How do fundamental physical laws constrain life processes inside the
cell, shaping biological function? This course explores the
nonequilibrium statistical physics of cellular machines: the molecular
motors driving cell movement, the chaperones that assist protein
folding, the information-processing circuitry of genetic
networks. We will introduce the theoretical models that underlie the
latest research findings, and explore the challenges of understanding
the stochastic dynamics of complex systems. A detailed list of topics
can be found in the syllabus
