Biology is a critical application area for engineering analysis and design, and students in engineering programs must be well-versed in the fundamentals of biology as they relate to their field. Biology for Engineers is an introductory text that minimizes unnecessary memorization of connections and classifications and instead emphasizes concepts, technology, and the utilization of living things. Whether students are headed toward a bio-related engineering degree or one of the more traditional majors, biology is so important that all engineering students should know how living things work and act. Classroom-tested at the University of Maryland, this comprehensive text introduces concepts and terminology needed to understand more advanced biology literature. Filled with practical detailed examples, the book presents: Scientific principles relevant to biology that all engineers must know A discussion of biological responses from the perspective of a broad range of fields such as psychology, human factors, genetics, plant and animal physiology, imaging, control systems, actuary, and medicine A thorough examination of the scaling of biological responses and attributes A classification of different types of applications related to biological systems Tables of useful information that are nearly impossible to find elsewhere A series of questions at the end of each chapter to test comprehension Emphasizing the ever-present interactions between a biological unit and its physical, chemical, and biological environments, the book provides ample instruction on the basics of physics, chemistry, mathematics, and engineering. It brings together all of the concepts one needs to understand the role of biology in modern technology.

"New Biology for Engineers and Computer Scientists focuses on the essentials of new biology, namely, genes and proteins, cells as the basic units of life, cell division, and animal development. The book introduces cells as robust complex networks of genes and proteins and adopts a systems view to discuss communication of cells with other cells and with the external environment. In keeping with the "hands on" approach common in engineering classes, assignment sections in each chapter illustrate the link between biology and engineering."--BOOK JACKET.

Understanding the molecular underpinnings of life is a task requiring insight from multiple disciplines. In that likeness, biologists have moved toward a systemic approach drawing from the expertise of computational scientists, chemists, engineers, and mathematicians. This collaborative approach requires translation of biological semantics into common language so that the molecular mechanisms can be decoded to promote health, design devices, and preserve environmental homeostasis. This book provides context for biological forms and functions by starting at the molecular level then building outward to include trends in biomedical technology, evolutionary impact, and the lasting implications for our biosphere. In that likeness, biological concepts underlie most wastewater treatment and provide foundation for the hazardous waste treatment being done today. Furthermore, the relationship between biology and geology is starting to emerge as a key relationship for self-healing concrete and reinforcement protection within concrete.

This comprehensive work discusses novel biomolecular surfaces that have been engineered to either control or measure cell function at the atomic, molecular, and cellular levels. Each chapter presents real results, concepts, and expert perspectives of how cells interact with biomolecular surfaces, with particular emphasis on interactions within complex mechanical environments such as in the cardiovascular system. In addition, the book provides detailed coverage of inflammation and cellular immune response as a useful model for how engineering concepts and tools may be effectively applied to complex systems in biomedicine. -Accessible to biologists looking for new ways to model their results and engineers interested in biomedical applications -Useful to researchers in biomaterials, inflammation, and vascular biology -Excellent resource for graduate students as a textbook in cell & tissue engineering or cell mechanics courses

Protein Engineering Protocols considers the general, but not mutually exclusive, strategies for protein engineering. The first is known as rational design, in which the scientist uses detailed knowledge of the structure and function of the protein to make desired changes. The second strategy is known as directed evolution. This volume provides a comprehensive guide to the methods used at every stage of the engineering process. It combines a thorough theoretical foundation with detailed protocols and will be invaluable to all research workers in the area, from graduate students to senior investigators.
