5th International Workshop Quantum Effects in Biological Systems (QuEBS)


16 Jan 2013
5th QuEBS

The counterintuitive features of quantum physics have already revolutionized our understanding of how the world behaves on the microscopic level. But are there any non-trivial consequences of quantum effects that have a functional relevance for biology?

Our workshop is the fifth international conference of the series Quantum Effects in Biological Systems (QuEBS) and focuses on recent and emerging biological systems that have shown quantum effects as well as quantum techniques that are expected to aid biological research. The meeting will bring together the leading scientist in biology, biochemistry and quantum physics. This year the meeting will be held for the first time at a biology campus. Thereby we intend to further engage the biology community and to foster more cross-disciplinary interactions.
