Broad spectrum over view useful to beginners as well as advanced learners. would have loved to be able to download slides along with Transcripts for later revision , Thank you UMCP and the Faculty !
I'm old - DNA was discovered in my last year of undergraduate studies. I am learning a great deal about what makes humans alike and different, what drives our behaviors. The course is informative
Really interesting material and well taught, even entertaining at times! :0) The quizzes were detailed but not excessively hard, and did a good job of assessing if you had learning the material.
This course is great for someone who wants to learn the impact biotechnology has made in our lives and it's future prospects. The concepts covered in the course have been explained very well.
Quality of the video is not very good and the course is beginning to feel dated ("by 2016 it is predicted that...). Otherwise, this is a wide-ranging and highly enjoyable course. Thank you!
It is very interesting, informative and educative to the BioTech lovers. The mentors are really nice to teach the entire aspects of genes leading to animal behavior. I liked it very much
The syllabus is very well designed and the modules are equally interesting. I'm so happy i learnt so many new things in just one course. Really looking forward to more such courses :)
I really enjoyed the course. It was very informative and the relatives used helped a lot. The best part was that the course aligned with my school curriculum. Double win for me!!!
Can genes make us liberal or conservative ? If you want to know about genopolitics and many other interesting genetics, do not miss this fascinating and enriched course !
This course was definitely helpful for me and introduced a new approach about human genetic evolution and biotechnology.\n\nI appreciate your efforts...Thank you all
This was an awesome course. Thank you for educating me on genetics. It has opened my mind to different areas of GMO's. I will continue my research on the safety.
Not perfect because in the video, multiple times the lecturer mentioned external information or links that didn't exist. No additional information was provided
Very interesting material, and very enthusiastic lecturers. I have done a few courses on here now, and this one has definitely been one of the more rewarding.
The course was very informational and motivating to not only biologists but everyone who has a craze to do something beneficial to this world. Well done!
This course was very informative.The concepts are quite easy to understand.I surely recommend students who want to learn all the basics of biotechnology.
The course packed all the necessary information and provide a fun session of learning and providing a better understanding of the subject.
An expansive survey with up-to-moment research info. Clears up many misconceptions about genetic engineering and biotech.
excellent way of updating my general understanding of a field tat as evolved a great deal over the past decades
I've quoted some things I learned in this class to others. Very informative. Simple. Concise. Very recommended.
I learned a lot from this course. It clears the basic concepts of genetics likewise instructors are also good.
