What if you could get a private lecture on DNA, genes, and genomes? This is what we are offering right here with our introductory biology class audio snippets. Our audio snippets cover a collection of topics that students often have trouble understanding. We included three snippets below from our iTunes U Living World Series to help you learn about the amazing how-to guides written in the DNA of all living things.
The instructor for your lessons will be biologist Jim Elser from the ASU School of Life Sciences. Pull up a chair and listen in as he talks about DNA and more.
