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.

Clear and concise.
By Daniel W. on 22. March 2017 for Chemistry

I needed a clear and concise review of basic concepts. This definitely provided it. Well done.

nice and easy to understand
By salem e. on 19. March 2017 for The Launching Pad for Cell Biology

I'm fourteen years old and going through the course to prepare me after I finish my college ( last 2 years of high school in the US ) and it was easy to understand thankyou ps. I would prefer if you could go a little more in depth and slower. thank you

Really bad, with a mistake at rRNA and tRNA
By Youssef K. on 14. March 2017 for Gene Expression

very less details, more like an overview Really bad, with a mistake at rRNA and tRNA
