Course Title:

Molecular Biology: From Nucleotide To Nucleic Acid

Course Outline:

This course will cover following topics:

  1. What is nucleotide?
  2. Importance of nucleotide.
  3. Structure of nucleotide.
  4. Organization of nucleotides into nucleic acids.
  5. Which nucleotides are unique in DNA and RNA.
  6. Timeline of discovery of DNA.
  7. Structure of DNA.
  8. Differences between DNA and RNA.

Course Description:

Nucleotides have a variety of roles in cellular metabolism. They are the energy currency in metabolic transactions. They are the constituents of nucleic acids: deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) and ribonucleic acid (RNA), the molecular repositories of genetic information. The structure of every protein is a product of information programmed into the nucleotide sequence of a cell's nucleic acids. The ability to store and transmit genetic information from one generation to the next is a fundamental condition for life.

This course provides detailed knowledge of the chemical nature and structure of the nucleotides and how nucleotides are organized in to nucleic acids found in most cells. Further, this course will elaborate the timeline of discovery of DNA. The helical structure of DNA suggested by Watson and Crick is explored. Lastly, the differences between DNA and RNA structures are also be jotted down. In addition to the well-illustrated video lectures, the core concepts are reinforced with quizzes at the end of lecture.

This course is a valuable resource for students and researchers related to biology, molecular biology, biotechnology, biochemistry and genetics. In the course, daily life examples are given to present the most challenging concepts.
