This series reflects the tremendous impact of computational tools in the study and practice of biophysics and biochemistry today. The goal is to introduce the principles and methods for computer simulation and modeling of biologically important macromolecules. The titles cover both fundamental concepts and state-of-the-art approaches, with specific examples illustrating cutting-edge methodology. The series is designed to cover modeling approaches spanning multiple scales: atoms, molecules, cells, organs, organisms, and populations. Important methodological aspects of molecular modeling and simulations are presented together with real biological problems. In addition to educating students on basic principles and techniques, these books facilitate interdisciplinary research by bringing professionals up to speed on key advances in the field.
New books in the series are commissioned by invitation. Authors are also welcome to contact the Series Editor (Prof. Nikolay Dokholyan: [email protected]) or the publisher (Carolina Antunes, Physics Editor: [email protected]) to discuss new title ideas.
