CHEM 402 - Biophysics

(same as BCHM402) (3 credits)
This course addresses the basic principles of chemical biophysics: thermodynamics, kinetics, and transport mechanisms. It also includes the application of these principles to the understanding of specific processes, such as the diffusion/transport of chemicals through membranes or the assembly of supramolecular structures, that explain many of the physical actions that result in biological structures and functionalities. Three lecture periods. Prerequisite(s): BIOL 111 CHEM 222 , and CHEM 321 As needed.
