TitlePhysical principles in sensing and signaling: With an Introduction to Modeling in Biology
Author(s)Robert G. Endres
PublicationOxford, Oxford University Press, 2013.
Descriptionxi, 144p.
Abstract NoteAlthough invisible to the bare eye, bacterial cells are large enough to make complex decisions. Cells are composed of thousands of different molecular species including DNA, proteins, and smaller molecules, allowing them to sense their environment, to process this information, and to respond accordingly. Such responses include expression of genes or the control of their movement. Despite these properties, a living cell exists in the physical world and follows its laws. Keeping this in mind can help answer questions such as how cells work and why they implement solutions to problems the way they do. Applying physical principles in biology allows researchers to solve challenging problems at the interface between biology and the physical sciences, including how accurately biological cells can sense chemicals in their environment, how cells encode physical stimuli in biochemical pathways, or how cells amplify signals and adapt to persistent stimulation. In this book, the reader is introduced to this fascinating topic without the need for extensive mathematical details or huge prior knowledge in biological physics

TitleBiophysics of the failing heart : physics and biology of heart muscle
Author(s)R. John Solaro (ed.);Jil C. Tardiff (ed.)
Description1 online resource (vi, 253 pages) : illustrations (some color)
Abstract NoteBiophysics of the Failing Heart considers major biophysical mechanisms for why hearts responding to stressors enter into maladaptive processes, eventually leading to an inability of the heart to respond efficiently to hemodynamic loads--especially during exercise. The book describes biophysical techniques that have been applied to determine the triggers for the heart failure process, as well as the mechanisms for sustaining the disorders. These techniques include measurements of active and passive mechanical properties and hemodynamics at levels of organization ranging from molecules to hearts beating in situ. Biophysical concepts and approaches are also applied to determination of signaling and signal transduction, energetics, ionic currents, transport processes, electro-chemical and chemo-mechanical coupling. Modern research approaches and clinical understanding of heart failure demands integration of multiple aspects of the disorders. By its emphasis on biophysical aspects of a prevalent clinical condition, this monograph is unique in its perspective and focus, and will be of value to clinicians and researchers at all levels

TitleBiophysics and structure to counter threats and challenges
Author(s)Joseph D. Puglisi (ed.);Manolia V. Margaris (ed.)
PublicationDordrecht, Springer, 2013.
Description1 online resource
Abstract NoteThis ASI brought together a diverse group of experts who span virology, biology, biophysics, chemistry, physics and engineering. Prominent lecturers representing world renowned scientists from nine (9) different countries, and students from around the world representing eighteen (18) countries, participated in the ASI organized by Professors Joseph Puglisi (Stanford University, USA) and Alexander Arseniev (Moscow, RU). The central hypothesis underlying this ASI was that interdisciplinary research, merging principles of physics, chemistry and biology, can drive new discovery in detecting and fighting chemical and bioterrorism agents, lead to cleaner environments and improved energy sources, and help propel development in NATO partner countries. At the end of the ASI students had an appreciation of how to apply each technique to their own particular research problem and to demonstrate that multifaceted approaches and new technologies are needed to solve the biological challenges of our time. The course succeeded in training a new generation of biologists and chemists who will probe the molecular basis for life and disease

TitleMembrane biophysics
Author(s)by Mohammad Ashrafuzzaman;Jack Tuszynski
PublicationBerlin, Springer, 2013.
Description1 online resource : ill
Abstract NotePhysics, mathematics and chemistry all play a vital role in understanding the true nature and functioning of biological membranes, key elements of living processes. Besides simple spectroscopic observations and electrical measurements of membranes we address in this book the phenomena of coexistence and independent existence of different membrane components using various theoretical approaches. This treatment will be helpful for readers who want to understand biological processes by applying both simple observations and fundamental scientific analysis. It provides a deep understanding of the causes and effects of processes inside membranes, and will thus eventually open new doors for high-level pharmaceutical approaches towards fighting membrane- and cell-related diseases

TitleBiophysical regulation of vascular differentiation and assembly
Author(s)Sharon Gerecht (ed.)
PublicationNew York, Springer, 2011.
Description1 online resource (xiii, 253 p.)
Abstract NoteBecause of their ability to differentiate and develop into functional vasculature, stem cells hold tremendous promise for therapeutic applications. However, the scientific understanding and the ability to engineer these cellular systems is still in its early stages, and must advance significantly for the therapeutic potential of stem cells to be realized. Stem cell differentiation and function are exquisitely tuned by their microenvironment. This book will provide a unique perspective of how different aspect of the vasculature microenvironment regulates differentiation and assembly. Recent eff
