About the Course

Molecular biology as we know today, emerged with the discovery of the structure of DNA in the 1960s. Molecular biology states that information flow in organisms is unilateral: Genes are transcribed into RNA, and RNA is translated into proteins.
Molecular biology is a specialized branch of biochemistry, brought into existence by the collaborative efforts of physicists, chemists and biologists and is a study of the chemistry of molecules that are specifically connected to vital living processes.
We have created a course on biochemistry in molecular biology which will teach you about the fundamental units of DNA from bases, sugars and phosphoric acid together forming nucleosides and nucleotides to the structural shaping of DNA molecules. You will be taken through the replication process of DNA involving transcription and translation. Concept of mutation that has a profound clinical significance is discussed in detail. Recombinant DNA technology and gene therapy are also introduced in this model. Interactive exercises at the end of each topic are of immense help and promote better learning.

Target Audience

Medical students – Allopathy, Dental.
Alternative Medicine students – Homeopathy, Ayurveda.
Para/Allied medical students – Nursing, Physiotherapy, Medical lab technicians, BSc Biochemistry.
Postgraduate students – General medicine, Family Medicine, Pediatrics, Embryology, Genetics, Biology, MD/MSc/PhD Biochemistry.

Course Delivery Format

This course is delivered entirely online. It consists of a series of comprehensive lectures by a professor in the subject, appropriately annotated with slides, animations and wherever necessary, interactive content. The delivery offers tremendous flexibility. You may pause a teacher while you refer to your textbooks (not includes) and to take notes. You may also rewind a segment to listen to the teacher again or you may skip a slide or two if you already know that bit. You may bookmark a segment that you wish to return to later, maybe to refresh just before your exams.  While the lessons in this course may be arranged in a particular order based on our curriculum, you have the flexibility to take them in order of your preference based on your personalized learning needs.


While this course is to help you learn the subject from an online faculty, it may help you in several ways even if you are already enrolled in some medical, dental or paramedical school. Many of our students felt that the format in which this course is delivered has helped them to cope up against the fast paced lectures in actual class – it’s like having a TV remote in class to self-pace your teacher. Animations help understand concepts better by making concepts easy to understand… and difficult to forget.
