We live in an exciting era for life science. Advanced tools for observing life and accumulated information of biological systems give great opportunities for unveiling what life is. This school aims to encourage the next generation of biophysicists by introducing fundamental questions in life, experimental tools for observing life, and theoretical/computational methods for integrating data. We select information and energy in life as our third theme following the series of previous themes, information and information processing in life. In particular, we focus on metabolism in biology and information thermodynamics in physics. This school introduces intriguing questions: how living systems generate and store energy; and how they maintain their vitality by cosumming energy and processing information.
