Bio-energetics of Life Processes

Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur and NPTEL via Swayam


Bioenergetics is a fundamental process in the evolution. The primitive self assembly of molecules to the supra-assembly of large polymers are govern by the basic laws of energetics. In this course, we will be discussing the basic energy harvesting processes which govern the self assembly of biomolecules and their utilization to generate energy to run the biological machinery of evolution.


Week 1 : Introduction to Bioenergetics
Week 2 : Chemosynthesis and energy dynamics
Week 3 : Photosynthesis & photosynthetic electron transfer
Week 4 : Mitochondrial electron transport chain and ATP synthesis
