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...

What Species Mean: A User's Guide to the Units of Biodiversity

1st Edition

Julia D. Sigwart
