    What counts as general biology?

    When I went to college, I started out at an online university for two quarters before transferring to an in-person university. I took General Biology I at my online school, but obviously didn't have a lab since the courses were online. My college doesn't require a second semester of general...

    MD Bulk and vesicular transport

    What is the difference between the vesicular transport and bulk transport through the cell membrane? I read about both of them and found that they happen in the same way, but I don't know whether they are the same thing or not?

    Effect of Cholesterol on Cell Membrane

    Can someone double check if I'm thinking of this correctly? If the temperature increases, we want to decrease fluidity (higher temperature might cause the cell to “denature” and explode because of the more kinetic energy possible) to keep the cell stable. If the temperature drops too low (the...

    Taking intensive Organic Chemistry 1 & 2 and Cell Biology at the same time

    Background: I completed my first semester of undergraduate school and just started the second semester. I took Gen Chem 1, Calc, Physics, and some gen ed, but I found myself going crazy because it seemed like I had nothing to do. I finished all my work well before deadlines and it got to the...

    Rough Semester

    So this semester I took a heavier load than I had in my first 2 semesters. My classes include Evolutionary Biology, Cell and Molecular Biology, Organic Chem, and Zoology. My cGPA currently sits at a 3.4, but this semester isn't looking pretty. As of right now I have an B+ in Evolution, a C in...

    Cell Biology on DAT?

    I am currently trying to decide if I should take cell biology or not. There was a post about this but it was over 10 years ago. Talking to friends of mine who have taken the DAT they don't seem to think Cell Bio is necessary. I have taken Molecular and Microbiology, Physical and Developmental...

    Molecular Biology vs. Cell Biology

    Which course will be more beneficial to take first for the MCAT? I plan to take both of course before the MCAT, (planning to take it next summer), and I'm finishing up biochem this semester. Both are at the same times and I don't know much about either professor, and I was told both would help...
