    Mathematical modeling of cell signaling events

    A non-standard model of molecular diffusion simulates diffusion rates of cytoplasmic and intercellular signaling molecule, and demonstrates a notable influence of cellular shape on molecular diffusion rate.

    Improving methods to study biomolecular complexes

    Covalently anchoring DNA provides a novel strategy to study mechanical forces of biomolecular complexes that is efficient, adaptable to multiple experimental conditions, and less toxic than previous 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.

BMC Biophysics is part of the BMC series which publishes subject-specific journals focused on the needs of individual research communities across all areas of biology and medicine. We offer an efficient, fair and friendly peer review service, and are committed to publishing all sound science, provided that there is some advance in knowledge presented by the work.

BMC series - open, inclusive and trusted.
