9780123749208: Comprehensive Biophysics

Biophysics is a rapidly-evolving interdisciplinary science that applies theories and methods of the physical sciences to questions of biology. Biophysics encompasses many disciplines, including physics, chemistry, mathematics, biology, biochemistry, medicine, pharmacology, physiology, and neuroscience, and it is essential that scientists working in these varied fields are able to understand each other's research. Comprehensive Biophysics will help bridge that communication gap.

Written by a team of researchers at the forefront of their respective fields, under the guidance of Chief Editor Edward Egelman, Comprehensive Biophysics provides definitive introductions to a broad array of topics, uniting different areas of biophysics research - from the physical techniques for studying macromolecular structure to protein folding, muscle and molecular motors, cell biophysics, bioenergetics and more. The result is this comprehensive scientific resource - a valuable tool both for helping researchers come to grips quickly with material from related biophysics fields outside their areas of expertise, and for reinforcing their existing knowledge.

  • Biophysical research today encompasses many areas of biology. These studies do not necessarily share a unique identifying factor. This work unites the different areas of research and allows users, regardless of their background, to navigate through the most essential concepts with ease, saving them time and vastly improving their understanding
  • The field of biophysics counts several journals that are directly and indirectly concerned with the field. There is no reference work that encompasses the entire field and unites the different areas of research through deep foundational reviews. Comprehensive Biophysics fills this vacuum, being a definitive work on biophysics. It will help users apply context to the diverse journal literature offering, and aid them in identifying areas for further research
  • Chief Editor Edward Egelman (E-I-C, Biophysical Journal) has assembled an impressive, world-class team of Volume Editors and Contributing Authors. Each chapter has been painstakingly reviewed and checked for consistent high quality. The result is an authoritative overview which ties the literature together and provides the user with a reliable background information and citation resource

From the Back Cover:

Comprehensive Biophysics provides in-depth, broad, reference coverage of the most active areas within the field of Biophysics. Each of the 9 volumes that together make up this reference set covers a specific area within the field of Biophysics, and has been edited by a Volume Editor who is a prominent expert within the relevant subfield. To ensure the highest quality and consistency of style, the work has been overseen by Editor-in-Chief, Edward Egelman (University of Virginia, VA, USA).

  • Volume 1: Biophysical Techniques for Structural Characterization of Macromolecules (Jane Dyson, The Scripps Research Institute, CA, USA)
  • Volume 2: Biophysical Techniques for Characterization of Cells (Petra Schwille, TU Dresden, Dresden Germany)
  • Volume 3: The Folding of Proteins and Nucleic Acids (Valerie Daggett, University of Washington, WA, USA)
  • Volume 4: Molecular Motors and Motility (Yale Goldman & E. Michael Ostap, University of Pennsylvania, PA, USA)
  • Volume 5: Membranes (Lukas Tamm, University of Virginia, VA, USA)
  • Volume 6: Channels (Mauricio Montal, University of California, San Diego, CA, USA)
  • Volume 7: Cell Biophysics (Denis Wirtz, John Hopkins University, Maltimore, MD, USA)
  • Volume 8: Bioenergetics (Stuart Ferguson, University of Oxford, UK)
  • Volume 9: Simulation and Modeling (Harel Weinstein, Weill Cornell Medical College, NY, USA)

In addition to traditional (i.e. molecular) biophysical topics like structural biology or enzyme kinetics, modern biophysics encompasses an extraordinarily broad range of research. It is becoming increasingly common for biophysicists to apply the models and experimental techniques derived from physics, as well as mathematics and statistics, to larger systems such as cells and tissues. This reference work encompasses a wealth of information which, through the use of carefully placed cross-referencing, enables the user to navigate through the content intuitively. Users who blanch at the thought of unfamiliar (information) territory, will be pleasantly surprised at how lucidly the topics are presented. This is an indispensible resource for students and professionals working in the field of biophysics or any of the many related fields of research.

About the Author:

Edward Egelman received a BA in physics and a PhD in biophysics from Brandeis University. He was a postdoctoral fellow at the Medical Research Council Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge, UK, and then an assistant professor at Yale University. He was an associate and full professor at the University of Minnesota Medical School, and then moved to the University of Virginia in 1999 where he is a professor of biochemistry and molecular genetics. He is currently editor-in-chief of Biophysical Journal. He has been elected a fellow of the Biophysical Society and of the American Academy of Microbiology. His research focuses on the structure and function of macromolecular complexes, mainly using electron cryo-microscopy and computational image analysis. He has spent many years studying the structure of F-actin, as well as helical nucleoprotein complexes formed by recombination proteins (such as the bacterial RecA and the eukaryotic Rad51) on DNA.
