Learning outcomes

The course revealing the physical bases permeating the complex physical systems that make up the simplest life’s unit, the cell. In particular:
- thermodynamics of biological systems far of equilibrium and the role of natural selection
- nanoscale structures as platforms for biological processes and their regulation
- application of experimental physical techniques to the study of intracellular physical processes, with particular regard to optical microscopy / nanoscopy
