PHYS 4230 - Properties and Functions of Processive Molecular Motors 3 Credit(s)
Enrollment Requirement: Prerequisite: PHYS 2220 or consent of instructor.
Meets with PHYS 6230 and 6231. This course will provide an overview of microtubule and actin-based motors: their structure, their function (including topics of motor regulation,) and the quantitative approaches used to study and model motor activity. Students with back grounds in biology or physics are equally encouraged. The class will outline the biological context of motoractivity, discuss motor families and details of their mechano-chemical activity, and further cover measurement and modeling techniques as well as related advanced topics.
