Applications of nonequilibrium models in biological systems: Lecture II

Thursday 6th April 2006 - 11:30 to 12:30
INI Seminar Room 1

There are many biological functions that involve movement of motors along a filament or polymeric molecule. The motors use chemical energy to propel themselves along the track. The description of these systems is in many cases done using models of driven systems. The lectures will give an introduction to molecular motors discussing their use in biological systems and the experiments which study them. Then several application of models of driven systems in the interpretation of experiments will be reviewed.
