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. 7.014 focuses on the application of these fundamental principles, toward an understanding of microorganisms as geochemical agents responsible for the evolution and renewal of the biosphere and of their role in human health and disease.

I just found out this wonderful valuable lessons here. They are awesome and in great dept. Really helpful understanding molecular biology as well as cell biology. Thank you very much!
Portions of these lectures are blanked out due to “copyright concerns”.
With a large portion of the lectures blanked out due to "copy right concerns" I fail to see the point of an incomplete lecture. Somehow MIT believes they own Biology and we get a half-assed course.
