BIOP 8201: Cell Physiology and Biophysics
Credits: 2
This course will introduce students to some of the physical and chemical underpinnings of molecular biophysics. Physical principles will be discussed and related to how they govern biological systems and how they enable important biophysical techniques. Topics: Equilibrium thermodynamics: mean behavior of ensembles at equilibrium, and Biological fluctuations: deviations from the mean Prerequisite: BIMS 6000
BIOP 8301: Molecular Biophysics
Credits: 2
This course will introduce students to some of the physical and chemical underpinnings of molecular biophysics. Physical principles will be discussed and related to how they govern biological systems and how they enable important biophysical techniques. Topics: Molecules out of equilibrium: kinetic processes, enzymology, and non-equilibrium statistical mechanics, and Statistical physics of heterogeneity Prerequisites: BIOP 8201, Biophysical Principles I
BIMS 8993: Non-topical Research: Visiting Research Graduate Traineeship Program
Credits: 1–12
This course is for visiting research students participating in the BIMS Visiting Research Graduate Trianeeship Program (VRGTP). Students in this course are dual enrolled in their home institution and will participate in research for a minimum of 4 semesters. The research will assist them in completing their degree at their home institution. Non-degree students.
