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.

Way too short
By Natalie L. on 14. October 2017 for Cytoskeleton

Needs more substance. This was barely long enough to be an introduction.

More explanation required
By Natasha I. on 08. October 2017 for Closer Look on Replisome – DNA Structure and Replication

This lecture and the one before are not so well explained. The clamp loader part and the process of semi discontinuous replication need more in depth explanation

it was really helpful
By Dina A. on 02. October 2017 for Cytological Maps

it was really helpful,but a bit fast, good details and nice explaining

very good
