Assignment to Modules

Further Information

Courses are together with exams the building blocks for modules. Please keep in mind that information on the contents, learning outcomes and, especially examination conditions are given on the module level only – see section "Assignment to Modules" above.

additional remarks In this lecture, first the microstructure of biomaterials will be introduced. Using the biosynthesis of proteins, DNA-origami and virus replication as examples, self-assembly as a key principle in the design of biomaterials will be discussed. Diffusion as a key transport mechanism in bio-matter and mechanisms for its regulation will be reviewed. As one example, charge screening by counter ions will be highlighted. The microscopic design of selective permeability filters will be explained and how they are used by nature to establish and maintain gradients of e.g. ions or protons. The principles of signal transduction in neurons will be discussed – especially similarities to and differences from the charge transport in coaxial cables. Finally, the molecular principles used by nature to establish light absorption and conversion into chemical energy e.g. during photosynthesis will be discussed and key concept of biomineralization process will be reviewed.
