Biophysics by Pattabhi

Book Description

Biophysics, being an interdisciplinary topic, is of great importance in modern biology. This book addresses the needs of biologists, biochemists, and medical biophysicists for an introduction to the subject. The text is based on a one-semester course offered to graduate students of life sciences, and covers a wide range of topics from quantum mechanics to pre-biotic evolution. To understand the topics, only basic school level mathematics is required. The first chapter introduces and refreshes the reader's knowledge of physics and chemistry. The next chapters cover various physico-chemical techniques used to study biomolecular structures, followed by treatments of spectroscopy, microscopy, diffraction, and computational techniques. X-ray crystallography and NMR are dealt with in greater detail. The latter half of the book covers results obtained from applications of the above techniques. Some of the other topics dealt with are energy pathways, biomechanics, and neuro-biophysics.

Hardcover: 272 pages

Biophysics 4th Edition

Book Description

Biophysics - the science of physical principles of life itself, of biological systems - is presented here not merely as physics for biologists, but as an entirely independent subject with its own innate network of ideas and approaches. From the microscopic forces that constitute life, the intramolecular bonds and ionic interactions, to the macroscopic forces of the environment, temperature and pressure, the author presents and explains all aspects of life from a Biophysicist's point of view. Exciting biological themes such as neuronal processing and differentiation as well as current medical and environmental topics are introduced from a surprising perspective in this imaginative new textbook.

An Introduction to Environmental Biophysics

Book Description

This book describes the physical microenvironment of living organisms. It presents a simplified discussion of heat and mass transfer models and applies them to exchange processes between organisms and their surroundings. Emphasis is placed on teaching the student how to calculate actual transfer rates, rather than just studying the principles involved. Numerous examples are provided to illustrate many of the principles, and problems are included at the end of each chapter to help the student develop skills in using the equations and to gain an understanding of modern environmental biophysics. The book is an engineering approach to environmental biology

Artificial Intelligence and Molecular Biology

Book Description

The enormous amount of data generated by the Human Genome Project and other large-scale biological research has created a rich and challenging domain for research in artificial intelligence. These original contributions provide a current sampling of AI approaches to problems of biological significance; they are the first to treat the computational needs of the biology community hand-in-hand with appropriate advances in artificial intelligence. Focusing on novel technologies and approaches, rather than on proven applications, they cover genetic sequence analysis, protein structure representation and prediction, automated data analysis aids, and simulation of biological systems. A brief introductory primer on molecular biology and Al gives computer scientists sufficient background to understand much of the biology discussed in the book.

An Introduction to Genetic Algorithms

John Holland

This is the best general book on genetic algorithms written to date. It covers background, history, and motivation; it selects important, informative examples of applications and discusses the use of genetic algorithms in scientific models; and it gives a good account of the status of the theory of genetic algorithms. Best of all, the book presents its material in clear, straightforward, felicitous prose. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Bioinformatics: A Practical Guide to the Analysis of Genes and Proteins, Second Edition

Bioinformatics: From Genomes to Drugs

Book Description

Bioinformatics - the use of computers to retrieve, process, analyze and simulate biological information - promises to revolutionize the process of drug discovery and development. This book provides a broad, application-oriented overview of this technology. Contributions by internationally renowned specialists in the field afford a detailed insight into single bioinformatics components and algorithmic methods. In addition, the state-of-the-art in bioinformatics is evaluated equally from a global view by introducing real application scenarios such as genome projects that require the use of a whole set of bioinformatics tools.

The profound knowledge on bioinformatics presented here not only enables readers to go beyond a mere push-button approach to using bioinformatics software and interpreting the data generated appropriately. It is also essential to assess the potential and limitations of today's bioinformatics software and future challenges. Directed to all those involved in the use or development of new bioinformatics tools - scientists and managers from the fields of molecular biotechnology, pharmaceutics, and medicinal chemistry - this book will lead one step further on the way to rational drug design

Beginning Perl for Bioinformatics

Book Description

With its highly developed capacity to detect patterns in data, Perl has become one of the most popular languages for biological data analysis. But if you're a biologist with little or no programming experience, starting out in Perl can be a challenge. Many biologists have a difficult time learning how to apply the language to bioinformatics. The most popular Perl programming books are often too theoretical and too focused on computer science for a non-programming biologist who needs to solve very specific problems. Beginning Perl for Bioinformatics is designed to get you quickly over the Perl language barrier by approaching programming as an important new laboratory skill, revealing Perl programs and techniques that are immediately useful in the lab. Each chapter focuses on solving a particular bioinformatics problem or class of problems, starting with the simplest and increasing in complexity as the book progresses. Each chapter includes programming exercises and teaches bioinformatics by showing and modifying programs that deal with various kinds of practical biological problems. By the end of the book you'll have a solid understanding of Perl basics, a collection of programs for such tasks as parsing BLAST and GenBank, and the skills to take on more advanced bioinformatics programming. Some of the later chapters focus in greater detail on specific bioinformatics topics. This book is suitable for use as a classroom textbook, for self-study, and as a reference. The book covers:

Programming basics and working with DNA sequences and strings

Debugging your code

Simulating gene mutations using random number generators

Regular expressions and finding motifs in data

Arrays, hashes, and relational databases

Regular expressions and restriction maps

Using Perl to parse PDB records, annotations in GenBank, and BLAST output

Toxicological Chemistry and Biochemistry Third Edition

Book Description

Bridging the gap between toxicology and chemistry, this book covers both at a level understandable by a wide spectrum of readers. The third edition of a best-selling resource, it has been thoroughly updated and expanded to reflect recent advances in areas such as the toxic effects and analysis of xenobiotics. A new chapter on the genetic aspects of toxicology discusses how chemical damage to DNA can cause mutations, cancer, and other adverse effects on specific body systems. The author explores the role of genetics in determining individual susceptibilities to various toxicanants. With review questions and references at the end of each chapter, this book is ideal as both a textbook and a reference.
