Biophysics Lecture Notes

The topics that will be presented in this course note include an introduction to the elementary structure of DNA, proteins, membranes, and cells, and the physical principles that govern the resulting structures. Here, the physical quantities such as temperature, energy, enthalpy, entropy, and free energy will be employed to understand why a biological system chooses particular state at conditions under study.
