Quantum Sensing in Biology

In this talk I will briefly review quantum biology, the synthesis of quantum information with biological systems.

I will then describe magnetic sensing using radical-pair reactions, and demonstrate why such reactions are an ideal biochemical system demonstrating the premise of quantum biology, in short, because they realize quantum measurement dynamics, and require measures of coherence for understanding their time evolution. I will finally elaborate on most recent work producing a sort of “quantum biological uncertainty relation”, which connects the product of a biological resource and a biological figure of merit, with a measure of coherence based on the Wigner-Yanase information.
