Scientific Inference Learning from Data

Scientific Inference Learning from Data

Author: Simon (University of Leicester) Vaughan Format: Hardback Release Date: 19/09/2013

Providing the knowledge and practical experience to begin analysing scientific data, this book is ideal for physical sciences students wishing to improve their data handling skills. The book focuses on explaining and developing the practice and understanding of basic statistical analysis, concentrating on a few core ideas, such as the visual display of information, modelling using the likelihood function, and simulating random data. Key concepts are developed through a combination of graphical explanations, worked examples, example computer code and case studies using real data. Students will develop an understanding of the ideas behind statistical methods and gain experience in applying them in practice. Further resources are available at www.cambridge.org/9781107607590, including data files for the case studies so students can practise analysing data, and exercises to test students' understanding.

Fluorophores Characterization, Synthesis & Applications

Fluorophores Characterization, Synthesis & Applications

Author: Shota Watanabe Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/09/2013

Fluorophores are chemical compounds that can re-emit light upon light excitation and typically contain several combined aromatic groups, or plane or cyclic molecules with several bonds. In this book, the authors present current research in the study of the characteristics, synthesis, and applications of fluorophores. Topics include the application of fluorescent molecular probes in cell biology; fluorescent probes based on upconverting lanthanide nanostructures; aromatic hydrazine-based fluorophores synthesis, spectroscopy and bioapplications; and the concentration dependence of humic acid fluorescence intensity.

Bioinstrumentation

Bioinstrumentation

Author: M. H. Fulekar, Bhawana Pandey Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 30/08/2013

The need for instrumentation in biological sciences began with the development of the telescope and the microscope by Galileo in the early 1600s. The invention of the compound microscope in 1610 gave birth to microscopic anatomy. In the 19th and early 20th century, microscopic anatomy opened up biological chemistry. The research in biology follows this by including more emphasis on process, quantification, problem solving, and open-ended laboratory activities. The measurement of physical, chemical and biological parameters using instruments in any living organisms is known as bioinstrumentation. Modern scientific researches stands on two pillars - ideas and technology. Ideas involve fresh insights, new concepts, and innovative approaches to scientific problems. Technology includes the development and use of complex scientific instruments and techniques. Ideas and technology are complementary and to a large extent interdependent. This volume deals with modern instruments and their applications in chemical biology, with special reference to: UV-VIS-FT-RI Spectroscopy, Fluorescence Spectroscopy, Flame Photometry, Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy Gas chromatography, High Pressure Liquid Chromatography, Thin Layer Chromatography Gas Chromatography, Mass Spectroscopy, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance, Bioreactor Gel Electrophoresis, PCR, Biosensor, Microscopy. Bioinstrumentation will be useful as a textbook and/or reference book for undergraduate and postgraduate students, researchers, scientists, academics, and industrial personnel to help understand basic principles, theory, components and functions, and applications in physics, chemistry and biology.

Digital Microscopy

Digital Microscopy

The previous edition of this book marked the shift in technology from video to digital camera use with microscope use in biological science. This new edition presents some of the optical fundamentals needed to provide a quality image to the digital camera. Specifically, it covers the fundamental geometric optics of finite- and infinity-corrected microscopes, develops the concepts of physical optics and Abbe's theory of image formation, presents the principles of Kohler illumination, and finally reviews the fundamentals of fluorescence and fluorescence microscopy. The second group of chapters deals with digital and video fundamentals: how digital and video cameras work, how to coordinate cameras with microscopes, how to deal with digital data, the fundamentals of image processing, and low light level cameras. The third group of chapters address some specialized areas of microscopy that allow sophisticated measurements of events in living cells that are below the optical limits of resolution.

Science Sifting: Tools For Innovation In Science And Technology

Science Sifting: Tools For Innovation In Science And Technology

Author: Rodney R. Dietert, Janice M. Dietert Format: Hardback Release Date: 24/07/2013

Science Sifting is designed primarily as a textbook for students interested in research and as a general reference book for existing career scientists. The aim of this book is to help budding scientists broaden their capacities to access and use information from diverse sources to the benefit of their research careers.The book describes why the capacity to access and integrate both linear and nonlinear information has been an important historic feature of pivotal scientific breakthroughs. Yet, it is a process that our students are rarely, if ever, taught in universities. This book goes beyond simply describing the features of great scientific breakthroughs. It discusses the basis for accessing and using nonlinear information in the linear research context. It also provides a series of tools and exercises that can be used to enhance access to nonlinear information for application to research and other endeavors.Topics covered include focal points in scientific breakthroughs, the use of concepts maps in research, use of different vantage points, information as patterns, fractals for the scientist, memory storage and access points, and synchronicities. Young researchers need useful tools to help with a more holistic approach to their research careers. This book provides the useful tools to support flexibility and creativity across a long-term research career.Roald Hoffmann - Winner of the 1981 Nobel Prize in Chemistry - has contributed the to Science Sifting.
