Course content
The seminar is focused on familiarization of the student with the new trends in biohysics and in the science in general and on improvement of the ability of the student to present the acquired knowledge. During the seminar classes, the student elaborates two presentations in PowerPoint. The topic of the first presentation will stem from the Biophysical Journal and the topic will follow on the knowledge acquired during profiled subject of Biophysics study branch (e.g. usage of FRET, transmission of ions through channels, mechanism of vision, etc.). The second presentation is in the form of popular scientific lecture on up-to-date topic (e.g. new viruses, cloning, free radicals, mechanisms of the stress, artificial intelligence, quantum phenomena, etc.).
