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.

Difficult to follow
By Jonathan S. on 23. January 2020 for Repressible Operons

This is incredibly difficult to follow with the lecturer mis-speaking constantly

I believe the term is entropy is misused in this lecture.

Nicely Condensed
By Gabrielle G. on 15. January 2020 for Introduction to Cell Biology

Most of us studying at this point (USMLE Prep) know this stuff well, however; this does provide a good refresher to get the juices flowing in the right direction while studying for the boards.
