This course introduces students to the physical and chemical properties of proteins, nucleic acids, and membranes. The emphasis in BMB 508 is on thermodynamics and structure, with several lectures devoted to the biophysical methods used to study biological macromolecules. This is intended to be a first course for graduate students with an undergraduate background in physics, chemistry, or biology.
