How Does the Body Use DNA as a Blueprint? (FutureLearn)
Get an introduction to the basics of molecular biology, and how DNA code works. Find out how the body repairs and regulates itself. Every part of the body is made according to a code that is carried in the body’s cells. This code is called DNA, and knowing how it works is fundamental to understanding how the body regulates itself throughout our lives.
