20.309 Instrumentation and Measurement for Biological Systems


Class Info

Sensing and measurement aimed at quantitative molecular/cell/tissue analysis in terms of genetic, biochemical, and biophysical properties. Methods include light and fluorescence microscopies, and electro-mechanical probes (atomic force microscopy, optical traps, MEMS devices). Application of statistics, probability, signal and noise analysis, and Fourier techniques to experimental data. Enrollment limited; preference to Course 20 undergraduates.

This class has 7.01x, 8.02, 6.0002, and 18.03 as prerequisites.

20.309 will be offered this semester (Spring 2018). It is instructed by E. Boyden, P. So, S. Wasserman, J. Bagnall and E. Frank.

Lecture occurs 12:00 PM to 13:00 PM on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays in 4-237.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
