BIOE 231 Protein Engineering (BIOE 331)
The design and engineering of biomolecules emphasizing proteins, antibodies, and enzymes. Combinatorial and rational methodologies, protein structure and function, and biophysical analyses of modified biomolecules. Clinically relevant examples from the literature and biotech industry. Prerequisite: basic biochemistry. Winter, Cochran
BIOE 236 Biophysical Mechanisms of Innate Immunity
The innate immune system provides our first line of defense against infections of all kinds as well as cancer. Innate immune effectors, e.g. host defense peptides are deployed by numerous cell types (neutrophils, macrophages, NK cells, as well as epithelial cells, keratinocytes, and others) and attack by biophysical mechanisms of action. Disorders of innate immunity are increasingly being implicat.... More Description for BIOE 236
BIOE 238 Principles and Tools for Metrology in Biology
A practical introduction to the science of measurement. Emphasis is on the tools used to parse a biological measurement problem. Students will learn to identify and quantitatively address the critical sources of variability and bias using the core concepts of uncertainty, traceability, and validation. Case studies will illustrate use of metrology in current and emergent bioscience and engineering .... More Description for BIOE 238

BIOE 242 LAW, TECHNOLOGY, AND LIBERTY (ENGR 243)
New technologies from gene editing to networked computing have already transformed our economic and social structures and are increasingly changing what it means to be human. What role has law played in regulating and shaping these technologies? And what role can and should it play in the future? This seminar will consider these and related questions, focusing on new forms of networked production,.... More Description for BIOE 242
BIOE 244 Advanced Frameworks and Approaches for Engineering Integrated Genetic Systems
Concepts and techniques for the design and implementation of engineered genetic systems. Topics covered include the quantitative exploration of tools that support (a) molecular component engineering, (b) abstraction and composition of functional genetic devices, (c) use of control and dynamical systems theory in device and systems design, (d) treatment of molecular "noise", (e) integrat....
