Database Annotation in Molecular Biology

Author: Arthur M. Lesk
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
ISBN: 9780470856857
Release Date: 2005-09-01
Genre: Medical

Two factors dominate current molecular biology: the amount of raw data is increasing very rapidly and successful applications in biomedical research require carefully curated and annotated databases. The quality of the experimental data -- especially nucleic acid sequences -- is satisfactory; however, annotations depend on features inferred from the data rather than measured directly, for instance the identification of genes in genome sequences. It is essential that these inferences are as accurate as possible and this requires human intervention. With the recognition of the importance of accurate database annotation and the requirement for individuals with particular constellations of skills to carry it out, annotators are emerging as specialists within the profession of bioinformatics. This book compiles information about annotation -- its current status, what is required to improve it, what skills must be brought to bear on database curation and hence what is the proper training for annotators. The book should be essential reading for all people working on biological databases, both biologists and computer scientists. It will also be of interest to all users of such databases, including molecular biologists, geneticists, protein chemists, clinicians and drug developers.

Molecular Biotechnology

Author: Channarayappa
Publisher: CRC Press
ISBN: STANFORD:36105131773017
Release Date: 2007-05-30
Genre: Medical

Providing a strong base in this emerging and highly promising field, Molecular Biotechnology: Principles and Practice strikes a balance between two important aspects of the science - the theory of molecular biology and the experimental approach to the study of biological processes. The main feature of this book is that it covers a wide range of molecular techniques in biotechnology and is designed to be a student- and teacher-friendly textbook. Each technique is described conceptually, followed by a detailed experimental account of the steps involved. The book can also serve as reference to the interested reader who is venturing into the field of biotechnology for the first time.

Principles and Techniques of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology

Author: Keith Wilson
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
ISBN: 9781107393493
Release Date: 2010-03-04
Genre: Science

This best-selling undergraduate textbook provides an introduction to key experimental techniques from across the biosciences. It uniquely integrates the theories and practices that drive the fields of biology and medicine, comprehensively covering both the methods students will encounter in lab classes and those that underpin recent advances and discoveries. Its problem-solving approach continues with worked examples that set a challenge and then show students how the challenge is met. New to this edition are case studies, for example, that illustrate the relevance of the principles and techniques to the diagnosis and treatment of individual patients. Coverage is expanded to include a section on stem cells, chapters on immunochemical techniques and spectroscopy techniques, and additional chapters on drug discovery and development, and clinical biochemistry. Experimental design and the statistical analysis of data are emphasised throughout to ensure students are equipped to successfully plan their own experiments and examine the results obtained.

Molecular Biology in Medicine

Author: Timothy M. Cox
Publisher: Wiley-Blackwell
ISBN: 0632027851
Release Date: 1997-05-12
Genre: Medical

This text fuses science and medicine, clearly demonstrating the clinical relevance of microbiology, and the way in which this rapidly emerging discipline is beginning to reshape the way disease is investigated and how patients are screened, diagnosed and treated. The first part of the book summarises knowledge of basic cell biology with clear and lucid descriptions of how genes work and how the study of human variation and heredity is applied to medical practice. A detailed analysis of Heamophilia A provides a paradigm for the use of molecular biology in the study and treatment of inherited disease. The second section takes the reader through the systematic approaches to studying genes, and provides an entry point for clinicians and researchers who wish to investigate a disease themselves or interpret the experiments of others. The third section shows how molecular biology has been used in medical research to investigate the mechanisms of common diseases; and the final section identifies areas where molecular biology has been used to diagnose and treat disease. It looks at the principles and practice of gene therapy and the design and production of recombinant products for medical use. The book closes with a description of how molecular biology has impinged upon prenatal diagnosis, and the ethical considerations which this raises.

Principles of Molecular Biology

Author: Burton E. Tropp
Publisher: Jones & Bartlett Publishers
ISBN: 9781449647919
Release Date: 2012-12-14
Genre: Science

Includes access to the Student Companion Website with every print copy of the text. Written for the more concise course, Principles of Molecular Biology is modeled after Burton Tropp's successful Molecular Biology: Genes to Proteins and is appropriate for the sophomore level course. The author begins with an introduction to molecular biology, discussing what it is and how it relates to applications in "real life" with examples pulled from medicine and industry. An overview of protein structure and function follows, and from there the text covers the various roles of technology in elucidating the central concepts of molecular biology, from both a historical and contemporary perspective. Tropp then delves into the heart of the book with chapters focused on chromosomes, genetics, replication, DNA damage and repair, recombination, transposition, transcription, and wraps up with translation. Key Features: - Presents molecular biology from a biochemical perspective, utilizing model systems, as they best describe the processes being discussed -Special Topic boxes throughout focus on applications in medicine and technology -Presents "real world" applications of molecular biology that are necessary for students continuing on to medical school or the biotech industry -An end-of-chapter study guide includes questions for review and discussion -Difficult or complicated concepts are called-out in boxes to further explain and simplify

Molecular Imaging

Author: Ralph Weissleder
Publisher: PMPH-USA
ISBN: 1607950057
Release Date: 2010
Genre: Medical

The field of molecular imaging of living subjects have evolved considerably and have seen spectacular advances in chemistry, engineering and biomedical applications. This textbook was designed to fill the need for an authoritative source for this multi-disciplinary field. We have been fortunate to recruit over 80 leading authors contributing 75 individual chapters. Given the multidisciplinary nature of the field, the book is broken into six different sections: "Molecular Imaging technologies", "Chemistry", "Molecular Imaging in Cell and Molecular Biology", "Applications of Molecular Imaging", "Molecular Imaging in Drug Evaluation" with the final section comprised of chapters on computation, bioinformatics and modeling. The organization of this large amount of information is logical and strives to avoid redundancies among chapters. It encourages the use of figures to illustrate concepts and to provide numerous molecular imaging examples.
