Requisite(s): 65212 Chemistry 2 OR 65213 Chemistry 2 (Advanced)
These requisites may not apply to students in certain courses. See access conditions.


Biological systems are extremely important in nanotechnology and many new applications are being developed by mimicking natural systems. Biology is extremely good at self-assembling complex, multi-functional systems at the nanoscale, e.g. cell membranes or DNA. By understanding how these systems work, nanotechnologists are developing new biosensing, biomedical and materials applications, e.g. the ion-channel biosensor. This subject investigates the science that underlies these biological processes and how it is applied in contemporary nanotechnologies.
