This work not only addresses the needs of biologists and biochemists but also contains material for a one-semester course offered to Masters students of life sciences. It covers a range of topics from quantum mechanics to pre-biotic evolution, and refreshes the reader's knowledge of physics and chemistry. It covers various physico-chemical techniques used to study biomolecular structures, and discusses spectroscopy, microscopy, diffraction and computational techniques.
