Silkworm Biofactory: Silk to Biology

1st Edition

Katsumi Maenaka, Enoch Y. Park
November 08, 2018

While silk derived from silkworm has been of economic importance for centuries, more recently silkworm has been found to have utility in biomedicine. This has attracted attention for expressing eukaryotic recombinant proteins, which require post-translational modifications. In 1985 Dr. Susumu Maeda...

Intravoxel Incoherent Motion (IVIM) MRI: Principles and Applications

1st Edition

Denis Le Bihan, Mami lima, Christian Federau, Eric E. Sigmund
November 08, 2018

Intravoxel incoherent motion (IVIM) refers to translational movements which within a given voxel and during the measurement time present a distribution of speeds in orientation and/or amplitude. The concept was introduced in 1986 together with the foundation of diffusion MRI because it had been...
