BIO101: Introduction to Molecular and Cellular Biology

This course is intended for the student interested in understanding and appreciating common biological topics in the study of the smallest units within biology: molecules and cells. Molecular and cellular biology is a dynamic field. There are thousands of opportunities within the medical, pharmaceutical, agricultural, and industrial fields (just to name a few) for a person with a concentrated knowledge of molecular and cellular processes. This course will give you a general introduction to these topics. In addition to preparing for a diversity of career paths, an understanding of molecular and cell biology will help you make sound decisions in your everyday life that can positively impact your diet and health. This course includes the following units: Unit 1: Introduction to Biology Unit 2: Basic Chemistry Unit 3: Biological Molecules Unit 4: Cells and Cell Membranes Unit 5: Enzymes, Metabolism, Cellular Respiration Unit 6: Photosynthesis Unit 7: Cellular Reproduction: Mitosis Unit 8: Cellular Reproduction: Meiosis Unit 9: Mendelian Genetics and Chromosomes Unit 10: Gene Expression

This online learning materials provide me a deeper knowledge of Molecular and Cellular Biology, which can help students with biology subjects. Besides, it provides certain quiz and exam, so I can do exercise before my real mid-term quiz. Also, it contains a variety of photos and resources, so I can learn more about the topic I interested.
