ChemPhysChem Special Issue on Biophysics Now Online
After the ChemPhysChem special commemorative issue published in January this year –with 32 excellent papers by our board members– we now continue our 10th volume celebrations with a double issue on biophysics. We have collected 48 contributions from top scientists in the field. A selected mixture of reviews, minireviews, articles, communications, and conference reports provides an excellent overview of the latest advances in biophysics.
In their minireview, cover authors Gerd U. Nienhaus and Jörg Wiedenmann discuss interesting aspects of the structure and dynamics of fluorescent proteins and the rational engineering of advanced fluorescence markers (see picture, left). Andreas Ebner and co-workers (inside cover) present their recent results on the immobilization of native nuclear membranes for single-molecule force spectroscopy (see picture, right).
In a comprehensive and didactic review, Sebastian Schlücker writes about surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) microscopy and its biomedical applications, whereas Isabella Felli gives an excellent overview of the most recent advances in solution NMR spectroscopy.
These examples provide a real flavor of the scope of our special issue, but there's much more to read – with interesting articles by Chad Mirkin, Christian Amatore and many other excellent researchers. Don't miss the special issue. Browse through it now
