by Zvy Dubinsky - InTech , 2013
While photosynthesis fuels all the life supporting processes and activities of all living creatures on Earth, from bacteria though mankind, it also created in the first place, our life supporting oxygenic atmosphere, and keeps maintaining it.
Carbohydrates: Comprehensive Studies on Glycobiology and Glycotechnology
by Chuan-Fa Chang (ed.) - InTech , 2012
Written by experts from the fields of chemistry, glycobiology, microbiology, immunology, botany, zoology, as well as biotechnology. In addition to the basic research, this book also offers much in the way of experiences, tools, and technologies.
by Christopher Wood - BookBoon , 2010
The book introduces physical and biochemical concepts that determine the conformation of a protein. It starts by describing how DNA is converted into proteins and then continues with those factors that influence conformational change in a protein.
Introduction to Clinical Biochemistry: Interpreting Blood Results
by Graham Basten - BookBoon , 2011
This book is a concise introduction to the common blood tests and concepts used in pathology. It is aimed for undergraduate students reading medicine, nursing and midwifery and subjects allied to health such as Biomedical Science.
- Wikibooks , 2012
Structural biochemistry is a branch of the life sciences which combines biology, physics, and chemistry to study living organisms. Biochemistry involves studying the cells, and the functions of its components, since it focuses on biomolecules.
by Deniz Ekinci - InTech , 2012
Chemical biology utilizes chemical principles to modulate systems to either investigate the underlying biology or create new function. This book covers protein purification, enzymology, vitamins, antioxidants, biotransformation, gene delivery, etc.
by E. Rabinowitch, Govindjee - Wiley , 1970
Topics covered: Overall Chemistry of Photosynthesis; Energetics of Photosynthesis; Solar Energy and its Utilization; Structure and Composition of the Photosynthetic Apparatus; Action Spectrum and Quantum Yield of Photosynthesis; etc.
The Photosynthesis of Carbon Compounds
by Melvin Calvin, James Alan Bassham - W.A. Benjamin , 1962
In this book we review the evidence leading to the formulation of the carbon reduction cycle and discuss its quantitative importance. We describe as far as possible the biosynthetic pathways which we believe exist in the chloroplast.
Practical Organic and Biochemistry
by R. Plimmer - Longmans , 1918
This book gives a nearly complete statement of the whole subject. The essential points are illustrated by the practical experiments. The book is intended mainly for medical students, but it contains the essentials for all students of Biology.
Multiscale Simulation Methods in Molecular Sciences
by J. Grotendorst, N. Attig, S. Bluegel, D. Marx - Julich Supercomputing Centre , 2009
Coarse graining of molecular systems and solids, quantum/classical hybrid methods, embedding and multiple time step techniques, creating reactive potentials, multiscale magnetism, adaptive resolution ideas or hydrodynamic interactions are discussed.
Kinetics for Bioscientist
by Peter Klappa - BookBoon , 2009
The subject of reaction kinetics includes analysis of how fast reactions occur, the predictions of concentrations of reactants and products and how reactions can be altered by changing conditions. The book introduces the concept of reaction kinetics.
Micro- and Nano-Transport of Biomolecules
by David Bakewell - BookBoon , 2009
This ebook is generally intended for undergraduate students from chemical, life and physical sciences wanting to find out about the basic properties of biomolecules and how they can be transported in liquids on the micro- to nano-scale.
GRE Biochemistry, Cell and Molecular Biology Test Practice Book
- Educational Testing Service , 2008
This free GRE practice book contains one actual, full-length GRE Biochemistry, Cell and Molecular Biology Test and test-taking strategies. You can become familiar with test structure, content, test instructions and answering procedures.
by Henry Jakubowski , 2009
From the table of contents: introduction to biochemistry; lipid structure; protein structure; carbohydrates; DNA, genomics, and proteomics; binding; transport and kinetics; catalysis; oxidation/phosphorylation; signal transduction.
by Martin F. Chaplin, Christopher Bucke - Cambridge University Press , 1990
This textbook provides an authoritative guide to the principles and practice of the utilization of enzymes in biotechnology. Enzymes have increasingly important applications in the food and pharmaceutical industry, in medicine, and as biosensors.
Essentials of Glycobiology
by Ajit Varki, et al. - Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press , 2008
The book covers the general principles and describes the structure and biosynthesis, diversity, and function of glycans and their relevance to both normal physiologic processes and human disease. An important read for all biomedical scientists.
by Bertini, Gray, Lippard, Valentine - University Science Books , 1994
This book covers material of a course in bioinorganic chemistry for graduate and advanced undergraduate students in chemistry or biochemistry. It should provide students with the background required to follow the research literature in the field.
The Structures of Life
- National Institutes of Health , 2007
This is a short and easy-to-read biochemistry book: proteins as the body's worker molecules, X-ray crystallography, NMR: magnets and radio waves, structure-based drug design: from the computer to the clinic, beyond drug design.
