  • Environmental Genomics

    Environmental genomics seeks to predict how an organism or organisms will respond, at the genetic level, to changes in their external environment. These genome responses are diverse and, as a result, environmental genomics must integrate molecular biology, physiology, toxicology, ecology, systems biology, epidemiology and population genetics into ...

  • Small-scale Freshwater Toxicity Investigations

    While toxicity testing procedures and hazard assessment approaches have been published in past decades, many are wanting in detail for users to fully understand or reproduce successfully. Small-scale freshwater toxicity investigations (Volumes 1 and 2) responds to this need by providing comprehensive information on biological testing which is ...

  • Adhesion Protein Protocols

    The second edition of Adhesion Protein Protocols combines traditionaltechniques with cutting-edge and novel techniques that can be adaptedeasily to different molecules and cell types. The topics discussed inthis updated second edition include novel techniques for studyingcell-cell adhesion, neutrophil chemotaxis, in vitro assays used tostudy ...

  • Paraoxonase (PON1) in Health and Disease

    The journey to find genes responsible for determining sensitivity or resistance to specific insecticides led to the paraoxonase (PON1) gene on human chromosome 7. This gene encodes a 355 amino acid protein that is localized on the high density lipoprotein (HDL) particles in plasma. Characterization of this gene revealed that different individuals ...

  • Novel Approaches in Biosensors and Rapid Diagnostic Assays

    In the medical, food, and environmental fields there is a continuous demand for inexpensive and sensitive analytical devices that are reliable, rapid, capable of high-throughput screening, and have low cost per test unit. Small and portable biosensor devices are designed to fulfill most of these requirements, and can be used in laboratory and ...
