Unterrichts-/ Lehrsprachen


The (molecular) biophysics course provides an overview over basic physical concepts and models: thermodynamics, electromagnetism, molecular forces, motility, molecules, fluids, solids (and briefly introduction to experimental techniques).

The course will point out the importance of physics on biological sciences and will start from the physics foundation acquired by students in their bachelor studies.
The mathematical tools necessary to understand the lecture contents will be introduced.

Inhaltliche Voraussetzungen (erwartete Kenntnisse)

Special knowledge in biology or biochemistry is not required.
Some knowledge is physics, physical chemistry and mathematics will be an advantage.


The aim of the course is to build the necessary knowledge to start tackle questions like how does biology works from a physical point of view.

After the course the students will have understanding about biomolecular interactions, physico-chemical properties of soft matter and how the phenomena involved can be investigated with physical tools.
