Biophysics is a rapidly-evolving interdisciplinary science that applies theories and methods of the physical sciences to questions of biology. Biophysics encompasses many disciplines, including physics, chemistry, mathematics, biology, biochemistry, medicine, pharmacology, physiology, and neuroscience, and it is essential that scientists working in these varied fields are able to understand each other's research. Comprehensive Biophysics will help bridge that communication gap.

Written by a team of researchers at the forefront of their respective fields, under the guidance of Chief Editor Edward Egelman, Comprehensive Biophysics provides definitive introductions to a broad array of topics, uniting different areas of biophysics research - from the physical techniques for studying macromolecular structure to protein folding, muscle and molecular motors, cell biophysics, bioenergetics and more. The result is this comprehensive scientific resource - a valuable tool both for helping researchers come to grips quickly with material from related biophysics fields outside their areas of expertise, and for reinforcing their existing knowledge.

About Edward Egelman

Edward Egelman received a BA in physics and a PhD in biophysics from Brandeis University. He was a postdoctoral fellow at the Medical Research Council Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge, UK, and then an assistant professor at Yale University. He was an associate and full professor at the University of Minnesota Medical School, and then moved to the University of Virginia in 1999 where he is a professor of biochemistry and molecular genetics. He is currently editor-in-chief of Biophysical Journal. He has been elected a fellow of the Biophysical Society and of the American Academy of Microbiology. His research focuses on the structure and function of macromolecular complexes, mainly using electron cryo-microscopy and computational image analysis. He has spent many years studying the structure of F-actin, as well as helical nucleoprotein complexes formed by recombination proteins (such as the bacterial RecA and the eukaryotic Rad51) on DNA.
