About this book

HANDBOOK OF MODERN BIOPHYSICS

Series Editor Thomas Jue, PhD

Handbook of Modern Biophysics brings current biophysics topics into focus, so that biology, medical, engineering, mathematics, and physical-science students or researchers can learn fundamental concepts and the application of new techniques in addressing biomedical challenges. Chapters explicate the conceptual framework of the physics formalism and illustrate the biomedical applications. With the addition of problem sets, guides to further study, and references, the interested reader can continue to explore independently the ideas presented.

Volume I: Fundamental Concepts in Biophysics

Editor Thomas Jue, PhD

In Fundamental Concepts in Biophysics, prominent professors have established a foundation for the study of biophysics related to the following topics:

Mathematical Methods in Biophysics

Quantum Mechanics Basic to Biophysical Methods

Computational Modeling of Receptor–Ligand Binding and Cellular Signaling Processes

Fluorescence Spectroscopy

Electrophysiological Measurements of Membrane Proteins

Single-Particle Tracking

NMR Measurement of Biomolecule Diffusion

 

About the Editor

Thomas Jue is a Professor in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Medicine at the University of California Davis. He is an internationally recognized expert in developing and applying magnetic resonance techniques to study animal as well as human physiology in vivo and has published extensively in the field of magnetic resonance spectroscopy and imaging, near-infrared spectroscopy, bioenergetics, cardiovascular regulation, exercise, and marine biology. Over the past several years, he has led the way as a Chair of the Biophysics Graduate Group Program to establish attractive but scholarly approaches to educate graduate students with a balance of physical-science/mathematics formalism and biomedical perspective in order to promote interest at the interface of physical science, engineering, mathematics, biology, and medicine. The Handbook of Modern Biophysics represents one approach.

Reviews

From the reviews: “Thomas Jue from the University of California Davis, has introduced a new series of books under the title Handbook of Modern Biophysics. … Reading of the first volume of the series Handbook of Modern Biophysics leads to the conclusion that this form of presentation of modern biophysical problems is very useful from the educational point of view. … very helpful for students and young scientists working in molecular biology, biochemistry or molecular physics.” (Genowefa Ślósarek, Acta Biochimica Polonica, December, 2009) “The book ‘Fundamental Concepts in Biophysics’ launches new book series, which shall be dedicated to exploration of physical techniques that are used to study biological systems. … Problems solutions are listed at the end of the book. Suggestions for further reading are included, as well. The book represents a very welcomed text for graduated students, their mentors, or for advanced researchers planning an excursion into a new experimental field.” (Ľubica Lacinová, General Physiology and Biophysics, Vol. 29, April, 2010)
