Light in Shaping Life. Biophotons in Biology and Medicine

The production of biological light (ultra-weak photon emission or biophotons) within many types of cells and tissues is characteristic of a living organism. You will begin a journey of discovery about biophotons in relationshipto biological matter and about how such biophotons can be detected utilizing specialized very photon-sensitivetechnologies.
