The book is based on lectures presented on the International Summer School on Biophysics held in Croatia in September 2009. The advantage of the School is that it provides advanced training in very broad scope of areas related to biophysics contrary to other similar schools or workshops that are centered mainly on one topic or technique. In this volume, tenth in the row, the papers in the field of biophysics are presented. The topics are biological phenomena from single protein to macromolecular aggregations structure by using variant physical methods (NMR, EPR, FTIR, Mass Spectrometry, etc.). The interrelationship of supramolecular structures and their functions is enlightened by applications of principals of these physical methods in the biophysical and molecular biology context.

This book is the proceedings of the 7th International Summer School on Biophysics: Supramolecular Structure and Function, held September 14-26, 2000, in Rovinj, Croatia. An enormous amount of new knowledge on the molecular basis of biological phenomena has emerged in the rapidly expanding field of biophysics. The principles and methods of modern biophysics now provide a strong foundation for all of the biosciences, and serve as a rational common language for scientists from various disciplines. The series of books on Supramolecular Structure and Function was inspired by the International Summer School on Biophysics, established under the sponsorship of IUPAB, UNESCO, and ICGEB, held in Rovinj, in 2001, and follows the successful interdisciplinary approach. This volume covers some powerful methods, such as analytical centrifugation, mass spectrometry, fluorescence spectroscopy, infrared spectroscopy, electron spin resonance and nuclear magnetic resonance, for the study of complex biological structures, and discusses useful physical concepts as applied to biological and biochemical systems. Case-orientated studies concentrating on particular methodologies are presented and examples are given, addressing some of the most important aspects of structure-function relationship in biological assemblies. Biophysics nowadays collaborates closely with molecular biology and bioinformatics as well as with neurosciences, and this is also demonstrated in this book. The book should be of interest both to experienced researchers wishing to widen their insight into molecular structure and function, and to younger scientists at the doctoral and postdoctoral level interested in the molecular nature of fundamental biological entities and phenomena.

During the past decade we have witnessed not only an increase in knowledge of the "traditional" biophysical problems, but also an understanding of the molecular basis of various biological phenomena. The principles and methods of biophysics now provide an underpin ning of all of the basic biosciences and are the rational language for discussion between scientists of different disciplines. The International School on Biophysics Supramolecular Structure and Function held in Dubrovnik in September 1984 had as its goal to provide comprehensive discussions on a large number of subjects both for younger scientists at the doctoral or postdoctoral level interested in the molecular nature of fundamental biological entities, and for experienced scientists wishing to gain a broader insight into molecular structures and functions. The topics discussed at the School were inter- and intramolecular interactions in biological systems, and the structure, organization, and function of biological macromolecules and supramolecular assemblies. A number of topics were centered around either a biological problem or a physical technique, sometimes giving an unbalanced view of the field under discussion. Some of the topics required previous knowledge of basic biophysical principles, which were then applied to gain greater insight into the molecular functions of diverse supramolecular systems. Although not all the lectures could be prepared for publication in this volume, I hope that it contains valuable up-to-date information on various aspects of the molecular basis of life.

An enormous amount of new knowledge on the molecular basis of various biological phenomena has emerged in the rapidly expanding field of bioscience. Since the frontiers in scientific research are difficult to define‚ the creation of new knowledge depends not only on new methods and concepts but also on interaction with other fields of research. The principles and methods of biophysics should be a rational language for discussion not only between scientists of the different disciplines of natural sciences‚ such as physics‚ mathematics‚ biochemistry‚ molecular biology and biotechnology‚ but also for medicine and social sciences as well. This is the general philosophy behind the organization of the Summer Schools organized by Rudjer Institute‚ Zagreb‚ Croatia and the Croatian Biophysical Society. The International Summer Schools on Biophysics have a very broad scope. This is in contrast to the other workshops or schools which are centred mainly on one topic or technique. The intention was to organize courses which provided advanced training at doctoral or postdoctoral level in biosciences. Therefore‚ the Schools essentially have a catalytic role and are complementary to‚ rather than competing with‚ activities of parallel national or international programmes.

Supramolecular chemistry enables the self-assembly of molecules into well-defined objects on the nanoscale through non-covalent interactions. Molecular ordering within nanostructures affects the form and function of these materials at a scale inaccessible to conventional synthetic or lithographic techniques. Here, we explore the dendron rod-coil family of self-assembling molecules. Molecules in this family assemble in organic solvents into ribbon-like nanostructures with high aspect ratios. Synthetic modifications to the molecular structure of dendron rod-coils impact the supramolecular structure and function of these nanomaterials. We explore three sets of dendron rod-coil molecules with different modifications to the rod and coil portion of the molecule. Dendron rod-coil molecules synthesized with organic semiconducting blocks show enhanced conduction upon self-assembly due to increased ordering in their aggregated state. The ribbon-like nanostructures can be aligned in electric fields, and have implications in the bottom-up fabrication of organic electronic devices. Dendron rod-coil molecules synthesized with enantiomerically enriched coils self-assemble into chiral supramolecular nanostructures. The formation of chiral supramolecular structures is found to be highly solvent dependent, decoupling molecular and supramolecular chirality. The well-defined helical nanostructures are characterized in bulk and on the nanoscale by circular dichroism spectroscopy and atomic force microscopy, respectively. Experiments indicate that both R and S configurations of the molecules readily mix in a given nanostructure such that the helical sense is determined by the stereochemistry of the majority component. The association of inorganic precursors with the chiral nanostructures enables the templated mineralization of inorganic mineral. The fabrication of chiral supramolecular objects on the appropriate scale has implications in catalysis, biorecognition and electronics. Finally, dendron rod-coil molecules were synthesized incorporating polymerizable groups for the post-modification of assembled dendron rod-coil nanostructures. The polymerizable groups have the potential to impart solvent and thermal stability in addition to electronic function to the self-assembled nanostructure. The exploration of the three sets of dendron rod-coil molecules has furthered our understanding of self-assembly in dendron rod-coil compounds, showing their remarkable tolerance to changes in molecular structure. By tuning the molecular structure and solvent environment, we have been able to show precise control over the form and function of these supramolecular structures on the nanometer scale.
