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.

Concise and easy to follow
By Andrea E. on 18. March 2019 for Periodic Table for Biology – Chemistry

I found this lecture very concise and easy to despite being quite basic. I have always struggled with understanding atomic structure and feel that it's due to information overload. This lecture provides just the right amount of information to build on.

Good lecture

By Ameck T. on 04. March 2019 for Ph Homeostasis – How Atoms Come Together to Form a Molecule

I liked it very much because it helped me access materiel that I already new without further complications. It was very easy to comprehend and I will recommend this to everybody needing this for whatever the reasons you need it for.
