  • Quantum biology
    Quantum biology refers to applications of quantum mechanics and theoretical chemistry to biological objects and problems.
  • Biorhythm
    A biorhythm (from Greek βίος - bios, "life" and ῥυθμός - rhuthmos, "any regular recurring motion, rhythm") is an attempt to predict various aspects of a person's life through simple mathematical cycles.
  • Osmosis
    Osmosis is the spontaneous net movement of solvent molecules through a semi-permeable membrane into a region of higher solute concentration, in the direction that tends to equalize the solute concentrations on the two sides.
  • Specific absorption rate
    Specific absorption rate (SAR) is a measure of the rate at which energy is absorbed by the human body when exposed to a radio frequency (RF) electromagnetic field; although, it can also refer to absorption of other forms of energy by tissue, including ultrasound.
  • Lotka–Volterra equations
    The Lotka–Volterra equations, also known as the predator–prey equations, are a pair of first-order, non-linear, differential equations frequently used to describe the dynamics of biological systems in which two species interact, one as a predator and the other as prey.
  • Transcription factor
    In molecular biology and genetics, a transcription factor (sometimes called a sequence-specific DNA-binding factor) is a protein that binds to specific DNA sequences, thereby controlling the rate of transcription of genetic information from DNA to messenger RNA.
  • Biological neuron model
    A biological neuron model, also known as a spiking neuron model, is a mathematical model of the electrical properties of neuronal action potentials, which are sharp changes in the electrical potential across the cell membrane that last for about one millisecond.
  • Bioenergetics
    Bioenergetics is a field in biochemistry and cell biology that concerns [energy] flow through living systems.
  • Nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy of proteins
    Nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy of proteins (usually abbreviated protein NMR) is a field of structural biology in which NMR spectroscopy is used to obtain information about the structure and dynamics of proteins, and also nucleic acids, and their complexes.
  • Max Planck Institute of Biophysics
    The Max Planck Institute of Biophysics (German: Max-Planck-Institut für Biophysik) is located in Frankfurt am Main, Germany.
  • GHK flux equation
    The Goldman–Hodgkin–Katz flux equation (or GHK flux equation or GHK current density equation) describes the ionic flux across a cell membrane as a function of the transmembrane potential and the concentrations of the ion inside and outside of the cell.
  • Biophysical chemistry
    Biophysical chemistry is a physical science that uses the concepts of physics and physical chemistry for the study of biological systems.
  • Quasinormal mode
    Quasinormal modes (QNM) are the modes of energy dissipation of a perturbed object or field, i.
