I am PhD student in biophysics, and I am looking for interesting theoretical papers for my personal training and for journal club presentations.
Going on journal websites and browse the thousands of references is laborious. The ideal would be a book similar to what "Landmark Papers in Cell Biology" is for biology, but for mathematical biology or biophysics.
My interests : polymerization, phase separation, reaction diffusion, reaction systems, equilibrium or non equilibrium statistical physics, phase transitions
In non-equilibrium stat mech, I would recommend Gavin Crooks' "Entropy production fluctuation theorem and the nonequilibrium work relation for free energy differences", in which he proves his famous theorem, and the related experimental paper by Carlos Bustamante's group "Verification of the Crooks fluctuation theorem and recovery of RNA folding free energies". There are also the related papers by Jarzynski and Evans in which they prove their respective fluctuation theorems.
Unfortunately I don't have much in the fields that you're interested in.
