Quantum Dots: Applications in Biology by Marcel P. Bruchez
English | PDF | 2007 | 253 Pages | ISBN : 3540140077 | 6.52 MB

Quantum Dots captures many diverse applications enabling utility in biological detection. Organized into five parts, the first two parts cover the use of QDs in imaging fixed and living cells (and tissues). Protocols are included for using QDs in routine (protein and structural cellular labeling), as well as enabling (single receptor trafficking, clinical pathology, correlative microscopy) applications. Part 3 shows early efforts aimed at using QDs in live animals. The final 2 parts demonstrate the versatility of QD technology in existing assay technology.

YAC Protocols

YAC Protocols By Alasdair MacKenzie
English | PDF | 2006 | 209 Pages | ISBN : 1588296121 | 5.18 MB

It is now 10 years since the first edition of YAC Protocols was published in 1996. YAC Protocols was first produced to address the huge demand within the research community for a lab-based text that described in detail the wide range of uses for large insert yeast artificial chromosome (YAC) DNA clones. In doing this, the original editor, David Markie, and the many different contri- tors who provided descriptions of the protocols they used and developed, did a magnificent job.

Bioprocessing of Plant In Vitro Systems

Bioprocessing of Plant In Vitro Systems By Atanas Pavlov
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 591 Pages | ISBN : 331954599X | 17.3 MB

This handbook presents how plant in vitro technologies can overcome current limitations in the production of important plant-derived substances. It explains the advantages of plant in vitro technologies, notably the independence from climatic and soil conditions and the ability to synthesize diverse bioactive substances under controlled conditions. Apart from making diverse metabolites, which can be used e.g. as pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, flavors, colors, biopesticides or food additives, more easily and more efficiently available, the methods described in this handbook also offer the advantage that rare and threatened plants, which provide access to interesting and desired substances, can be better protected, when the substances are harvested from suitable plant in vitro systems.

The Kolsky-Hopkinson Bar Machine: Selected Topics

The Kolsky-Hopkinson Bar Machine: Selected Topics By Ramzi Othman
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 290 Pages | ISBN : 3319719173 | 19.71 MB

In this book, leading scientists share their vision on the Kolsky-Hopkinson bar technique, which is a well-established experimental technique widely used to characterize materials and structures under dynamic, impact and explosion loads. Indeed, the Kolsky-Hopkinson bar machine is not a simple experimental device. It is rather a philosophical approach to solve the problem of measuring impact events. The split Hopkinson pressure bar conventional device is mainly limited to test homogeneous ductile non-soft materials under uni-axial compression.

Theories to Inform Superior Health Informatics Research and Practice

Theories to Inform Superior Health Informatics Research and Practice By Nilmini Wickramasinghe
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 462 Pages | ISBN : 3319722867 | 14.42 MB

This unifying volume offers a clear theoretical framework for the research shaping the emerging direction of informatics in health care. Contributors ground the reader in the basics of informatics methodology and design, including creating salient research questions, and explore the human dimensions of informatics in studies detailing how patients perceive, respond to, and use health data. Real-world examples bridge the theoretical and the practical as knowledge management-based solutions are applied to pervasive issues in information technologies and service delivery. Together, these articles illustrate the scope of health possibilities for informatics, from patient care management to hospital administration, from improving patient satisfaction to expanding the parameters of practice.

Philosophy of Race: An Introduction

Philosophy of Race: An Introduction By Naomi Zack
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 269 Pages | ISBN : 3319787284 | 4.06 MB

Philosophy of Race: An Introduction provides plainly written access to a new subfield that has been in the background of philosophy since Plato and Aristotle. Part I provides an overview of ideas of race and ethnicity in the philosophical canon, egalitarian traditions, race in biology, and race in American and Continental Philosophy. Part II addresses race as it operates in life through colonialism and development, social constructions and institutions, racism, political philosophy, and gender. This book constructs an outline that will serve as a resource for students, nonspecialists, and general readers in thinking, talking, and writing about philosophy of race.

The Function of Emotions: When and Why Emotions Help Us

The Function of Emotions: When and Why Emotions Help Us By Heather C. Lench
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 270 Pages | ISBN : 3319776185 | 4.63 MB

This eye-opening text brings together research from behavioral science, neuroscience, and other fields to make a cogent case for emotions acting as a practical framework for living our lives. A dozen basic emotions are analyzed in terms of what causes them, how they change thoughts and behaviors, and the functional value of these responses. Contrary to the common idea of emotions as fleeting occurrences, they are shown as having the potential for lasting impact on moods, thoughts, and behaviors. Intriguing findings assert that even negative emotions such as jealousy and anger can have positive results such as promoting positive goals, and can lead to successful outcomes in overarching domains such as cognition and well-being.
