Microfluidic Techniques

Microfluidic Techniques

This volume highlights recent important advances in microfluidic techniques for biological applications. Opening chapters focus on the most popular techniques for fabrication of microchips (photolithography, laser ablation, and soft lithography), while further sections focus on microfluidic techniques for bioanalytical assays and bioprocesses, such as DNA analysis, PCR, immunoassays, and cell reactors. Microfluidic Techniques will provide molecular biologists and biochemists with the state-of-the-art technical information required to perform microscale bioassays and bioprocessing in the laboratory.

Annual Plant Reviews, Plant Epigenetics

Annual Plant Reviews, Plant Epigenetics

With the discovery of RNAi pathways and the histone code, epigenetics has become a popular and fast evolving research topic. Plant science has made a number of elementary contributions to this field, and the common elements of epigenetic systems have linked research groups interested in plant, fungal and animal systems. This volume provides a comprehensive overview epigenetic mechanisms and biological processes in plants, illustrating the wider relevance of this research to work in other plant science areas and on non-plant systems. It discusses recent advances in our knowledge of basic mechanisms and molecular components that control transcriptional and post-transcriptional silencing, an understanding of which is essential for plant researchers who use transgenic lines for stable expression of a recombinant construct or for targeted inactivation of an endogenous gene. These aspects should be of special interest to the agricultural industry. The volume illustrates the relevance of epigenetic control systems to gene regulation and plant development, examining paramutation, genomic imprinting and microRNA-based gene regulation mechanisms. Finally, it demonstrates the significance of epigenetic systems to viral defence and genome organisation. The volume is directed at researchers and professionals in plant molecular genetics, plant biochemistry and plant developmental biology.

Annual Plant Reviews, The Evolution of Plant Form

Annual Plant Reviews, The Evolution of Plant Form

The Evolution of Plant Form, an exciting volume in Wiley-Blackwell's Annual plant Reviews, approaches the subject from a diversity of scientific perspectives, bringing together studies of genomics, palaeobotany, developmental genetics and ecological genetics. Written by many of the World's most widely recognised and respected researchers and drawn together and edited by Professors Barbara Ambrose and Michael Purugganan, this exciting volume is an essential purchase for plant scientists, evolutionary biologists, geneticists, taxonomists, ecologists and population biologists. For libraries in universities and research establishments where biological sciences are studied and taught.

Essentials of Autopsy Practice

Essentials of Autopsy Practice

This book covers topical subjects within the field of death investigation, where changes in practice have recently occurred. As the area of dating of wounds has changed since the subject was addressed in a previous volume, this subject is revisited for the first time. The remaining subjects covered in this volume embrace the multi-disciplinary approach required for death investigation, and address advances in the field of forensic radiology imaging, pathology, and toxicology. There is also a chapter on cardiopulmonary resuscitation which explains clinical processes and procedures that may occur to an individual immediately before death that may have a bearing on the subsequent autopsy findings. Essentials of Autopsy Practice: Reviews, Updates and Advances is an educational and practical resource aimed at trainees and consultants, generalists and specialists, and the new multi-disciplinary team alike.
