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.

Reading Notes
By Shaheen S. on 08. December 2018 for Growth Factors

I feel like she is just reading notes that she has been just handed over.

Smart Presentation!
By Ali A. on 06. December 2018 for Lysosomes

The presentation is simple, short and concise preparing students for more detailed content. I believe that this is an efficient approach toward a broader base of an audience. Thank you!

using other source than lecturio
By Ari C. on 01. December 2018 for The Macromolecules of Life

the course was good, the first video was condensed with a ton of information and I think you should maybe think about splitting this kind of videos in the future, I was finding myself watching other youtube videos to study this subject. it is always good to use plenty of different source of information to develop a wide perspective on a subject. but in this case, I want to rely on lecturio only.

Great easy to understand lecture
By Shalom G. on 28. November 2018 for Comparing Mitosis and Meiosis – Cell Division

Dr. Cornwall is very thorough and paces herself very well in relating core concepts.
