Biomolecular Kinetics and Cellular Dynamics: Course Description

Graduate students can learn about biomolecular interactions and its equilibrium and kinetic math models in the 'Biomolecular Kinetics and Cellular Dynamics' OpenCourseWare. The free course is provided by MIT's Biological Engineering Department. Students can also study biological problems and its applications of quantitative examinations. The course examines these problems from single molecular interactions to a large group of cells. The MIT course was taught by Professors Bruce Tidor and Karl Wittrup in 2004 as a lecture class with two sessions per week. Some of the lecture topics discussed in the on-campus class included noncovalent biomolecular interactions, protein-ligand binding equilibria and diffusion limits in association kinetics. The OpenCourseWare provides a complete list of bibliographies for the required and supplemental textbooks used for the course, such as 'Receptors: Models for Binding, Trafficking, and Signaling' by Douglas A. Lauffenburger and J. Jennifer Linderman.

This free graduate course includes a bibliography of the readings. If you are interested in taking this free course, visit the cellular dynamics and biomolecular kinetics course page.
