Acerca del Curso

Are you a living creature? Then, congratulations! You’ve got DNA. But how much do you really know about the microscopic molecules that make you unique? Why is DNA called the “blueprint of life”? What is a “DNA fingerprint”? How do scientists clone DNA? What can DNA teach you about your family history? Are Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) safe? Is it possible to revive dinosaurs by cloning their DNA? DNA Decoded answers these questions and more. If you’re curious about DNA, join Felicia Vulcu and Caitlin Mullarkey, two biochemists from McMaster University, as they explore the structure of DNA, how scientists cracked the genetic code, and what our DNA can tell us about ourselves. Along the way, you’ll learn about the practical techniques that scientists use to analyze our genetic risks, to manipulate DNA, and to develop new treatments for a range of different diseases. Then, step into our virtual lab to perform your own forensic DNA analysis of samples from a crime scene and solve a murder....

STUDY BUT FUN!! Make me now more curious about DNA and the amazing information that i can get about my ancestors by testing and analyzing my DNA. I never get bored since the week 1 till the end week!

I had difficulty with the voice pitch and rapid cadence of the instructors. While the program was meant to be fun, it was a bit too slap stick and stilted on their introductory spiels to the lessons. Would have liked a bit more science information rather than just passing comments during the lessons.

it's a great course with good explanation of scientific material, But it could be great if you added more details to it!

Felicia and Cait were wonderful. That's where the 5 stars end. The disappointment I feel is overwhelming. I was excited to have found a place to take classes where I could earn a certificate. The teachers for DNA Decoded Felicia and Cait were really amazing and I feel bad for them because overall, the support was awful. I don't know who to talk to, I don't believe I can talk to anyone. I just finished the course and it says my grade was 66%. I have no idea how this happened. I should have received a much higher mark. I was never able to use labster again and overall I am really upset and feel I have wasted my time.

An infantile way to present a complex science. Lectures, (videos and transcripts), are far to brief. No prerequisite mentioned. You will spend a fair amount of time researching off site to understand what is being presented. Check out other academic sources online! I did and it was free too!
