Genes and Chromosomes

Lecture no. 3 from the course: Understanding Genetics: DNA, Genes, and Their Real-World Applications

Genes and Chromosomes

Taught by Professor David Sadava | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course

Where do you find a gene? Within each living cell is a nucleus, within the nucleus is a chromosome, and on that chromosome is the gene. Beginning with the cell, the unit of biological continuity, this lecture describes the physical and chemical environment of the gene. It shows us that you don't have to be a geneticist to figure out genetics, as a group of rabbis in A.D. 500 learned.

I could not get passed one lecture! Boring delivery, TMI and not enough practical applications. Too theoretical.
