The exploration of quantum effects in biology is an emerging field of research that concerns itself with the experimental and theoretical exploration of quantum phenomena in biological systems. In this lecture I aim to bring out design principles that nature may be exploiting to make use of quantum effects and I will develop in particular one underlying theme - the dynamics of quantum dynamical networks in the presence of an environment and the fruitful interplay that the two may enter. I will aim to demonstrate that this interplay has a wider relevance for biology.

In this seminar, we will describe the recent development of a new Quantum Key Distribution platform which is based on the Coherent One Way protocol. We will describe the general features of this protocol and will discuss the practical challenges related to the development of a system. We will also approaches for the security certification of such a system and review current applications.
