From the groundbreaking partnership of W. H. Freeman and Scientific American comes this one-of-a-kind introduction to the science of biology and its impact on the way we live. In Biology for a Changing World, two experienced educators and a science journalist explore the core ideas of biology through a series of chapters written and illustrated in the style of a Scientific American article. Chapters don't just feature compelling stories of real people-each chapter is a newsworthy story that serves as a context for covering the standard curriculum for the non-majors biology course. Updated throughout, the new edition offers new stories, additional physiology chapters, a new Electronic Teachers' Edition, and new pedagogy.
This is the first practical reference book that covers state of the art analytical methods, instrumentation and data processing techniques used for high-throughput analysis of new materials in combinatorial chemistry and materials science beyond the pharmaceutical area. This book demonstrates how these techniques are applied for development of new materials on combinatorial scale and for scale-up of combinatorial materials leads.
The book is written by an international team of contributing authors and consists of 27 chapters that detail the most recent advances in optical imaging and spectroscopy; separations and mass spectrometry; sensors and sensor arrays; analysis of mechanical, electrical, and thermal properties; electrochemical analysis; fabrication of combinatorial libraries; data management, and scale-up of combinatorially discovered materials. High-Throughput Analysis provides multi-disciplinary practitioners and beginners with a treatment of the principles, methodology, and characteristics of instrumentation for high-throughput analysis in order to stimulate further research in this rapidly expanding field.
Included as a special feature is a CD-ROM that demonstrates the ease of use of the techniques described in the book.
