Biophysical Society—IOP series

The Biophysical Society and IOP Publishing’s partnership brings the world-leading expertise of the Biophysical Society to the IOP ebooks program.

The program features textbooks, research monographs and handbooks covering all areas of biophysical research, applications, education, methods, computational tools, and techniques. Topics include bioenergetics; bioengineering; biological fluorescence; biopolymers in vivo; cryo-electron microscopy; exocytosis and endocytosis; intrinsically disordered proteins; mechanobiology; membrane biophysics; membrane structure and assembly; molecular biophysics; motility and cytoskeleton; nanoscale biophysics; and permeation and transport.
