Signature in the Cell: DNA and the Evidence for Intelligent Design

“Signature within the mobile is a defining paintings within the dialogue of life’s origins and the query of even if existence is a made from unthinking subject or of an clever brain. if you happen to disagree with identification, the strong case Meyer provides can't be overlooked in any sincere debate. in the event you should be sympathetic to identification, at the fence, or purely curious, this ebook is an interesting, eye-opening, and sometimes eye-popping learn” — American Spectator Named one of many most sensible books of 2009 through the days Literary complement (London), this arguable and compelling booklet from Dr.

BSCS Biology: A Molecular Approach, Student Edition

A complete, inquiry-based method of biologyBSCS Biology: A Molecular method (Blue model) demanding situations proficient and honor scholars to imagine scientifically, to combine options, to research information, and to discover complicated concerns. This research-based software, constructed with investment from the nationwide technological know-how origin, helps an inquiry method of biology.

The Song of the Dodo: Island Biogeography in an Age of Extinctions

In Darwin's time, island biogeography used to be the technological know-how that opened Victorian minds to the beauty of evolution. this present day with the entire world's wild panorama being chopped into island-like fragments, it is the technology of jeopardy and extinction. This booklet combines technological know-how, old narrative and go back and forth.

Fragment Based Drug Design, Volume 493: Tools, Practical Approaches, and Examples (Methods in Enzymology)

There are lots of very good stories on fragment-based drug discovery (FBDD), yet there are so far no hand-holding publications or protocols with which you possibly can embark in this orthogonal method of supplement conventional excessive throughput screening methodologies. This tools in Enzymology quantity deals the instruments, useful methods, and hit-to-lead examples on find out how to behavior FBDD displays.

The classification of those extremophiles is demanding, as they generally inhabit environments excessive in salinity, with severe temperatures in addition to variable acidity and strain. furthermore, whilst those extremophiles are remoted, they're in most cases grown less than mesophilic stipulations in learn laboratories. Herein, the authors talk about the isolation, bioactivity, and preclinical evaluate of bioactive normal items produced by means of either culturable and unculturable marine microorganisms, demonstrating that the marine global is an unexploited resource of recent chemical entities. significantly, there are seven FDA-approved marine-derived medications, five of that are derived from mutualistic interactions among microorganisms and marine invertebrates. in line with their luck within the clinics, there was an immense specialize in average product isolation from marine environments. As of January 2014, out of the 36 marine-derived brokers in part I–III scientific trials, 31 are derived from microorganisms, demonstrating the facility of marine extremophiles to be inexhaustible assets of drug applicants. additionally, as ecological niches evolve, those extremophiles also will evolve and be targeted resources of novel pharmacophores.
