BIOS 200 Foundations in Experimental Biology
This course is divided into three 3-week cycles and is focused on the broad themes of Evolution, Energy and Information. During each cycle, students work in small teams and will be coached by faculty to develop an original research project and compose a brief written proposal explaining the research. Skills emphasized include: 1) reading for breadth and depth; 2) developing compelling, creative ar.... More Description for BIOS 200

BIOS 206 Stem Cells and Regeneration: Transitioning from Basic Research to Clinical Therapies
Presents emerging therapies based on stem cell by the scientists leading these pioneering efforts, including academic and industry-based groups. Provides hands-on instruction in laboratory methods valuable in development of stem cell therapies.
BIOS 207 Interdisciplinary Approaches to Biochemistry: Single Molecule Biophysics to Clinical Outcomes
Interdisciplinary analysis from basic biochemistry and biophysics to clinical outcomes of disease states and potential therapeutic interventions. Focus on cardiac system. Single molecule biophysics and classical enzyme kinetics and use of induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells and single cell studies lay foundation for discussions of effects of cardiomyopathy mutations on heart function. Analytic.... More Description for BIOS 207
BIOS 208 Computational Macromolecule Structure Modeling
Concepts, workflow, and methodology of protein structure modeling presented through short lectures followed by hands-on exercises with the Rosetta software package. Several problem types demonstrate how to formulate and test well-defined hypotheses, in addition to the design and engineering of structure, function, and interactions.
BIOS 209 Practical Protein NMR Structure Determination
Work toward solving a high-resolution 3D structure from unprocessed NMR data acquired on a small well-characterized protein. Short lectures followed by hands-on computer exercises demonstrate best practices for data processing, spectra interpretation, and structure calculation with attention to troubleshooting and validation methods. Students should be familiar with fundamental concepts of prote.... More Description for BIOS 209
