As we grow from childhood to adulthood, our brain,  heart, and skeletal muscles increase in size.  How can  this occur if the cells in these organs do not divide? Genes dictate all the complex functions of our cells This is why scientists would like to understand how cells  read their genome and how gene expression regulates  cell function In addition, understanding cell structure, chemistry,  function and cell-to-cell communication, are critical for  investigating human diseases and deriving therapies to  treat them.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
