My colleagues and I are interested in finding what Mathematica courseware
is available for Biophysics.  In particular, we are teaching a new
Biophysics computational course and are developing modules on topics
such as

	o Vibration: Eigenvalues and normal modes
	o Potential energy minimization & molecular conformation
	o Matrix methods, L-systems, and fractal plants
	o population dynamics
	o Fourier analysis
	o The action potential

We have searched through MathSource without finding too much of direct
interest.  Not wanting to re-invent the wheel, pointers to appropriate
extant courseware is of interest.
