Physical Principles in Biology
Principles from physics and chemistry are explored in the context of biological processes, especially at the molecular and cellular level. Topics covered include random walks, thermodynamics, molecular recognition, dynamic processes, optics and spectroscopy. Quantitative treatments are emphasized and computer simulation and applications are used extensively.
Biol 3515/Chem 3515
Biologica Chemistry Laboratory
Laboratory course in protein biochemistry and enzymology. Topics covered include spectrophotometry, enzyme kinetics, electrophoresis and chromatography. In addition to one 4-hour laboratory sessions and one lecture per week, the course requires substantial out-of-class work involving computer-based data analysis and molecular modeling. Students need to take CHEM/BIOL 3510 prior to taking, or simultaneously with, this course.
