Computational biology and nanotechnology have become critical elements in particle interactions, especially in biological sciences, medicine, toxicology, and technology. Multiscale Modeling of Particle Interactions provides vital insight on particle interactions in areas of biological sciences, chemical engineering, medicine, and manufacturing technology. To better examine cell and tissue mechanics, theoretical aspects of multiscale modeling, and new developments in nanotechnology, the text includes real experimental data and images from novel optical microscopy systems. Chemists and biologists as well as clinicians and students will find this a helpful and important reference.
