Bioinformatics

This book provides up-to-date descriptions of the various areas of applied bioinformatics, from the analysis of sequence, literature, and functional data to the function and evolution of organisms. Bioinformatics is a relatively new field of research. It evolved from the requirement to process, characterize, and apply the information being produced by DNA sequencing technology. The production of DNA sequence data continues to grow exponentially. At the same time, improved bioinformatics such as faster DNA sequence search methods have been combined with increasingly powerful computer systems to process this information. Methods are being developed for the ever more detailed quantification of gene expression, providing an insight into the function of the newly discovered genes, while molecular genetic tools provide a link between these genes and heritable traits. Genetic tests are now available to determine the likelihood of suffering specific ailments and can predict how plant cultivars may respond to the environment. The steps in the translation of the genetic blueprint to the observed phenotype is being increasingly understood through proteome, metabolome and phenome analysis, all underpinned by advances in bioinformatics. Bioinformatics is becoming increasingly central to the study of biology, and a day at a computer can often save a year or more in the laboratory. The volume is intended for graduate-level biology students as well as researchers who wish to gain a better understanding of applied bioinformatics and who wish to use bioinformatics technologies to assist in their research. The volume would also be of value to bioinformatics developers, particularly those from a computing background, who would like to understand the application of computational tools for biological research. Each chapter would include a comprehensive introduction giving an overview of the fundamentals, aimed at introducing graduate students and researchers from diverse backgrounds to the field and bring them up-to-date on the current state of knowledge. To accommodate the broad range of topics in applied bioinformatics, chapters have been grouped into themes: gene and genome analysis, molecular genetic analysis, gene expression analysis, protein and proteome analysis, metabolome analysis, phenome data analysis, literature mining and bioinformatics tool development. Each chapter and theme provides an introduction to the biology behind the data describes the requirements for data processing and details some of the methods applied to the data to enhance biological understanding.

Coping with Diabetes in Childhood and Adolescen...
€ 9.95 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Diabetes is one of the commonest chronic conditions of childhood, and is on the increase. It is estimated that globally more than 400,000 children aged 14 and under have diabetes; in England and Wales about 15 per 100,000 children develop diabetes each year, and in Scotland 25 per 100,000. More than 90% of affected children have type 1 diabetes. A diagnosis of diabetes is a trauma for a family. This book aims to help families through this and is aimed at parents, and at teenagers who want to know more about their condition. It could also be valuable for healthcare workers and teachers. It gives a detailed explanation of the control of blood sugar and diabetes, and how diabetes is monitored and controlled by means of diet and insulin. Subjects covered include:Type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes and why they are both on the increaseCauses including obesity-related, genetic and viralDiet for the child and familyLifestyle factors and staying wellTypes of insulin and their use in controlling diabetesInfants, toddlers and schoolchildrenTeenagers and diabetes Diabetic emergencies and complications 1.

The Foundations of Iridology (eBook, ePUB)
€ 28.26 *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A complete guide to decoding the iris to reveal health predispositions for prevention and early treatment • Details the fundamental reflex signs of iridology and how to identify constitutional strengths and weaknesses in the stroma, pigments, and capillaries of the eyes as well as read energy patterns in pupil tone • Explores the history and development of iridology from the 18th century to today • Includes analysis of real case studies with full-color photos and illustrations The iris of your eye is a personal and unique identifier that expresses much more about us than we can imagine. Through detailed observation of the irises´ stroma, pigments, and capillaries, you can determine a person´s constitutional strengths and weaknesses and gain insight into their genetic predisposition to certain illnesses as well as preventive and treatment options that would be most effective. By reading the iris, practitioners of natural medicine can interpret the signs that reveal a client´s lifestyle choices and use this knowledge to make enlightened decisions regarding the client´s health plan and how to help them realize their full potential. In this full-color guide, Gustau Pau, an iridologist with more than 35 years of experience, details the chromatic scale and signs expressed in the eyes and how to use them to identify organs and their function as well as susceptibility to specific ailments. He explores the history and development of iridology from Hildegard von Bingen´s work on healing to 18th-century European scientists, including Ignaz von Peczely, the father of modern iridology. He reveals recent iridology developments on identifying genetically inherited physical traits, explaining how individuals can use this insight to make nutritional and lifestyle choices that will offset inherited weaknesses and bolster strengths. Focusing on the digestive system, he shows how the pupillary zone can reveal digestive function and demonstrates how diet is responsible for causing many diseases. The author also explores miasmas in the eyes, includes methods for reading energy patterns in pupil tone, and offers the scientific explanation for the old contention that the ´´eyes are the windows of the soul.´´ Illustrating the fundamental signs that iridologists use for reference, Pau provides sample iridographies and real case studies with photos and diagrams. Explaining how scientific research on the eye has not yet caught up with the innovations of iridology, he shows how the eyes reveal both our internal state and future health and have a much broader role in the body that we are only now just discovering.

Palacio, is a children´s novel about a bright, kind, intuitive 10-year-old who has severe facial abnormalities. August ´´Auggie´´ Pullman was born with a rare genetic disorder. He has endured a lot in his short life, including 27 surgeries and the cruelty of strangers who recoil from his unusual appearance. But nothing could quite prepare him for the challenge he must now face: his first year of middle school. Until recently, August, who lives in Manhattan, led a fairly sheltered life with his devoted parents and his 15-year-old sister, Via. He´s been homeschooled for his entire life, but his parents think it´s time to send him out into the world. The idea frightens Auggie, but it also excites him. Though the school year hasn´t yet started, he agrees to visit his new campus, Beecher Prep, to meet the principal, Mr. Tushman. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Gilboe.
