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.

Pls Get the Facts Right
By Ioannis B. on 17. October 2018 for Transforming Eukaryotic Cells

"... and we know that the DNA was taken up because the plant grows tumors OR NOT..." Taking the term "tentative scientific language" to another level!! LMFAO >D

Has zero details

In my school we will take this lecture in 2 hours!!! Way too short and superficial

Please re-record with another professor

She talks too fast. Also reads too much from her papers. Seems like she's not sure of what she is teaching.

She talks too fast. Additionally, she reads from her notes too much, strikes me as someone who does not have a firm grasp on what she is teaching.
