03-205: Electronics for Biological Applications

This mini will cover basic concepts in electronics. The format for the course will be a weekly lecture and a hands-on laboratory project. We will introduce key concepts behind the electronic circuitry and instrumentation commonly found in a modern biology laboratory. The course will cover discrete electrical components, simple circuits, transistors, op-amps, digital electronics, bread-boarding, and the use of common analytical instruments. We will also show how concepts in electronics provide a valuable conceptual framework for understanding biological phenomena.

Fall: Mini Session – 4 units
Prerequisites: Mathematics 21-120 and 21-122 and Physics 1 (33-111)
