Section Description

Physics 498 EBP: Experimental Biophysics Students in this advanced laboratory course will participate in module-based experiments that involve cutting-edge methods and questions in biological physics. We will explore techniques such as optical imaging with resolution beyond the diffraction limit and high-throughput DNA sequencing. Through these activities, students will explore the methods that have opened the new field of quantitative biophysics and a predictive understanding of topics such as evolutionary and cellular dynamics.
