Basic Knowledge of RNA

Ribonucleic acid, or RNA is one of the three major biological macromolecules that are essential for all known forms of life (along with DNA and proteins). A central tenet of molecular biology states that the flow of genetic information in a cell is from DNA through RNA to proteins: “DNA makes RNA makes protein”. Proteins are…

Deoxyribonucleic Acid (DNA)

Deoxyribonucleic Acid – Structure, Organization and Various Types of DNA. The chemical structure that carries an individual’s genetic information is called DNA. In this course by Academy Europe, you will learn about the structure, organization, and types of DNA. For examinations, the phases of the cell cycle are of great…

Gene Expression Transcription and Translation

Transcription and translation convert a gene into protein. During this process, the genetic information of a gene, the DNA, is converted into RNA so that protein may be realized later on. This course by Academy Europe will provide you with exam-related information regarding this process, thus preparing you ideally for…

Amino Acids and Proteins

In the human organism, proteins undertake multiple and vital functions. Structural proteins are found in each and every cellular compartment. Intracellularly, motor proteins power the energy-dependent transportation of vesicles. Signal proteins receive and transmit information. Transport and storage proteins bind, for example, oxygen, and carry it to a location where…

Gene Mutations and Repair Mechanisms of the Human Cell

Mutations are associated with diseases and defective genes. Mutated genes are actually the cause of many diseases, although they are also necessary. Without a permanent change in the genome, evolution is not possible, and purely static DNA would prevent any development. DNA is also the only molecule of the cell…

Regulation, Apoptosis, Mitosis and Replication of DNA

This course explains the semiconservative replication of DNA and the role it plays in the cell cycle. The phases of the cell cycle and mitosis (prophase, metaphase, anaphase, and telophase), as well as the regulatory mechanisms associated with cyclins and their antagonists, are all relevant topics in medical exams. Table…

Histology

Histology is the study of the microanatomy of cells, tissues, and organs as seen through a microscope. It examines the correlation between structure and function. Histology, also known as microscopic anatomy or microanatomy, is the branch of biology which studies the microscopic anatomy of biological tissues. Histology is the microscopic counterpart to…

Cell Biology

Cell biology is the study of cell structure and function, and it revolves around the concept that the cell is the fundamental unit of life. Focusing on the cell permits a detailed understanding of the tissues and organisms that cells compose. Some organisms have only one cell, while others are…

Molecular Biology and Genetics

Molecular biology and genetics study organisms on a cellular and molecular level. This is a rapidly developing field of biological sciences which has many important applications not only in biomedical sciences, but also in other domains such as agriculture. The study of living things at molecular and genetic levels have…
