Silkworm Biofactory: Silk to Biology

1st Edition

Katsumi Maenaka, Enoch Y. Park
November 07, 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...

Composite Media with Weak Spatial Dispersion

1st Edition

Constantin Simovski
November 06, 2018

This book presents a modern theory of so-called weak spatial dispersion (WSD) in composite media of optically small inclusions without natural magnetism and optical nonlinearity. WSD manifests in two important phenomena called bianisotropy and artificial magnetism, whose microscopic origin is...
