The course will provide the students with insights in the physical concepts of some of the most fascinating processes that have been discovered in the last decades: those underpinning the molecular machinery of the biological cell. These concepts will be introduced and illustrated by a wide range of phenomena and processes in the cell, including biomolecular structure and dynamics, DNA packing in the genome, molecular motors and the cell cytoskeleton.

The aim of the course is to provide students with:
