BIEN 320 Molecular, Cellular and Tissue Biomechanics (3 credits)

Offered by: Bioengineering (Faculty of Engineering)

Overview

BIEN : Basic mechanics of biological building blocks, focusing on the cytoskeleton, with examples from pathology. At the macromolecular level: weak/variable crosslinking and hydrolysis driven athermal processes. At the cellular/tissue level: cell architecture and function. Discussion of modern analytical techniques capable of single-molecule to tissue scale measurements.

Terms: Winter 2018
