This online course comes from the Open Learning Initiative (OLI) by Carnegie Mellon. “The course includes self-guiding materials and activities, and is ideal for independent learners, or instructors trying out this course package.” "A consistent theme in the course is the development of a fundamental understanding of the interactions of biological molecules from a thermodynamic and kinetic point of view. Accordingly, a quantitative analysis of biochemical interactions is emphasized throughout the entire course. An additional important feature of the course is the detailed exploration of the structure of biochemical molecules using Jmol, a widely used Java-based computer-graphics program. Overview •Structural features of proteins and nucleic acids. •Non-linear (allosteric) behavior of... Show More
