Module 11

Molecular genetics is the study of genetic material and its activity at the molecular level. It is a large field encompassing the expression and regulation of genes at the molecular level, the processes underlying cellular reproduction, genetic recombination and the investigative strategies of the modern molecular biology laboratory.

In Module 1 we begin a regular practice of reading from a variety of nonfiction sources. In addition to beginning our regular reading, we also begin the process of breaking down the CARS exam format as a form with its own set of rules. The better you understand the methods and intentions of the test-writers, the better you will become at interpreting CARS questions.
