How proteins protonate/deprotonate their amino acids to regulate electric charge under different conditions and enhance adsorption
Towards a unifying description of material properties and interfacial growth in semiflexible filament networks.
This weeks image comes from a paper by Shoichi Tanimoto et al who use molecular dynamics the 3D reference interaction site model (3D-RISM) method to examine the ion dependancy of carbohydrate binding in the carbohydrate-binding module family 36 (CBM36).
Novel physics-based experimental techniques and concepts from statistical mechanics may help understand why living cells use up precious energy to constantly ‘jiggle’ and ‘twitch’ their membranes.
Cold plasma discharges as a powerful tool for future space exploration missions?
This week, our Image of the Week comes from a recent Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics Topical Review studying the state-of-the-art techniques which are transforming the understanding of mRNA in living cells. Organic dyes and fluorescent proteins are used… Read More ›
New research from Paul Bressloff at the University of Utah looking at the aggregation–fragmentation model of vesicular transport in neurons.
For researchers working at the interface of biophysics and cell biology, cell membranes have attracting increasing attention. These membranes don’t just define the boundaries of the cell and its compartments; their role is crucial in a range of processes such as… Read More ›
Conferences are a fantastic opportunity for our editors to engage with the community and hear about leading research first hand.
Professor Marcus Müller and Dr Yuliya Smirnova from Georg-August-Universität Göttingen spoke to us about their research and their predictions for the direction of the field.
Looking at some of the most downloaded content across the JPhys series of journals.
When not at conferences or doing peer-review, we too like to keep-up-to date with interesting science. Plus it’s an excuse to surf the web at work! Here’s what we’ve been reading and talking about recently.
A dedicated publishing venue to those researchers working in the interdisciplinary field connecting biology and biochemistry with the underlying physical and mathematical models.
Overcoming the diffraction limit in optical microscopy has been a major barrier in obtaining high-resolution images in biophysical and biomedical research. Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics (JPhysD) have just published “The 2015 super-resolution microscopy roadmap”, discussing how researchers have developed super-resolution microscopy to overcome this limit.
JPhysB has begun publishing Frontiers of Free-Electron Laser Science II. Click the title to find out more.
