Biology Video Lectures

 

 

 

The MIT Biology Department core courses, 7.012, 7.013, and 7.014, all cover the same core material, which includes the fundamental principles of biochemistry, genetics, molecular biology, and cell biology. Biological function at the molecular level is particularly emphasized and covers the structure and regulation of genes, as well as, the structure and synthesis of proteins, how these molecules are integrated into cells, and how these cells are integrated into multicellular systems and organisms. In addition, each version of the subject has its own distinctive material.

 

Introduction to Biology (7.012, Fall 2004)

 

7.012 focuses on the exploration of current research in cell biology, immunology, neurobiology, genomics, and molecular medicine.

Introductory Biology (7.013, Spring 2006)

 

7.013 focuses on the application of the fundamental principles toward an understanding of human biology. Topics include genetics, cell biology, molecular biology, disease (infectious agents, inherited diseases and cancer), developmental biology, neurobiology and evolution.

Introductory Biology (7.014, Spring 2005)

 

7.014 focuses on the application of these fundamental principles, toward an understanding of microorganisms as geochemical agents responsible for the evolution and renewal of the biosphere and of their role in human health and disease.

Introduction to Bioengineering (BE.010J) (7.38J, Spring 2006)

 

Bioengineering at MIT is represented by the diverse curricula offered by most Departments in the School of Engineering. This course samples the wide variety of bioengineering options for students who plan to major in one of the undergraduate Engineering degree programs.

  • Videos section of this course features a selection of video lectures and interviews of bioengineering faculty from various School of Engineering Departments at MIT.

Do-It-Yourself Biology - MIT World Video Lecture Series

Inspired by the vast potential of bioengineering, ordinary people are seeking their inner Frankenstein -- doctor, not monster. Two speakers who know their way around Petri dish and beaker discuss the possibilities and pitfalls of do-it-yourself biology with an MIT Museum crowd. Showing ads from a 1980 Omni magazine, Natalie Kuldell reflects on the vast changes in computer engineering in the past few decades. Jan 14, 2009.

Computational and Systems Biology at MIT - MIT World Video Lecture Series

Once the young field of systems biology really picks up steam, there will be reams of difficult new data to sort through, warns Peter Sorger. As scientists move away from the heavily structured information of gene-protein sequencing to analyzing the dizzyingly complex links among ...Jan 9, 2004.

The Implications of Synthetic Biology - MIT World Video Lecture Series

There’s no mistaking Drew Endy’s profession: “I like to make things -- that’s what I do.” From his engineer’s perspective, the slow and painful methods of bioengineering demand a solution. Endy hopes to refine the tools necessary to move the field forward. “We’re going from looking at the living world as only coming from nature, to a subset of the living world being produced by engineers who design and build hopefully useful living artifacts according to our specifications,” says Endy.

Paradigm Shifts: From Biology to Technology to Medical Applications - MIT World Video Lecture Series

After years of working out the genetic and molecular machinery of cancer, scientists are gaining significant ground on the disease, and are on the verge of a new generation of diagnostic and therapeutic approaches. Three researchers who have spearheaded this biomedical revolution describe how increasingly fast and cost-effective technology has helped make sense of ever-growing data on different cancers, offering ‘big picture’ views that may lead not merely to more effective treatments, but to an entirely new kind of medical care.

An Introductory Science Curriculum for 21st Century Biologists - MIT World Video Lecture Series

How will biology move beyond the Human Genome Project and the task of reducing living things to their genetic sequences? According to David Botstein, the answer lies in “educating the biologist of the 21st century”

Biological Large Scale Integration

Though Stephen Quake’s research is confined to the smallest of scales, his achievements have already made a large impact on the study of biology. Quake’s area of microfluidics involves fabricating tiny devices akin to those a plumber uses, but useful on the molecular level.
