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.

Not relevant
By Catalina M. on 21. October 2016 for Genetics

I think the content is not that relevant for a medical student. Also de Professor is constantly looking down at the slides which is really annoying.

By Arwa A. on 11. October 2016 for Cell Biology

Some parts that the instructor was going through were not gone into depth when they should have and some parts should have their own video.

Moderately brief and concise
By Conrad J. on 24. September 2016 for Cell Biology

Just an introductory lecture on any course enkindles a burning zeal to learn more. It is a perfect review lecture on the go and a better way to have fun while learning. A perfect definition of concise learning in a limited period.

I like it a lot. Good review. The slides for mitosis is the wrong one, ie different lecture notes
