This webinar on RNA is the second part of our two-part series on genetics, a major part of MCAT biochemistry. You will learn how to connect RNA with DNA with the central dogma, as well as how to apply your knowledge of RNA to important experimental techniques and data analysis.

At a glance


Essential skills

  • Connect RNA with DNA and the central dogma

  • Apply your knowledge of RNA to experimental techniques and data


Knowledge Fundamentals

  • The difference between RNA and DNA

  • The difference between RNA transcription and translation for prokaryotes and eukaryotes

  • The various types of RNA and their respective functions


On the MCAT

  • You will often see RNA experiments since RNA affects protein expression - be savvy about how you read problems and data

  • Not on the MCAT yet, but the COVID-19 vaccine was the first mRNA vaccine to be approved - know how it works!


I think these webinars are really helpful! I like how they’re styled like a TED talk, so they don’t interfere with the day, but they’re really helpful review 🙂

I found everything helpful about these webinars: the explanations, the illustrations, just everything!

Amazing material conveyed concisely and in great detail!

The wealth of information and sample questions are great.

“These 30 minute FREE, live videos conducted each Friday helped me get through the pandemic. Weike is an exceptional tutor, and being able to ask questions after she’s done was magnificent. These webinars have even helped me in class subjects such as Biochemistry.  I’m looking forward to starting one-on-one tutoring with Cambridge Coaching, and I’m already feeling confident about taking the MCAT when the time comes.”
