Life is produced by the interplay of water and biomolecules. This book deals with the physicochemical aspects of such life phenomena produced by water and biomolecules, and addresses topics including "Protein Dynamics and Functions", "Protein and DNA Folding", and "Protein Amyloidosis". All sections have been written by internationally recognized front-line researchers. The idea for this book was born at the 5th International Symposium "Water and Biomolecules", held in Nara city, Japan, in 2008.

From the reviews:"The book covers the physical chemistry of biological processes that involve the joint action of biomolecules and water ... . the book contains some very interesting and well-written contributions to the physical chemistry of life processes that I can recommend to researchers working in this field. Some chapters also present extremely well-written overviews that would be interesting to read also for non-specialists. ... this volume contains a pronounced variety of contributions both in their subject matter as well as the quality of presentation."--- (Rudolf Podgornik, Journal of Biological Physics, Vol. 36, April, 2010)
