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.

7.61 Eukaryotic Cell Biology: Principles and Practice

Class Info

Emphasizes methods and logic used to analyze structure and function of eukaryotic cells in diverse systems (e.g., yeast, fly, worm, mouse, human; development, stem cells, neurons). Combines lectures and in-depth roundtable discussions of literature readings with the active participation of faculty experts. Focuses on membranes (structure, function, traffic), organelles, the cell surface, signal transduction, cytoskeleton, cell motility and extracellular matrix. Ranges from basic studies to applications to human disease, while stressing critical analysis of experimental approaches. Enrollment limited.

This class has no prerequisites.

7.61 will be offered this semester (Fall 2017). It is instructed by M. Krieger.

Lecture occurs 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM on Mondays and Wednesdays in E25-117.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.

20.440 Analysis of Biological Networks

Class Info

Conceptual and experimental approaches to analyzing complex biological networks and systems, from molecules to human populations, focusing on human pathophysiology and disease. Moving from single component analysis to pathways and networks, combines didactic lectures with in-depth analysis of current literature. Emphasizes the chemistry and biochemistry of underlying biological processes. Topics include linking genes/SNPs to disease, defining pathways, analysis of pathways in vivo, systems-level analysis, and applications of network biology. First half of term focuses on fundamental biological processes and tools/analyses needed by biological engineers, and the second half elaborates on these fundamentals by covering complex biological processes. Students acquire skills in the fundamentals of grant preparation using an NIH format and make an oral presentation.

This class has no prerequisites.

20.440 will not be offered this semester. It will be available in the Spring semester, and will be instructed by P. Blainey and M. Yaffe.

Lecture occurs 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM on Mondays and Wednesdays in 56-614.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
