  • Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells in Brain Diseasesby Vivi M. Heine; Stephanie Dooves; Dwayne Holmes

    Springer 2011; US$ 49.95

    Brain diseases can have a large impact on patients and society, and treatment is often not available. A new approach in which somatic cells are reprogrammed into induced pluripotent cells (iPS cells) is a significant breakthrough for regenerative medicine. This promises patient-specific tissue for replacement therapies, as well as disease-specific... more...

  • Stem Cells and Cancer Stem Cells, Volume 4by M.A. Hayat

    Springer 2012; US$ 239.00

    Vast therapeutic applications of the following specific stem cells in disease and tissue injury are discussed: embryonic stem cells, induced pluripotent stem cells, human hair follical stem cells, bone marrow-derived human mesenchymal stem cells, adipose-derived stem cells, periodontal/progenitor cells, cancer stem cells, and breast cancer stem cells.... more...

  • The Cold War Politics of Genetic Researchby William deJong-Lambert

    Springer 2012; US$ 159.00

    This book uses the reaction of a number of biologists in the United States and Great Britain to provide an overview of one of the most important controversies in Twentieth Century biology, the "Lysenko Affair". The book is written for advanced undergraduate and graduate students of history/history of science. It covers a number of topics... more...

  • Stem Cells and Cancer Stem Cells, Volume 5by M.A. Hayat

    Springer 2012; US$ 239.00

    It is pointed out that a cancer stem cell is a type within a tumor that possesses the capacity of self-renewal and can give rise to the heterogeneous lineages of cancer cells, which comprise the tumor. It is emphasized that a unique feature of cancer stem cells is that, although conventional chemotherapy kills most cells in a tumor, cancer stem cells... more...

  • Stem Cells and Cancer Stem Cells, Volume 6by M.A. Hayat

    Springer 2012; US$ 239.00

    The difference among pluripotent stem cells, multipotent stem cells, and unipotent stem cells is pointed out. Vast therapeutic applications of the following specific stem cells in disease and tissue injury are discussed: human embryonic stem cells, human mesenchymal stem cells, germ cell-derived pluripotent stem cells, induced pluripotent stem cells,... more...

  • Organelle Geneticsby Charles E. Bullerwell

    Springer 2011; US$ 209.00

    Mitochondria and chloroplasts are eukaryotic organelles that evolved from bacterial ancestors and harbor their own genomes. The gene products of these genomes work in concert with those of the nuclear genome to ensure proper organelle metabolism and biogenesis. This book explores the forces that have shaped the evolution of organelle genomes and the... more...

  • Regulatory RNAsby Bibekanand Mallick; Zhumur Ghosh

    Springer 2012; US$ 209.00

    Recent progress in high-throughput technologies and genome wide transcriptome studies have lead to a significant scientific milestone of discovering non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) which spans through a major portion of the genome. These RNAs most often act as riboregulators, and actively participate in the regulation of important cellular functions at the... more...

  • Control of Cell Fate in the Circulatory and Ventilatory Systemsby Marc Thiriet

    Springer 2011; US$ 199.00

    The volumes in this authoritative series present a multidisciplinary approach to modeling and simulation of flows in the cardiovascular and ventilatory systems, especially multiscale modeling and coupled simulations. The cardiovascular and respiratory systems are tightly coupled, as their primary function is to supply oxygen to and remove carbon dioxide... more...

  • The Nucleolusby Mark O. J. Olson

    Springer 2011; US$ 249.00

    Within the past two decades, extraordinary new functions for the nucleolus have begun to appear, giving the field a new vitality and generating renewed excitement and interest. These new discoveries include both newly-discovered functions and aspects of its conventional role. "The Nucleolus" is divided into three parts: nucleolar structure... more...

  • Expert Knowledge and Its Application in Landscape Ecologyby Ajith H. Perera; C. Ashton Drew; Chris J. Johnson

    Springer 2011; US$ 209.00

    Typically, landscape ecologists use empirical observations to conduct research and devise solutions for applied problems in conservation and management. In some instances, they rely on advice and input of experienced professionals in both developing and applying knowledge. Given the wealth of expert knowledge and the risks of its informal and implicit... more...
