课程概况

本课是一门由人类基因工程负责人之一的Eric Lander教授主讲的入门级生物学课程。课程涵盖了MIT生物导论课以及全球许多其他生物课程中的主题。首先将介绍DNA、RNA和蛋白质等大分子的结构和功能,你会发现这些大分子的结构上的变化是如何改变它们的功能以及这些变化对人类健康的意义。随后,你将会学习运用对细胞之间信息流及遗传的知识来理解人类健康和疾病,并解到分子生物技术以及这些技术对我们这个时刻变化的世界的潜在影响。完成本课后,你将拥有足够的生物学基础来理解那些当今正在发生的卓越的医学革命。

同学们将在12周中学完本课。每周会有一系列的互动视频课件并穿插练习或提问,以及作业或测验,最后以一门综合性期末考试结课。本课将带你探索生物化学、遗传学、分子生物学、重组DNA技术和基因组学及药理学的秘密。期待与你一起共度探索生命之旅。

Read fully to understand the verified-certificate option. Join Professor Eric Lander and the MITx Biology team in a newly restructured introductory biology learning experience. All original 7.00x course materials are available here for exploration and completion, including video and interactive problem sets and exams. We strongly encourage you to work through the activities, towards a goal of learning biology. In this version of the course, we have kept the course content the same while optimizing the course settings for learning: instant feedback after trying problems and all content available at all times. We now offer a more thorough and robust means of certifying edX learners in their mastery of the MITx introductory biology content, through a new MITx 7.00x Introduction to Biology Competency Exam. This exciting option is available ONLY to those who register for the verified-certificate track, and successful completion of this exam is the only assessment that counts toward a certificate. We highly recommend preparing for the Competency Exam certification by using the current course materials and MIT OpenCourseWare problems. The next Competency Exam will be open March 19, 2019 to March 25, 2019.

7.00x is an introductory level biology course hosted by professor Eric Lander, who was one of the leaders of the Human Genome Project. The course content reflects the topics taught in the MIT introductory biology courses and many biology courses across the world. As a learner, you will first focus on the structure and function of macromolecules such as DNA, RNA and proteins. You will discover how changes in the structure of some of these macromolecules alter their functions and what the implications of such changes have on human health. As you continue in the course, you will apply an understanding of heredity and information flow within cells to human health and disease and will learn about molecular biological techniques and their potential to impact our changing world. After you complete this course, you will have a foundation in biology that will allow you to understand the remarkable medical revolution going on today.

MITx 7.00x: Introduction to Biology – The Secret of Life will let you explore the mysteries of biochemistry, genetics, molecular biology, recombinant DNA technology and genomics, and rational medicine. We are excited to take this journey with you!
