    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    If you are on the fence about being a Biophysics major, this is the class for you. We discuss what is studied in Biophysics. It is heavy on the science though.

    Course highlights:

    We learned much random mathematics. We learned about x ray crystallography and the bond strength and bending moment of DNA.. We learned how Rosalind Frank did not want to work with other people to help discover the DNA. We read two books on the discovery of DNA. We did have to write an abstract in the class. That was rather tough.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do your homework early and go to office hours to check over your homework before turning it in. If you memorize the lecture slides and understand how to do the math, you will get an A. (I got an A+). Make sure to ask questions often.
