PY 732 - Biophysics

This course will provide a sound physical basis to biological function. The focus will be at the molecular and cellular levels and will take a detailed look at the energetics and thermodynamics of cellular processes including transport phenomena across cellular membranes. Protein and nucleic acid structure-function relationships will also be studied. Topics in this area include macromolecules in solution, protein-solvent interactions, and electrostatic and electrokinetic phenomena.
