7.013 is one of three Introductory Biology classes.
Please see the 7.01x page for more information.

Course Description

Academic year 2006-07: Spring 2007


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.

7.013 focuses on the application of the fundamental principles toward an understanding of human biology. Topics include genetics, cell biology, molecular biology, disease (infectious agents, inherited diseases and cancer), developmental biology, neurobiology and evolution.

These are proposed readings. The assigned pages per lecture closely follow the lectures but are not the exact replicas of the lectures. All readings are from the required course textbook:
