BIOE 598 PS - Special Topics - Quantitative Biotechnology
Subject offerings of new and developing areas of knowledge in bioengineering intended to augment the existing curriculum. See Class Schedule or departmental course information for topics and prerequisites. Course Information: 1 to 4 graduate hours. No professional credit. May be repeated in the same or separate terms if topics vary.
Offers first year graduate students in Bioengineering an opportunity to be exposed to the modern biotechnologies which sparked a Renaissance in current biology and biomedicine. For each weekly topic, we will do an in-depth review of various methods including the conventional/traditional protocols and the newly developed techniques. The scientific articles to be reviewed in class emphasize high precision, high spatial/temporal resolution, high-throughput, molecular accuracy, sensitivity and real-time imaging. Two students will be paired up to present each week's article and lead the discussion. The course consists of studies on the Central Dogma of Biology (DNA, RNA, and Protein) as well as cellular organelles and cell imaging.
