Understanding Genetics

by Georgina Cornwall, PhD

Genetics refers to the study of gene inheritance and expression in living organisms. Traits are codified and passed down from generation to generation via genetic material. In order for traits to be materialized, they must be decoded and translated into protein via gene transcription and translation.

In this course, the student will be introduced to the Mendelian model of inheritance, chromosome theory, gene mapping, DNA structure, and replication.

For optimal comprehension, the student will be required to be familiar with the basic concepts of college-grade biology and chemistry.

Well structured and comprehensible. Ms Georgina Cornwall makes pleasant pauses between sentences, speaks clearly and explains so that it is easy to follow. The questions afterwards are also very helpful.

Good, but it could improve.

I liked this lecture and I also like this teacher. I just sometimes find the explanations a little be confusing.

Excellent lectures
