Abstract:

Annotation

Biophysics is an interdisciplinary subject where the methods of physical sciences are used to study biological systems. Biophysics courses are taken by students in biophysics programs, in addition to those studying biology, physics, chemistry, biochemistry, physiology, math, statistics, bioengineering, nanotechnology, neuroscience, computer science, pharmacology, agriculture, and many more. Biophysics For Dummies tracks to a typical introductory biophysics course and will include:The nature of biophysicsMathematical and physical formulas that can be applied to biological systemsMolecular structure of biological systemsThe dynamics of biological systemsEnvironmental factors related to biophysicsKinetics of biological systems.
