Protein interactions : the molecular basis of interactomics (Wiley-VCH 2023)

Edited by Volkhard Helms and Olga V. Kalinina

An outlook on the current challenges in the field and suggestions for future research, Protein Interactions will serve as a fundamental resource for novice researchers who want a systematic introduction to interactomics, as well as for experienced cell biologists and bioinformaticians who want to gain an edge in this exciting new field.

From fractals and cellular automata to biology : information as order hidden within chance (World Scientific 2020)

By Alberto Strumia

The didactical level of exposition, together with many astonishing images and animations, accompanied by the related simple computer programming codes (in Python and POV-Ray languages) make this book an extremely and unique useful tool to test the power of algorithmic information in generating ordered structure models (2D and 3D) like regular geometric shapes, complex shapes like fractals and cellular automata, and biological systems as the organs of a living body.

Diatom microscopy (Wiley 2022)

Edited by Nirmal Mazumder and Richard Gordon

This book on Diatom Microscopy gives an introduction to the wide panoply of microscopy methods being used to investigate diatom structure and biology, marking considerable advances in recent technology including optical, fluorescence, confocal and electron microscopy, surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS), atomic force microscopy (AFM) and spectroscopy as applied to diatoms.

Practical bioinformatics for beginners (World Scientific 2023)

Edited by Lloyd Low and Martti Tammi

This invaluable book provides step-by-step guides to complex topics that make it easy for readers to perform specific analyses, from raw sequenced data to answer important biological questions using machine learning methods. It is an excellent hands-on material for lecturers who conduct courses in bioinformatics and as reference material for professionals.

Microplastics : behavior, fate, and remediation (Bernan Press 2023)

By John Pichtel and Mathew Simpson

Key aspects include: technologies available for removal of microplastics from wastewater and surface water; how various toxins which are sorbed to microplastics adversely affect wastewater treatment processes; technologies at the pilot- and field stage for removal of microplastics from sediment; and the distribution of microplastics in the atmosphere.
