Book Cover Chlamydiae are a group of obligate intracellular microorganisms with a homogeneous group-specific antigenic structure, and a unique mode of development. The infections caused by them are unprecedented and wide-spread throughout the world, including a broad range of hosts among domestic and animal species and humans, and a variety of clinical manifestations. The uniqueness of chlamydia pathology consists mainly in the fact that the agents of the individual diseases are so close in their biological properties that they are represented only by the single genus Chlamydia, which includes all currently recognized species. Although chlamydiae and chlamydial infections were discovered a long time ago, they are still under-researched and relatively unknown to broad circles of microbiologists, virologists, epidemiologists and clinicians. A number of issues relating to molecular biology, pathogenesis, mechanisms of Chlamydia development and their interactions with cells, as well as their genetic conditioning and regulation, remain unclear. The same is true for ambiguities, problems and contradictions related to epidemiology, diagnostic approaches, immunity and vaccines. Based on scientific facts and the analysis of literature, and the experience of the author, Chlamydiae and Chlamydial Infections attempts to shed light on the cited problems, in terms of modern microbiology, cell biology and molecular biology.

This book explains what cells are and introduces the processes of mitosis and meiosis. Meiosis is a special type of cell division that is designed to produce gametes. Before meiosis occurs, the cell will be double diploid and have a pair of each chromosome, the same as before mitosis. Mitosis is used for almost all of your body¡¦s cell division needs. It adds new cells during development and replaces old and worn-out cells throughout your life. The aim of mitosis is to produce daughter cells that are genetically identical to their mothers, with not a single chromosome more or less. Meiosis, on the other hand, is used for just one purpose in the human body: the production of gametes¡X sex cells, or sperm and eggs. Its goal is to make daughter cells with exactly half as many chromosomes as the starting cell. The recent discovery of analogous proteins that are involved in the regulation of both meiosis and mitosis makes it increasingly apparent that meiosis is closely related to mitosis, and can be regarded as a highly specialized mitotic division.

Book Cover Evolution of Nervous Systems, Second Edition is a unique, major reference which offers the gold standard for those interested both in evolution and nervous systems. All biology only makes sense when seen in the light of evolution, and this is especially true for the nervous system. All animals have nervous systems that mediate their behaviors, many of them species specific, yet these nervous systems all evolved from the simple nervous system of a common ancestor. To understand these nervous systems, we need to know how they vary and how this variation emerged in evolution. In the first edition of this important reference work, over 100 distinguished neuroscientists assembled the current state-of-the-art knowledge on how nervous systems have evolved throughout the animal kingdom. This second edition remains rich in detail and broad in scope, outlining the changes in brain and nervous system organization that occurred from the first invertebrates and vertebrates, to present day fishes, reptiles, birds, mammals, and especially primates, including humans. The book also includes wholly new content, fully updating the chapters in the previous edition and offering brand new content on current developments in the field. Each of the volumes has been carefully restructured to offer expanded coverage of non-mammalian taxa, mammals, primates, and the human nervous system. The basic principles of brain evolution are discussed, as are mechanisms of change. The reader can select from chapters on highly specific topics or those that provide an overview of current thinking and approaches, making this an indispensable work for students and researchers alike.

SE01-456 Handbook of Metabolic Pathway Engineering.
  Akhtar, M. K./ 9781682500569/ Price:US$ 190.00
 
Book Cover Metabolism refers to the total of an organism¡¦s chemical reactions. A metabolic pathway is a series steps found in biochemical reactions that help convert molecules or substrates, such as sugar, into different, more readily usable materials. These reactions occur inside of a cell, where enzymes, or protein molecules, break down or build up molecules. These enzymes are similar to traffic lights in that they can slow, speed up, and stop metabolic processes. Pathways are required for the maintenance of homeostasis within an organism and the flux of metabolites through a pathway is regulated depending on the needs of the cell and the availability of the substrate. The end product of a pathway may be used immediately, initiate another metabolic pathway or be stored for later use. This book gives a systematic and comprehensive overview of the burgeoning field of metabolic pathway engineering and focuses on the future areas of metabolic engineering and the impact of new technologies.

The Ethics of Consumption: The Citizen, the Market, and the Law.
  Rocklinsberg, Helena/ 9789086862313/ Price:EUR 79.00
 
Book Cover We are all consumers. What we consume, how, and how much, has consequences of great moral importance for humans, animals, and the environment. Great challenges lie ahead as we are facing population growth and climate change and reduced availability of fossil fuels. It is often argued that key to meeting those challenges is changing consumption patterns among individual as well as institutions, for instance through reducing meat consumption, switching to organic or fair trade products, boycotting or 'buycotting' certain products, or consuming less overall. There is considerable disagreement regarding how to bring this about, whose responsibility it is, and even whether it is desirable. Is it a question of political initiatives, producer responsibility, the virtues and vices of individual consumers in the developed world, or something else? Many of these issues pose profound intellectual challenges at the intersection of ethics, political philosophy, economics, and several other fields. This publication brings together contributions from scholars in numerous disciplines, including philosophy, law, economics, sociology and animal welfare, who explore the theme of 'the ethics of consumption' from different angles.

The Great Diversity: Trajectories of Asian Development.
  Brautaset, Camilla/ 9789086862337/ Price:EUR 56.00
 
Book Cover This book brings together scholars from the universities of Bergen and Leeds who explore on how we may understand different trajectories of development in Asia, arguably the most dynamic and certainly the most diverse part of our world. It asserts that there is no one singular ?truth? on understanding development, or universal model on prescribing future paths of development. Evidence from Asia reminds us that the importance of locality in shaping development has not diminished despite deepening globalisation in the modern era. Furthermore, by accepting the prevalence of diversity we are able to learn certain lessons of development from each other, both within and across scholarly disciplines. The book explores how the concept of ?development? is itself highly contested, and there exist multiple narratives and discourses on the subject as demonstrated in this book. This book does not seek to define development, or prescribe a particular method of understanding it in an Asian context. Rather, it presents a number of works that in their own way touch on the subject of development, and it lays bare the inherent diversity of development as an idea, practice and experience. It is up to the reader to reflect on how the evidence and arguments presented in each chapter resonates, or not, on their own understanding of development.

SE01-418 Fundamentals of Mold Growth in Indoor Environments and Strategies for Healthy Living.
  Samson, Robert A./ 9789086861354/ Price:EUR 100.00
 
Today, indoor mold and moisture, and their associated health effects, are a society-wide problem. The economic consequences of indoor mold and moisture are enormous. Their global dimension has been emphasized in several recent international publications, stressing that the most important means for avoiding adverse health effects is the prevention (or minimization) of persistent dampness and microbial growth on interior surfaces and in building structures. This book aims to describe the fundamentals of indoor mold growth as a prerequisite to tackle mold growth in the existing building stock as well as in future energy efficient buildings. It brings together different disciplinary points of view on indoor mold, ranging from physics and material science to microbiology and health sciences. The contents have been outlined according to three main issues: Fundamentals, particularly addressing the crucial roles of water and materials, Health, including a state-of-the-art description of the health-related effects of indoor molds, and Strategies, integrating remediation, prevention and policies.
   
SE01-412 Adult Stem Cell Standardization.
  Di Nardo, P./ 9788792329745/ Price:EUR 90.00
 
Stem cell research and technology represent a major challenge for treating otherwise non-curable patients. A decade of intensive research has demonstrated that initial hopes based more on the will to succeed than on solid scientific bases can be translated into factual techniques only by adopting more rigorous procedures and strategies. Among other major impediments, the failure so far experienced in applying stem cell technologies to repair parenchymal organs can be ascribed to the lack of sufficient knowledge of basic mechanisms, but also to the lack of standardized criteria and protocols. Very often each laboratory follows its own ¡§recipe¡¨ using erratic nomenclature and non-comparable, if not confusing, experimental protocols. All this makes it difficult to learn from the others and, ultimately, hampers the advance of knowledge on stem cell behavior. The ambitious goal of this book is to gather the most innovative and scientifically robust knowledge and technologies on stem cells and involve investigators from academy and industry in formulating recommendations to standardize the isolation and manipulation of stem cells using solid and well-documented knowledge rather than fragmentary and often unrepeatable experimental reports.

SE01-405 Biological Petri Nets.
  Wingender, Edgar/ 9781607507031/ Price:EUR 120.00
 
It was suggested some years ago that Petri nets might be well suited to modeling metabolic networks, overcoming some of the limitations encountered by the use of systems employing ODEs (ordinary differential equations). Much work has been done since then which confirms this and demonstrates the usefulness of this concept for systems biology. Petri net technology is not only intuitively understood by scientists trained in the life sciences, it also has a robust mathematical foundation and provides the required degree of flexibility. As a result it appears to be a very promising approach to modeling biological systems. This unique compilation of articles is the first book from the journal In Silico Biology (ISB) on Biological Petri Nets. Subjects covered include a summary of essential topics, basic requirements and constraints; quantitative modeling of metabolic networks, gene regulatory and cell-cell communication processes; the concept of hybrid Petri nets; modeling signal transduction pathways; net models of metabolic steady states as well as a number of further applications of Petri net based modeling.
   
SE01-403 Combined Immunodeficiency Associated with DOCK8 Mutations and Related Immunodeficiencies
  Su, Helen C./ 9781607506935/ Price:EUR 90.00
 
The study of rare inherited disorders has led to an improved understanding of how the human immune system is regulated. This knowledge is necessary to develop new therapeutic agents to treat immunodeficiency, autoimmunity, cancer and transplantation. DOCK8 deficiency is one such illustrative disorder which, although only discovered in 2009, has already provided insight into the importance of DOCK8 in regulating the immune system to fight off infections, prevent allergic disease and avoid malignancies. This special issue of Disease Markers presents a collection of eight reviews on the subject of DOCK8 and related immunodeficiencies. Aspects covered include; the biochemical function of DOCK molecules, impaired antibody responses, the role of DOCK molecules in cell trafficking, comparisons between hyper-IgE syndrome due to STAT3, TYK2 and DOCK8 mutations, as well as a number of other related disorders. Together these eight reviews provide a background picture of this fascinating area of human immunodeficiency and identify important areas for future research.
   
SE01-402 Modern Biotechnology: Panacea or New Pandora's Box?
  Tramper, Johannes/ 9789086861699/ Price:EUR 51.00
 
According to Greek mythology Pandora was sent down to earth upon the orders of Zeus. She was given a mysterious box which she was not allowed to open. However, Pandora was very curious and when she arrived on earth she couldn?t help taking a peek inside the box. She saw that it was filled with gifts and calamities and to her astonishment they all escaped and spread throughout humanity, with all the dire consequences thereof. Only hope was left at the bottom. Figuratively speaking, Pandora's box today represents a source of much suffering. Is modern biotechnology just such a Pandora's box, as the anti-biotechnology lobby would have us believe? Or can we selectively release the gifts and turn this new Pandora's box into a Panacea? Modern biotechnology makes use of the recombinant DNA technology to genetically modify microorganisms, plants and animals in order to make them more suitable for all kinds of applications, such as cultivating food crops, baking bread, making wine, antibiotics and hormones, xenotransplantation, and gene- and stem cell therapy. The book also particularly addresses the controversial aspects of these applications.

SE01-398 Symbolic Systems Biology: Theory and Methods.
  Iyengar, M. S./ 9780763753702/ Price:US$ 245.95
 
Systems biology can best be described as the qualitative and quantitative study of biological processes as integrated systems rather than as isolated parts. Unlike traditional biology that has focused on single genes or proteins in isolation, systems biology is concerned with the study of complex interactions of many levels of biological information -- DNA, RNA, proteins, informational pathways --to understand how they work together. An emerging paradigm within systems biology is symbolic systems biology, in which biological phenomena such as signal transduction or metabolic pathways are modeled at the symbolic level of abstraction. Symbolic Systems Biology: Theory and Methods provides a single reference that describes the field and explains the methods of this growing area of study. Ideal for graduate students and researchers, this sourcebook includes the latest data from well-known contributors throughout this emerging field.

VE01-57 Astrobiology: Emergence, Search and Detection of Life.
  Basiuk, Vladimir A./ 9781588831378/ Price:US$ 399.00
 
According to a brief definition, astrobiology is an area of modern knowledge which studies the origin, evolution, distribution, and future of Life in the Universe. The main aspects of astrobiology include experimental and theoretical modeling of the prebiotic and early biological evolution of Life on Earth or elsewhere; the search for present or past Life, biological or prebiotic molecules on other space bodies in our Solar System (for example Titan, Europa, Mars); the search for habitable environments in our Solar system as well as habitable planets outside it; studies of the ability of different Life forms to adapt to new environmental factors on Earth and in space. This explains why it is hard to find another example of a multidisciplinary field, which brings together collective efforts of experts in biology, chemistry, physics, astronomy, spectroscopy, geology, volcanology, analytical and space instrumentation, among others. The present edition would be impossible without involving a similar list of scientists as contributors. The book is organized into three general sections and contains 19 chapters.
   
VE01-44-5 Intelligent Design and Religion as a Natural Phenomenon.
  Wilkins, John/ 9780754627630/ Price:¢G 215.00
 
Over the past decade a strident public debate has arisen about the nature and origin of religions. Controversies include how exactly religion evolved, whether by individual or group selection, if it is adaptive, and if not, whether and how it is a side effect of evolution. This volume focuses on the issue of naturalizing religion: on the ways in which cognitive science and social sciences have treated religion as a natural phenomenon. It questions whether religious behaviour, institutions, and experiences can be explained in natural terms. The editor brings together some of the best published work on the definition of "religion", intelligent design and the evolution of religion.
   
VE01-44-4 Evolution of Culture, The.
  Linquist, Stefan/ 9780754627616/ Price:¢G 225.00
 
Recent years have seen a transformation in thinking about the nature of culture. Rather than viewing culture in opposition to biology, a growing number of researchers now regard culture as subject to evolutionary processes. Recent developments in this field have shifted some of the traditional academic fault lines. Alliances are forming between researchers trained in anthropology, evolutionary biology, psychology and philosophy. Meanwhile, several distinct schools of thought have appeared which differ in their vision of what an evolutionary approach to culture should look like. This volume contains some of the most influential publications on these subjects from the past few decades. A theoretical background chapter and critical introduction identify the core issues at stake in the new study of cultural evolution. These chapters are followed by sections on each of the four dominant approaches: the phylogenetic approach, memetics, dual inheritance theory and niche construction. Following these are two chapters on closely related topics: the psychological mechanisms of culture and the existence of culture in non-human animals. Overall, this volume provides an up to date overview of some of the most exciting trends in contemporary evolutionary thought.
   
VE01-44-3 Evolutionary Ethics.
  Levy, Neil/ 9780754627586/ Price:¢G 150.00
 
Might human morality be a product of evolution? An increasing number of philosophers and scientists believe that moral judgment and behaviour emerged because it enhanced the fitness of our distant ancestors. This volume collects some recent explorations of the evidence for this claim, as well as papers examining its implications. Is an evolved morality a genuine morality? Does an evolutionary origin deflate the pretensions of morality, or strip it of its force in guiding behaviour? Is an evolutionary approach compatible with realism about morality? All sides of these debates are represented in this volume.
   
VE01-44-2 Evolutionary Psychology.
  Linquist, Stefan/ 9780754627555/ Price:¢G 190.00
 
Evolutionary approaches to the study of human beings have been able to explain the origin and maintenance of many of the features of our bodies. Many thinkers believe that an evolutionary approach will be equally fruitful when it comes to explaining the features of our minds. Since our behaviour is driven by our minds, our cognitive dispositions and processes are likely to have been a target of selection and adaptation. This volume collects recent prominent explorations of this theme, as well as the voices of dissenters who argue that our minds are far more significantly the product of culture than of evolution.
   
VE01-44-1 Philosophy of Evolutionary Biology.
  Wilkins, John/ 9780754627531/ Price:¢G 250.00
 
The impact of evolutionary theory on the philosophy of science has been no less profound than its impact on the science of biology itself. Advances in this theory provide a rich set of examples for thinking about the nature of scientific explanation and the structure of science. Many of the developments in our understanding of evolution resulted from contributions by both philosophers and biologists engaging over theoretical questions of mutual interest. This volume traces some of the most influential exchanges in this field over the last few decades. Focal topics include the nature of biological functions, adaptationism as an explanatory and methodological doctrine, the levels of selection debate, the concepts of fitness and drift, and the relationship of evolutionary to developmental biology.
   
VE01-44 International Library of Essays on Evolutionary Thought, The., 5-Vols/Set.
  Levy, Neil/ 9780754627678/ Price:¢G 905.00
 
The theory of evolution is one of science's great achievements and it plays a pivotal role in guiding new research. But could the theory also be capable of illuminating phenomena outside the scope of biology? The volumes in this series explore this question by bringing together some of the seminal writings of the past two decades which explore the relevance of evolution and evolutionarily-inspired thought to arenas of human life beyond the merely biological. The volume editors are experts in the philosophy of biology and they focus the volumes on particular controversies within each field: to what extent are the processes of selection and reproduction that explain changes in gene frequencies also at work in explaining the reproduction of ideas? Is the content of moral systems explained by evolution? Can evolution shed light on why we think as we do, perceive as we do, even feel as we do? The series also includes a volume devoted to an understanding of the theory of evolutionary biology as it is applied to the field. These volumes, which are essential for researchers in the areas of the philosophy of science, the history of ideas, applied philosophy, ethics and philosophy and theology, demonstrate a deepened appreciation for the power and ambition of evolutionary thought and a greater understanding of what it means to be an evolved being.

SE01-402 Olfaction in Vector-Host Interactions.
  Takken, Willem/ 9789086860913/ Price:EUR 101.00
 
Most arthropods, like insects, do not depend on a vertebrate host for survival and reproduction. In contrast, the fitness of those that do, depends on how efficiently they can detect the presence of a host and actively locate it to obtain a blood meal. This is the domain of olfaction, which is perhaps the most important mode of signal exchange between hosts and blood-feeding arthropods that visit them. Important human and domestic animal diseases like malaria, dengue, West Nile virus, bluetongue and trypanosomiasis are transmitted between humans and/or domestic animals as a direct outcome of olfactory responses mediated by host odours. Increased understanding of olfaction and how this governs interactions between arthropods and blood hosts will enable the development of novel strategies to disrupt this behaviour. Many species of tsetse fly, for instance, respond over distance to simple blends of synthetic odours. Combined with traps or insecticide-treated targets, such odour-baited devices can effectively suppress fly populations and thus transmission of sleeping sickness. Such systems still need to be developed for disease-vectoring mosquitoes necessitating further knowledge on the chemical basis of interactions with humans.

  Lee, T. C./ 9781607505266/ Price:EUR 65.00
 
Developments in bioengineering and medical technology have led to spectacular progress in clinical medicine. As a result, increased numbers of courses are available in the area of bioengineering and clinical technology. These often include modules dealing with basic biological and medical sciences, aimed at those taking up these studies, who have a background in engineering. To date, relatively few participants from medicine have taken up courses in biomedical engineering, to the detriment of scientific exchange between engineers and medics. The European Society for Engineering and Medicine (ESEM) aims to bridge the gap between engineering and medicine and biology. It promotes cultural and scientific exchanges between the engineering and the medical/biological fields. This primer consists of a series of First Step chapters in engineering and is principally presented for those with a medical or biology background who intend to start a MSc programme in biomedical engineering, and for medics or biologists who wish to better understand a particular technology. It will also serve as a reference for biomedical engineers.
   
SE01-387 Lichen Biomonitors: Factors Affecting Response Behaviour.
  Godinho, Rita M./ 9781607504825/ Price:EUR 65.00
 
The present book discusses the use of lichen as a biomonitor tool to trace element air deposition, especially focusing on their accumulation performance. The work comprises three main parts, each one addressing relevant issues on factors influencing bioaccumulation. The distribution of accumulated elements, the lichen parameters that need to be used in assessing and ensuring comparability of their characteristics in space and time and the dynamics of the elemental accumulation and release in lichens are all subjects covered in depth in this volume. Lichen Biomonitors: Factor Affecting Response Behaviour starts by presenting the current state of the art of biomonitoring and by introducing relevant issues both generally and specifically recognised as needing attention. The work goes on to explain the intercellular distribution of elements in lichens, the procedures of the comparability testing experiment and, finally, the study of lichens dynamic in more detail. The final chapter discusses and summarises the principal work and the conclusions of the different experiments of the study and highlights the future research that is needed in this area. This book is a must have for people working on biomonitoring issues offering an in depth study particularly in lichen, for those interested or that have previously worked with these organisms.

  van Boxtel, C. J./ 9781607500216/ Price:EUR 127.00
 
Biologicals seems warranted for two reasons. Firstly, WHO has always been deeply concerned about quality assurance and safety of blood products and related biologicals and the Organization has continuously stressed that only blood products of demonstrated quality, safety and efficacy should be used. However there is a fear that especially countries with limited resources have significant difficulties in fulfilling their responsibilities in this field. Secondly, the ever increasing importance of biopharmaceuticals in medicine in itself was reason enough for this book edition.
   
SE01-376 A Compartmental Analysis of the Kinetics of Iron Uptake by Two Antarctic Diatoms.
  Fischer, Astrid C./ 9781607500162/ Price:EUR 60.00
 
The presented data indicated that for the PMMA bottles used in our experiments, the affinity for the wall is of similar magnitude to the iron capacity and affinity for naturally occuring ligands in seawater. This makes that iron wall sorption should be seriously considered in small volume experiments, both in assessments of shorter-term dynamics and in end-point observations in equilibrium conditions. Furthermore the effect of two strong Fe-binding organic ligands, phytic acid (PA) and desferrioxamine B (DFOB) was investigated. On short time scales (<36 h) organic complexation of Fe and the influence of the dark-light cycle overruled the impacts of UV light on the directional flow rates of Fe speciation.

VE01-36 Biochips Nanotechnology.
  He, Nongyue/ 9781588830722/ Price:US$ 399.00
 
Initiated in the 1990¡¦s, biochips have become an extremely important research tool in the field of life sciences and have found many applications in data-mining, highly parallel genome-wide assays, bioinformatics analysis, clinic diagnostics, sample separation and treatment, and monitoring applications. Biochips not only consist of immobilized biomolecules spatially addressed on planar surfaces, but also contain biomolecules fixed in microchannels or microwells, or on an array of beads or sensors. Biochips could fall into different categories as well as different applications or fabricated by different approaches, the role of nanotechnology in preparation and applications of biochips is inevitable. Nanotechnology has made it possible for a single chip to possess more than million features with supra-sensitive detection abilities than that of conventional methods. Nanotechnology has made biochips more applicable for commercialization purpose where biochips could be implanted inside body to dynamically transmit the information and monitor any biological changes in vivo. There has been significant progress on applications of biochips such as DNA chips, protein chips, and carbohydrate chips, and MEMS/NEMS in the field of medical nanotechnology. One could believe that when fused together, biochips and nanotechnology will endlessly bring scientists to newer and promising researching aspects. For this reason, we believe it is of significance to edit and publish a book about the current status of biochips nanotechnology. We also strongly believe that such a comprehensive book associated with various applications of nanotechnology in biochips will be helpful for people to develop new biochips devices, to find new application of nanotechnology and biochips in the coming years, and to bring out more commercialization of biochips and nanotechnology.

SE01-361 Reconstructing Biotechnologies: Critical Social Analyses.
  Ruivenkamp, Guido/ 9789086860623/ Price:EUR 64.00
 
The main subject of this publication is the co-creation of society and biotechnology. The authors do not treat society and biotechnology as separate domains, instead they consider technologies as socially constructed. The main focus of this publication is on agro-biotechnologies and the contributors present perspectives for reconstruction both from and in 'the North' and 'the South'. Reconstructing biotechnologies offers a range of critical social analyses confronting the actuality of biotechnology with the potentialities of its social reconstruction. In doing that, the book develops and merges literature from four different disciplines, namely (i) critical theory and its analyses of technology and power, (ii) political economy, critically assessing the interrelationship between economy, politics and technology, (iii) social constructivism, which holds that technology is the product of agency and knowledge systems, and (iv) the analysis of rural society and agrarian technologies in rural sociology. Reconstructing biotechnologies introduces exciting approaches and examples into the social reshaping of biotechnologies. It brings together critical examinations of contemporary biotechnology development and puts forward possible alternatives written by critical scholars. The contributions in this publication are for students and scholars in a wide range of disciplines such as social and political sciences, science and technology studies, and development studies. The editors of the book are associated with the Social Sciences Department of Wageningen University in the Netherlands and the Graduate School of Economics of Kyoto University in Japan. They have published extensively on social and political theory and biotechnology.

Aspergillus is among the economically most important fungal genera. Aspergillus species are used in the fermentation industry for the production of various enzymes, organic acids and pharmaceutically important compounds, and in Oriental food fermentations. At the same time, Aspergilli can cause opportunistic infections, and produce a range of secondary metabolites also known as mycotoxins which are harmful to humans and animals. Due to its importance in biotechnology, medicine and foods, Aspergilli are in the forefront of studies dealing with various aspects of fungi. This is well illustrated by the fact that projects aiming at sequencing the genomes of nine species are in progress. In this book, some aspects of the biology of this genus are covered, including the biotechnological importance of Aspergilli, their role in mycotoxin contamination of food products including grapes and coffee products, and implications of biodiversity of Aspergillus populations for agriculture. Among the clinical aspects, the role of Aspergilli in eye infections, the mechanisms of antifungal drug resistance and their molecular identification in the clinical setting are covered. Several chapters deal with the genomic aspects of Aspergilli, including the genomics of pigment biosynthesis, extracellular enzyme production, aflatoxin biosynthesis and the identification of genes taking part in sexual processes. Additional chapters cover the variability and inheritance of mycoviruses in Aspergilli and multilocus approaches are given to clarify the evolutionary history of the genus. Finally, a new taxonomic classification of the various Aspergillus sections is given based on multilocus sequence data.

SE01-344 From Dynamics to Structure and Function of Model Bio-Molecular Systems.
  Fontaine-Vive, Fabien/ 9781586037413/ Price:EUR 50.00
 
The purpose of this thesis was to extend recent works on structure and dynamics of hydrogen bonded crystals to model bio-molecular systems and biological processes. The tools that are used are neutron scattering (NS) and density functional theory (DFT) and force field (FF) based simulation methods. The quantitative and parameter-free link (in the case of DFT methods) between structure and dynamics has been applied to strong hydrogen bonded crystals and bio-polymers such as collagen and DNA. In several SSHB crystals, DFT normal modes and molecular dynamics calculations revealed the mechanism of proton transfer as being driven by low frequency phonons. In DNA, the structure-dynamics-function is base-pair opening, which is related to various bio-physical processes like replication and transcription. Force field methods were used and normal mode analysis to identify modes with base-pair opening character. The oriented DNA films for experiments were made using the wet spinning method and the equipment was successfully installed and modernized during the thesis at ILL.

Laboratory Investigations in Molecular Biology presents well-tested protocols in molecular biology that are commonly used in currently active research labs. It is an ideal laboratory manual for college level courses in molecular biology. Because of the modular organization of the manual, laboratory courses can be assembled that would be ideal for science professionals, graduate students, undergraduate students and even advanced high school students in AP courses. The manual is also intended to be useful as a laboratory "bench reference". The experiments are designed to guide students through realistic research projects and to provide students with instruction in methods and approaches that can be immediately translated into research projects conducted in modern research laboratories. Although these experiments have been conducted and optimized over 20 years of teaching the New England Biolabs Molecular Biology Summer Workshops, they are real research projects, not "canned" experiments. Based on extensive teaching experience using these protocols, the authors have found that conducting these experiments as described in these protocols serves to effectively instruct students and science professions in the basic methods of molecular biology. An additional unique feature is that the protocols described in the manual are accompanied by available reagent kits that provide quality-tested, pre-packaged reagents to ensure the successful application of these protocols in a laboratory course setting.

SE01-343 Free Radicals in Biology and Medicine: From Inflammation to Biotechnology.
  Aruoma, Okezie I./ 9781586036836/ Price:EUR 220.00
 
Oxidative stress and inflammatory cell death / tissue damage have been implicated in a wide array of human diseases, including cancer, neurodegenerative diseases, diabetes, inflammatory joint diseases,; cardiovascular dysfunctions as well as ageing. Oxidative stress mediates the activation of transcription factors such as NF?B that, in turn, induce the transcription of certain genes promoting cytokine production. Release of these cytokines results in the enhancement of inflammatory responses and activation of endothelial cells in distant organs. The inflammatory cascade is then triggered by the induction of adhesion molecules and the generation of cytokines and other inflammatory mediators. Given that reactive oxygen and nitrogen species (ROS and RNS respectively) generated by infiltrated neutrophils into distant organs act directly as noxious agents reacting with molecular components, thereby enhancing inflammatory processes and therefore influencing cell viability, ROS and RNS have become potential therapeutic targets for prophylactic biofactors. Whilst their production by phagocytic cells is, of course, essential for the eradication of invading pathogens, and the capacity of selected chemotherapeutic agents to generate such species in specific `target' cells is well known in cancer research, the novel therapeutic actions and potential mechanisms of action of ozone as a microbicidal agent in clinical dentistry are now being advocated. The focus of this publication prominently encompasses the pivotal roles of ROS and RNS in the pathogenesis of many clinical conditions (together with their involvement in the ageing process of lower (yeast) cells, and higher organisms including plants), and discusses the potential applications of dietary-derived antioxidants to interfere with the biomolecular mechanisms of these processes and hence offer realistic therapeutic or prophylactic potentials.
   
SE01-342 Molecular Biology of Spirochetes.
  Cabello, Felipe C./ 9781586036652/ Price:EUR 126.00
 
Diseases produced by spirochetes, including Lyme borreliosis, syphilis and leptospirosis, are on the rise worldwide, and because the biology of their causative organisms, their epidemiology, and clinical presentation display important variations in different geographical areas. For example B. burgdorferi sensu lato produces approximately 20,000 cases of Lyme borreliosis a year in the United States and 60,000 cases in Europe, but B. burgdorferi sensu stricto, B. afzelii and B. garinii are transmitted by different vectors and have different reservoirs and clinical presentations in these different geographic areas. Awareness and better understanding of these variations by researchers in the field is thus highly relevant to improvements in their prevention and treatment, and critical for improvement of human health. This volume focuses on a series of state of the art presentations of the research taking place in the laboratories of the contributors. As such, it may be useful as an introduction to those individuals entering in the burgeoning field of spirochete research. This book could serve as a stimulus for researchers in the field to widen collaborations and exchanges between investigators in the different geographical areas where spirochetal diseases are common since these interactions can only be of benefit to the field.
   
SE01-330 Cell Biology and Instrumentation: UV Radiation, Nitric Oxide and Cell Death in Plants.
  Blume, Yaroslav/ 9781586035747/ Price:EUR 116.00
 
Cellular processes, signaled by UV radiation, contribute to the behavior of plants under various and different stresses in the environment. The importance of the free radical, nitric oxide (NO) was identified as a key early signal in this process. Stress-induced NO can be protective, produce physiological disorders, DNA damage, and programmed cell death (apoptosis). This volume is divided into three parts; (I) Instrumentation and Ecological Aspects; which evaluates case histories, and introduces new instruments for the non-invasive sensing and imaging of UV-stress-related damage in vegetation. (II) Effects of UV Radiation, Nitric oxide and Plant stress; this identifies the cell biological hazards of UV radiation coupled to other environmental stresses, and (III) Plant Stress and Programmed Cell Death; Examining how UV light may relate to the production of NO by plants in terms of DNA damage, error-prone repair cell cycles, and the multiple mechanisms of programmed cell death. The main aim in this publication is to introduce new theoretical developments and instrumentation for cell biology, to update our understanding of the effects of UV radiation, and to evaluate how plants use UV signals to protect against damage and enhance their productivity.

SE01-314 Endoplasmic Reticulum: A Metabolic Compartment.
  Benedetti, Angelo/ 9781586034740/ Price:EUR 116.00
 
The endoplasmic reticulum is a continuous membrane network in the cytosol, which encloses its internal compartment, the endoplasmic reticulum lumen. Several metabolic pathways are compartmentalised within the ER lumen, for example hydrolysis of glucose 6-phosphate, glucuronidation of endo- xenobiotics, posttranslational modification of proteins including redox reactions required for oxidative folding, oxidoreduction of steroid hormones, synthesis of ascorbate. Therefore, enzyme activities of these pathways depend on the special luminal microenvironment, on access to substrates and on release of products. However, in spite of great efforts, the molecular mechanism for the generation and maintenance of this special microenvironment still remains to be elucidated. Beside the well-known functions of the endoplasmic reticulum, such as calcium signaling and the synthesis of secretory proteins, recent findings underlined the importance of the intraluminal redox biochemistry and the role of membrane transporters. The field is currently undergoing extensive reappraisal, new transporters have been identified either molecular or functional level. The local synthesis and the membrane transport of redox active compounds (pro- and antioxidants) seem to be important not only in the disulfide bond formation, but also in the generation of intracellular proliferative/apoptotic signals. The different points of views in this publication help highlight the potential importance of several recently described phenomena, whose significance needs elucidation.

Emphasis is also put on stabilization of nucleic acids prior to isolation, scale-up of plasmid isolation, and DNA cleanup from gels, PCR, sequencing, etc. A number of specific medical and forensic applications are detailed such as preparation of pathogen nucleic acids for real-time PCR analysis, extraction of DNA from paraffin embedded bone marrow trephine biopsies, and isolation of nucleic acids from tissue, blood, semen, hair, and saliva for DNA fingerprints, RFLP, and PCR analyses. This book contains 10 state-of-the-art review chapters written by 20 renowned experts from leading research institutions, industry and a criminal investigation department. Detailed description of methods as well as their theoretical background makes this volume an essential reference for specialists in academia, research institutions, and industry and also a valuable manual for newcomers to this field.
   
VE01-14 Evolution Debate, 1813-1870, The. 9-Vols/Set.
  Knight, David/ 9780415289221/ Price:¢G 1560.00
 
The history of evolutionary thought is often seen as a triumph of secularism in the form of 'scientific naturalism', over religious bigotry. But for those involved in the debate during the nineteenth century, these divisions were not so clearly marked. This collection of nine volumes will bring together key works in the development of evolutionary theory from fundamentalists, such as Philip Gosse who insisted on a literal reading of Genesis, to T.H. Huxley, whose passionate defence of evolution theory earned him the title of 'Darwin's Bulldog'. Between these two extreme positions are situated the works of Cuvier, Wallace, Buckland, Lyell and Owen, all of whom rejected Darwin's version of evolution to varying degrees. Each volume includes a new introduction by the editor, which provides an historical and intellectual context for each of the works, while a general introduction in the first volume provides an overview of the collection as a whole.

  Elston, Robert C./ 9780471486312/ Price:US$ 820.00
 
Human Genetics concerns the study of genetic forces in man. By studying our genetic make-up we are able to understand more about our heritage and evolution. Some of the original, and most significant research in genetics centred around the study of the genetics of complex diseases - genetic epidemiology. This is the third in a highly successful series of books based on articles from the Encyclopedia of Biostatistics. This volume will be a timely and comprehensive reference, for a subject that has seen a recent explosion of interest following the completion of the first draft of the Human Genome Mapping Project. The editors have updated the articles from the Human Genetics section of the EoB, have adpated other articles to give them a genetic feel, and have included a number of newly commissioned articles to ensure the work is comprehensive and provides a self-contained reference.

VA09-214 Dictionary of Biological Psychology.
  Winn, Philip/ 9780415136068/ Price:¢G 225.00
 
Biological Psychology is the study of psychological processes in terms of biological functions. A major obstacle to understanding dialogue in the field has always been its terminology which is drawn from a variety of non-psychological sources such as clinical medicine, psychiatry and neuroscience, as well as specialist areas of psychology such as ethology, learning theory and psychophysics. For the first time, a distinguished international team of contributors has now drawn these terms together and defined them both in terms of their physical properties and their behavioural significance. The Dictionary of Biological Psychology will prove an invaluable source of reference for undergraduates in psychology wrestling with the fundamentals of brain physiology, anatomy and chemistry, as well as researchers and practitioners in the neurosciences, psychiatry and the professions allied to medicine. It is an essential resource both for teaching and for independent study, reliable for fact-checking and a solid starting point for wider exploration.
