By Konstantin Bogdanov

Biology in Physics is an intensive new publication which bridges the space among biology and physics. the purpose is to advertise an interdisciplinary trade of medical details and concepts, with a view to stimulate cooperation in examine. The scope of this quantity explores either the strategies and methods of biophysics and illustrates the most recent advances in our figuring out of the various particular mechanisms which are utilized by residing organisms. This quantity represents a different attempt to compile the data that will let a nonbiologically orientated physicist to understand the $64000 function that physics performs in existence sciences. Key positive factors * An creation to biophysics for non-specialist * Covers the entire very important topices in glossy biophysics * Takes account of the newest details rising from biophysical initiatives * studies on novel healing recommendations * provides an advanced-level evaluation of mechanisms that keep an eye on various tactics in organisms starting from bacterial to whales
