Simulations in Nanobiotechnology

List Price $139.95 / £89 Buy

Until recently, computational studies of biomolecules and nanomaterials have considered the two subjects separately. This book provides insights into computational simulations of biomolecules and nanomaterials together. It also examines novel modeling concepts at the nano-bio-interface, that is, interactions between biomolecules and nanomaterials, such as DNA-wrapped nanotubes, nanobiosensors, and biomimetic materials. Expert contributors from around the world address such important topics as the molecular dynamics of protein translocation, coarse-grained modeling of CNT-DNA interaction, multi-scale modeling of nanowire resonator sensors, and the molecular dynamics simulation of protein mechanics.

Micro and Nano Techniques for the Handling of Biological Samples

List Price $129.95 / £82 Buy

Several micro- and nanomanipulation techniques have emerged in recent decades thanks to advances in micro- and nanofabrication. For instance, the atomic force microscope (AFM) uses a nano-sized tip to image, push, pull, cut, and indent biological material in air, liquid, or vacuum. Using micro- and nanofabrication techniques, scientists can make manipulation tools, such as microgrippers and nanotweezers, on the same length scale as the biological samples. Micro and Nano Techniques for the Handling of Biological Samples reviews the different techniques available to manipulate and integrate biological materials in a controlled manner, either by sliding them along a surface (2-D manipulation), or by gripping and moving them to a new position (3-D manipulation). The advantages and drawbacks are mentioned together with examples that reflect the state-of-the-art in manipulation techniques for biological samples. Thanks to the advances in micro- and nanomanipulation techniques, the integration of biomaterials with physical transducers has been possible, giving rise to new and highly sensitive biosensing devices. Although great progress has been made, challenges are still present. To understand the complex interactions between and inside biological samples, scientists will always be working on improving technologies to manipulate, transport, sort, and integrate samples in different environments. Balanced between simplicity for the beginner and hardcore theory for the more advanced readers, this book is the ideal launching point for sharpening the scientific tools required to address these challenges.

List Price $119.95 / £72.00 Buy

Although nanotechnology applied to medicine has a potentially huge impact on drug delivery and tissue engineering, significant challenges need to be resolved before clinically viable nanomedicine or nanobiomedicine therapies will be available. Skillfully edited, with contributions from an expert panel of researchers, topics covered in Nanotechnology in Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine include:

- Patterning of biomimetic substrates with AFM lithography, primarily focusing on DPN Nanotemplating polymer melts

- Nanotechnology-based approaches in teh treatment of injuries to tendons and ligaments

- Progress in the use of electrospinning processing techniques for fabricating nanofiber scaffolds for neural applications

- Nanotopography techniques for tissue-engineered scaffolds and the effects of nanotopography on cells and tissues

- Vertically aligned TiO2 nanotube surface structuring for optimization of Ti implants utilizing nanotechnology

- Current understanding of the mechanisms by which cells sense nano-scale structure at the molecular level and how this understanding can be useful in developing novel antifouling materials

While there are books available on tissue engineering and nanotechnology and others about regenerative medicine, most do not comprehensively cover applications of nanotechnology to both these areas. Focusing chiefly on drug delivery, tissue engineering, and regenerative medicine, the book uses an application-based approach to relate laboratory-based research to the development of technologies that can be readily adaptable to an industrial environment.
