Quantum biology is a new swiftly growing scientific synthesis merging quantum information science with the richness and complexity of biological systems. Recent theoretical and experimental evidence supports the early intuition of the founding fathers of quantum mechanics that biological systyems should be influenced by the intricacies of quantum physics. Currently, quantum biology is explored mainly along three fronts: photosynthesis, magnetoreception and olfaction. Quantum biology is not about the “static”, atomistic aspect of biological structure but about dynamic effects related to quantum coherence and entanglement influencing biological function. Quantum biology is a uniquely interdisciplinary field combining quantum science, physical chemistry, biochemistry and biology.
