|Looking back over the last century in biophysics, there are certain scientific reports that have withstood the test of time. These reports present groundbreaking discoveries, that introduced new perspectives on the working of life and created new avenues of research. These works offer insights into how the best science is practiced. In this seminar class we will discuss a selection of such research articles. Topics span scales from the workings of proteins, such as a molecular motor, via cell function, looking at nerves, to full organism morphogenesis. This seminar provides the opportunity to go through some biophysics articles which not only contain original, out-of-the-box thinking but are also exemplary for pedagogical and inspiring scientific writing. Importantly, the seminar also serves to provide first insights into a wide range of current research topics in biophysics.
