TOPICS IN MECHANOBIOLOGY
2014/2015, Semester 2
Speciality Research Institutes/Centres (Mechanobiology Institute)
Modular Credits: 4
To provide a working understanding of the basic cell functions with the physical and chemical principles underlying them. In practical terms, we will attempt to solve a number of important problems relevant to replication, transcription, translation, translocation, motility, and other important functions. The assignments will primarily involve reading original literatures under the guidance of MBI investigators to complete a few entries into the Manual for Cellular and Molecular Functions.
Basic Physical Chemistry, Calculus, Biology, Graduate standing, MB5101 or approval of the module coordinator.
