Fall 2006 not offered
|Certificates: Molecular Biophysics|
This is a half-semester course. It will start the second half of the semster on Monday, March 23, 1998. Students have five days after the first day of class to add this course. This course focuses on the thermodynamics of binding proteins, drugs and other ligands to nucleic acids. Topics include cooperativity in binding of proteins to DNA, statistical thermodynamics of molecular switches in gene regulation, energetic linkages in binding of ligands to nucleic acids. The relationships between thermodynamics of protein-nucleic acid interactions and molecular mechanisms of gene expression are emphasized.
