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.

great teacher
By Dinara Z. on 12. August 2018 for Ph Homeostasis – How Atoms Come Together to Form a Molecule

great lecture, very simple and clear. I've finally understood bonds!)) thank you!

 
Very useful for refreshment or introduction to Biology.
By Fatima s. on 31. July 2018 for Cellular Structure

I am a biochemistry student studying in the UK I found this so useful especially as a foundation in my initial year of study.
