E760: Running the Numbers: Scales in Biology in Splash Fall 2019 (Nov. 02, 2019)
This class seeks to give students intuition behind the rate at which molecular biology processes occur. We will begin by running some basic calculations, and build off of that to give a deeper insight as to how quickly biological processes happen.


E456: Intro to Bioengineering in Splash Fall 18 (Nov. 04, 2018)
Bioengineering is a multidisciplinary field. In this course, we will discuss the different aspects of bioengineering and their applications to other fields. We will also be doing activities that will be related to the different concentrations available here at UC Berkeley. No prerequisites are required. We would just like you to have an open mind and an interest in bioengineering.


S464: All About DNA: A Primer in Splash Fall 18 (Nov. 04, 2018)
In this crash course on molecular biology, students will take a fast-paced journey, learning all about DNA with a particular emphasis on how DNA structure is a direct product of its function. Starting from the macromolecule's chirality, the class will build on itself, elucidating on why DNA is the way it is, and what implications this has in the modern day.
