How Does Biology Work? The Physical and Chemical Underpinnings of Biological Nanomachines

CHEM 302

An introduction to biophysical chemistry and molecular biophysics. Explores principles that underpin biological structure and function through such topics as: how the structure and function of biomolecules can be studied at the level of single molecules; how biomolecular machines capture energy and do work; how biomolecules function within networks to convey signals, act cooperatively, and form patterns. Requires one year of introductory chemistry, physics, and calculus, and familiarity with some of the molecular foundations of biology. Instructor: Beratan.
