The Physical Microbe: An Introduction to Noise, Control, and Communication in the Prokaryotic Cell (Paperback)Stephen J. Hagen (author)
- We can order this
This book narrows down the scope of physical biology by focusing on the microbial cell. It explores the physical phenomena of noise, feedback, and variability that arise in the cellular information-processing circuits used by bacteria. It looks at the microbe from a physics perspective, to ask how the cell optimizes its function to live within the constraints of physics. It introduces a physical and information based - as opposed to microbiological - perspective on communication and signaling between microbes.
The book is aimed at non-expert scientists who wish to understand some of the most important emerging themes of physical biology, and to see how they help us to understand the most basic forms of life.
