NAME

Molecular biophysics

DESCRIPTION

Molecular biophysics is the study of the physical principles governing biomolecular systems. It seeks to explain biological function in terms of molecular structure, dynamics and organization, from single molecules to supramolecular structures.

76 skos:definition Molecular conformation is any spatial arrangement of the atoms in a molecule which can be interconverted by rotations about formally single bonds. Biopolymers, such as polynucleotides, polypeptides or polysaccharides, may change conformation in response to changes in their environment.

85 skos:definition Perturbation theory is a set of mathematical methods for approximating the solution to a problem that cannot be solved exactly, using an iterative algorithm based on the exact solution of a related problem.

93 skos:definition Supramolecular assembly is the formation of a well-defined complex of molecules held together by noncovalent bonds. It is usually used to describe large groups of molecules that form sphere-, rod- or sheet-like species.

104 skos:definition Thermodynamics is the mathematical analysis of energy relationships. It is a scientific discipline concerned with heat and temperature and their relation to energy and work. It deals with the bulk macroscopic properties of a system, rather than those of the microscopic constituents.
