How Does Biology Work? The Physical and Chemical Underpinnings of Biological Nanomachines
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. Recommended prerequisite: Chemistry 301 or 311 or consent of instructor.
