Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions
Seminar talks by students on physics in life. Biological physics focusses on: What are the physics problems that organisms need to solve? How do living systems represent and process information? How do macroscopic functions of life emerge from interaction among many microscopic constituents? And how do living systems navigate parameter space? Students will choose for their presentation among original research articles that not only show novel physics concepts in the living world but are also exemplary for pedagogical and inspiring scientific writing.
After successful participation in the module the student can use the basic methods of literature retrieval, condense their knowlegde from scientific papers into a presentation and obtain presentation skills.
They have learned about the broad scope of biological physics.
