Supports and motivates you as you learn to think scientifically and use the skills of a biologist. Scott Freeman's Biological Science is beloved for its Socratic narrative style, its emphasis on experimental evidence, and its dedication to active learning. In the Fifth Edition, the author team has expanded to include new members --bringing a fresh focus on accuracy and currency, and multiplying the dedication to active learning by six. Research indicates that true mastery of content requires a move away from memorization towards active engagement with the material in a focused, personal way. Biological Science is the first introductory biology text designed to equip you with a strategy to accurately assess your level of understanding, predict your performance, and identify the types of cognitive skills that need improvement. Package consists of: Biological Science, Volume 1, Fifth Edition

While replacing and reducing the use of laboratory animals are integral parts of the 3Rs—replace, reduce, refine—which form the cornerstones of laboratory animal science, biomedical research involving animals remains absolutely essential for the advancement of the medical, veterinary, agricultural, and biological sciences. Building upon the bestselling previous edition, the Handbook of Laboratory Animal Science, Volume III, Third Edition: Animal Models complements volumes I and II of the third edition by completing the task of providing a comprehensive overview of animal models in all biomedical disciplines. The three Rs have been integrated throughout this handbook to promote efficient and humane experimental work with animals. Written by international experts, each chapter focuses on an important subdiscipline of laboratory animal science and can be used as a stand-alone text. This volume contains new chapters for six additional disease animal models: spinal cord injury, cardiovascular diseases, sudden infant death syndrome, developmental disorders, eye diseases, and human cancer. It also presents a new chapter on applying reduction and refinement to animal models. This handbook can be used for undergraduate and postgraduate laboratory animal science courses, and as a handbook for scientists who work with animals in their research, for university veterinarians, for regulators, and for other specialists in laboratory animal science.

A bestseller for nearly 25 years, Analysis of Messy Data, Volume 1: Designed Experiments helps applied statisticians and researchers analyze the kinds of data sets encountered in the real world. Written by two long-time researchers and professors, this second edition has been fully updated to reflect the many developments that have occurred since the original publication. New to the Second Edition Several modern suggestions for multiple comparison procedures Additional examples of split-plot designs and repeated measures designs The use of SAS-GLM to analyze an effects model The use of SAS-MIXED to analyze data in random effects experiments, mixed model experiments, and repeated measures experiments The book explores various techniques for multiple comparison procedures, random effects models, mixed models, split-plot experiments, and repeated measures designs. The authors implement the techniques using several statistical software packages and emphasize the distinction between design structure and the structure of treatments. They introduce each topic with examples, follow up with a theoretical discussion, and conclude with a case study. Bringing a classic work up to date, this edition will continue to show readers how to effectively analyze real-world, nonstandard data sets.

The role of mutations of IDH1 and IDH2, and isocitrate dehydrogenases in malignant gliomas are presented. Metabolic differences in different regions of the glioma tumor are clarified. Various types of imaging modalities, including PET and SPECT, to diagnose gliomas in general and glioblastoma in particular in patients are explained in detail. Both low-grade and high-grade gliomas are discussed. Conventional as well as fluorescent-guided resection techniques for high-grade, recurrent malignant gliomas are detailed.

In many respects,w e understand the structure of the universeb etter than the workings of living cells. Scientists can calculate the age of the Sun and predict when it will cease to shine, but we cannot explain how it is that a human being may live for eighty years but a mouse for only two. We know the complete genomes equenceso f thesea nd many other speciesb, ut we still cannot predict how a cell will behave if we mutate a previously unstudied gene. Stars may be l0a3 times bigger, but cells are more complex, more intricately structured, and more astonishingp roducts of the laws of physicsa nd chemistry.T hrough heredity and natural selection, operating from the beginnings of life on Earth to the presentd ay-that is, for about 20Voo f the ageo f the universe-living cellsh ave been progressively refining and extending their molecular machinery and recording the results of their experiments in the genetic instructions they pass on to their progeny. With each edition of this book, we marvel at the new information that cell biologists have gathered in just a few years. But we are even more amazed and daunted at the sophistication of the mechanisms that we encounter. The deeper we probe into the cell,t he more we reafizeh ow much remainst o be understood. In the days of our innocence, working on the first edition, we hailed the identification of a single protein-a signal receptol say-as a great step forward' Now we appreciate that each protein is generally part of a complexwith many others, working together as a system, regulating one another's activities in subtle ways, and held in specific positions by binding to scaffold proteins that give the chemical factory a definite spatial structure. Genome sequencing has given us virtually complete molecular parts-lists for many different organisms; genetics and biochemistry have told us a great deal about what those parts are capable of individually and which ones interact with which others; but we have only the most primitive grasp of the dynamics of these biochemical systems, with all their interlocking control loops. Therefore, although there are great achievements to report, cell biologistsf ace eveng reaterc hallengesf or the future. In this edition, we have included new material on many topics, ranging from epigeneticsh, istonem odificationss, mall RNAs,a nd comparativeg enomicst,o geneticn oise,c ytoskeletadl lmamics,c ell-cyclec ontrol, apoptosis,s tem cells, and novel cancer therapies. As in previous editions, we have tried above all to give readers a conceptual framework for the mass of information that we now have about cells. This means going beyond the recitation of facts. The goal is to learn how to put the facts to use-to reason, to predict, and to control the behavior of living systems. To help readers on the way to an active understanding, we have for the first time incorporatede nd-of-chapterp roblems,w ritten by Iohn Wilson and Tim Hunt.

In an effort to make the standard Student Edition somewhat more portable, we are providing chapters 2r-25, covering multicellular systems, in electronic (pDF) form on the accompanying disc, while retaining in the printed volume chapters l-20, covering the core of the usual cell biology curriculum.
