Abstract

Some biological questions are tough to solve through standard molecular and cell biological methods and naturally lend themselves to investigation by physical approaches. Below, a group of formally trained physicists discuss, among other things, how they apply physics to address biological questions and how physical approaches complement conventional biological approaches.
