The program to Biology of the methodologies built in Physics is attracting an expanding curiosity from the medical group. It has resulted in the emergence of a brand new interdisciplinary box, known as actual Biology, with the purpose of attaining a greater figuring out of the organic mechanisms at molecular and mobile degrees. Statistical Mechanics specifically performs a major position within the improvement of this new field.

For this cause, the XXth consultation of the recognized Sitges convention on Statistical Physics was once devoted to "Physical Biology: from Molecular Interactions to mobile Behavior". As is by way of now culture, a few lectures have been for that reason chosen, elevated and up to date for e-book as lecture notes, that allows you to offer either a state of the art advent and evaluation to a couple of matters of broader curiosity and to prefer the interchange and cross-fertilization of principles among biologists and physicists.

The current quantity makes a speciality of 3 major subtopics (biological water, protein recommendations in addition to shipping and replication), proposing for every of the them the on-going debates on contemporary effects. The position of water in organic strategies, the mechanisms of protein folding, the stages and cooperative results in organic ideas, the thermodynamic description of replication, shipping and neural task, all are topics which are revised during this quantity, in line with new experiments and new theoretical interpretations.

The solvent level is for all three samples h = 2 and the water fractions in the solvent are 20, 33 and 50 wt%, as given in the figures. The symbols correspond most likely to fast local motions of single water molecules (crosses), the dominating relaxation process of the solvent (filled circles), motions of polar side groups (filled squares) and conformational protein fluctuations (filled triangles). The origin of the two latter processes as well as the remaining processes (denoted by open squares) are not fully clear (see text), but in the sample with 50 wt% water the fastest of them (observed at low temperatures) should represent some kind of local non-cooperative motions in the protein – 36 J.
