Availability: Immediately available upon ordering.

Description: Online training with immediate access upon enrollment. BioPharma Institute ReviewsThis course is an introduction to molecular biology, with a focus on the techniques used to isolate, identify, modify and analyze three key molecules: DNA, RNA and proteins. The course describes the principle concepts and uses of each technique, using a case study to illustrate the relevant points. The course does not cover the protocols for these techniques.
Certification Requirements: Students must view the entire program and successfully pass an online, multiple-choice final assessment with >80% passing grade within a 90 day period of time (180 days for Professional Certification Programs). Certificate is accessible in PDF format immediately after satisfying requirements.
