Nanobiophysics is a new branch of science that operates at the interface of physics, biology, chemistry, material science, nanotechnology, and medicine. This book is the first one devoted to nanobiophysics and introduces this field with a focus on some selected topics related to the physics of biomolecular nanosystems, including nucleosomal DNA and model lipid membranes, nanobiohybrids involving DNA/RNA and single-walled carbon nanotubes, biomolecules deposited on nanoparticles, and nanostructured surfaces. It describes unique experimental physical methods that are used to study nanosized biostructures. It outlines the applied aspects of nanobiophysics, considering the state of art in the fabrication of two types of sensors: gas sensors, with a focus on breath gas detection, and nanophotonic sensors, with a focus on polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon detection in water samples. It also covers the development of nanoscale scaffolds for delivery of therapeutic nucleic acids to cells, which is an important example of the possible application of nanobiophysics researches in nanomedicine.

Editorial Reviews

"Nanoscale materials, their physical and chemical properties, and even their biological effects have emerged as a new major branch of science. Interdisciplinary fields are always intriguing and exciting but also difficult to master. This book is an important contribution by an excellent group of scientists who came together to discuss the most relevant aspects of nanoscale materials from the standpoint of biophysics. It summarizes the new findings and developments in the field. The book is a valuable read for newcomers in the field, specialists in other aspects of nanomaterials, and scientists already working in nanobiophysics."¿ Prof. K¿ly V¿y, Research Centre for Natural Sciences, Hungary
