Quantum Mechanics in Biology

This appears to be a report on a lecture given by Seth Lloyd at the Perimeter Institute. It covers how various biological organisms or functions work via quantum mechanics.

Bird navigation, plant photosynthesis and the human sense of smell all represent ways living things appear to exploit the oddities of quantum physics, scientists are finding.

Supposedly, the video of this lecture will appear on the Perimeter Institute website, but as of this morning, it isn't up yet.

Google had a workshop on quantum biology recently, you can find the videos at GoogleTechTalks.
