Atoms and Molecules

This module aims to equip you with the conceptual, theoretical and computational skills required for the analysis and engineering of atomic and molecular systems, with an emphasis on biomolecules. You’ll explore the molecules of life, looking at the physics that holds them together, the chemistry by which they react in watery solution and at their structures, motions and reactivities. Looking at self-organisation, you’ll also discuss the very important phenomenon for all living matter: how to generate large scale and defined structures out of a bunch of individual proteins. As part of this module, you will focus on revising and extending your A level skills in Mathematics to support with plotting and fitting data.
