Course Descriptions


BIOP 4100 Foundations in Biophysics (3 qtr. hrs.)
Focus of the course is on application of basic physics principles to the study of cells and macromolecules. Topics include diffusion, random processes, thermodynamics, reaction equilibria and kinetics, computer modeling. Must be admitted to the MCB PhD program or related graduate program with instructor approval.

BIOP 4210 Current Topics in Biophysics (2 qtr. hrs.)
This is a seminar course that focuses on current primary literature in the fields of molecular and cellular biophysics. This is the first of a three course, year-long sequence.
