Genetics via distance learning

Specialist - Expert Diploma - Genetics Online via distance learning
Bachelor's Degree - Genetics Online via distance learning
Master's Degree - Genetics Online via distance learning
Doctor Ph.D. Degree - Genetics Online via distance learning

 

This program provides the most current information, knowledge, and applications in the field of genetics. Nowadays, the key to a problem affecting neurons, cells, and/or cancer may lie in the cellular and genetical research. In surveying cell biology and genetics, a person wonders whether to marvel more at the endless variety of living systems or at the fundamental similarities of the mechanisms operating in all living cells.

Genetics
This course explains the key concepts of genetics and the biochemical and biological principles behind its various applications. It moves from basic to advanced topics in genetics while providing an overview of concepts in modern biotechnology and molecular genetics.
Academic Supervisor : Jose R. Vazquez

Nucleic Acids
This course examines the chemistry of RNA and DNA, transcription, and splicing of RNA and their control; enzymology of DNA replication; the structure, replication, segregation, recombination, and function of chromosomes; and special topics on transgenics, genetic diseases, and cancer.
Academic Supervisor : Jose R. Vazquez

Molecular Cell Biology
This course examines the organization and functioning of cells and cellular organelles at the molecular level, their processes, and their regulation. It stresses on the experimental approaches and structural/functional relationships in the cell.
Academic Supervisor : Jose R. Vazquez
