Modern phys (trans to upper division phys course)

Math methods in physics

Theoretical mechanics

Thermodynamics

int ro to Quantum mechanics (1 to 2 semesters)

Math courses

Intro to higher math

Calc of sevreral varariables (taking it now)

Intro to diffeq

Linear algebra

Qualitative ordinary differential equation (more advanced course)

Graph theory

Math bio.

I plan to take intro to quantum mechanics in my senior yr, the 2nd semester course will have time conflict with math bio; i wonder if these phys courses will serve me well for bio research in the future. I know thermodynamics is really important in protein science, but will i be better off taking the chem sequence? I'm not too crazy about chem because the class, from wat I've hrd is poorly taught. The phys chemistry sequence (2 semester) cover thermochemistry and quantum chemistry, but i figure it maynot be as in depth as that in phys. which one should I take?

How will quantum mechanics play a role in molecular biology? How will it help exactly if I were to pursue a career in research (MD/PhD programs)
