The MIT Biology Department core courses, 7.012, 7.013, and 7.014, all cover the same core material, which includes the fundamental principles of biochemistry, genetics, molecular biology, and cell biology. Biological function at the molecular level is particularly emphasized and covers the structure and regulation of genes, as well as, the structure and synthesis of proteins, how these molecules are integrated into cells, and how these cells are integrated into multicellular systems and organisms. In addition, each version of the subject has its own distinctive material.
7.012 focuses on the exploration of current research in cell biology, immunology, neurobiology, genomics, and molecular medicine.

great review and update

I have watched the first 12 lecture and really liking this course! I took some organic chemistry and one course in genetics in 1972. Because of this I can follow the course and learn a lot. There is a problem with the first lectures because you cannot see the slides he is projecting and discussing. It is still possible to follow the gist. The genetics lectures are very clear and wonderful. I only wish I could listen to the audio on my ipod nano, but it will not play without the video.

Love this course!

Very clear and concise teachers and very easy to follow. As stated before, some of the projector slides aren't visible, but still easy enough to understand the concept.

Great teacher!

I turned to this the night before my biology test in the hope for a quick review because I hate reading textbooks, and he is a really great teacher. The ideas and information are very clear and concise and are presented in a way that makes sense and really ties everything together. Whether you're looking for a supplement or review or just more information (but not too in-depth) this is definitely something you'll want to look at.
