Course Descripton

Academic Year 2007-08; Fall 2007


All 7.01x classes cover the same core material, which includes the fundamental principles of biochemistry, genetics, molecular biology, and cell biology.

The core material focuses on function at a molecular level: the structure and regulation of genes, and the structure and synthesis of proteins; how these molecules are integrated into cells; and how cells are integrated into multicellular systems and organisms.

In addition, 7.012's distinctive material includes: Exploration into areas of current research in cell biology, immunology, neurobiology, human genetics, developmental biology, and evolution.




7.012 is one of three Introductory Biology classes.
See the 7.01x page for more information.
