I am a medical student , but i am highly interested in physics and math and in medical school we are studying many interesting phenomenons , now we are not supposed to know more than the superficial bit of information they present us with , but i got really stuck with some matters and i really wanted to understand in order to establish a better understanding of the whole thing . so i would like to respectfully ask you to recommend some books or articles that might explain these matters : - how do you go from a "solution" liquid to a tissue : now this might seem obvious , but i have a hard time understanding it . proteins like collagen or proteoglycans that have physical properties that allow the edification of tissue . i just don't understand the transition from a solution where proteins or any other osmotic particles are dissolved into a liquid , and a human tissue . (i know it also contains cells but i am talking about the extra-cellular matrix) essentially is how the extra-cellular matrix establishes a ferme tissue . i want a full answer explained by the laws of physics and what i get from biology is not enough to explain this . - all the of the basic atomic interactions , oxydation , the exchange of electrons , energy , photons ... etc , now i know this is too general , but i want to understand this at a fundamental level , it essentially revolves around understanding a bit of "quantum mechanics" and that's the problem , what i read on the internet is either too complex or too simple , so i am just looking for a number of books that would help me understand the whole phenomenon for me not be lost around those reactions . all i am looking for is a number of books to read for me to establish a better understanding . thank you very much for your attention .
