Meeting Bio-Physicist – William Bialek with some Glimpse of Biophysics – [4th Jan 2016]

Spread the love

Whatever we see in this universe, everything is interconnected with Physical laws, they have Physical existence and physical significance in detail. I was fortunate enough to meet the legendary Bio-Physicist Wiliam Bialek, in the International center for theoretical science. Bangalore. I asked few doubts about Physics and its Interdisciplinary sciences they have worked. especially Biology and physics. Please find his lecture link below. excellent lecture ever heard about bio-physics. thank you ICTS for a wonderful lecture, and also I thank William Bialek an honorary physicist for wonderful session.

Some things about Bio-Physics

How we can Classify Bio-Physics?

Astro-biophysics It’s the of the field of connection between astrophysics and biophysics concerned with the influence of the Astrophysical phenomena upon life on planet Earth or some other planet in general. also, is concerned with the result of astrophysical procedures on life on Earth, as well as effects on likely life in any part of this universe.

Molecular Biophysics interdisciplinary field that applies methods and concepts from physics, chemistry, engineering, mathematics, and biology to comprehend biomolecular schemes and explain biological function in terms of molecular structure, structural organization, and dynamic behavior at various levels of complexity, from single molecules to supramolecular structures, viruses, and small living systems.

Medical biophysics an interdisciplinary field that applies approaches and concepts from physics to medicine or healthcare, ranging from radiology to microscopy and nanomedicine. See also, medical physics.

Clinical biophysics studies the procedure and effects of non-ionizing physical energies utilized for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes.

What is its application area?

biomolecular scale
Organismal scale
Environmental scale

Biophysics research has its research areas in Biochemistry, Bioengineering, Nanotechnology

DATES: Monday 04 Jan 2016 – Thursday 07 Jan 2016,

VENUE: ICTS campus, Bangalore

from the level of networks of genes and proteins to the embryonic and neural levels, information at various scales drives biological self-organization.
Living systems process this information to an astonishing degree of accuracy and generate the complex patterns of life. Physicists, mathematicians, engineers, and biologists are collaborating extensively to unravel the role of information in biological processes. This discussion meeting aims to focus on recent advances in the general principles of information processing and self-organization in living systems.

    1. yes, I believe.If the primordial chemical evolution of life on earth was true, then surely it is true everywhere. but chemical composition or evolution ingredients I can say, on every planet, might vary and resulting Biological evolution can be possible..astrophysical phenomenon is a basic thing which happens in every part of the universe, but life or genesis likely to happen only on earth like planets.Moreover, it’s obvious we have 10 power 11 galaxies, Just imagine. How many planets we might come across which is like earth and follow Astro biophysics for the genesis of creatures. [animals, plants, human, intelligent being].

      1. Hmm…possible.. In fact it’s an area which always attracted me . the mysterious universe…the recent radio waves should be from some other planet, I wish…

  1. we have highly sophisticated radio – telescopes, yes that might be from planet, planets have tendency to emit radio waves ( which is actually a light / energy transmitted in radio range of electromagnet spectrum).. which show significant information of life on other part of universe. yes it’s mysterious as you say.. but key to unlock has been a overwhelmingly tried by humans.
    glad you like these topics… you too write some of your thoughts and post it…
    keep visiting 🙂 🙂 🙂
