In keeping with goal and style of the Handbook in Modern Biophysics series, the proposed book will maintain a chapter structure that contains two parts: concepts and biological application. The book also integrates all the chapters into a smooth, continuous discourse. The first and second chapters establish the mathematical methods and theoretical framework underpinning the different topics in the rest if the book. Other chapters will use the theoretical framework as a basis to discuss optical and NMR approaches. Each chapter will contain innovative didactic elements that facilitate teaching, self-study, and research preparation (key points, summary, exercise, references).
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 applica¬tions. With the addition of problem sets, guides to further study, and references, the interested reader can continue to independently explore the ideas presented. Volume III: Biomedical Applications of Biophysics Editor: Thomas Jue, PhD In Biomedical Applications of Biophysics, leading scholars present key topics pertinent to biomedical research: • Protein Structure Prediction • Molecular Modeling of Biomembranes: A How-To Approach • Introduction to Electron Paramagnetic Resonance Spectroscopy • Theory and Applications of Biomolecular NMR Spectroscopy • FRET and Its Biological Application as a Molecular Ruler • Introduction to Modern Techniques of Mass Spectrometry • Transmission Electron Microscopy And Computer-Aided Image Processing For 3d Structural Analysis Of Macromolecules • Raman Spectroscopy of Living Cells
