Methods in Biophysical Chemistry
Below are the files for your first two homework assignments. Assignment 0 is the programming assignment, which you should look at right away. Assignment 1 is not trivial and will require you to read a substantial portion of Taylor. It may be a good idea to start on that early, too.
- Assignment 0 Handout (Programming Assignment)
- Assignment 1 Handout
- PyMOL Tutorial (needed for assignment 1)
The syllabus for the course can be found here in PDF format.
We will use two textbooks in the class:
- Van Holde, Johnson, and Ho. Principles of Physical Biochemistry (2nd ed.). [Amazon]
- Taylor. An Introduction to Error Analysis: The Study of Uncertainties in Physical Measurements (2nd ed.). [Amazon]
In the past, many students have downloaded illegal copies of these textbooks from the Internet. You are encouraged not to do this. Not only is it illegal, it violates the MSU Honor Code: "As a Mississippi State University Student, I will conduct myself with honor and integrity at all times. I will not lie, cheat or steal, nor will I accept the actions of those that do."
