Vibrations, Quanta and Biology

The exploration of quantum effects in biology is an emerging field of research that concerns itself with the experimental and theoretical exploration of quantum phenomena in biological systems. In this lecture I aim to bring out design principles that nature may be exploiting to make use of quantum effects and I will develop in particular one underlying theme - the dynamics of quantum dynamical networks in the presence of an environment and the fruitful interplay that the two may enter. I will aim to demonstrate that this interplay has a wider relevance for biology.
