InhaltThis lecture course targets physics students and students of interdisciplinary sciences (major physics) for their education in biophysics. In this course the basics of molecular biology are presented bearing in mind the special interests of the physics students.
The topics include: The molecules of life - properties of biological macromolecules. Discussion of structure and function of proteins, quantitative description molecular interactions and of enzyme function.
Introduction to methods to study biological macromolecules: purification techniques, optical spectroscopy, X-ray crystallography, electron microscopy (EM) and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy.
Introduction to the genetic system of E.coli bacteria: DNA, RNA and protein biosynthesis (transcription and translation) and biotechnological applications.
