Frontiers of Biological Energetics, Volume I: Electrons to Tissues consists of papers presented at the 1978 International Symposium on ""Frontiers of Biological Energetics: Electrons to Tissues,"" held at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, on the occasion of the 65th birthday of Professor Britton Chance and of the 50th anniversary of the Johnson Research Foundation. The symposium aims to bring together scientists from many different disciplines to discuss the common problems of biological energetic from different standpoints and from various levels of cellular organization. Organized into three parts, the book begins with a discussion on the electrochemical interactions. It then continues to describe the electrons, protons, and energy. Lastly, the book presents new instrumental approaches to cellular biophysics.
