- Wiley 2006; US$ 275.00
Animal vision, the flowering of plants, and light-seeking movement of microbes are all examples of light-controlled behavior mediated by photosensory receptors. Upon illumination, these specialized pigment-containing proteins trigger a physiological response. Understanding their molecular function is the basis for the dissection of higher-level processes,... more...

Every organism must consume energy to survive. The food we eat is ultimately converted into chemical fuel for our cells, and the availability (or non-availability) of these fuels determines whether cells may grow and divide or starve and die. Not surprisingly, the energy metabolism is a key factor in sustaining or blocking the unlimited growth of cancer... more...

Physics for Life Sciences has its origins in a course that the author began developing at Union College in the mid ?80s to teach physics to life science students in a way that would interest them and show the connections of fundamental physics to modern biology and medicine. This book is directed at life science students, and integrates modern biology,... more...

Loewenstein is renowned for his discoveries in cell communication and biological information transfer. He applies information theory to recent findings in molecular biology and reveals the communication network inside and between our cells, offering a view of a hidden world where molecular information turns the wheels of life. He tracks this proces more...

What is Life? This is the question asked by Denis Noble in this very personal and at times deeply lyrical book. Noble is a renowned physiologist and systems biologist, and he argues that the genome is not life itself: to understand what life is, we must view it at a variety of different levels, all interacting with each other in a complex web. It is... more...
- Springer 2009; US$ 199.00
Helps biology and physical-science students or researchers learn fundamental concepts and apply biophysics techniques to address biomedical questions. This book includes chapters that establish the fundamental physics concepts, describe the instrumentation or technique, and illustrate applications in addressing complex questions in biology. more...
