Biological Physics: Errata to the updated first edition

"The laws of nature will defend themselves;--but error--(he would add, looking earnestly at my mother)--error, Sir, creeps in thro' the minute holes and small crevices which human nature leaves unguarded." -- Laurence Sterne, Tristram Shandy
The current version of the book is the 5th printing (2014). There are no known errata yet. This list will grow as errata are found. I'll be grateful to hear of any errors not already on this list.
Thanks, Philip Nelson

Errata to the 4th printing:


Big corrections:

Clarifications and small corrections:

On page 36, and elsewhere, a human striated muscle cell is called a "myofibril". Actually, in mammal Anatomy and Physiology, a striated muscle cell is called a muscle fiber, a myocyte or a myofiber. A "myofibril" is actually a component of a myofiber, a bundle of actin and myosin filaments. Many of these form the contractile apparatus in myofibers. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Myofibril; thanks to Vasco Fachada).
On page 199, perhaps the statement of the Statistical Postulate would be clearer like this: "Rather, AMONG ALL POSSIBLE PROBABILITY DISTRIBUTIONS OF MICROSTATES, EQUILIBRIUM IS THE ONE THAT HAS the greatest possible disorder allowed by..."

Spelling etc:

On page 269: "10^9 k_BT" should be "10^9 k_BT_r."
On page 358: "such a effect" should be "such an effect".
On page 415 "... same mechaism" should be "... same mechanism".
On page 464, Figure 10.30: Horizontal axis label should read "1000/T, K^{-1}." It may not be obvious, but this is a semilogarithmic plot.
