About Course

Molecular Biology is a branch of biology that studies the molecular basis of biological activity in any organism. It is the study of life at a molecular level. It is the field of science that is concerned with chemical structures and a variety of biological processes that includes the basic units of life i.e., nucleic acids (DNA and RNA) and proteins. It also helps us to understand the interaction between these essential macromolecules at the cellular level. A molecular biologist studies how molecules interact with one another in living organisms to perform the functions of life.

BioCode is offering a Molecular Biology MasterClass course which will help you learn the underlying concepts of molecular biology and provide you with the knowledge of how biological data is generated such as genomics, transcriptomics, and even regulatory DNA dataset and the practical applications of bioinformatics that can be beneficial for you and your research career. By the end of this course, you will have a greater understanding of Molecular Biology, how, why, when, and which molecular biology concepts work.

This course is for absolute beginners in Molecular Biology and you don’t require any prior knowledge of Molecular Biology or even biology to get started with this course. This course will also provide you with a great foundation and understanding of bioinformatics data analysis because you will gain insights into cellular biology, DNA replication, protein structures, and their characteristics, biological data generation, and many other concepts of molecular biology.
