  2. Illinois Physics 498: Introduction to Biological Physics

    07 Apr 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Paul R Selvin

    We will apply simple yet powerfulideas of physics to gain some understanding of biology. (What is theinertia of a bacteria and how does this affect its behavior?) We willbegin with atoms, move to molecules, then macromolecules, then cells,and finally whole systems. For example, how do we see? The...
