PHY-597B: Topics in Biophysics
This course, intended for students with a background in physical, chemical, or quantitative life science, will cover physical principles that apply to biological molecules and cells: Bownian motion, low Reynolds-number environments, forces relevant to cells and molecules, chemical potentials and free energies, as well as the basics of polymer physics. These principles will be applied to enzymes as molecular machines, membranes, DNA, and RNA.
