Is quantum physics important for living systems?
Today's guest is a professor of molecular genetics at the University of Surrey in England and explores this question in the book “Life at the edge: The coming of age of quantum biology”.
In the podcast we talk about how quantum physics is or may be key in photosynthesis, smelling, navigation, evolution and even thinking.
And we also touch on development of new antibiotics, another expertise of McFadden.
