Kin Recognition in Protists and Other Microbes

Kin Recognition in Protists and Other Microbes is the first volume dedicated entirely to the genetics, evolution and behavior of cells capable of discriminating and recognizing taxa (other species), clones (other cell lines) and kin (as per gradual genetic proximity). It covers the advent of microbial models in the field of kin rec...

How Organic Pollutants Poison Our Health

The human body is made up of quadrillions of individual cells, and each cell contains over a billion proteins. Some of these are long-lived and some are manufactured and degraded daily. In order to pack so many proteins into one cell, they are folded into intricate, complex shapes. The folded, three-dimensional shapes of proteins a...

Breathing Life into Biology

This book shows that contemporary biology is focused almost exclusively on genes and molecules. This approach, despite giving rise to exciting developments, such as DNA sequencing and genetic engineering, does not take into account the living organisms themselves. This text redresses this imbalance: firstly, by providing a sketch o...
