9780716798972: Biological Physics: with New Art by David Goodsell

Biological Physics focuses on new results in molecular motors, self-assembly, and single-molecule manipulation that have revolutionized the field in recent years, and integrates these topics with classical results. The text also provides foundational material for the emerging field of nanotechnology.

Biological Physics is built around a self-contained core geared toward undergraduate students who have had one year of calculus-based physics. Additional “Track-2” sections contain more advanced material for senior physics majors and graduate students.

Dr. Nelson serves on the Biophysical Society s Education Committee; he received Penn s highest teaching award in 2001, in part for creating the course that formed the basis for this book. Dr. Nelson was recently elected a Fellow of the American Physical Society."

Review:

Dr. Nelson has done a splendid job conveying how principles of physics apply to biological systems. -- Donald Jacobs, California State University-Northridge

Dr. Nelson succeeds in explaining difficult concepts in words and then presents the mathematics in a clear way. -- Daniel Kim-Shapiro, Physics Department, Wake Forest University

He is an excellent writer, being both entertaining and clear. -- Fred MacKintosh, Department of Physics, Princeton University

Overall I found the choise of topics to be quite interesting and appropriate, and the presentation of the material attractive. -- Steve Hagen, University of Florida

The proposed book by Nelson will fill a clear need. Discussion revolves around central ideas, which are developed clearly. -- William Parke, Physics Department, George Washington University
