Biomolecules - DNA Replication and Sequencing

In this free online course, you will learn about the different techniques of DNA replication and sequencing.

Publisher: NPTEL
This free online course on DNA Replication and Sequencing describes how DNA duplicates itself within a biological cell and the problems associated with mimicking that process in a laboratory. It also describes how the PCR machine replicates DNA using fewer ingredients and less time. You will also be introduced to DNA sequencing methods and a special kind of chemistry called Click Chemistry.

Description

This free online course on DNA Replication and Sequencing describes how DNA duplicates itself within a biological cell and then compares that process with the simplified process of DNA replication in the laboratory. You will first learn about the problems associated with mimicking the DNA replication process that occurs within eukaryotic cells. This is discussed in detail to enable you to appreciate the PCR machine, which replicates DNA using fewer ingredients and less time.

Next, you will learn about the two most popular methods of DNA sequencing and some related numerical and chemical problems. This course also discusses the chemical synthesis of one compound from another, including the problems and solutions of the synthesis process. Finally, you will be introduced to a special kind of chemistry, called Click Chemistry, and its application in medicinal and chemical biology.

This course provides insights into modern trends and techniques in biology and chemistry and can be a valuable stepping stone to anyone who wishes to pursue studies in genetics, biological chemistry and/or medicine or those who enjoy these subjects. Why wait any longer? Invest a few hours of your time in this interesting course today and you will be able to make a more informed decision about your career and/or your future course of study.
