Objectives
This is a continuation of the series of the convergence of development and aging courses. We will review the latest trend in the fields of biological research on the development and aging processes of model organisms. The topics include early embryonic development, late organogenesis in the Xenopus, and metabolism and aging processes in C. elegans, and the implications of these studies in human. This course expands an in-depth analysis of the current literature in developmental biology and molecular genetics of aging.

Objectives
• In this course, students will learn how to perform research to support their projects which were defined and specified in ITCE500 Introduction to IT Convergence Engineering.

• The project will culminate in a submission of a conference or journal paper submission.
The course will provide a set of 4 soft skills lecture on scientific databases, scientific publishing, project management

This is an advanced graduate course. The course will touch on a variety of areas including system security, network protocols, distributed systems, databases, cryptography, etc., without being able to teach them. Rather than requiring all these topics as prerequisites, I expect a sufficient level of maturity that you will be able to read papers or material in these areas. If necessary, you should be prepared to go out and learn more about background topics even if you have not taken a formal course in those topics. The course will probably be conducted different from most courses you have taken. Rather than being lecture-style, it will be discussion-oriented, presentation-oriented with everyone doing some research on course-related topics


Course Schedule
• The students will meet with the professor in charge every week to present the progress of their project• Lecturing time will be used for working at the project due
- on the first week of December 2013: in the form of a 10 page conference paper
- on the second week of December 2013: in the form of a group presentation

Objectives
Hypoxia is potentially dangerous environmental condition that all the aerobic organisms must deal with. This course will review the latest trend in the biology and pathophysiology of hypoxia. The topics include mechanisms by which HIF (hypoxia inducible factor) is regulated in vivo, functions of HIF and VHL (von Hippel-Lindau) in inflammatory diseases including cancer and cardiovascular diseases, and roles of mitochondria and reactive oxygen species in hypoxic response and aging. This course expands an in-depth coverage of the current literature in the biology of hypoxia and its implication in human diseases.

Objectives
Recently, as the feature size of semiconductor technology keeps on decreasing, the speed performance and the power consumption are being enhanced in the digital circuits. However, the performance of analog circuits suffer in the state-of-the aart semiconductor technology because of the reduced supply voltage. Digital circuits are widely to enhance the performance of analog circuits with a relatively simple circuit. In this regard, this class introduces an oversampling analog circuits using DELTA-SIGMA modulator to extract the high-performance from a simple analog circuit in the state-of-the art technology.

Prerequisite and Compulsory
EECE569 Analog Integrated Circuits

Grading
Homework & Presentation(95%), Attendance(5%)
Around one homework each chapter, student present HW.
Homework mostly consists of design and simulation works
