Bioenergetics is a fundamental process in the evolution. The primitive self assembly of molecules to the supra-assembly of large polymers are govern by the basic laws of energetics. In this course, we will be discussing the basic energy harvesting processes which govern the self assembly of biomolecules and their utilization to generate energy to run the biological machinery of evolution.
Week 1 : Introduction to Bioenergetics Week 2 : Chemosynthesis and energy dynamics Week 3 : Photosynthesis & photosynthetic electron transfer Week 4 : Mitochondrial electron transport chain and ATP synthesis
MOOCs stand for Massive Open Online Courses. These arefree online courses from universities around the world (eg. StanfordHarvardMIT) offered to anyone with an internet connection.
