CHEM 367
Biophysical Chemistry Spring 2024
Division III

Class Details

In this course, physical chemistry concepts are presented from the viewpoint of their practical application to a set of biochemical problems, which are explored side-by-side in the lecture and highly-integrated lab program. Major emphasis is placed on quantitative thermodynamic models of equilibrium processes, and students will learn how to develop and apply mathematical models to data. The main topics covered include: 1) conformations of biological macromolecules and the forces that stabilize them; 2) spectroscopic techniques for the study of structure and function; and 3) macromolecular interactions and binding.
