Biophysics is an interdisciplinary science that applies the approaches and methods of physics to study biological systems. Biophysics covers all scales of biological organization, from molecular to organismic and populations.

Daniel Fisher | Physicists and Evolution Puzzles and Expectations

To most physicists, almost everything about evolution is puzzling.  What determines how much complexity can — and has — evolved?  Why is there so much biological diversity on all scales of differences?   How could evolution select for future “evolvability”?  Why doesn’t evolution get slower and slower?  One of the roles of theory is to frame questions — or at least limited versions of them — more precisely.
