  • Description
  • Outcome
  • Certification
  • Cell division and replication are fundamental biological processes that occur in all organisms. This free online course about cell division will explain the complex processes of cell division in detail. You will learn about mitosis and meiosis and the phases that occur in each of these processes. You will learn that in the early stages of development embryonic cells can generate all cell types in the body. You will also look at how cells divide and replicate allowing us grow and repair body tissues, and if damage occurs, how some cells can replicate faster than surrounding cells to form tumours. This free course will be of great interest to all students who wish to pursue a career in the sciences, medicine, pharmacy, nursing, biology or biodiversity or the individual learner who simply wants to learn more about mitosis, meiosis and their role in cell division and replication.

  • Learning Outcomes:
    - Learn how normal cells grow by replication;
    - Understand how germ cells combine DNA for two donors;
    - Get an overview of the early stages of embryo development;
    - Find out how damaged cells develop and spread;
    - Get an understanding of the vocabulary of replication and reproduction;
