Bioscience and the Good Life
by Iain Brassington - Bloomsbury Academic , 2013
This book explores the complex relationship between modern biosciences and human flourishing. Here cognitive enhancement, longevity, and the spectacle of excellence in sports, are examined within the context of what constitutes a life well lived.
by Leonas Lancelot Burlingame - H. Holt & company , 1922
Biology comprises a large amount of information which is susceptible of being organized into a coherent set of principles suitable for presentation to the lay public. This necessarily involves stressing principles rather than factual details.
Guide to Life Science Careers
by Karen Peterson - NPG Education , 2010
The book helps you to explore what career is best for you. Starting with an assessment of who you are and how you work, this guide takes you on a journey that extends from a survey of possible careers through the steps necessary to get there.
- OpenStax College , 2013
Biology is designed for multi-semester biology courses for science majors. It is grounded on an evolutionary basis and includes exciting features that highlight careers in the biological sciences and everyday applications of the concepts at hand.
Fluid Flow at Branching Junctions
by Taha Sochi - arXiv , 2013
The flow of fluids at branching junctions plays important roles in most biological flow systems. The present paper highlights some key issues related to the flow of fluids at these junctions with special emphasis on the biological flow networks.
Concepts of Biology
by Samantha Fowler, et al. - OpenStax College , 2013
This textbook conveys the major themes of biology, such as a foundation in evolution, and features a rich and engaging art program. It is intended for the introductory biology course for non-science majors taught at most two- and four-year colleges.
by Paul Doerder, et al. - Wikibooks , 2013
Contents: Getting Started: Chemical Building Blocks of Life, History and Origin of Life; Cells, Energy and Metabolism; Genetics; Classification of Living Things; Evolution; Tissues and Systems; Additional material: Gallery of Biologists.
by Hiroshi Moriyama (ed.) - InTech , 2013
This book provides convincing reasons which explain sex differences. The somewhat different data on sex differences in the book will offer new ideas not only to life scientists and biologists, but social and cultural scientists as well.
The Principles of Biology
by J.I. Hamaker - P. Blakiston's Sons & Co. , 1913
Part I is designed to acquaint the student with the fundamentals of plant organization and life processes. Part II does the same for animals but in a more thorough method. Part III discusses the most important general biological phenomena.
Stochastic Dynamics in Systems Biology
by V. Wolf, P. Crouzen - Saarland University , 2010
This text focuses on the analysis of stochastic models in systems biology. Knowledge of basic mathematical concepts is a prerequisites for understanding these lectures. The background in systems biology and probability theory is part of the notes.
Biology: Answering the Big Questions of Life
by Rosalyn Hunter - Wikibooks , 2012
This material is based on lectures that the author presented to students in introductory college Biology courses presented at Navarro Community College. The author has tried to make this book easily readable and browseable by anyone interested.
by Thomas Haslwanter, at al. - Wikibooks , 2012
The book presents our sensory system from an engineering and information processing point of view. This provides insight in the performance of our senses. It also provides understanding of how our senses transduce external information into signals.
Aging by Design
by Theodore Goldsmith - Azinet Press , 2011
The book describes the theorists, controversies, history, experimental evidence, and evolution concepts surrounding biological aging theories. Exciting new theories will change the way we think about and attempt to prevent age-related diseases.
Neocybernetics in Biological Systems
by Heikki Hyotyniemi - Helsinki University of Technology , 2006
This report summarizes ten levels of abstraction - from the most elementary to the most general levels when modeling biological systems. The neocybernetic principles can be seen as the key to reaching a holistic view of complex processes in general.
An Introduction to Biological Aging Theory
by Theodore C. Goldsmith - Azinet Press , 2011
An overview of biological aging theories including history, current status, and implications for the future of medicine. Topics include: human mortality as a function of age, aging mechanisms and processes, empirical evidence on aging, and more.
by Jeffrey R. Chasnov - The Hong Kong University of Science & Technology , 2010
This applied mathematics text is primarily for final year mathematics major and minor students. The main emphasis is on mathematical modeling, with biology the sole application area. It is assumed that students have no knowledge of biology.
by Daniel Eberli - InTech , 2010
This book serves as a good starting point for anyone interested in the application of Tissue Engineering. The authors offer a colorful mix of topics, which explain the obstacles and possible solutions for TE applications.
by Chris Tachibana, Andrea White, Norman A. Johnson , 2010
The book was designed for high school biology teachers who want to learn about important new discoveries of the last two decades. It was also designed so teachers could familiarize themselves with research methods that will lead to new discoveries.
by W. M. Smallwood - Allyn and Bacon , 1916
Practical Biology offers a simple, workable, attractive, flexible, and teachable course in Biology. Simplicity is a feature of the book. The language is simple, not technical, and the style is easy, flowing, and colloquial.
Biology for Beginners
by Truman Jesse Moon - H. Holt and company , 1921
This text presents the fundamental facts of elementary biology as clearly and briefly as a reasonable scientific accuracy will allow. The course emphasizes the fact that biology is a unit science, based on the fundamental idea of evolution.
by Tung Luong - Wikibooks , 2009
This is a textbook for teaching the principles and practice of proteomics for undergraduate students in the life sciences. The focus is on the analytical methods and data analysis for protein separation, quantitation and identification.
