7.09 Quantitative and Computational Biology
Quantitative and computational analysis of biological systems at the molecular and cellular level. Includes models of biological processes across different time scales, from steady-state to kinetics of gene expression, circadian clock, cell growth, and evolutionary dynamics. Methods include physical, systems, and synthetic biology. Also covers second-generation sequencing technologies, and topics in computational analysis of genomes, including sequence alignment, motif finding, information theory and RNA secondary structure prediction.
Lecture occurs 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 56-154.
This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
7.18 Topics in Experimental Biology
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.
Lecture occurs 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 68-121.
This class counts for a total of 30 credits. This class counts as a CI-M.

7.37 Molecular and Engineering Aspects of Biotechnology
Covers biological and bioengineering principles underlying the development and therapeutic use of recombinant proteins and stem cells; glycoengineering of recombinant proteins; normal and pathological signaling by growth factors and their receptors; receptor trafficking; monoclonal antibodies as therapeutics; protein pharmacology and delivery; stem cell-derived tissues as therapeutics; RNA therapeutics; combinatorial protein engineering; and new antitumor drugs.
Lecture occurs 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM on Mondays and Wednesdays in WI-7TH.
This class counts for a total of 12 credits.

9.12 Experimental Molecular Neurobiology
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 clonging, 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. Enrollment limited.
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
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 be offered this semester (Fall 2017). It is 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.
