By Milica Radisic, Lauren D. Black III

Cardiac Tissue Engineering: equipment and Protocols presents a set of protocols on cardiac tissue engineering from pioneering and best researchers around the world. those contain tools and protocols for mobile instruction, biomaterial instruction, telephone seeding, and cultivation in numerous structures. Written within the hugely winning Methods in Molecular Biology sequence layout, chapters comprise introductions to their respective issues, lists of the required fabrics and reagents, step by step, easily reproducible laboratory protocols, and key tips about troubleshooting and warding off identified pitfalls.

Authoritative and functional, Cardiac Tissue Engineering: tools and Protocols highlights the foremost concepts, either experimental and computational, for the learn of cardiovascular tissue engineering.

Leonardo da Vinci on the Human Body

"It is a miracle that anybody guy must have saw, learn, and written down quite a bit in one lifetime. " — Kenneth Clark
Painter, sculptor, musician, scientist, architect, engineer, inventor . . . maybe no different determine so absolutely embodies the Western perfect of "Renaissance man" as Leonardo da Vinci. Leonardo used to be now not content material, although, to grasp an inventive approach or list the mechanics of a tool; he was once pushed through an insatiable interest to appreciate why. His writings, pursuits, and musings are uniformly characterised via an incisive, probing, wondering brain. It used to be with this piercing highbrow scrutiny and distinctive medical thoroughness that Leonardo undertook the research of the human body.
This unheard of quantity reproduces greater than 1,200 of Leonardo's anatomical drawings on 215 essentially revealed black-and-white plates. The drawings were prepared in chronological series to exhibit Leonardo's improvement and development as an anatomist. Leonardo's textual content, which accompanies the drawings — occasionally explanatory, occasionally autobiographical and anecdotal — has been translated into English by means of the prestigious clinical professors Drs. O'Malley and Saunders. of their interesting biographical advent, the authors overview Leonardo's place within the old improvement of anatomy and anatomical representation. each one plate is followed through explanatory notes and an review of the person plate and a sign of its courting to the paintings as a whole.
While extraordinary for his or her notable good looks and precision, Leonardo's anatomical drawings have been additionally some distance previous to all modern paintings and scientifically the equivalent of something that seemed good into the 17th century. not like so much of his predecessors and contemporaries, Leonardo took not anything on belief and had religion simply in his personal observations and experiments. In anatomy, as in his different investigations, Leonardo's nice contrast is the really medical nature of his equipment. Herein then are over 1,200 of Leonardo's anatomical illustrations geared up into 8 significant parts of research: Osteological procedure, Myological method, Comparative Anatomy, fearful process, respiration approach, Alimentary procedure, Genito-Urinary approach, and Embryology.
Artists, illustrators, physicians, scholars, academics, scientists, and appreciators of Leonardo's striking genius will locate in those 1,200 drawings the right union of artwork and technology. conscientiously precise and actual of their info, attractive and colourful of their method, they continue to be this present day — approximately 5 centuries later — the best anatomical drawings ever made.

Plant Development

A subgroup of homeobox genes, which play an incredible position within the developmental methods of a number of multicellular organisms, Hox genes were proven to play a severe position in vertebrate development formation. Hox genes should be regarded as normal objective keep an eye on genes-that is, they're comparable in lots of organisms and direct a similar techniques in numerous organisms, from mouse, to fly, to human.

Fungi: Experimental Methods In Biology, Second Edition

Fungi at the moment are on the vanguard of analysis on mechanisms in gene silencing, organic rhythm, mating strategies, biogenesis of intracellular organelles, diversifications to adversarial habitats, constitution of common populations, and speciation. due to their small genomes, fungi are getting used in "systems biology" to appreciate the connections among genes, proteins, and metabolic and signaling pathways.
