Biophysics is the application of the principles of physics (the science that deals with matter and energy) to explain and explore the form and function of living things.
The most familiar examples of the role of physics in biology are the use of lenses to correct visual defects and the use of x-rays to reveal the structure of bones.
Biophysics is an interdependent science discipline that employs unique methods of physics and physical chemistry to acquire knowledge on the biological systems present in our world.
It applies the principles of physics and chemistry and the methods of mathematical analysis and computer modeling to understand how biological systems work.
Biophysics explains biological function in terms of the molecular structures and their properties.
