The major areas of modern biophysics are represented in the Program, principally in the molecular basis of macromolecular function including computational biology, single molecule analysis, and structural biology. The quantitative relationship between molecular properties and higher-level cell and tissue properties, and research in emerging areas of quantitative cell and organ biology, are also well represented. Methodologies include single-molecule analysis, x-ray diffraction, electron microscopy, NMR and other spectroscopic methods, and computation.Outstanding facilities are available within research groups, as well as major facilities including the Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Laborator, the Stanford Magnetic Resonance laboratory featuring an 800 MHz spectrometer, and the Lucas center for MRI imaging.
