Molecular Biology – Part 2: Transcription and Transposition

Molecular Biology – Part 2: Transcription and Transposition

In Part 2 of this Molecular Biology course, you’ll explore transcription of DNA to RNA, a key part of the central dogma of biology and the first step of gene expression. Did you know that transposable elements, the genetic information that can move from location to location, make up roughly 50 % of the human genome? Did you know that scientists have linked their movement into specific genes to the causes of certain diseases? You’ll also learn how these “jumping genes” work and how scientists stu...

Molecular Biology - Part 1: DNA Replication and Repair

Molecular Biology - Part 1: DNA Replication and Repair

Note - This is an Archived course You’re acquainted with your DNA, but did you know that your cells synthesize enough DNA during your lifetime to stretch a lightyear in length? How does the cellular machinery accomplish such a feat without making more mistakes than you can survive? Why isn’t the incidence of cancer even higher than it is? And, if the DNA in each and every cell is two meters long, how is this genetic material compacted to fit inside the cell nucleus without becoming a tangled mes...

Demystifying Biomedical Big Data: A User’s Guide

Demystifying Biomedical Big Data: A User’s Guide

With the continuous generation of massive amounts of biomedical data on a daily basis, whether from research laboratories or clinical labs, we need to improve our ability to understand and analyze the data in order to take full advantage of its power in scientific discoveries and patient care. For non-bioinformaticians, “handling” big data remains a daunting task. This course was designed to facilitate the understanding, analysis, and interpretation of biomedical big data to those in the biomedi...

Probability: Basic Concepts & Discrete Random Variables

Probability: Basic Concepts & Discrete Random Variables

Our capacity to collect and store data has exponentially increased, but deriving information from data from a scientific perspective requires a foundational knowledge of probability.

Molecular Biology – Part 3: RNA Processing and Translation

Molecular Biology – Part 3: RNA Processing and Translation

In Part 3 of 7.28x, you’ll explore translation of mRNA to protein, a key part of the central dogma of biology. Do you know how RNA turnover or RNA splicing affects the outcome of translation? Although not official steps in the central dogma, the mechanisms of RNA processing strongly influence gene expression. Are you ready to go beyond the “what" of scientific information presented in textbooks and explore how scientists deduce the details of these molecular models? Take a behind-the-scenes look...
