Fluorescence is one of the few methods that allow one to observe interactions between very low concentrations of biological species in real time. Fluorescence can measure parameters such as the diffusion of a protein, its movement through a cell or other medium, and its association with other biological molecules. The purpose of the Biological Fluorescence Subgroup is to share insight into fluorescence-based methods and analysis. Fluorescence methods are very versatile and can be applied to simple molecules in water to complex species in living cells. Subgroup discussions highlight these diverse systems as well as the different methods to best understand them. The fluorescence Subgroup meets once a year at the beginning of the Biophysical Society Annual Meeting. The Subgroup meeting usually highlights a particular fluorescence method giving the history of the method and its use and application. Speakers include established investigators and junior scientists. Additionally, two students are selected to give short, 10-minute talks about their thesis research. These students are selected from the SRAA applicants. The meeting will also honor the winners of the Gregorio Weber Award and the Young Fluorescence Award.

2023 Biopolymers in vivo Subgroup

2023 Biopolymers in vivo Subgroup

sku Product SKU:  DUES-BIOPOLYMER-2023

The purpose of this Subgroup is to create a forum to discuss biophysical properties and function of biomolecules in cells and cell-like conditions, and to develop experimental and computational approaches to study these phenomena. The Subgroup invites participants from all scientific disciplines with an interest in broadening our understanding of biophysical processes in cells, using approaches ranging from biophysical studies of biomolecules in vitro and in silico to experiments performed in living cells and beyond. We believe that this is a timely and emerging field of high importance for all aspects of biophysics.

Although biopolymers such as proteins and nucleic acids are the workhorses of the cell, our knowledge about how they behave in cells is limited. One reason for this shortcoming is that the microenvironments inside cells and in cell membranes (and in extracellular spaces of multi-cellular organisms) are extremely complex, with macromolecules together occupying as much as 40% of volume but with the composition of macromolecules highly heterogeneous and constantly changing.

The name of this Subgroup, "Biopolymers in vivo," was voted and approved at the 2011 BPS Meeting. We will continue to host a business meeting, host a Subgroup dinner, administer the BIV Young Faculty award, and organize a symposium on the Saturday before the Annual Meeting of the Biophysical Society. Everyone is encouraged to become a member of this Subgroup and to attend the Subgroup’s Saturday events.
