New PDF release: Field, Forces and Flows in Biological Systems

By Alan Grodzinsky

Fields, Forces, and Flows in organic Systems describes the elemental using forces for mass delivery, electrical present, and fluid move as they follow to the biology and biophysics of molecules, cells, tissues, and organs. uncomplicated mathematical and engineering instruments are awarded within the context of biology and body structure. The chapters are dependent in a framework that strikes throughout size scales from molecules to membranes to tissues. Examples through the textual content take care of functions regarding particular organic tissues, cells, and macromolecules. moreover, numerous functions concentrate on sensors, actuators, diagnostics, and microphysical size units (e.g., bioMEMs/NEMs microfluidic units) within which shipping and electrokinetic interactions are severe. This textbook is written for complicated undergraduate and graduate scholars in organic and biomedical engineering and should be a necessary source for interdisciplinary researchers together with biophysicists, actual chemists, fabrics scientists, and chemical, electric, and mechanical engineers looking a standard language at the subject.

Download e-book for kindle: Emergent Computation: Emphasizing Bioinformatics (Biological by Matthew Simon

By Matthew Simon

Emergent Computation emphasizes the interrelationship of different sessions of languages studied in mathematical linguistics (regular, context-free, context-sensitive, and kind zero) with features to the biochemistry of DNA, RNA, and proteins. additionally, elements of sequential machines akin to parity checking and semi-groups are prolonged to the examine of the Biochemistry of DNA, RNA, and proteins. point out is additionally made up of the connection of algebraic topology, knot idea, complicated fields, quaternions, and common turing machines and the biochemistry of DNA, RNA, and proteins.



Emergent Computation attempts to prevent an emphasis upon mathematical abstraction ("elegance") on the fee of ignoring clinical proof identified to Biochemists. Emergent Computation relies totally upon papers released by means of scientists in recognized and revered specialist journals. those papers are established upon present learn. a number of examples of what's now not overlooked to achieve "elegance":


- DNA exists as triple and quadruple strands



- Watson-Crick complementary bases have mismatches


- There could be greater than 4 bases in DNA


- There are greater than sixty-four codons


- there's extra that twenty amino acids in proteins

While Emergent Computation emphasizes bioinformatics purposes, the final bankruptcy experiences mathematical linguistics utilized to components reminiscent of languages present in birds, bugs, clinical purposes, anthropology, etc.



Emergent Computation attempts to prevent pointless mathematical abstraction whereas nonetheless being rigorous. The calls for made upon the information of chemistry or arithmetic is minimized besides. The amassed technical references are precious in itself for added reading.

Read e-book online General Biophysics: v. 1 PDF

By M Volkenstein,I.L. Melamed

basic Biophysics, quantity I offers with the theoretical physics underlying organic phenomena and provides a few pertinent experimental effects. It explores the molecular foundations of biophysics, the thermodynamics of nonequilibrium platforms and membrane shipping, nerve impulses, and mechanochemical procedures.
Comprised of 5 chapters, this quantity starts with an outline of molecular biophysics and the idea that of molecular acceptance, by means of a dialogue of the interplay among antibodies and antigens, the first procedures that verify scent reception, and the significance of intercellular interactions within the life and improvement of multicellular organisms. the following chapters clarify how protein biosynthesis is regulated by means of molecules and the way proteins are biosynthesized in eukaryotic cells, in addition to the appliance of thermodynamics to the research of biophysical difficulties and the coupling of chemical reactions close to equilibrium. The reader is usually brought to the steadiness stipulations of a gentle kingdom, the idea that of entropy for an open procedure, the thermodynamics of the sodium pump, ionic equilibrium among sodium and potassium suggestions separated by means of an lively membrane, the conformational homes of membranes, and the overall phenomenological idea of facilitated shipping and the position of the providers. The ebook concludes with a bankruptcy on organic mechanochemical procedures and their thermodynamics.
This publication is a worthy source for physicists and biophysicists, graduate and postgraduate scholars having the required wisdom of physics, and a person familiar with proteins and nucleic acids.

Get Ökophysik: Plaudereien über das Leben auf dem Land, im PDF

By Werner Nachtigall

Prof. em. Dr. rer. nat. Werner Nachtigall, geb. 1934, warfare als Zoophysiologe und Biophysiker Leiter des Zoologischen Instituts der Universität des Saarlandes in Saarbrücken. In Forschung und Ausbildung hat er sich insbesondere mit Aspekten der Technischen Biologie und Bionik befasst und mit seinen Forschergruppen viele Basisdaten insbesondere zur Ökologie, Physiologie und Physik des Fliegens und Schwimmens aber auch zur Stabilität beispielsweise der Gräser erarbeitet.


Lebewesen überraschen immer wieder durch ihre "Biodiversität", ihre hochspezifischen Ausgestaltungen und Anpassungen. Dabei nützen sie auch alle physikalischen Grundgesetzlichkeiten.


Das zentrale Thema ist die Ortsbewegung, die ja auf dem Boden und in den Fluiden (Wasser, Luft) denkbar unterschiedlich abläuft. Ergänzende Themenkreise sind Körpergröße und Stoffwechsel, Atmung und Atemgastransport, Wärme- und Wasserhaushalt.


Mit dem vorliegenden Buch, das in Zusammenarbeit mit Dr. rer. nat. Alfred Wisser entstanden ist, stellt er solche Forschungsergebnisse in einen größeren Rahmen und berichtet kenntnisreich und allgemein verständlich über die "Ökophysik" des Lebens auf dem Land, im Wasser und in der Luft – mit Gewinn zu lesen von jedem, der sich für Biologie oder für Physik interessiert (oder gar für beides).
