High school and college biology classes were never like this! You’ll discover the fundamental principles of modern biology and how biologists study genes, proteins and human disease. Rather than memorizing phyla and species or parts of the cell, you’ll learn the secrets of life—biochemistry and genetics—from an energetic and enthusiastic MIT professor, Eric Lander, a principal contributor to the Human Genome Project. Videos from the edX course “Introduction to Biology: The Secret of Life” mix with class discussion. This course began in the fall semester (but having previously attended is not a prerequisite) and will conclude in the summer session.
