Molecular Biology - Not Only for Bioinformaticians

Molecular Biology - Not Only for Bioinformaticians by Wiesława Widłak
English | PDF | 2013 | 159 Pages | ISBN : 3642453600 | 22.9 MB

Bioinformatics, which can be defined as the application of computer science and information technology to the field of biology and medicine, has been rapidly developing over the past few decades. It generates new knowledge as well as the computational tools to create that knowledge. Understanding the basic processes in living organisms is therefore indispensable for bioinformaticians. This book addresses beginners in molecular biology, especially computer scientists who would like to work as bioinformaticians.

Antibiotic Resistance Protocols, Second Edition

Antibiotic Resistance Protocols, Second Edition by Stephen H. Gillespie
English | PDF | 2010 | 223 Pages | ISBN : 160327278X | 3.7 MB

Since the publication of the popular first edition, genomic methods have become more accessible, allowing antibiotic researchers to probe not only the sequence of antibiotic resistance determinants but the mechanism whereby they are expressed and regulated. That, in concert with array technology and an understanding of the importance of biofilms, has greatly expanded antibiotic resistance knowledge. In order to reflect the growing field, Antibiotic Resistance Protocols, Second Edition fully updates and builds upon its first edition with contributions from leading researchers.

Viruses and Man: A History of Interactions by Milton W. Taylor
English | PDF | 2014 | 433 Pages | ISBN : 3319077570 | 13 MB

Milton Taylor, Indiana University, offers an easy-to-read and fascinating text describing the impact of viruses on human society. The book starts with an analysis of the profound effect that viral epidemics had on world history resulting in demographic upheavals by destroying total populations. It also provides a brief history of virology and immunology. Furthermore, the use of viruses for the treatment of cancer (viral oncolysis or virotherapy) and bacterial diseases (phage therapy) and as vectors in gene therapy is discussed in detail.

50 Years of Bat Research: Foundations and New Frontiers by Burton K. Lim
English | EPUB | 2021 | 375 Pages | ISBN : 3030547264 | 34.7 MB

With more than 1,400 species, bats are an incredibly diverse and successful group of mammals that can serve as model systems for many unique evolutionary adaptations. Flight has allowed them to master the sky, while echolocation enables them to navigate in the dark. Being small, secretive, nocturnal creatures has made bats a challenge to study, but over the past 50 years, innovative research has made it possible to dispel some of the mystery and myth surrounding them to give us a better understanding of the role these animals play in the ecosystem.

Psychopharmacology is the study of the effects of psychoactive drugs on the functioning of the central nervous system at all levels of analysis, thus embracing cognition, behaviour, psychological states, neurophysiology, neurochemistry, gene expression and molecular biology. It includes, as an integral part of its domain, the interaction of environmental and genetic factors with psychoactive drug action, their medicinal and social uses, and their abuse.

Coronaviruses: Molecular Biology and Virus-Host Interactions by Hubert Laude
English | PDF | 1993 | 462 Pages | ISBN : 0306445999 | 55.47 MB

Coronaviruses represent a major group of viruses of both molecular biological interest and clinical significance in animals and humans. During the past two decades, coronavirus research has been an expanding field and, since 1980, an international symposium was held every 3 years. We organized the yth symposium for providing an opportunity to assess important progresses made since the last symposium in Cambridge (U. K. ) and to suggest areas for future investigations.
