7.18 Topics in Experimental Biology

Class Info

Independent experimental study under the direction of a member of the Biology Department faculty. Allows students with a strong interest in independent research to fulfill the project laboratory requirement for the Biology Department Program in the context of a research laboratory at MIT. The research must be conducted on the MIT campus and be a continuation of a previous 12-unit UROP project or full-time work over the summer. Written and oral presentation of the research results is required. Journal club discussions are used to help students evaluate and write scientific papers. Instruction and practice in written and oral communication is provided. Permission of the faculty research supervisor and the Biology Education Office must be obtained in advance.

This class has 7.06, 5.362, 7.02, and 20.109 as prerequisites.

7.18 will be offered this semester (Spring 2019). It is instructed by J. Chen, A. J. Sinskey and C. Kaiser.

Lecture occurs 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 68-156.

This class counts for a total of 30 credits. This class counts as a CI-M.

Class Info

Experimental techniques in cellular and molecular neurobiology. Designed for students without previous experience in techniques of cellular and molecular biology. Experimental approaches include DNA manipulation, molecular cloning, protein biochemistry, dissection and culture of brain cells, synaptic protein analysis, immunocytochemistry, and fluorescent microscopy. One lab session plus one paper review session per week. Instruction and practice in written communication provided. Limited to 22 due to lab capacity.

This class has 7.01x, and 9.01 as prerequisites.

9.12 will be offered this semester (Spring 2019). It is instructed by G. Choi.

Lecture occurs 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM on Tuesdays in 46-1015.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits. This class counts as a CI-M.

21W.765 Interactive Narrative

Class Info

Provides a workshop environment for understanding interactive narrative (print and digital) through critical writing, narrative theory, and creative practice. Covers important multisequential books, hypertexts, and interactive fictions. Students write critically, and give presentations, about specific works; write a short multisequential fiction; and develop a digital narrative system, which involves significant writing and either programming or the structuring of text. Programming ability helpful.

This class has no prerequisites.

21W.765 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Fall semester, and will be instructed by N. Montfort.

Lecture occurs 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM on Wednesdays in 66-160.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits. This class counts as a HASS A. This class counts as a CI-M.
