Wolverine Access Subject listing for BIOPHYS

Winter Academic Term '02 Time Schedule for Biophysics.


BIOPHYS 521 / CHEM 521. Biophysical Chemistry II.

Section 001.

Instructor(s): Erik R P Zuiderweg (zuiderwe@umich.edu)

Prerequisites: Chem. 461, Biol. Chem. 415, and Chem. 430 or equivalent; and permission of course director. (3).

Credits: (3).

Course Homepage: No homepage submitted.

This course is the second of a two term biophysical chemistry series, Biophysics 520/521. The course can be taken without taking Biophysics 520. Biophysics 521 gives an overview of the spectroscopical techniques UV/Vis, IR, Raman, CD Mossbauer, Exafs, EPR and ESEEM. Structure determination by X-ray diffraction and two-dimensional will be treated in fair detail. Stopped-flow kinetics techniques are introduced. Electron, light and scanning microscopies and optical tweezers will be introduced. Ultracentrifugation, plasmon, resonance, mass spectrometry and calorimetry will be discussed. Lab techniques such as chromatography, electrophoresis, protein expression and site-directed mutagenesis will be introduced.

BIOPHYS 642 / MICRBIOL 642. Molecular and Cellular Immunology III.

Section 001 Molecular Recognition in the Immune System.

Instructor(s): Malini Raghavan (malinir@umich.edu)

Prerequisites: Biol. 305 and Biol. Chem. 415 and Biol. 436/Micro. 502; Graduate standing. (1).

Credits: (1).

Course Homepage: No homepage submitted.

This one-credit course will consist of lectures and discussions pertaining to receptor-ligand interactions in the immune system. The goal of the course is to provide students a broad overview of the structural basis of immune function by reviewing recent literature. Recommended Reading: Literature-based. Prerequisites: Biology 305 and Biol. Chem. 415; permission of instructor for undergraduates or NCFD. This course is an appropriate sequel to Microbiology 502/ Biology 436 and Biochem 570. Lectures.

Check Times, Location, and Availability Cost: No Data Given. Waitlist Code: 5, permission of instructor for undergraduates

BIOPHYS 801. Seminar by Molecular Biophysics Trainees.

Section 001 Molecular Biophysics.

Instructor(s): Martha L Ludwig (mludwig@umich.edu)

Prerequisites: Graduate standing. (1).

Credits: (1).

Course Homepage: No homepage submitted.

Students in Molecular Biophysics fulfill the requirements for a Ph.D. in either Biological Chemistry, Biophysics, Chemistry, or Physics. Training in Molecular Biophysics aims to develop independent investigators who will contribute in significant ways to advances in understanding structural and cellular biology at the molecular level. Students concentrating in Molecular Biophysics elect courses in areas such as protein structure and function, techniques in NMR and crystallography, and spectroscopic methods.
