PHYS 320: Biophysics

3 credit hours

Prerequisites: PHYS 212, CHEM 238
Improves and develops understanding of physics concepts, and applies them to molecular and cellular biological systems. Concepts and principles from thermodynamics, statistical mechanics, and electricity will be applied to systems such as bacteria, cell membranes, vascular networks, and biological molecules (RNA, DNA, and proteins including enzymes). For biology and biochemistry students who seek to learn more about the application of physics concepts and principles in biological systems, as well as for physics students interested in thinking more about cells and biological molecules.
