Addressing key aspects of cancer research from an interdisciplinary perspective and presenting analytical, quantitative and computational models, this book is a pedagogical introduction to cancer for physics students and researchers, as well as a reference text for cancer biologists interested in quantitative tools and approaches from physics.
Protein Physics: A Course of Lectures covers the most general problems of protein structure, folding and function. It describes key experimental facts and introduces concepts and theories, dealing with fibrous, membrane, and water-soluble globular proteins, in both their native and denatured states. The book systematically summarizes and presents the results...
The book bridges the gap between existing health physics textbooks and reference material needed by a practicing health physicist as the 21st century progresses. This material necessarily encompasses emerging radiation-generating technologies, advances in existing technology, and applications of existing technology to new areas.

A Top 25 CHOICE 2016 Title, and recipient of the CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title OAT Award. How much energy is released in ATP hydrolysis? How many mRNAs are in a cell? How genetically similar are two random people? What is faster, transcription or translation? Cell Biology by the Numbers explores...
Combining state-of-the-art research with a strong pedagogic approach, this text provides a comprehensive guide to the theory, practice and applications of optical tweezers. Aimed at practitioners, advanced undergraduate and beginner graduate students, it is also ideal for self-study and for practitioners willing to enter the field of optical manipulation.
Guiding the reader through the maze of rapidly unfolding discovery, Al-Khalili and McFadden communicate vividly the excitement of this explosive new field of quantum biology, with its potentially revolutionary applications, and also offer insights into the biggest puzzle of all: what is life?
This comprehensive textbook presents a self-contained guide to bioinformatics, defined in its broadest sense as the application of information science to biology. Emphasis is placed on providing both a firm grounding in the core concepts and a clear overview of the complete field of bioinformatics.
This book on mathematical modeling of biological processes includes a wide selection of biological topics that demonstrate the power of mathematics and computational codes in setting up biological processes with a rigorous and predictive framework.
This book focuses on the application of fluorescence to study motor proteins myosins, kinesins, DNA helicases and RNA polymerases. It can be used by researchers to gain an insight into their first experiments, or by experienced researchers who are looking to expand their research to new areas.
