Summary

Written to be accessible both to biologists and physicists, major stages and components of biological development are introduced and then analyzed from the viewpoint of physics. The presentation of physical models requires no mathematics beyond basic calculus. With full-color figures throughout, this comprehensive textbook teaches biophysics by application to developmental biology, and is suitable for undergraduate and graduate courses in physics and biology.
