The Understanding Cell Biology learning program is designed to introduce the fundamental components and functions of a cell. The program begins with an overview of the main structures of a cell. It then discusses specific cellular components and their functions. The next part of the program introduces DNA and RNA and explains how genes are used to make proteins. This is followed by an in-depth explanation of the life cycle of a cell from cell division to cell death including regulation of these events
