BIOE 313: Neuromorphics: Brains in Silicon (EE 304)

Neuromorphic systems run perceptual, cognitive and motor tasks in real-time on a network of highly interconnected nonlinear units. To maximize density and minimize energy, these units--like the brain's neurons--are heterogeneous and stochastic. The first half of the course covers learning algorithms that automatically synthesize network configurations to perform a desired computation on a given heterogeneous neural substrate. The second half of the course surveys system-on-a-chip architectures that efficiently realize highly interconnected networks and mixed analog-digital circuit designs that implement area and energy-efficient nonlinear units. Prerequisites: EE102A and EE108 are required; EE114 is recommended.
Terms: Spr | Units: 3 | Grading: Letter (ABCD/NP)

BIOE 326A: In Vivo MR: SpinPhysics and Spectroscopy (RAD 226A)

Collections of independent identical nuclear spins are well described by the classical vector model of magnetic resonance imaging, however, interaction among spins, as occur in many in vivo processes, require a more complete description. This course develops the basic physics and engineering principles of these interactions with emphasis on current research questions and clinical spectroscopy applications. Prerequisite: EE396b; familiarity with MRI, linear algebra recommended.
Terms: Win | Units: 3 | Repeatable for credit | Grading: Medical Option (Med-Ltr-CR/NC)
Instructors: Spielman, D. (PI)

BIOE 326B: In Vivo MR: Relaxation Theory and Contrast Mechanisms (RAD 226B)

Principles of nuclear magnetic resonance relaxation theory as applicable to in vivo processes with an emphasis on medical imaging. Topics: physics and mathematics of relaxation, relaxation times in normal and diseased tissues, magnetization transfer contrast, chemical exchange saturation transfer, MRI contrast agents, and hyperpolarized 13C. Prerequisites: BIOE 22A
Terms: Spr | Units: 3 | Grading: Medical Option (Med-Ltr-CR/NC)
Instructors: Spielman, D. (PI)

BIOE 331: Protein Engineering (BIOE 231)

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
Terms: not given this year | Units: 3 | Grading: Letter (ABCD/NP)

BIOE 333: Interfacial Phenomena and Bionanotechnology

Control over and understanding of interfacial phenomena and colloidal science are the essential foundation of bionanotechnology. Key mathematical relationships derived by Laplace, Gibbs, Kelvin and Young are derived and explained, along with the thermodynamics of systems of large interfacial area. Forces controlling surface and interfacial phenomena and surfactant and biomacromolecule self-assembly are discussed. Protein folding/unfolding and aggregation, and nano- and microfluidics are elucidated in these terms. Students will gain insight into the interplay between physical and chemical properties of biomolecules. Spring, (Barron, A.)
