Plans for a biophysics section?

  1. Sep 20, 2014 #1
    Hello hello! I realize the 4.0 migration is top priority now but was wondering about this. Are there any plans to add a Biophysics section in the future? I remember hearing that each section requires at least one active "expert" user in the field as a sort of moderator so that requirement might be holding it back. Right now posts related to biophysics such as the folding of proteins could really go in about 4 different sections and still be relevant. Those being General Physics, Chemistry, Medical Science, and Biology. I can see the fact that biophysics is so interdisciplinary can make the decision to make its own section non-trivial.

    Any info on this would be lovely and appreciated.

    Welcome Vannay! At this time a biophysics question is most welcome in either the physics or biology forums. We have lots of people ready to help out in both sections.

    Please note we don't create empty sections in hope to attract traffic - we know from experience it doesn't work. When there is enough traffic to guarantee new section, we will happily open it to make forum easier to navigate. As of today I don't see it.
