    Nanoscale microscopy for cancer detection

    Nanoscale changes to the structure of cancer cells can now be detected by a combination of two optical microscopy techniques, providing an earlier and potentially more accurate method of identifying carcinogenesis.

    Induced fit for LSD1/CoREST and H3-histone

    An induced-fit model is the most representative of LSD1/CoREST-H3-histone non-covalent binding when compared to lock and key and conformational selection models, which has important implications for drug discovery and design of this important epigenetic target.

    Coordinated behavior of molecular motors

    A novel probabilistic approach to study the behavior of motor-proteins coordinating the transfer of a shared cargo makes it possible to detect rare events in motor protein dynamics that might pass undetected using standard simulation methods.

BMC Biophysics is an open access journal publishing original peer-reviewed research articles in experimental and theoretical aspects of biological processes from the microscopic to macroscopic level, including thermodynamics, structural stability and dynamics, molecular biophysics, signalling, novel biophysical methods and computational biophysics.

It is journal policy to publish work deemed by peer reviewers to be a coherent and sound addition to scientific knowledge and to put less emphasis on interest levels, provided that the research constitutes a useful contribution to the field.
