                                                                            The Physics of Lipid Rafts

This paper provides a review of our current understanding of the nature of lipid rafts and address the controversies surrounding this theory. It examines the physical concepts contributing to this interdisciplinary field in the form of imaging technologies, such as NMR, FRET, and FRAP, and computational modeling, such as molecular dynamic and course-grained simulations.
