Mathematical Modeling in Biochemistry
CHEM 315
Spring 2010
Section: 01  

Mathematics is a powerful tool to understand modern problems in biology and biochemistry. In this course you will learn how to use mathematical methods to model fundamental biochemical processes such as hydrogen-ion equilibria in proteins, enzyme kinetics, cooperative binding of ligands to proteins, pH-response of an enzyme, regulation and control in metabolic pathways, membrane transport, and macromolecular structure. This course aims at developing your problem-solving skills in life sciences. Independent study and exploration are greatly encouraged.
