    New label to monitor nucleic acid movement

    A rigid spin label that covalently attaches to the backbone of nucleic acid provides a nucleotide-free way of labeling DNA/RNA and investigating their folding and dynamics.

    Correcting single-molecule sample drift

    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.

    Protein filaments as fences

    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.

Scope

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.
