The pH profile of pathological tissues, such as upon acquisition of inflammation, infection, and cancer, is significantly different from that of the normal tissue. Also cellular components such as the cytoplasm, endosomes, lysosomes, endoplasmic reticulum, etc. are known to maintain their own characteristic pH values. For example, the pathway of the gene-vector complex is accompanied with the...

Current research in membrane protein biophysics highlights the emerging role of lipids in shaping membrane protein function. Cells and organisms have developed sophisticated mechanisms for controlling the lipid composition and many diseases are related to the failure of these mechanisms. One of the recent advances in the field is the discovery of the existence of coexisting micro-domains...

In biology one of the greatest scientific challenge comes from the need to study and model extremely complex systems that are constantly evolving at different time and length scales, particularly in a way that is computationally affordable. Even just a slightly improved ability to predict the fait of biological processes in time and/or space would have a tremendous impact on many areas of life...
