Meets in 726 Broadway, room 1045.

This course focuses on the fundamental physical processes exploited by living organisms in the process of living. In particular, it introduces and develops elements of equilibrium and nonequilibrium statistical mechanics to explain how the molecular-scale components of cells store and process information, how they organize themselves into functional structures, and how these structures cooperatively endow cells with the ability to eat, move, respond to their environment, communicate, and reproduce.
