Molecular Biophysics (MolBio | INU7013U)

Description: The course will provide the students with insights in the physical concepts of some of the most fascinating processes that have been discovered in the last decades: those underpinning the molecular machinery of the biological cell. These concepts will be introduced and illustrated by a wide range of phenomena and processes in the cell, including biomolecular structure, DNA packing in the genome, molecular motors and neural signalling.

The aim of the course is therefore to provide students with:

- Knowledge and understanding of physical concepts that are relevant for understanding biology at the micro- to nano-scale.

- Knowledge and understanding of how these concepts are applied to describe various processes in the biological cell. This module is taught at UCL.
