Fundamentals of Biochemical Calculations, Second Edition demystifies the fundamental calculations used in modern biochemistry, cell biology, and allied biomedical sciences. The book encouragesbothundergraduates and scientists to develop an understanding of the processes involved in performing biochemical calculations, rather than rely on memorized formulae. Detailed calculation steps, useful comments, and mathematical hints enhance solved problems throughout... Encouraging the use of the Ratio Method, the author draws attention to its applicability to a wide variety of biochemistry problems with logical consistency and intuitive ease. This entirely revised and updated second edition introduces three new chapters with coverage of laboratory-oriented calculations and data presentation, calculations relating to the emerging techniques in DNA and molecular biology, and applying the Ratio Method to pharmaceutical calculations. New edition adds questions and extra tips in every chapter to help students perform biochemical calculations on their own! By strengthening their understanding of mathematical logic and problem solving skills, Fundamentals of Biochemical Calculations, Second Edition enables students and biochemists to explore a wider range of real-world applications with the ability to tackle increasingly complex problems in biochemistry and related fields.

In the first volume, Fundamental Concepts in Biophysics, the authors lay down a foundation for biophysics study. Rajiv Singh opens the book by pointing to the central importance of “Mathematical Methods in Biophysics”. William Fink follows with a discussion on “Quantum Mechanics Basic to Biophysical Methods”. Together, these two chapters establish some of the principles of mathematical physics underlying many biophysics techniques. Because computer modeling forms an intricate part of biophysics research, Subhadip Raychaudhuri and colleagues introduce the use of computer modeling in “Computational Modeling of Receptor–Ligand Binding and Cellular Signaling Processes”. Yin Yeh and coworkers bring to the reader’s attention the physical basis underlying the common use of fluorescence spectroscopy in biomedical research in their chapter “Fluorescence Spectroscopy”. Electrophysiologists have also applied biophysics techniques in the study of membrane proteins, and Tsung-Yu Chen et al. explore stochastic processes of ion transport in their “Electrophysiological Measurements of Membrane Proteins”. Michael Saxton takes up a key biophysics question about particle distribution and behavior in systems with spatial or temporal inhomogeneity in his chapter “Single–Particle Tracking”. Finally, in “NMR Measurement of Biomolecule Diffusion”, Thomas Jue explains how magnetic resonance techniques can map biomolecule diffusion in the cell to a theory of respiratory control. This book thus launches the Handbook of Modern Biophysics series and sets up for the reader some of the fundamental concepts underpinning the biophysics issues to be presented in future volumes.

Bioanalytical Techniques form an integral part of applied biology and biomedical sciences. The various principles of bioanalytical techniques used in biomedical sciences, environmental studies, life sciences, pharmaceutical analysis, molecular biology, and biotechnological research are comprehensively discussed in this book. Analytical instrumentation is also explained in as concise a manner as possible. Microscopy, centrifugation, chromatography, electrophoresis, spectroscopy, and radioisotope and immunodiagnostic techniques are the main topics focussed in this book. Techniques in molecular biology and recombinant DNA technology have also been described in detail.

Today, enzyme technology, amalgamating enzymology with biotechnology, has become a household name in practically all branches of the contemporary science and technology. The book Principles of Enzyme Technology provides an exhaustive presentation of enzyme technology. The text is organised into four parts out of which the first three are more inclined towards imparting the conceptual aspects of the subject, whereas the fourth part accentuates more on the escalating applications of enzymes in industry, be it food, textile or pharmaceutical. Thus, the book offers a balanced insight into the immense world of enzymes in a single readable volume. HIGHLIGHTS OF THE BOOK • Inclusion of a chapter on Enzyme Engineering and Technology makes the book more future-oriented, highlighting the wonders that the modern science can make. • The textual presentation is very lucid, illustrative and organised in a manner that it is not based solely on the complexity of the subject but also on its usefulness. • Adequate number of references, listing of literature for further reading and problems (both multiple choice and thought based) given at the end of each chapter make the book an ideal tool for learning enzyme technology. Primarily intended as a text for the students of biotechnology, biochemistry and other life science branches, this book will be of immense use to the professionals as well as researchers for teaching and references.
