BEGR 472 Cellular Biophysics

(with Prof. Gregory Harms & Prof. Christian Liang)

Description: This is a graduate level bioengineering course that is also available to upper level biology and physics students (cross listed as BIO/PHY 398). This course presents an overview of the important physical principles governing the behavior of cells and macromolecules. Upper level mathematics that are useful to understand these phenomena are introduced in a way that is comprehensible to biology majors lacking background beyond basic calculus. In addition to the physical models governing the most ubiquitous molecular and cellular processes, the physics behind the most common experimental techniques used in biology, bioengineering, and biophysics are covered.

3 credits (3 hours of lecture)
