    "The power of quantum biology" article in Mail and Guardian published on 2012 05 04

    Mail & Guardian (2012 05 04) (Getting Ahead supplement) published a comment on the NITheP 2012 Summerschool on Quantum Biology.

    The information for the article was supplied by:
    Adriana Marais is a PhD student in the field of quantum biology at the Centre for Quantum Technology, University of KwaZulu-Natal. Dr Ilya Sinayskiy, a National Institute of Theoretical Physics researcher, is also at the centre. Professor Francesco Petruccione is the South African research chair in quantum information processing and communication, head of the centre and deputy director of the National Institute of Theoretical Physics.

    Quantum Biology is a further application of tools and techniques from quantum information processing and communication, that the above individuals have been working on recently (see e.g. I. Sinayskiy, A. Marais, F. Petruccione and A. Ekert, Decoherence-assisted transport in a dimer system, Physical Review Letters 108, 020602 (2012) ). http://prl.aps.org/abstract/PRL/v108/i2/e020602
