Defrosting Ancient Microbes: Emerging Genomes in a Warmer World

1st Edition

Featured

Scott Rogers, John D. Castello
September 23, 2019

Ice is melting around the world and glaciers are disappearing. Water, which has been solid for thousands and even millions of years, is being released into streams, rivers, lakes and oceans. Embedded in this new fluid water, and now being released, are ancient microbes whose effects on today's organ...

Handbook of Nonmedical Applications of Liposomes: From Gene Delivery and Diagnosis to Ecology

1st Edition

Danilo D. Lasic, Yechezkel Barenholz
June 30, 2019

First published in 1996, liposomes have become an important model in fundamental biomembrane research, including biophysical, biochemical, and cell biological studies of membranes and cell function. They are thoroughly studied in several applications, such as drug delivery systems in medical...

Companion Diagnostics (CDx) in Precision Medicine

1st Edition

Il-Jin Kim
March 04, 2019

There is a new trend in anti-cancer therapeutics development: a targeted therapy and precision medicine that targets a subgroup of patients with specific biomarkers. An in vitro diagnostic (IVD) assay is required to identify a subgroup of cancer patients who would benefit from the targeted therapy,...

The Human Genome in Health and Disease: A Story of Four Letters

1st Edition

Tore Samuelsson
February 04, 2019

The human genome is a linear sequence of roughly 3 billion bases and information regarding this genome is accumulating at an astonishing rate. Inspired by these advances, The Human Genome in Health and Disease: A Story of Four Letters explores the intimate link between sequence information and...

Revival: Topology and Physics of Circular DNA (1992)

1st Edition

Alexander Vologodskii
January 28, 2019

Topology and Physics of Circular DNA presents comprehensive coverage of the physical properties of circular DNA. The author examines how topological constraints arising from cyclization of DNA lead to distinctive properties that make closed molecules radically different from linear DNA. The...
