BIOLOGICAL PHYSICS

In Biological Physics one studies phenomena on the borderline between physics and biology.

Where as physics uses mathematics to represent the laws of nature, biology has traditionally relied, to a large extent, on words and diagrams to describe the functions of living things. This has changed with the recent years' development in high-throughput and single molecule techniques, which has turned the biological science into a quantitative field.

Physicists play a major role in this emerging field of science, bringing a strong background in theory and the modelling of complexity.
