A Cell Biologist's Guide to Modeling and Bioinformatics by Raquell M. Holmes

By Raquell M. Holmes

A step by step advisor to utilizing computational instruments to unravel difficulties in telephone biology

Combining specialist dialogue with examples that may be reproduced by means of the reader, A mobilephone Biologist's advisor to Modeling and Bioinformatics introduces an array of informatics instruments which are to be had for examining organic information and modeling mobile methods. You discover ways to totally leverage public databases and create your individual computational types. All that you just desire is a operating wisdom of algebra and mobile biology; the writer presents all of the different instruments you must comprehend the required statistical and mathematical methods.

Coverage is split into major categories:

  • Molecular series database chapters are devoted to gaining an figuring out of instruments and strategies—including queries, alignment tools, and statistical value measures—needed to enhance searches for series similarity, protein households, and putative useful domain names. Discussions of series alignments and organic database looking out specialise in publicly on hand assets used for historical past study and the characterization of novel gene products.
  • Modeling chapters take you thru all of the steps all for making a computational version for such uncomplicated learn components as mobile cycle, calcium dynamics, and glycolysis. each one bankruptcy introduces a brand new simulation tooland is predicated on released study. the combo creates a wealthy context for ongoing ability and information improvement in modeling organic examine systems.

Students phone biologists can enhance the fundamental talents had to research computational telephone biology. This detailed textual content, with its step by step guideline, allows you to try out and increase your new bioinformatics and modeling talents. References are supplied that can assist you benefit from extra complex recommendations, applied sciences, and training.

Cellular and Molecular Procedures in Developmental Biology

This quantity accommodates sensible equipment on the point of molecular, mobile, and full organism biology in vertebrate and invertebrate types. It offers trouble-free protocols written step by step for state of the art recommendations with the emphasis on single-cell solution techniques. Key positive factors * presents elementary, present protocols and significant value determinations * comprises diversified research of mobile and molecular ideas * offers every thing from whole-organ cultures to electrophysiological ways * information quite a few equipment for interfering with gene functionality in a variety of species * deals a number of illusions of in situ hybridization, immunostaining, and apoptosis

Cell Biological Applications of Confocal Microscopy

Phone organic purposes of Confocal Microscopy instructs researchers on equipment of getting ready organic fabric for confocal microscopy. person chapters describe the technical difficulties of imaging constructions in thick specimens and important thoughts resembling multi-color dye visualization. The e-book presents particular examples of functions of confocal microscopy to phone organic difficulties.

Photographic and Descriptive Musculoskeletal Atlas of Chimpanzees: With Notes on the Attachments, Variations, Innervation, Function and Synonymy and Weight of the Muscles

Chimpanzees, together with universal chimpanzees and bonobos, are our closest residing kin. This e-book, that's the 1st photographic and descriptive musculoskeletal atlas of the genus Pan, adopts an analogous layout because the photographic atlases of Gorilla and Hylobates formerly released via an analogous authors.

Crystals, Fabrics, and Fields: Metaphors That Shape Embryos

Acclaimed theorist and social scientist Donna Jeanne Haraway makes use of the paintings of pioneering developmental biologists Ross G. Harrison, Joseph Needham, and Paul Weiss as a springboard for a dialogue a few shift in developmental biology from a vitalism-mechanism framework to organicism. The booklet deftly interweaves Thomas Kuhn's idea of paradigm develop into this wide-ranging research, emphasizing the position of version, analogy, and metaphor within the paradigm and arguing that any actually beneficial theoretical process in biology should have a crucial metaphor.
