The field of Bio-organic Chemistry or Chemical Biology, as it it also called, constitutes a highly interdisciplinary branch of chemistry, beyond the traditional pathways in which chemists and biologists have been working in the past. The topics covered in this book include inter alia: anticancer agents, antioxidants, chemotaxis, carbohydrates, DNA detection and delivery, enzyme structure, enzyme assisted syntheses, fluorescent probes, gene therapy, genomics, inositol phospholipids, inositol phosphates, multivalent ligands, organic syntheses, oxidative stress, photoaffinity labeling techniques, natural products - syntheses and biological activities, phospholipases, proteomics, receptors such as tyrosine kinases, signal transduction phenomena, x-ray crystallography and many more. The book represents an excellent survey of the current stete of the art in an exciting area of interdisciplinary science and supplies an incentive for increased cooperation in Science at the Interface of Chemistry, Biology and Medicine.

The Structure of Biological Science

Category: Philosophy

View: 718

This book provides a comprehensive guide to the conceptual methodological, and epistemological problems of biology, and treats in depth the major developments in molecular biology and evolutionary theory that have transformed both biology and its philosophy in recent decades. At the same time the work is a sustained argument for a particular philosophy of biology that unifies disparate issues and offers a framework for expectations about the future directions of the life sciences. The argument explores differences between autonomist and anti-autonomist views of biology. The result is a vindication of reductionism, but one that is unexpectedly hollow. For it leaves the exponents of the autonomy of biology from physical science with as much as their view of biology really requires - and rather more than the reductionist might comfortably concede. Professor Rosenberg shows how the problems of the philosophy of biology are interconnected and how their solutions are interdependent, However, this book focuses more on the direct concerns of biologists, rather than the traditional agenda of philosophers' problems about biology. This departure from earlier books on the subject results both in greater understanding and relevance of the philosophy of science to biology as a whole.
