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.

Unclear and hard to follow.
By Marquis H. on 09. December 2019 for Types of RNA

Didn't explain clearly and concisely which each type of RNA was as well as providing its clear function. Additionally, it is best to provide the correct definition thus, followed by an analogy. Starting with an analogy of how the different RNA types can make the lesson hard to follow as well as, causing confusion in the actual definition of the term. This particular video was hard to gather information from.

fascinating presentation
By Nyoni B. on 06. December 2019 for Prokaryotic Replication – DNA Structure and Replication

4/5 also add on the replication bubble but as far as the other information well done i understood the concept

Nice comparisons make it easier to learn and understand
By Tereza P. on 05. December 2019 for Chemical, Endergonic and Exergonic Reactions

I like the practical comparisons used for better understanding and remembering the topic, makes it much easier and more entertaining!

Concise and to the point for basic understandment of the subject
By Otoniel C. on 05. December 2019 for Comparing Mitosis and Meiosis – Cell Division

Concise and to the point for basic understandment of the subject.
