A biological physics text for a multidisciplinary audience, exploring the architectural structure of the cell.


A textbook for a one-semester course for senior undergraduates and beginning graduates with an interest in biophysics. Appendices summarize background material in physics and in biology for students coming from the other direction. The focus is on equilibrium properties of cells, with little discussion of their dynamics. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
