AEP 5520 - Physics of Life

Spring. 3 credits.

Co-meets with AEP 2520 /ENGRD 2520 .


Introduces the physics of biological macromolecules (e.g., proteins, DNA, RNA) to students of the physical sciences or engineering who have little or no background in biology. The macromolecules are studied from three perspectives. First, the biological role or function of each class of macromolecules is considered. Second, a quantitative description of the physical interactions that determine the behavior of these systems is provided. Finally, techniques that are commonly used to probe these systems, with an emphasis on current research are discussed. Additional requirements for AEP M.Eng. students: Research current topic provided by the instructor and give an oral presentation in class.
