3.063 Polymer Physics

Class Info

The mechanical, optical, electrical, and transport properties of polymers and other types of "soft matter" are presented with respect to the underlying physics and physical chemistry of polymers and colloids in solution, and solid states. Topics include how enthalpy and entropy determine conformation, molecular dimensions and packing of polymer chains and colloids and supramolecular materials. Examination of the structure of glassy, crystalline, and rubbery elastic states of polymers; thermodynamics of solutions, blends, crystallization; liquid crystallinity, microphase separation, and self-assembled organic-inorganic nanocomposites. Case studies of relationships between structure and function in technologically important polymeric systems. Students taking graduate version complete additional assignments.

This class has 3.012 as a prerequisite.

3.063 will be offered this semester (Fall 2017). It is instructed by A. Alexander-Katz and G. Rutledge.

Lecture occurs 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 4-145.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.

7.05 General Biochemistry

Class Info

Contributions of biochemistry toward an understanding of the structure and functioning of organisms, tissues, and cells. Chemistry and functions of constituents of cells and tissues and the chemical and physical-chemical basis for the structures of nucleic acids, proteins, and carbohydrates. Basic enzymology and biochemical reaction mechanisms involved in macromolecular synthesis and degradation, signaling, transport, and movement. General metabolism of carbohydrates, fats, and nitrogen-containing materials such as amino acids, proteins, and related compounds.

This class has 5.12, and 7.01x as prerequisites.

7.05 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Spring semester, and will be instructed by M. Vander Heiden and M. Yaffe.

Lecture occurs 9:30 AM to 11:00 AM on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays in 10-250.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.

20.109 Laboratory Fundamentals in Biological Engineering

Class Info

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.

This class has 7.01x, 3.091, 5.111, 6.0002, 18.03, and 20.110 as prerequisites.

20.109 will be offered this semester (Fall 2017). It is instructed by A. Belcher, B. Engelward, M. Jonas, N. Lyell and L. McClain.

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.

20.310 Molecular, Cellular, and Tissue Biomechanics

Class Info

Develops and applies scaling laws and the methods of continuum mechanics to biomechanical phenomena over a range of length scales. Topics include structure of tissues and the molecular basis for macroscopic properties; chemical and electrical effects on mechanical behavior; cell mechanics, motility and adhesion; biomembranes; biomolecular mechanics and molecular motors. Experimental methods for probing structures at the tissue, cellular, and molecular levels.
