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.

Impeccable teaching- unforgettable learning!
By Nandita R. on 03. June 2021 for Introduction to Cell Biology

Covered a vast portion of the basics that are the most important part of the foundation. The structure of the course is phenomenal and the way it is carried out is engaging and made extremely interesting. Concepts are crystal clear after going through the whole course. Thank you so much, psyched to have found this! I only wish this material was downloadable for future reference. Hoping it could be. Thanks again! This has cleared the slightest doubts Ive ever had, hoping to have many more courses conducted by Georgina Cornwall.

still a good lecture
By Rodrigo R. on 03. June 2021 for Osmosis – Transport Across Cell Membranes

not very engaging with the viewer, and it could be even more dynamic

Hallow and confusing...
By Kazette Yuen Yu C. on 29. May 2021 for Overview of Transcription and Translation

This topic is OVERLY simplified. It needs more in-depth explaination, which she claimed to offer later. But this brief section creates even more confusion... Maybe it is better to do a PROPER introduction, or just cut this one out... Also, she herself seems to be unsure and confused. I am not sure what her profession is, but DNA doesn't seem to be a topic, which she should lecture on... In the middle of the video she just blanked, and kind of skipped on some points... (That's not the first time or first lecture that she does that...) P.S. The powerpoint is also not accurate... The coding strand around 0:52 is indicated as template strand... This lecture is quite disappointing, and frankly, a very low quality compare to other Lecturio's lectures.
