Courses in Biophysics (Division 329)
- Biophysics 520(510/610)/Chem. 520. Biophysical Chemistry I.
- Chem. 463, Biol. Chem. 415, or Chem 420; permission of course director. (3). (Excl). (BS).
- This course is the first of a two term biophysical chemistry series Biophysics 510/511. The course offers an overview of protein, nucleic acid, lipid and carbohydrate structures.
- Biophysics 521(511)/Chem. 521. Biophysical Chemistry II.
- Chem. 461, Biol. Chem. 415, and Chem. 430 or equivalent; and permission of course director. (3). Excl). (BS).
- This course gives background applications of several physical techniques used in biophysical research. General principles of spectroscopy are explained. Macromolecular structure determination by X\_ray diffraction and and two-dimensional NMR are treated in detail. IR, Raman, CD, EXAFS, EPR, and ESEEM are introduced.
- Biophysics 570/Biol. Chem. 570. Protein Structure.
- Introductory biochemistry (Biol. Chem. 415(1). (Excl). (BS).
- Detailed description of protein structure and function. Thorough treatment of secondary, super-, secondary, tertiary, and quarternary structure as well as motif and domain patterns. Theoretical and experimental approaches to study protein folding and stability (pathways, thermodynamics) are discussed.
- Biophysics 571/Biol. Chem. 570. Nucleotide and Polynucleotide Structure.
- Biophysics 570. (1). (Excl). (BS).
- Nucleotide, DNA and RNA structure, DNA-protein interaction and fine structure.
