Physical Biology of the Cell, Second Edition
Welcome to the Student & Instructor Resource Website for Physical Biology of the Cell!
This website provides electronic resources for teaching and additional study. We hope these resources will help the reader explore
the interface between biology and physics in a detailed way that
directly complements the text. The following resources are available:
The original data used to create both the figures and homework
problems are available. With this data, the
reader can extend the theoretical tools developed in the book to fit
experimental data for a wide range of problems. The data files contain
explicit statement of all relevant units, and include references to the
||We have provided both hints and strategies for attacking some
of the more difficult end-of-chapter problems. In some cases, the
hints provide intuition about how to set up the problem; in other cases,
the hints provide explicit mathematical instructions on how to carry
through more tricky manipulations.
The Computational Exploration sidebars in the book feature simple computer analyses to solve problems that would otherwise be inaccessible. Matlab and Mathematica code related to most of the Computational Explorations is provided here for further computation, visualization, and analysis. For a selection of figures and end-of-chapter problems, many algebraic steps were performed or confirmed with a very powerful computational tool known as Mathematica. In addition, we have often used Mathematica to construct figures, such as the vector fields associated with phase portraits.
||The PowerPoint presentations contain the figures and micrographs from the book. There is one presentation for each chapter.
||This archive contains the figures and micrographs from the book in JPEG format. It is organized by chapter.
videos complement the figures and discussion from the book by
illustrating the rich dynamics exhibited by living organisms and the
molecules that make them tick.
