Frontiers in Physicochemical Biology documents the proceedings of an international symposium held in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Institut de Biologie Physico-Chimique, (Fondation Edmond de Rothschild) in Paris, May 23-27, 1977. The symposium was organized to cover the main topics of modern day molecular biology and biophysics, which are also the major disciplines researched at the Institute.
The contributions made by researchers at the symposium are organized into four parts. Part I contains papers on the physical chemistry of fundamental biomolecules. Part II presents studies on physicochemical aspects of the mechanisms of genetic expression. Part III examines the biochemistry of oxygen and hemoglobin. Part IV deals with the study of organized systems.
