S. No. Title Due date Form of submission Date posted Additional Information Solution
1 Dimensional analysis and the Olympics of running [pdf] 11-08-16(postponed due to technical problems) Hand-written OR printed, hard copy to be brought to class on 11-08-2016 08-08-16 04-08-16 (glitch fixed 8-8-16) Use any source from the internet, published literature, books etc. Consult freely amongst colleagues. But submit your own assignment.
2 Program code for iterative coin flipping [pdf] 25-08-2016 @0900h Upload in the Google-Classroom interface 23-08-2016 Details on the Google-Classroom site.

Pylab, Scipy and Numpy are needed for you to be able to run the example code. I recommend (but do not insist) that you use Canopy or equivalent IDEs.

To be evaluated in class LHC303 on 25-08-2016. Post-class modifications permitted, but evaluated separately.
3 Assignment 3: Time-dependence of protein lifetime: design an iterative model to reproduce experimental estimates of protein lifetimes, based on S. cerevisae abundance values [PDF] 13-Sep-2016 @1400h Upload *.py code, and output plots in Google-Classroom 25-Sep-2016 Use what you learnt about iterative calculations (Euler finite time-stepping) and Poisson processes (rare events) to iterate over the number of proteins, and generate events of degradation. Compare output lifetime frequency distributions to those measured.

The computer-lab (LHC303) will be made available on 8-Sep-2016 from 9-1200h for help by the TA Neha Khetan

Instructor will evaluate the submission and grade it.
4 Assignment 04: In class assignment and correction
5 Assignment05: Problems relating to entropy, combinations and energetics

Please upload your assignment as a PDF file on this classroom site. The submission date HAS BEEN EXTENDED.

6 Assignment 06: Radius of gyration

Please calculate the Rg for each protein and plot the values as described in the assignment. It will be evaluated in class on Thursday.
