Interfaces in biology and nanoscience

MICRO-391

Enseignant(s) :

Roke Sylvie

Langue:

English

Summary

A biological system is composed of water, macromolecules and interfaces. Processes inside the cell depend on biomolecular interactions that are decomposed into elementary physical and chemical interactions. Organizing, quantifying, and contextualizing these interactions are the course objectives.

Content

Introduction and numerical aspects

Driving forces in biological systems

Langmuir films; surfaces in 2D and electrical aspects

Water

Interfaces in 3D: self-assembly

Techniques to probe interfaces

State of the art

Learning Prerequisites

Important concepts to start the course

Thermodynamics, partial properties, Boltzman distribution, Chemical structural elements (pi bonds, H bonds), intergartion, differentation

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

Teaching methods

Lectures, exercises, projects

Expected student activities

Students are expected to studye the book as instructed during the course, the are encouraged to make the exercises during class and part of the course may consist of the students contributing to the exam material

Assessment methods

There will be one exam. During the semester there will be opportunities to make exercises that are typical exam questions. The teaching assistants will be present for providing feedback.

One bonus point can be awarded from assignments during the semester, which entitles the student to add maximum one point to the final grade.
