A new metric based on distance between molecules seeks to solve the sample drift correction required by super-resolution microscopy, using the position information of molecules to estimate frame drift.
Simulation models of the the pooling of phospholipid PIP2 show that protein filaments must consist of multiple rows or be buried below the surface of the membrane to act as effective molecular fences.
To simulate biophysical interactions in the cell, various particle-based reaction-diffusion software packages are available, all with differing degrees of sophistication, computational cost and utility in answering biological questions.
An efficient analytical model can quantifiably assess the contributions of the various active and passive processes that drive unequal segregation of different macromolecules, organelles and complexes during cell division in yeast.
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.
