To access the webpages for the biophysics text

Links to scientific papers and books are organized according to
research area. The papers cannot be viewed on-line; rather they
are stored as PDF files. To produce a good
quality printed copy, the PDF files have been scanned at a higher resolution
than a typical monitor, with the result that the on-screen versions
may look a little ragged.
