Statistical and Evolutionary Analysis of Biological Networks

   This book reviews and explores statistical, mathematical and evolutionary theory and tools in the understanding of biological networks. The book is divided into comprehensive and self-contained chapters, each of which focuses on an important biological network type, explains concepts and theory and illustrates how these can be used to obtain insight into biologically relevant processes and questions. There are chapters covering metabolic, transcriptomic, protein interaction and epidemiological networks as well as chapters that deal with theoretical and conceptual material. The authors, who contribute to the book, are active, highly regarded and well-known in the network community.

Nanotechnology for the Regeneration of Hard and Soft Tissues

   Nanotechnology is an emerging and exciting area in the field of implants. Numerous promising developments have been elucidated regarding the use of nanotechnology to regenerate tissues. This important book highlights the potential of nanophase materials to improve hard and soft tissue applications. In all cases, increased tissue regeneration has been observed for bone, cartilage, vascular, bladder, and central/peripheral nervous system tissues.

Alcamo's Fundamentals Of Microbiology: Body Systems

   Ideal for allied health and pre-nursing students, Alcamo’s Fundamentals of Microbiology: Body Systems, Second Edition, retains the engaging, student-friendly style and active learning approach for which award-winning author and educator Jeffrey Pommerville is known. The book presents diseases, complete with new content on recent discoveries, in a manner that is directly applicable to students and organized by body system.

Alcamo's Microbes And Society (Jones & Bartlett Learning Topics in Biology Series)

   The book is intended for liberal arts students taking a foundation course in the life sciences. It discusses the role of microbes in our everyday lives, from food production to their roll in biotechnology and the numerous other ways that microbes contribute to our world. It goes on to explore such topics as the function of microbes in ecological systems and environmental systems. Coverage of bioterrorism, antibiotic resistance, and microbial disease offer students a broad and current perspective of the extensive impact of various microbes. Consistent with Edward Alcamo's student-friendly writing style, material is presented in a lively format that will engage students and highlight both the positive and negative impact that microorganisms have in our society.

An Introduction to Zoology [Hardcover]

   Investigating the Animal World provides students with an accessible and engaging look at the fundamentals of zoology. This student-friendly text is driven by the underlying concepts of zoology rather than the memorization of terminology from the field. The authors take care to write in a style students can relate to as to not overwhelm them with encyclopedic passages. They go on to include Connects sections at the end of each chapter which discuss how the animals in the chapter connect to students from and economic, ecologic, medical, and cultural perspective, to emphasize how the animal world and the human realm are intimately intertwined.

Botany [Hardcover]

   An Introduction to Plant Biology provides a modern and comprehensive overview of the fundamentals of botany while retaining the important focus of natural selection, analysis of botanical phenomena, and diversity. Mauseth is sure to provide the latest material on molecular biology and plant biotechnology in an effort to keep pace with these advancing areas of study. All sections are written to be self-contained allowing for a flexible presentation of course material.

Essential Genetics [Paperback]

   Essential Genetics presents carefully chosen topics that provide a solid foundation to the basic understanding of gene mutation, expression, and regulation. It goes on to discuss the development and progression of genetics as a field of study within a societal and historical context. The book includes new learning objectives within each chapter which helps students identify what they should know as a result of their studying and highlights the skills they should acquire through various practice problems.

Human Biology [Paperback]

   Written for the introductory human biology course, the Seventh Edition of Chiras' acclaimed text maintains the original organizational theme of homeostasis presented in previous editions to present the fundamental concepts of mammalian biology and human structure and function. Chiras discusses the scientific process in a thought-provoking way that asks students to become deeper, more critical thinkers. The focus on health and homeostasis allows students to learn key concepts while also assessing their own health needs. An updated and enhanced ancillary package includes numerous student and instructor tools to help students get the most out of their course!

   It presents an authoritative, balanced introduction to microbiology for majors. The text provides a manageable amount of detail, omitting topics that were previously taught in prerequisite courses, while still maintaining a level of intellectual rigor appropriate for students at this level. A dynamic art program presents accurate molecular & cellular images in an innovative 3-D like style, while the author’s clear, student-friendly writing style helps students grasp difficult concepts. Principles of Modern Microbiology is sure to engage and inspire majors who are looking to expand their knowledge of the many facets of microbiology.

Lewin's GENES XI

   Lewin's GENES has long been the essential resource for providing the teaching community with the most modern presentation to this dynamic area of study. GENES XI continues this tradition by introducing the most current data from the field, covering gene structure, sequencing, organization, and expression. It has enlisted a wealth of subject-matter experts, from top institutions, to provide content updates and revisions in their individual areas of study.

Principles Of Cell Biology

   The book provides students with an accessible approach to the fundamental concepts of cell biology. The text focuses on the underlying principles that illustrate both how cells function as well as how we study them. It identifies 10 specific principles of Cell Biology, and devotes a separate chapter to illustrate each.

Case Studies For Understanding The Human Body

   The book is the ideal resource for students enrolled in any Anatomy and Physiology or Human Biology Course. The case studies work well in a cooperative learning setting where students work together to review and solve open-ended questions associated with each case. The exercises are also perfect for individual homework assignments. The discussions cover common disease of all major organ systems and present related topics that are often part of course discussion.
