Thanks in advance.

This is by far my favorite series of teaching, these are the most amazing teachers, and inspired me to get into medical lab science!

The human didn't evolve from the chimpanzee! Humans and chimpanzees evolved from a closely related common ancestor very different from both organisms.

Thank you very much for this.

I believe that etics is a major limiting factor for the progress in scientific research.

Alexis Cao says:

I just love professor Babara 's mastery of al the knowledge she presented and her absolutely fascinating enthusiasm.

The inaudible part is CRISPR/Cas referring to crispr cas9 mechanism of editing genes and DNA. Cas9 is the enzyme used for editing the genetic material if anyone is interested

This broad FAILS

Liberty says:

These professors are really cool. They are not trying to compete or use bravado to showcase whom is more intelligent. I had some professors when I went back to a local university and the professors gave the vibe of competition, anger, and in some cases closed off verbal language and body language. What person could learn from an instructor or professor if they bully, demean, intimidate or make clear you suck as an individual to them. Odd behavior. I like how open and kind these professors appear.

Escuela de Nivin - Casma - Perú says:

Great course.

Jacob Fanestil says:

Reading the fact that 1-2% code is for proteins made me take a pause. As a person with ehlers-danlos syndrome, which is caused by protein synthesis. Would this not be one of the easier things to solve for the public to solve?

Michelle Johnson says:

Which textbook are they using?

Kristina J says:

Omg!! Awesome!!!!❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

Will TheVideoMaker says:

The first few units have the similar curriculum as high school biology, but then immunology and microbiology topics are not covered in high school

Leismarr says:

13:56 Interesting.

sergio moreno says:

Absolutely fabulous, it help me a lot in my master

Putinnie Jimmy says:

First prokaryotes are not cyanobacteria. They are just one of the primordial bacteria which also include proteobacteria.
