Recent Advances in Proteomics Research
Editor Sameh Magdeldin
ISBN 978-953-51-2201-2
164 pages, November, 2015

"Proteomics refers to the entire complement of proteins, including modification. This promising discipline has enabled us to study proteins from a massive and comprehensive point of view. The book Recent Advances in Proteomics Research describes in five sections some of the applications of proteomics. This fine research has been written by leading experts worldwide. This book is aimed mainly at those interested in proteins and in the field of proteins, particularly biochemists, biologists, pharmacists, advanced graduate students and postgraduate researchers."

  Integrative Proteomics
Editor Hon-Chiu Eastwood Leung, Subject editors: Tsz-Kwong Man and Ricardo J. Flores
ISBN 978-953-51-0070-6
452 pages, February, 2012
"Proteomics was thought to be a natural extension after the field of genomics has deposited significant amount of data. However, simply taking a straight verbatim approach to catalog all proteins in all tissues of different organisms is not viable. Researchers may need to focus on the perspectives of proteomics that are essential to the functional outcome of the cells. In Integrative Proteomics, expert researchers contribute both historical perspectives, new developments in sample preparation, gel-based and non-gel-based protein separation and identification using mass spectrometry."
  Proteomic Applications in Biology
Editor Joshua L. Heazlewood and Christopher J. Petzold, Subject editors: Tsz-Kwong Man and Ricardo J. Flores
ISBN 978-953-307-613-3
276 pages, January, 2012
"The past decade has seen the field of proteomics expand from a highly technical endeavor to a widely utilized technique. The objective of this book is to highlight the ways in which proteomics is currently being employed to address issues in the biological sciences."

Gene Drives on the Horizon:
Advancing Science, Navigating Uncertainty, and Aligning Research with Public Values
"Research on gene drive systems is rapidly advancing. Many proposed applications of gene drive research aim to solve environmental and public health challenges, including the reduction of poverty and the burden of vector-borne diseases, such as malaria and dengue, which disproportionately impact low and middle income countries. However, due to their intrinsic qualities of rapid spread and irreversibility, gene drive systems raise many questions with respect to their safety relative to public and environmental health. Because gene drive systems are designed to alter the environments we share in ways that will be hard to anticipate and impossible to completely roll back, questions about the ethics surrounding use of this research are complex and will require very careful exploration."

  Functional Genomics
Editor Germana Meroni and Francesca Petrera
ISBN 978-953-51-0727-9
210 pages, September, 2012
"The book provides an overview on basic issues and some of the recent developments in medicinal science and technology. Covering all the aspects involved in such a broad theme as functional genomics and in all its applications would be impossible within the same book. The different chapters represent a brief introduction to the topic, connecting the most promising developments in functional genomics technologies, focusing on specific applications in biomedicine, agro-food technologies and zootechniques."

Metabolomics Metabolomics
Editor Ute Roessner
ISBN 978-953-51-0046-1
374 pages, February, 2012

"Metabolomics is a rapidly emerging field in life sciences, which aims to identify and quantify metabolites in a biological system. Analytical chemistry is combined with sophisticated informatics and statistics tools to determine and understand metabolic changes upon genetic or environmental perturbations. Together with other 'omics analyses, such as genomics and proteomics, metabolomics plays an important role in functional genomics and systems biology studies in any biological science."

Use of Metabolomics to Advance Research on Environmental Exposures and the Human Exposome
Kellyn Betts and Keegan Sawyer
Workshop in Brief (2016); NAP

"Metabolomics, the scientific study of small molecules produced from metabolism (metabolites) is a rapidly expanding area of research that enables scientists to better understand the physiological state of an organism and its response to different types of stimuli, including nutrients and pollutants. Metabolism is the array of chemical reactions that occur within a living organism to support its ability to grow, reproduce, and respond to environmental exposures, among other processes necessary to sustain life. Metabolites can be created in response to chemicals that originate endogenously (inside the body) or exogenously (outside of the body). Preliminary research suggests that metabolomics holds promise to advance understanding of the exposome."

Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) Next Generation Sequencing - Advances, Applications and Challenges
Editor Jerzy K Kulski
ISBN 978-953-51-2240-1
462 pages, January, 2016

"Next generation sequencing (NGS) has surpassed the traditional Sanger sequencing method to become the main choice for large-scale, genome-wide sequencing studies with ultra-high-throughput production and a huge reduction in costs. The NGS technologies have had enormous impact on the studies of structural and functional genomics in all the life sciences. In this book, Next Generation Sequencing Advances, Applications and Challenges, the sixteen chapters written by experts cover various aspects of NGS including genomics, transcriptomics and methylomics, the sequencing platforms, and the bioinformatics challenges in processing and analysing huge amounts of sequencing data."
Epigenomics Epigenetics and Epigenomics
Editor Christopher J. Payne
ISBN 978-953-51-1363-8
218 pages, April, 2014
"The book aims to provide an overview of current knowledge regarding epigenetics and epigenomics. Included are reviews on the role of epigenetics in the development and pathogenesis of the vascular endothelium and nervous system, as well as our current understanding of the potential etiologies of Autism Spectrum Disorders. Additional chapters are devoted to DNA methylation, genomic imprinting and human reproduction."
