Welcome to WikiProject Biophysics. Several Wikipedians, initially from the Biophysical Society, have formed this collaboration resource and group dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of Biophysics and the organization of information and articles on this topic. This page and its subpages contain their suggestions and various resources; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians interested in the topic. If you would like to help, please join the project, inquire on the talk page and see the to-do list below.
Starting at the February Biophysical Society meeting in San Francisco, the society is sponsoring the second annual contest for the most improved biophysics-related articles, image collections, or other contributions to Wikipedia or Commons, or other relevant progress - this year's emphasis is on upload of open-license media. You can sign up on the Biophysics wiki-edit contest page as an entrant, where there are also more details. Six winners will get $100, a barnstar on their talk page, and free 2015 membership and registration to the 2015 Biophysical Society meeting in Baltimore. All entrants will get a neat button to wear.
Biophysics can be described as a branch of science that applies techniques from physics to the study of biology. This project will primarily cover articles about subject-area results and methods in biophysics, but also general overviews, history, organizations, and people.
Article requests: need main article on single-molecule biophysics, plus more specific subpages. Need article on structure validation - now started, please help. The Protein Society, the RNA Society, and the American Crystallographic Association should have pages. There is currently nothing on neutron crystallography for proteins (link it to Neutron diffraction) More requests
Please feel free to add yourself here, and to indicate any areas of particular interest.

Please feel free to list new Biophysics-related articles here (newer articles at the top, please). Any new articles that have an interesting or unusual fact in them, are at least over 1,500 characters of prose, don't have any dispute templates on them, and cite their sources, should be suggested for the Did you know? box on the Wikipedia Main Page.
This page is within the scope of WikiProject Biophysics, a collaborative effort to improve the coverage of Biophysics on Wikipedia. If you would like to participate, please visit the project page, where you can join the discussion and see a list of open tasks.
