BIOS Instant Notes in Biochemistry, 4th edition, continues the tradition of previous editions in being an effective learning resource for students. Terminology, protein structure, protein function, studying proteins, and PCR-related technology have been updated but as with previous editions, the focus is to clearly and concisely present only essential topics.
This text is an introduction to the fundamental behaviour of matter and energy in living and nonliving systems. It introduces basic concepts and key ideas while providing opportunities for students to learn reasoning skills and a new way of thinking about their environment.
Suitable for students interested in what are arguably the most profoundly important issues - from the basics of safe and sustainable food and fiber production to big picture topics such as energy, ecology, and environmental quality.
An Introduction to Bioinformatics introduces students to the immense power of bioinformatics as a set of scientific tools. The ideal text for those new to the subject, it focuses on how bioinformatics tools can be applied, and what they can tell us about biological systems, without requiring detailed prior knowledge.
Covers the biochemistry of interactions between animals, plants and the environment. This book includes such diverse subjects as plant adaptations to soil pollutants and the effects of plant toxins on herbivores. The intriguing dependence of the Monarch butterfly on its host plants is chosen as an example of plant-animal coevolution in action.
This best-selling textbook, known for its prominent authorship, exposes students to the landmark experiments in genetics, teaching them how to analyze experimental data and draw their own conclusions based on scientific thinking. The 10th edition has been updated with key advances in genetics and cutting-edge experiments.
This book provides a clearly written introduction to plant pathology. It includes integrated coverage of the molecular biology of plant disease, emphasizing the importance of plant diseases by showing how they can threaten crops.
Explains how to carry out successful projects and produce informative reports in biological experiments and surveys. This work offers an explanation of elementary probability. It emphasizes on experimental design and data simulation.
Accessible and clearly presented, Introduction to Veterinary Genetics provides a succinct introduction to the aspects of genetics relevant to animal diseases and production. Now in its third edition, this is the only introductory level textbook on genetics that has been written specifically for veterinary and animal science students.
