BIOE 513 Bioengineering Laboratory Techniques (3)

BIOE 513 is a three-credit laboratory course for engineering graduate students designed to introduce laboratory techniques used in bioengineering/biomedical research. The course objectives are to build a basic foundation for understanding biological assays in the context of biomedical engineering applications and to introduce the student to the integration of biology with design and fabrication of devices. Consideration is also given to compatibility between biological systems and medical devices, and cellular interactions at the interface between biology and engineering. Emphasis is placed on cell and molecular biology, protein biochemistry, bacterial transformations, and mammalian cell culture with particular attention to engineering analysis and quantification. This course requires a substantial amount of laboratory work outside of designated meeting periods.
