Subject: Biophysics
Course Number: 204A
Course Title: Macromolecular Structure and Interactions
Units: 4
School: Graduate Division
Department: Biophysics Program

Course Description: In this course, we will pursue a qualitative & quantitative understanding of the physical basis of macromolecular function. We will examine: the nature & quantification of the forces that drive macromolecular interactions, both intramolecular (macromolecular folding), & with other proteins and ligands; diffusion & active transport of macromolecules; the structural underpinnings of the kinetics & thermodynamics of macromolecular reactions; & the physical basis of important biophysical methods.
