Latest Biophysics Stories
Scientists have shown the energy conditions, under which a weak signal supplied to a physical system emerges as a stronger signal at the output thanks to the presence of random noise (a process known as stochastic resonance).
Scientists from the Cluster of Excellence Nanosystems Initiative Munich have now succeeded in building a simple model system consisting of only three components to study the laws of such so-called absorbing states.
CTIA filed a lawsuit on Friday to block the enforcement of a legislation in San Francisco requiring cell phones retailers to display a handset's specific absorption rate (SAR).
Improved device eliminates a barrier to handling nanoscale particles.
In work published in the June 2011 issue of Experimental Biology and Medicine, Kolossov, Spring and their co-investigators - a multidisciplinary team within the Institute for Genomic Biology at the University of Illinois - have transferred the concept of redox-sensitive Green Fluorescent Proteins (GFPs) to a quantitative FÃ¶rster resonance energy transfer (FRET) imaging platform.
ROCKVILLE, Md., May 26, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology has elected Jeremy M. Berg, Ph.D., as the next president of the nonprofit. His term begins July 1, 2012.
Sequencing DNA base pairs â€“ the individual molecules that make up DNA â€“ is key for medical researchers working toward personalized medicine.
Whether you're talking about genes, or neurons, or the workings of a virus, at the most fundamental level, biology is a matter of proteins.
In two new studies, researchers provide the first detailed view of the elaborate chemical and mechanical interactions that allow the ribosome â€“ the cell's protein-building machinery â€“ to insert a growing protein into the cellular membrane.
Scientists' attempt to measure biomagnetism in plants sets upper limit for what they generate.
The Biophysical Journal is a peer-reviewed scientific journal published biweekly by Cell Press on behalf of the Biophysical Society. It was established in 1960. The editor-in-chief is Edward Egelman. It covers all aspects of biophysics. It is the leading international journal for original research in molecular, cellular, and system biophysics. Modern biophysics is a broad and rapidly advancing field encompassing the study of biological structures with a focus on mechanisms at the...
The European Biophysics Journal is a scientific journal published by Springer Science+Business Media on behalf of the European Biophysical Societies Association. Published works occur in the field of biophysics (the study of biological phenomena using physical methods and concepts). It publishes original papers, reviews and letters. The editor-in-chief is Anthony Watts of University of Oxford. Areas of research that are frequently published in the journal include: structure and dynamics of...
