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.

more elobrartion needed, its just glimpse. everyone needs tough things easy. not a easy thing.

High yield information
By Daren O. on 03. February 2019 for Biotechnology

Well done! Very targeted information. For those that say it’s not as deep as their classroom lecture, it is not designed to be. Again,what we are supposed to get out of this course is the high yield information...and we are getting it. Thank you so much Dr. Cornwall.

Easy to understand...high yield information....great graphics,well done!

making genetics easier
By Neuer N. on 15. January 2019 for Understanding Genetics

Easier to comprehend with the use of great illustrations. concise and crisp presentations
