# Portal:Quantum biology

This topic page is for organizing the development of **Quantum biology** content on Wikiversity.
**Quantum biology** is the application and formulation of quantum theories to biological processes, such as: photosynthesis, nerve excitation and conduction, quantum aspects of muscle contraction, solitons in biopoloymer crystals such as A-DNA, protein-protein interactions, and so on.

*If you either have peer-reviewed publications or are knowledgeable in any area Quantum biology, please feel free to improve the contents of this new Wikipedia topic page; your contributions would be greatly appreciated.*
