Soft Matter 2012 Reviews in Biophysics

Soft Matter welcomes submissions on the biophysics of soft matter systems, for example:

•    Membranes and lipid bilayers
•    Biomimetic materials
•    Cell mechanics and adhesion
•    Self-assembly of biomacromolecules
•    DNA and protein dynamics and folding
•    Buckling/jamming of cell layers and tissues
•    Physics of drug delivery systems
•    Flagella and motility

Also, see our recently published themed issue on ‘Polyelectrolytes in biology and soft matter‘, with guest editors Michael Rubinstein and Garegin Papoian.
