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.

I love the breakdown.
By Timothy H. on 18. February 2017 for The Macromolecules of Life

Great breakdown of these biologically important macromolecules. Amazing detail on presenting each macromolecule and distinguishing polymers, monomers and non polymers.

 
Great Help.
By Timothy H. on 18. February 2017 for Energy, Enzymes and Metabolism

She is very detailed but yet not overwhelming with the lecture. It's been great help on my bio knowledge.

 
Great =)
By Gonzalo A. on 16. February 2017 for Energy, Enzymes and Metabolism

Not very hard to understand, sometimes a bit too "shallow". However most often very good. Even great.
