Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub


This book presents the fundamentals of molecular biophysics, and highlights the connection between molecules and biological phenomena, making it an important text across a variety of science disciplines.

The topics covered in the book include:

  • Phase transitions that occur in biosystems (protein crystallisation, globule-coil transition etc)
  • Liquid crystallinity as an example of the delicate range of partially ordered phases found with biological molecules
  • How molecules move and propel themselves at the cellular level
  • The general features of self-assembly with examples from proteins
  • The phase behaviour of DNA

The physical toolbox presented within this text will form a basis for students to enter into a wide range of pure and applied bioengineering fields in medical, food and pharmaceutical areas.
