Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book offers a state-of-the-art overview on non amplified DNA detection methods and provides chemists, biochemists, biotechnologists and material scientists with an introduction to these methods. In fact all these fields havededicated resources t o the problem of nucleic acid detection, each contributing with their own specific methods and concepts. This book will explain the basic principles of the different non amplified DNA detection methods available,highlighting their respective advantages an d limitations. The importance of non-amplified DNA sequencing technologies will be also discussed. Non-amplified DNA detection can be achieved by adopting different techniques. Such techniqueshave allowed the commercialization of innovative platforms for DNA detection that are expected to break into the DNA diagnostics market. The enhanced sensitivity required for the detection of non amplified genomic DNA has prompted newstrategies that can achieve ultrasensitivity by combining specific materials with sp ecific detection tools. Advanced materials play multiple roles in ultrasensitive detection. Optical and electrochemical detection tools are among themost widely investigated to analyze non amplified nucleic acids. Biosensors based on piezoelectric crystal have been also used to detect unamplified genomic DNA. The main scientific topics related to DNA diagnostics are discussed by anoutstanding set of authors with proven experience in the field

Title:The Physics of Proteins [electronic resource] An Introduction to Biological Physics and Molecular Biophysics
Author(s): Hans Frauenfelder
Shirley S Chan

Date:2010
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Physics and the life sciences have established new connections within the past few decades, resulting in biological physics as an established subfield with strong groups working in many physics departments. These interactionsbetween physics and biolo gy form a two-way street with physics providing new tools and concepts for understanding life, while biological systems can yield new insights into the physics of complex systems. To address the challenges ofthis interdisciplinary area, The Physics of Pro teins: An Introduction to Biological Physics and Molecular Biophysics is divided into three interconnected sections. In Parts I and II, early chapters introduce the terminology anddescribe the main biological systems that physicists will encounter. Simila rities between biomolecules, glasses, and solids are stressed with an emphasis on the fundamental concepts of living systems. The central section (Parts III andIV) delves into the dynamics of complex systems. A main theme is the realization that biologica l systems, in particular proteins, do not exist in unique conformations but can assume a very large number of slightly different structures.This complexity is captured in the concept of a free energy landscape and leads to the conclusion that fluctuations are crucial for the functioning of biological systems. The final chapter of this section challenges the reader to applythese concepts to a problem that appears in the current literature. An extensive series of appendices (Part V) provide descriptions of the key physical tools and analytical methods that have proven powerful in the study of the physicsof proteins. The appendices are designed to be consulted throughout the section on protein dynamics without breaking the deductive flow of the logic in the central section of the book

Note:Probabilistic concepts play an increasingly important role in mathematics, physics, biology, financial engineering and computer science. They help us to understand magnetism, amorphous media, genetic diversity and the perils ofrandom developments on the financial markets, and they guide us in constructing more efficient algorithms. This text is a comprehensive course in modern probability theory and its measure-theoretical foundations. Aimed primarily atgraduate students and researchers, the book cov ers a wide variety of topics, many of which are not usually found in introductory textbooks, such as: limit theorems for sums of random variables martingales percolation Markov chainsand electrical networks construction of stochastic processes Poisson poi nt processes and infinite divisibility large deviation principles and statistical physics Brownian motion and stochastic integral and stochastic differentialequations. The theory is developed rigorously and in a self-contained way, with the chapters on me asure theory interlaced with the probabilistic chapters in order to display the power of the abstract concepts in the world ofprobability theory. In addition, plenty of figures, computer simulations, biographic details of key mathematicians, and a wealth of examples support and enliven the presentation

Note:Evolution is a critical challenge for many areas of science, technology and development of society. The book reviews general evolutionary facts such as origin of life and evolution of the genome and clues to evolution throughsimple systems. Emerging areas of science such as systems biology and bio-complexity are founded on the idea that phenomena need to be understood in the context of highly interactive processes operating at different levels andon different scales. This is where physics meets compl exity in nature, and where we must begin to learn about complexity if we are to understand it. Similarly, there is an increasingly urgent need to understand and predict theevolutionary behavior of highly interacting man-made systems, in areas such as comm unications and transport, which permeate the modern world. The same applies to the evolution of human networks such as social, political and financialsystems, where technology has tended to vastly increase both the complexity and speed of interaction, whi ch is sometimes effectively instantaneous. The book contains reviews on such diverse areas as evolution experiments withmicroorganisms, the origin and evolution of viruses, evolutionary dynamics of genes and environment in cancer development, aging as an evolution-facilitating program, evolution of vision and evolution of financial markets

Note:Structural requirements constrain the evolution of biological entities at all levels, from macromolecules to their networks, right up to populations of biological organisms. Classical models of molecular evolution, however, arefocused at the level of the symbols - the biological sequence - rather than that of their resulting structure. Now recent advances in understanding the thermodynamics of macromolecules, the topological properties of gene networks, theorganization and mutation capabilities of ge nomes, and the structure of populations make it possible to incorporate these key elements into a broader and deeply interdisciplinary view of molecular evolution. This book gives an accountof such a new approach, through clear tutorial contributions by l eading scientists specializing in the different fields involved

Title:Multiscale Modeling [electronic resource] : A Bayesian Perspective
Author(s): Marco A. R Ferreira
Herbert K. H Lee
Date:2007
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:A wide variety of processes occur on multiple scales, either naturally or as a consequence of measurement. This book contains methodology for the analysis of data that arise from such multiscale processes. The book brings togethera number of recent d evelopments and makes them accessible to a wider audience. Taking a Bayesian approach allows for full accounting of uncertainty, and also addresses the delicate issue of uncertainty at multiple scales. The Bayesianapproach also facilitates the use of know ledge from prior experience or data, and these methods can handle different amounts of prior knowledge at different scales, as often occurs in practice. The book is aimed at statisticians,applied mathematicians, and engineers working on problems dealing w ith multiscale processes in time and/or space, such as in engineering, finance, and environmetrics. The book will also be of interest to those working on multiscalecomputation research. The main prerequisites are knowledge of Bayesian statistics and basic Markov chain Monte Carlo methods. A number of real-world examples are thoroughly analyzed in order to demonstrate the methods and to assist thereaders in applying these methods to their own work. To further assist readers, the authors are making source c ode (for R) available for many of the basic methods discussed herein. Marco A. R. Ferreira is an Assistant Professor ofStatistics at the University of Missouri, Columbia. Herbert K. H. Lee is an Associate Professor of Applied Mathematics and Statistics at the University of California, Santa Cruz, and authored the book Bayesian Nonparametrics via NeuralNetworks

Title:Dynamics of Complex Interconnected Systems: Networks and Bioprocesses [electronic resource]

Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The book reviews the synergism between various fields of research that are confronted with networks, such as genetic and metabolic networks, social networks, the Internet and ecological systems. In many cases, the interactingnetworks manifest so-call ed emergent properties that are not possessed by any of the individual components. This means that the detailed knowledge of the components is insufficient to describe the whole system. Recent work hasindicated that networks in nature have so-called scale -free characteristics, and the associated dynamic network modelling shows unexpected results such as an amazing robustness against accidental failures. Modelling the signaltransduction networks in bioprocesses as in living cells is a challenging interdisc iplinary research area. It is now realized that the many features of molecular interaction networks within a cell are shared to a large degree by theother complex systems mentioned above, such as the Internet, computer chips and society. Thus knowledge ga ined from the study of complex non-biological systems can be applied to the intricate braided relationships that govern cellularfunctions
