About this book

Introduction

HANDBOOK OF MODERN BIOPHYSICS Series Editor Thomas Jue, PhD Handbook of Modern Biophysics brings current biophysics topics into focus, so that biol-ogy, medical, engineering, mathematics, and physical-science students or researchers can learn fun¬damental concepts and the application of new techniques in addressing biomedical challenges. Chapters explicate the conceptual framework of the physics formalism and illustrate the biomedical applica¬tions. With the addition of problem sets, guides to further study, and references, the interested reader can continue to independently explore the ideas presented. Volume III: Biomedical Applications of Biophysics Editor: Thomas Jue, PhD In Biomedical Applications of Biophysics, leading scholars present key topics pertinent to biomedical research: • Protein Structure Prediction • Molecular Modeling of Biomembranes: A How-To Approach • Introduction to Electron Paramagnetic Resonance Spectroscopy • Theory and Applications of Biomolecular NMR Spectroscopy • FRET and Its Biological Application as a Molecular Ruler • Introduction to Modern Techniques of Mass Spectrometry • Transmission Electron Microscopy And Computer-Aided Image Processing For 3d Structural Analysis Of Macromolecules • Raman Spectroscopy of Living Cells About the Editor Thomas Jue is a Professor in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Medicine at the University of California Davis. He is an internationally recognized expert in develop-ing and applying magnetic resonance techniques to study animal as well as human physi-ology in vivo and has published extensively in the field of magnetic resonance spectroscopy and imaging, near-infrared spectroscopy, bioenergetics, cardiovascular regu-lation, exercise, and marine biology. As the Chair of the Biophysics Graduate Group Program at University of California Davis, he launched an initiative to establish a biophysics book series that will balance the physical-science/mathematics formalism with the biomedical perspective in order to develop an attractive education curriculum at the interface of physical science, engineering, mathematics, biology, and medicine. The Handbook of Modern Biophysics represents part of that curriculum development effort.
