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.

Good lecture indeed!
By Mahziar K. on 12. September 2021 for Probes and Blotting Methods

I liked the lecture. It was clear and concise. I liked it better if the lecturer used more visuals of techniques.

 
Detailed
By NICOLE G. on 11. September 2021 for Cell Cycle and Cell Division

Very informative and detailed. It allows you to understand the concepts on a fundamental level.

 
Good, but it could improve.
By Julia d. on 13. August 2021 for Phenotypes Affected by Environment and Epistasis – Beyond Gregor Mendel

I liked this lecture and I also like this teacher. I just sometimes find the explanations a little be confusing.

 
Topic should be presented in a better way
By Stella P. on 11. August 2021 for Overview of Transcription and Translation

A student could do this lecture and it would be easier to understand. we expect better lectures from professors.
