AS.250.403. Bioenergetics: Origins, Evolution and Logic of Living Systems. 3.0 Credits.

The trait shared by all living systems is the capacity to perform energy transduction. This biophysics/biochemistry course examines the physico-chemical and structural basis of biological energy transduction.Emphasis is on understanding the molecular and cellular logic of the flow of energy in living systems. The course explores the connection between fundamental physical requirements for energy transduction and the organization, evolution and possibly even the origins of biological molecules, cells, and organisms. Implications for planet earth¹s energy balance and for the design of synthetic organisms and of artificial energy transducing machines will be discussed, time permitting. Recommended Course Background: One semester of Biochemistry. Recommended Course Background: One semester of Biochemistry
Instructor(s): B. Garcia-Moreno
