BIOP 8050: Advanced Methods in Molecular Biophysics: Cellular Biophysics
Credits: 2
This course will introduce students to the theory, principles, and applications of the major techniques in cellular biophysics. Lectures will include practical background on instrumentation and data interpretation. A central focus will be on fluorescent microscopy and spectroscopy techniques. This course will also explore principles and methodologies of mechanobiology (e.g. Optical Tweezers, Atomic Force Microscopy).
