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.

I am learning something new with each lecture
By Michael R. on 25. February 2018 for Introduction to Cell Biology

I really loved it, because PhD Cornwall made it really easy to understand.

Biochemistry with a smile
By Mark A. on 25. February 2018 for Energy, Enzymes and Metabolism

This lecture was excellent in every way, I must say DR. Cornwall is a Pro in intermediate metabolism. I couldn't understand this processes better in medical school than she has made me.

5 Stars
By Yunior M. on 24. February 2018 for The Macromolecules of Life

Brilliant. I recommend this course strongly if you want to understand this topic.

Cellular Structure.
By Hamed A. on 23. February 2018 for Cellular Structure

Based on explaination. I felt there was some lack of informations. In some area needs to be more profound.
