BIO 226. Introduction to Biophysics. 3-4 Units.

Core course appropriate for advanced undergraduate students and graduate students with prior knowledge of calculus and a college physics course. Introduction to how physical principles offer insights into modern biology, with regard to the structural, dynamical, and functional organization of biological systems. Topics include the roles of free energy, diffusion, electromotive forces, non-equilibrium dynamics, and information in fundamental biological processes.

BIOS 226. Introduction to Force Spectroscopy. 1 Unit.

Mini-course. Covers the fundamentals of major single-molecule manipulation methods (optical tweezers, magnetic tweezers, and atomic force microscopy), principles of force measurement signal and noise, and applications to studies of folding, binding, measurement signal and noise, and applications to studies of folding, binding, polymer elasticity, and structural transitions in proteins and nucleic acids. Intended for students with no previous exposure to single-molecule manipulation or for beginning practitioners. Lectures and discussion of current literature.
