HST.523J Cell-Matrix Mechanics (MIT)
Mechanical forces play a decisive role during development of tissues and organs, during remodeling following injury as well as in normal function. A stress field influences cell function primarily through deformation of the extracellular matrix to which cells are attached. Deformed cells express different biosynthetic activity relative to undeformed cells. The unit cell process paradigm combined with topics in connective tissue mechanics form the basis for discussions of several topics from cell
10.445 Separation Processes for Biochemical Products (MIT)
This course serves as an introduction to the fundamental principles of separation operations for the recovery of products from biological processes, membrane filtration, chromatography, centrifugation, cell disruption, extraction, and process design. This course was last taught during the regular school year in the Spring semester of 1999, but has been a part of the MIT Technology and Development Program (TDP) at the Malaysia University of Science and Technology (MUST), as well as at MIT's Prof
20.320 Biomolecular Kinetics and Cell Dynamics (MIT)
This class covers analysis of kinetics and dynamics of molecular and cellular processes across a hierarchy of scales, including intracellular, extracellular, and cell population levels; a spectrum of biotechnology applications are also taken into consideration. Topics include gene regulation networks; nucleic acid hybridization; signal transduction pathways; and cell populations in tissues and bioreactors. Emphasis is placed on experimental methods, quantitative analysis, and computational model
7.60 Cell Biology: Structure and Functions of the Nucleus (MIT)
This course covers the fundamentals of nuclear cell biology as well as the methodological and experimental approaches upon which they are based. Topics include Eukaryotic genome structure, function, and expression, processing of RNA, and regulation of the cell cycle. The techniques and logic used to address important problems in nuclear cell biology is emphasized. Lectures cover broad topic areas in nuclear cell biology and class discussions focus on representative papers recently published in t
7.340 Avoiding Genomic Instability: DNA Replication, the Cell Cycle, and Cancer (MIT)
In this class we will learn about how the process of DNA replication is regulated throughout the cell cycle and what happens when DNA replication goes awry. How does the cell know when and where to begin replicating its DNA? How does a cell prevent its DNA from being replicated more than once? How does damaged DNA cause the cell to arrest DNA replication until that damage has been repaired? And how is the duplication of the genome coordinated with other essential processes? We will examine both
7.343 Neuron-glial Cell Interactions in Biology and Disease (MIT)
The main goal of this seminar will be to study the nervous system from the perspective of neuron-glia interactions. In each class, we will focus on one type of glial cell and discuss its origin, classification and function within the nervous system. Current findings concerning diseases associated with each type of glial cell will be discussed. This course is one of many Advanced Undergraduate Seminars offered by the Biology Department at MIT. These seminars are tailored for students with an inte
7.06 Cell Biology (MIT)
This course deals with the biology of cells of higher organisms: The structure, function, and biosynthesis of cellular membranes and organelles; cell growth and oncogenic transformation; transport, receptors, and cell signaling; the cytoskeleton, the extracellular matrix, and cell movements; chromatin structure and RNA synthesis.
9.013J Cell and Molecular Neurobiology (MIT)
This course explores the major areas of cellular and molecular neurobiology, including excitable cells and membranes, ion channels and receptors, synaptic transmission, cell-type determination, axon guidance, neuronal cell biology, neurotrophin signaling and cell survival, synapse formation and neural plasticity. Material includes lectures and exams, and involves presentation and discussion of primary literature. It focuses on major concepts and recent advances in experimental neuroscience.

How Cell Phone Recycling Works
How Cell Phone Recycling Works is a short video that explains the importance of recycling cell phones and goes into some details into what they contain. A good video to show students when studying the environment as they are usually not aware of the dangers.
Cell Phone Facts : How Do Cell Phones Work?
Beware of the ad at the beginning. Very political. Cell phones work by transmitting a signal to a tower, which in turn sends signals to either land lines to other towers. Find out why cell phones have trouble and how they work. World's worst artist does not help.
Wall of Separation (The Establishment Clause)
This excellent video is accompanied by text and is suitable for high school students. "Freedom of religion has been an important issue throughout American history. Many of the first colonists established homes in America to escape religious persecution and oppression in England. The freedom to believe and practice religion in whatever way they chose to was of vital importance to early Americans."
Parts of a Plant Cell
This short video explains each of the organelles inside a plant cell and especially addresses the organelles that differ from an animal cell. The video also briefly explains photosynthesis while discussing the chloroplasts in a plant cell. Run time 02:56
Plant Cell Motility and Laser Microsurgery of Cytoplasmic Strands
Plant cells are shaped by rigid cell walls. Osmotic forces press the plasma membrane tightly against these walls. The walls can be removed with enzymes. The remaining structures, the protoplasts, are now bordered by the plasma membrane. Since the shaping force of the wall is missing, isolated plant protoplasts are usually perfectly spherical in shape as a result of non-directional osmotic forces. Run time 04:19
Plant Development: Cell Structure and Function
Professor George Wolfe discusses cell structure and function in this video from Thinkwell's online Biology series. This video uses lecture format and a whiteboard to aid in explanations. Run time 11:07.
Nonvascular Plants - Bryophyta
Video briefly explains the bryophyta division of non-vascular plants. It addresses the reproductive structures and life cycles. The segment is from the program Kingdom Plantae: Builders of Biomes. Run time 03:21.
