Genes, membranes, motor proteins:
Nonequilibrium statistical physics and applications in biology

Dr. Johannes Berg
Institut für Theoretische Physik, Universität zu Köln

The vast majority of natural processes take place out of equilibrium. In particular, biological systems rarely ever follow an equilibrium dynamics. This course covers the fundamental concepts of non-equilibrium physics. Many examples will be drawn from current topics in quantitative biology.

Topics include

The lectures are aimed at Masters and PhD students. They are part of the module StatBio of the Masters in Physics.
