Overview

Find out how the body repairs and regulates itself

Every part of the body is made according to a code that is carried in the body’s cells.

This code is called DNA, and knowing how it works is fundamental to understanding how the body regulates itself throughout our lives.

On this course, you’ll get an introduction to the basics of molecular biology, and how DNA code works inside the human body.

You’ll find out what DNA code represents, how it creates proteins inside the body, and what key molecules are involved.

You’ll learn how molecules communicate and interact with each other inside the body.

This course is aimed at anyone interested in molecular biology and how DNA code works. Existing knowledge of components of the body is not essential but you may find it useful to complete What is the Body? first if you are completely new to biology.
