Work at the biology bench requires an ever-increasing knowledge of mathematical methods and formulae. In Lab Math,Dany Spencer Adams has compiled the most common mathematical concepts and methods in molecular biology, and provided clear, straightforward guidance on their application to research investigations. Subjects range from basics such as scientific notation and measuring and making solutions, to more complex activities like quantifying and designing nucleic acids and analyzing protein activity. Tips on how to present mathematical data and statistical analysis are included. A reference section features useful tables, conversion charts and “plug and chug” equations for experimental procedures. This volume is an excellent, structured source of information that in many laboratories is often scattered and informally organized.

Laboratory Investigations in Molecular Biology presents well-tested protocols in molecular biology that are commonly used in currently active research labs. It is an ideal laboratory manual for college level courses in molecular biology. Because of the modular organization of the manual, laboratory courses can be assembled that would be ideal for science professionals, graduate students, undergraduate students and even advanced high school students in AP courses. The manual is also intended to be useful as a laboratory "bench reference". The experiments are designed to guide students through realistic research projects and to provide students with instruction in methods and approaches that can be immediately translated into research projects conducted in modern research laboratories. Although these experiments have been conducted and optimized over 20 years of teaching the New England Biolabs Molecular Biology Summer Workshops, they are real research projects, not "canned" experiments. Based on extensive teaching experience using these protocols, the authors have found that conducting these experiments as described in these protocols serves to effectively instruct students and science professions in the basic methods of molecular biology. An additional unique feature is that the protocols described in the manual are accompanied by available reagent kits that provide quality-tested, pre-packaged reagents to ensure the successful application of these protocols in a laboratory course setting.

The biological sciences cover a broad array of literature types, from younger fields like molecular biology with its reliance on recent journal articles, genomic databases, and protocol manuals to classic fields such as taxonomy with its scattered literature found in monographs and journals from the past three centuries. Using the Biological Literature: A Practical Guide, Fourth Edition is an annotated guide to selected resources in the biological sciences, presenting a wide-ranging list of important sources. This completely revised edition contains numerous new resources and descriptions of all entries including textbooks. The guide emphasizes current materials in the English language and includes retrospective references for historical perspective and to provide access to the taxonomic literature. It covers both print and electronic resources including monographs, journals, databases, indexes and abstracting tools, websites, and associations—providing users with listings of authoritative informational resources of both classical and recently published works. With chapters devoted to each of the main fields in the basic biological sciences, this book offers a guide to the best and most up-to-date resources in biology. It is appropriate for anyone interested in searching the biological literature, from undergraduate students to faculty, researchers, and librarians. The guide includes a supplementary website dedicated to keeping URLs of electronic and web-based resources up to date, a popular feature continued from the third edition.

Cytogenetics is a segment of the evolving cytogenomic branch of genetics that explores the genetic makeup of a cell, in particular chromosomes both in metaphase and in interphase cycles, as well as at the molecular level. It utilizes an assortment of procedures to illuminate both the full complement of chromosomes and a targeted region within a specific chromosome. These investigative tools include routine analysis of G-banded chromosomes, specialized stains that address specific chromosomal structures, and molecular probes, such as fluorescence in situ hybridization and chromosome microarray analysis, which employ a variety of methods to highlight a region as small as a single, specific genetic sequence under investigation. The AGT Cytogenetics Laboratory Manual, Fourth Edition offers a comprehensive treatment of the diagnostic tests offered by this clinical laboratory environment and explains the scientific theories behind those procedures. One of the most valuable assets is its rich compilation of laboratory-tested protocols currently being used in leading laboratories, along with practical advice for nearly every area of interest to cytogeneticists. In addition to covering essential topics that have been the backbone of cytogenetics for over 60 years, such as the basic components of a cell, use of a microscope, human tissue processing for cytogenetic analysis (prenatal, constitutional, and neoplastic), laboratory safety, and the mechanisms behind chromosome rearrangement and aneuploidy, this edition introduces new and expanded chapters that reflect the intuitive experience of its authors. Some of these new topics include a unique collection of chromosome heteromorphisms; clinical examples of genomic imprinting; an example-driven overview of chromosomal microarray; mathematics specifically geared for the cytogeneticist; usage of ISCN's cytogenetic language; tips for laboratory management; examples of laboratory information systems; a collection of Internet and library resources; and a special chapter on animal chromosomes for the research and zoo cytogeneticist. The range of topics is thus broad yet comprehensive, offering the student with a resource that teaches the procedures performed in the cytogenetics laboratory environment, and the laboratory professional with a peer-reviewed reference that explores the multiple facets behind each of these procedures. Topic coverage is rich in detail, yet presented with the student in mind, making it a useful resource for researchers, clinicians, and laboratory professionals, as well as students in a university or medical school that offers introductory or laboratory-related courses exploring cytogenetics' role within medical genetics. Reviews for the third edition: "A collection of protocols and explanations for cytogenetic techniques from the common to the peculiar." "An excellent book. Looking forward to an updated version."

Für die näherungsweise Lösung von Randwertproblemen zweiter Ordnung wird eine einheitliche Theorie der Finiten Elemente Methode und der Randelementmethode präsentiert. Neben der Stabilitäts- und Fehleranalysis wird vor allem auf effiziente Lösungsverfahren eingegangen. Für die Diskretisierung der auftretenden Randintegraloperatoren werden schnelle Randelementmethoden (Wavelets, Multipol, algebraische Techniken) mit der Darstellung durch partielle Integration verknüpft. Durch die Kopplung von FEM und BEM mittels Gebietszerlegungsmethoden können gekoppelte Randwertprobleme in komplexen Strukturen behandelt werden. Numerische Beispiele illustrieren die theoretischen Aussagen.

Lindemann) "Viele Mathematiker glauben, daß man die Mathematik auf die Gesetze der formalen Logik zurückführen kann. Unerhörte Anstrengungen wurden zu diesem Zwecke unternommen; zur Erreichung des bezeichneten Zieles scheute man sich z.B. nicht, die historische Ordnung in der Entstehung unserer Vorstellungen umzukehren, und man suchte das Endliche durch das Unendliche zu erklären. Für alle, welche das Problem ohne Voreingenommenheit angereifen, glaube ich im folgenden gezeigt zu haben, daß diesem Bestreben eine trügerische Illusion zugrunde liegt. Wie ich hoffe, wird der Leser die Wichtigkeit der Frage verstehen [...]." Henri Poincaré
