20.109 Laboratory Fundamentals in Biological Engineering
Introduces experimental biochemical and molecular techniques from a quantitative engineering perspective. Experimental design, data analysis, and scientific communication form the underpinnings of this subject. Examples of discovery-based experimental modules include DNA engineering in which students design, construct, and use genetic material; parts engineering, which emphasizes protein design and quantitative assessment of protein performance; systems engineering, in which students consider genome-wide consequences of genetic perturbations; and biomaterials engineering, in which students use biologically-encoded devices to design and build materials. Students complete some laboratory time online in advance of each class. Enrollment limited; priority to Course 20 majors.
Lecture occurs 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 16-220.
This class counts for a total of 15 credits. This class counts as a CI-M.
