Cursusdoelen
Objective of this course is to teach you different concepts, techniques and applications in the field of bionanotechnology.

This course is offered in a flipped-classroom format. All lectures are videorecorded and can be found with additional study material and exercise materials on https://sites.google.com/site/bionanotechnology2017/. The site shows you part of the study material. For full access to the videolectures and slides, please contact the lecturer of the course. This format offers the possibility to do this course outside block 2A, in which it is assigned. In case you wish to do this outside block 2A, please contact the lecturer to make further detailed arrangements.
Inhoud
Bionanotechnology is a field of research and applications that sits at the interface between nanotechnology on the one hand and life sciences on the other.
 
This course includes
- An introduction into the field of bionanotechnology field
- Basics of nanobiology, including structure and function of DNA/RNA, DNA supercoiling, chromatin structure, structure and function of proteins, lipids, membranes, molecular motors, biological cells
- (Biological) nanoparticles, including gene therapy and DNA nanoparticles, inorganica and iron oxide nanoparticles, quantum dots, the unfamiliar world at the nanoscale, molecular interactions, Brownian motion, and diffusion
- Methods and techniques to study biology at the nanoscale, including fluorescence microscopy and other fluorescence-based technoniques, nanoscopy methods, scanning probe microscopy (AFM), single molecule force spectroscopy, elasticity mapping, optical tweezers, magnetic tweezers.
- Writing of a comprehensive essay on the applications of nanobiotechnology, based on a short literature study.     .
 
Assessment of this course is based on the grades for the essay (25%) and the written exam (75%).
