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.
