Manuscript Topics

The study of complex systems of biophysical interest is becoming more and more prominent. As a rule a complex system is supposed to present a collective behavior out of the interaction of their constitutive parts. It means that the whole is more than the sum of its parts. The field is inherently interdisciplinary, drawing from physics, chemistry, biology, mathematics, computer science and many other fields. Each field has their own techniques, tools, definitions, terminology, methods as well as particular ways of asking and answering questions. In some cases, these fields are aligned, in other cases there can be contradictions and misunderstandings. The main goal of this special issue is to present some of the most recent interdisciplinary approaches for the structural and dynamical characterization of complex systems of biophysical interest, such as proteins, enzymes, antioxidants, micelles, microemulsions and aqueous solutions. The collected papers should be addressed to the understanding of the molecular mechanisms involved in biological processes, such as bioprotection and stabilization of proteins through an interdisciplinary approach based on the employment of spectroscopic techniques, such as Photon Correlation Spectroscopy, Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy, Raman Spectroscopy, Brillouin Scattering, Neutron Scattering, Synchrotron Radiation, Differential Scanning Calorimetry, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, ultrasonic and thermodynamic techniques, etc....
