  • Molecular Genetics of Recombination

    Genetic recombination is an important process involved in shaping the genetic make up of progeny. Increasingly, it has become evident that recombination is a DNA repair pathway crucial during DNA replication in vegetatively growing cells. It plays a critical role in preserving the integrity of the genome by mediating the repair of DNA damage, ...

  • Gene Avatars

    'Why life?' Questions of this type were for a long time the prerogative of philosophers who left the 'how' question to scientists. Nowadays, Darwin's successors no longer have any qualms about addressing the 'why' as well as the 'how'. Over a century ago, Darwin modestly admitted having 'thrown some light on the origin of species - this mystery of ...

  • Synthetic DNA Delivery Systems

    DNA delivery into cells is a rapidly developing area in gene therapy and biotechnology. Moreover, it is a powerful research tool to determine gene structure, regulation, and function.Viral methods of DNA delivery are well-characterized and efficient, but little is known about the toxicity and immunogenecity of viral vectors. As a result, ...

  • Free Radicals in Biology and Environment

    Our understanding of the quantitative aspects of free radical chemistry and the involvement of radicals in such areas as biology, medicine, the environment, etc., has developed spectacularly over recent years, yet the various topics are commonly discussed separately, in specific meetings and specialised publications. Free Radicals in Biology ...

  • Marine Organic Matter: Biomarkers, Isotopes and DNA

    The oceans contain a great biodiversity of marine organisms. They include a rich variety of unusual genes and biochemistries and hence a diverse array of organic compounds ranging from colourful carotenoids and chlorophylls to lipids with structures ranging from the simple to the complex. This volume brings together ten chapters on the occurrence ...

  • DNA Computing

    This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-proceedings of the 9th International Workshop on DNA Based Computers, DNA9, held in Madison, Wisconsin, USA in June 2003.The 22 revised full papers presented were carefully selected during two rounds of reviewing and improvement from initially 60 submissions. The papers are organized in topical ...

  • Computational Genome Analysis

    Computational Genome Analysis: An Introduction presents the foundations of key problems in computational molecular biology and bioinformatics. It focuses on computational and statistical principles applied to genomes, and introduces the mathematics and statistics that are crucial for understanding these applications. The book is appropriate for a ...

  • Cell and Molecular Biology of Plastids

    The past two decades have witnessed an enormous progress in our understanding of plastid (chloroplast) biology. Basic principles of plastid biogenesis, genome structure and function, gene expression and its regulation as well as plastid-nuclear interaction and communication pathways have been elucidated. In addition, the possibility to directly ...

  • Microarrays

    Microarray Technology, Volumes 1 and 2, present information in designing and fabricating arrays and binding studies with biological analytes while providing the reader with a broad description of microarray technology tools and their potential applications. The first volume deals with methods and protocols for the preparation of microarrays. The ...

  • Evolutionary Bioinformatics

    Books on bioinformatics which began appearing in the mid 80s primarily served gene-hunters, and biologists who wished to construct family trees showing tidy lines of descent. Given the great pharmaceutical industry interest in genes, this trend has continued in most subsequent texts. These deal extensively with the exciting topic of gene discovery ...

  • Pattern Recognition in Bioinformatics

    This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the International Workshop on Pattern Recognition in Bioinformatics, PRIB 2006, held in Hong Kong, China in August 2006 within the scope of ICPR 2006, the 18th International Conference on Pattern Recognition.The 19 revised full papers presented together with a introduction on Pattern Recognition in ...

  • Semi-Markov Chains and Hidden Semi-Markov Models toward Applications

    This book is concerned with the estimation of discrete-time semi-Markov and hidden semi-Markov processes. Semi-Markov processes are much more general and better adapted to applications than the Markov ones because sojourn times in any state can be arbitrarily distributed, as opposed to the geometrically distributed sojourn time in the Markov case. ...
