Single-Molecule Cellular Biophysics
Author(s): Barry R. Masters

Paper Abstract

Research on single-molecule cellular biophysics is an emerging field that is rapidly advancing based on the development of new instrumentation and experimental designs. To understand complex biological systems, researchers require instrumentation and techniques that span many orders of scale. The measured units include length, force, energy, time, and concentration and the validation of measurements for both in vivo and in vitro studies, as well as the limitations of the techniques and an understanding of the perturbations that the techniques induce in the experimental systems.
