Course objectives
The goal of this course is to make the students acquainted with the structure and function of biopolymers. Special attention is paied to the physical nature of intermolecular forces which determine the properties of biopolymers. After the course the student should be able to predict basic physical and chemical properties of a biopolymer from its structural formula.
