Catalyzing Inquiry at the Interface of Computing and Biology

Advances in computer science and technology and in biology over the last several years have opened up the possibility for computing to help answer fundamental questions in biology and for biology to help with new approaches to computing. Making the most of the research opportunities at the interface of computing and biology requires the active participation of people from both fields. While past attempts have been made in this direct...

Tapping Molecular Wilderness: Drugs from Chemistry-Biology–Biodiversity Interface
PDF
Tapping Molecular Wilderness

"Writing a popular science book is more challenging than writing a professional one for the technical audience. One needs to be scientifically rigorous, yet speak in the language of the school student and the ‘lay’ public. There can be no threatening equations or complex chemical pathways, yet one should convey the message in a lucid manner. Professor Yuthavong carries it off with ease and elan. He has chosen the word "wilderness" de...

Forerunners of Mammals: Radiation Histology Biology

About 320 million years ago a group of reptiles known as the synapsids emerged and forever changed Earth’s ecological landscapes. This book discusses the origin and radiation of the synapsids from their sail-backed pelycosaur ancestor to their diverse descendants, the therapsids or mammal-like reptiles, that eventually gave rise to mammals. It further showcases the remarkable evolutionary history of the synapsids in the Karoo Basin o...
