Just Arrived: Special Issue on Biophysics

Just Arrived: Special Issue on BiophysicsChemPhysChem is proud to present its special issue on biophysics. It contains Concept-type articles from leading international experts in this dynamic and flourishing field on the most exciting crossroads of chemistry, biology and physics. It was produced under the editorial coordination of Prof. Erich Sackmann (Munich). This discipline will no doubt be one of the jewels of 21st-century research.
