20.109 Laboratory Fundamentals in Biological Engineering (MIT)
This course introduces experimental biochemical and molecular techniques from a quantitative engineering perspective. Rigorous quantitative data collection, statistical analysis, and conceptual understanding of instrumentation design and application form the underpinnings of this course. The four discovery based modules include DNA Engineering, Protein Engineering, Systems Engineering, and Biomaterials Engineering. Additional information is available on the course Wiki (hosted on OpenWetWare.) T
6.253 Convex Analysis and Optimization (MIT)
6.253 develops the core analytical issues of continuous optimization, duality, and saddle point theory, using a handful of unifying principles that can be easily visualized and readily understood. The mathematical theory of convex sets and functions is discussed in detail, and is the basis for an intuitive, highly visual, geometrical approach to the subject.

Blood Glucose Monitoring
This pharmacological resource demonstrates the procedure in quatitative measuring of glucose level in the blood. The OneTouch Horizpon Test Strip with the OneTouch Horizon Blood Glusose meter will be used for this purpose. These test strips are for in vtiro diagnostic use, that is, testing outside the body. The video demonstration covers the procedure form preparation to observing for results with accompanying audio to explain each step.
Haematology - The Red Blood Cell Count
This programme demonstrates in a video lesson the procedure in determining whether there is adequate number of red blood cell in circulation. The procedure covers the description of the laboratory instruments and materials that are used in such tests. At the end of the procedure, an observation of the test result is made and interpreted with the use of a microscope.
