BME 2110 - Biomolecular Thermodynamics


     


Spring. 3 credits. Letter grades only.

Prerequisite: BIOMG 1350  (preferred) or BIOG 1440 CHEM 2090 MATH 2930 , BME 2000 /ENGRD 2202  or equivalent. Enrollment preference given to: BME majors. 

S. Jiang.

This course serves as an introduction to thermodynamics and physical chemistry focused on the application to biomolecular systems. Topics include the role of entropy and free energy in determining biological reactions and processes such as enzymatic reactions or molecular interactions, protein folding/unfolding, single molecule mechanics, energy states, and equilibrium distribution of biomolecular and other systems.

This course serves as the foundation for the Molecular, Cellular, and Systems Engineering (MCSE) concentration as well as the molecular principles of biomedical engineering course.
