over. Some of the questions were either a little simple but reiterated take home points, or were left-field as the material was not covered in the specific video I just watched. Overall I would recommend this course to anyone struggling in genetics + read the comments because she does a great job in answering and clarifying questions you may not know that you had.

Good lecture

I loved the correlation with margarine and butter, it helps to understand and remember the topic.
