Title:Computer Simulation and Data Analysis in Molecular Biology and Biophysics [electronic resource] : An Introduction Using R
Author(s): Victor Bloomfield
Date:2009
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This book provides an introduction, suitable for advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students, to two important aspects of molecular biology and biophysics: computer simulation and data analysis. It introduces tools toenable readers to lea rn and use fundamental methods for constructing quantitative models of biological mechanisms, both deterministic and with some elements of randomness, including complex reaction equilibria and kinetics, populationmodels, and regulation of metabolism and d evelopment to understand how concepts of probability can help in explaining important features of DNA sequences and to apply a useful set of statistical methods to analysis of experimentaldata from spectroscopic, genomic, and proteomic sources. These quan titative tools are implemented using the free, open source software program R. R provides an excellent environment for general numerical and statistical computing andgraphics, with capabilities similar to Matlab. Since R is increasingly used in bioinforma tics applications such as the BioConductor project, it can serve students as their basic quantitative, statistical, and graphics tool as theydevelop their careers

Title:Cellular Signaling in Health and Disease [electronic resource]
Author(s): Martin Beckerman
Date:2009
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer US
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In todays world, three great classes of non-infectious diseases the metabolic syndromes (such as type 2 diabetes and atherosclerosis), the cancers, and the neurodegenerative disorders have risen to the fore. Thesediseases, all associated with incre asing age of an individual, have proven to be remarkably complex and difficult to treat. This is because, in large measure, when the cellular signaling pathways responsible for maintaining homeostasisand health of the body become dysregulated, they genera te equally stable disease states. As a result the body may respond positively to a drug, but only for a while and then revert back to the disease state. Cellular Signaling inHealth and Disease summarizes our current understanding of these regulatory netwo rks in the healthy and diseased states, showing which molecular components might be prime targets for drug interventions. This is accomplished bypresenting models that explain in mechanistic, molecular detail how a particular part of the cellular signalin g web operates properly in health and improperly in disease. The stability of the health- and disease-associated states isdynamic and supported by multiple feedback loops acting positively and negatively along with linkages between pathways. During the pa st few years an ongoing series of important discoveries have been made that advance our understandingof how the body works and may guide us on how to better deal with these diseases. These include the discovery of chronic inflammation as a causal factor i n all of these disease classes, the appearance of reactive oxygen species as amessenger molecule that can act both positively and negatively, the propensity of proteins to misfold into aggregation- and disease-prone forms, and the rise of epigenetics incl uding the emergence of small non-coding RNA with importantregulatory functions out of the so-called junk RNA. Chapters are devoted to each of these classes of findings with additional details i

Note:Physics of the Human Body comprehensively addresses the physical and engineering aspects of human physiology by using and building on first-year college physics and mathematics. Topics include the mechanics of the static body andthe body in motion, t he materials properties of the body, muscles in the body, the energetics of body metabolism, fluid flow in the cardiovascular and respiratory systems, the acoustics of sound waves in speaking and hearing, visionand the optics of the eye, the electrical pr operties of the body, and the basic engineering principles of feedback and control in regulating all aspects of function. The goal of this text is to understand physical issues concerning thehuman body, in part by developing and then using simple and subs equently more refined models of the macrophysics of the human body. Many chapters include a brief review of the necessary physical principles. There are problems at theend of each chapter solutions to selected problems are also provided. This text is gear ed to undergraduates interested in physics, medical applications of physics, quantitative physiology, medicine, and biomedical engineering

Title:The Emerging Physics of Consciousness [electronic resource]
Author(s): Jack A Tuszynski
Date:2006
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Consciousness remains one of the major unsolved problems in science. How do the feelings and sensations making up conscious experience arise from the concerted actions of nerve cells and their associated synaptic and molecularprocesses? Can such feel ings be explained by modern science, or is there an entirely different kind of explanation needed? And how can this seemingly intractable problem be approached experimentally? How do the operations of theconscious mind emerge out of the specific interacti ons involving billions of neurons? This book seeks answers to these questions on the underlying assumption that consciousness can be understood using the intellectual potential ofmodern physics and other sciences. There are a number of theories of conscio usness, some based on classical physics while others require the use of quantum concepts. The latter ones have drawn criticism from the parts of the scientificestablishment while simultaneously claiming that classical approaches are doomed to failure. The contributing authors present a spectrum of opinions from both sides of this on-going scientific debate, allowing readers to decide forthemselves which of the approaches are most likely to succeed

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