Many levels of biological organization: molecular cellular tissue organism population Course Syllabus Physical principles underlying biological processes and mechanisms (movement, design, architecture, materials, transport). •3 lectures per week •Textbook (Vogel) •Handouts (on the web) •Weekly problem sets (physics and math don’t get easliy or reasonably memorized) •Critical reviews of the scientific literature •Discussion (review problem sets, panel discussion of papers) •One course project (working in pairs, you develop your own physical analysis of biological problems)
