Foundations of Biochemistry and Biophysics


About the Series

This textbook series focuses on foundational principles and experimental approaches across all areas of biological physics, covering core subjects in a modern biophysics curriculum. Individual titles address such topics as molecular biophysics, statistical biophysics, molecular modeling, single-molecule biophysics, and chemical biophysics. It is aimed at advanced undergraduate- and graduate-level curricula at the intersection of biological and physical sciences. The goal of the series is to facilitate interdisciplinary research by training biologists and biochemists in quantitative aspects of modern biomedical research and to teach key biological principles to students in physical sciences and engineering.

Authors are also welcome to contact the publisher (Physics Editor, Carolina Antunes: [email protected])  to discuss new title ideas.
