Course - Introduction to Biology with Research Focus
Course Level: Senior
The MIT Biology Department core courses 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, this course focuses on the exploration of current research in cell biology, immunology, neurobiology, genomics, and molecular medicine.
