 The production of biological light (ultra-weak photon emission or biophotons) within many types of cells and tissues is characteristic of an alive organism. 

You will begin a journey of discovery about biophotons in relationship to biological matter

and about how such biophotons can be detected utilizing specialized very photon-sensitive


In this book, Roeland Van Wijk provides a unified synthesis that facilitates easy entry into an exciting

sub-field of biology. Light in Shaping Life encompasses the history of biophoton research,

insight into how biophotons are generated, and into their involvement with life. 

Also included, is an overview of the potential benefits of such research to a better understanding

of health and medicine. 

There is sequel to Light in Shaping Life available: Biophoton Technology in Energy and Vitality Diagnostics A Multi-disciplinary, Systems biology, and Biotechnology Appraoch Roeland van Wijk, Yu Yan and Eduard van Wijk Meluna, 2017 ISBN 9789081884341

About the author (2014)

Roeland van Wijk.  

Roeland Van Wijk received his degree in Biology in 1965 and his PhD in 1968 (Utrecht University, the Netherlands). During his 38-year career at Utrecht University he introduced biophotonics and biophoton research into the field of molecular cell biology. In 1999 he founded the research company MELUNA, a branch of the International Institute of Biophysics, to assist companies and universities in their introduction of biophoton knowledge.
