Courses

BIOP 4100 Foundations in Biophysics (3 Credits)

Focus of the course is on application of basic physics principles to the study of cells and macromolecules. Topics include diffusion, random processes, thermodynamics, reaction equilibria and kinetics, computer modeling. Must be admitted to the MCB PhD program or related graduate program with instructor approval. Cross listed with PHYS 4100.

BIOP 4150 Cellular Biophysics (3 Credits)

Biophysical approaches to understanding cell function. We emphasize the various experimental approaches that biophysicists use to study basic cellular processes, including a variety of fluorescence images, optical and electrophysiological techniques. Cross listed with BIOL 4211.
