To succeed in this course you will need to be familiar with the fundamental concepts of atoms, chemical compounds, and chemical bonds. Course Goals After completing the four units of this course, you should be able to: Identify the general structure and function of carbohydrates, phospholipds, proteins, enzymes and nucleic acids.
Outline the general processes used by the cell to generate cellular energy from sugar and to generate the energy and reducing agent needed for the Calvin cycle. Describe the structure and regulation of genes, and the structure and synthesis of proteins.
Understand the inheritance of two or more traits based upon Mendelian genetics. Apply this knowledge to drawing and decoding human pedigrees. Understand the inheritance of traits when the genes involved are linked.
Predict the results of genetic crosses involving two or more traits when the genes involved are linked or unlinked. Understand the general tools and reagents used in recombinant DNA technologies.
Design a general strategy for identifying a gene of interest using recombinant DNA techniques. Format Fundamentals of Biology was designed specifically for independent study.
It draws upon material developed for the three versions of MIT's Introductory Biology classes known as 7. All three classes cover the same core material, which includes the fundamental principles of biochemistry, genetics, molecular biology, and cell biology.
In addition, each version of the subject has its own distinctive material. Biochemistry Genetics Recombinant DNA Each unit has been further divided into a sequence of sessions that cover an amount you might expect to complete in one sitting.
