The lipid bilayer is the most basic structural element of cell membranes. A wide range of topics are covered in this volume, from the origin of the lipid bilayer concept, to current applications and experimental techniques. Each chapter in this volume is self-contained and describes a group's research, providing detailed methodology and key references useful for researchers. Lipid bilayer research is of great interest to many because of it's interdisciplinary nature. Am Provides an overview of decades of research on the lipid bilayer Am 38 contributed chapters, by leading scientists, cover a wide range of topics in one authoritative volume Am Book coincides with 40th anniversary of BLMThe ((h), (d), IQ) phase diagram. The lines pertaining to three sets of limiting shapes are depicted: the set of shapes composed of two spheres, the set of shapes composed of a cylinder ended by two hemispheres and the set of tori.
