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.

This lecture is the best for medical student.I found it so useful in molecular biology and genetics and also so studying cardiov
By Damilola A. on 12. December 2017 for Nucleic Acids

The lecture were short and concise and were just thesame as what I needed to learn.

Explanation of concepts
By Emmanuel E. on 10. December 2017 for Homologous Chromosome Pairs – Meiosis

The lecturer uses great analogies to make concepts easier to understand.

The best lecture I have had so far
By Jacqueline A. on 29. November 2017 for Cellular Structure

Every topic was clearly explained and I could understand them very well.

Not in details
By Abdulrahman A. on 28. November 2017 for Closer Look on Replisome – DNA Structure and Replication

These lectures are good , but it needs improvement it should be more in details , and the actions are not mentioned in its orders for example first of all initiation then elongation finally termination ..
