Physical Biology of the Cell, Paperback


Physical Biology of the Cell is a textbook for a first course in physical biology or biophysics for undergraduate or graduate students.

It maps the huge and complex landscape of cell and molecular biology from the distinct perspective of physical biology.

As a key organizing principle, the proximity of topics is based on the physical concepts that unite a given set of biological phenomena.

Herein lies the central premise: that the appropriate application of a few fundamental physical models can serve as the foundation of whole bodies of quantitative biological intuition, useful across a wide range of biological problems.

The Second Edition features full-color illustrations throughout, two new chapters, a significantly expanded set of end-of-chapter problems, and is available in a variety of e-book formats.
