Provides an introduction to the structure and function of biomolecules --- especially proteins --- and the physical tools used to investigate them
The discussion concentrates on physical tools and properties, emphasizing techniques that are contributing to new developments and avoiding those that are already well established and whose results have already been exploited fully
New tools appear regularly - synchrotron radiation, proton radiology, holography, optical tweezers, and muon radiography, for example, have all been used to open new areas of understanding

Autorenporträt
A leader in physics research for more than half a century, Hans Frauenfelder spent 40 years as a professor and researcher at the University of Illinois before moving on to Los Alamos Laboratory, where he was the director of the Center for Nonlinear Studies and is now a Laboratory Fellow. Frauenfelder has been elected to the National Academy of Sciences, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the Academy Leopoldina and the American Philosophical Society. He also is the recipient of numerous prestigious scientific fellowships and honors.
Rezensionen
From the reviews:
"It appears to be written for advanced undergraduates and graduates in physics who are newcomers to biophysics and biochemistry. ... The book builds from Frauenfelder's sketches and hand-drawn diagrams, which impart to the volume a personal touch, to its major theme: Frauenfelder's insight that protein structures undergo conformational transitions - proteinquakes - through sub-states of approximately equal energy in a rugged, multi-dimensional, conformational-energy landscape." (H. Richard Leuchtag, Physics Today, May, 2011)
