Main Question or Discussion Point

I am physics undergrad and very keen to learn Biophysics. But the problem is I don't know anything about it, I don't know where to start it. Should I need to know much Biology concepts to start learn Biophysics? If yes tell me what are some topics i should know to learn Biophysics.

Are you considering biophysics for grad school? Or undergrad or what?

I met with some biomath/stats professors at a pretty big university last year before I applied to grad schools and they all said that for their program, you have to have at least shown interest in biology and know a little about the subject - 2/3 university courses at least was recommended for applying.

It seems like a really cool program if we are talking about the same sort of thing.

I don't really have a great answer, I would wait for other opinions. But as I said above, they liked 2-3 university level bio classes.
