This fully revised 2nd edition of biophysics: An Introduction is a survey of the study of biological organisation from the molecule to the global environment.


What does this book cover?


Biophysics has always been a fast-moving field, but now more than ever we are seeing changes in the way we conceive of theoretical biology. As new methods of conceptualising and sensing the dynamics and kinetics of life systems become available, there is an even greater need for books like this, which familiarise new students with the latest methods.


Key topics of the book include:


  • Recent developments in Biophysics and closely related fields
  • Detailed overviews of molecular biophysics and theoretical biophysics
  • The latest advances in protein folding and dynamics
  • Membrane assembly and transport at the molecular level
  • Photo-biophysics and noise-enhanced processes
