    QP 517 B56N38 2019

    With the rapid evolution of cyberspace, computing, communications and sensing technologies, organizations and individuals rely more and more on new applications such as fog and cloud computing, smart cities, Internet of Things (IoT), collaborative computing, and virtual and mixed reality environments. Maintaining their security, trustworthiness and resilience to cyber-attacks has become crucial which requires innovative and creative cyber security and resiliency solutions. Computing algorithms have been developed to mimic the operation of natural processes, phenomena and organisms such as artificial neural networks, swarm intelligence, deep learning systems, biomimicry, and more. The amazing characteristics of these systems offer a plethora of novel methodologies and opportunities to cope with emerging cyber challenges.

    This edited book presents a timely review of the fundamentals, latest developments and diverse applications of nature-inspired algorithms in cyber security and resiliency. Topics include bio-inspired collaboration and cyber security; immune-based defense and resiliency; bio-inspired security and resiliency of network traffic; nature inspired machine learning approach for cyber security; nature-inspired algorithms in A.I. for malicious activity detection; DNA-inspired characterization and detection of novel social Twitter spambots; nature-inspired approaches for social network security; bio-inspired cyber-security for smart grid; nature-inspired cryptography and cryptanalysis, and more.


  • Biological inorganic chemistry : a new introduction to molecular structure and function / Robert R. Crichton
    QP531

    Biological Inorganic Chemistry: A New Introduction to Molecular Structure and Function, Third Edition, provides a comprehensive discussion of the biochemical aspects of metals in living systems. The fascinating world of the role of metals in biology, medicine and the environment has progressed significantly since the very successful Second Edition of the book published in 2012. Beginning with an overview of metals and selected nonmetals in biology, the book supports the interdisciplinary nature of this vibrant area of research by providing an introduction to basic coordination chemistry for biologists and structural and molecular biology for chemists.

    Having built this accessible foundation, the book progresses to discuss biological ligands for metal ions, intermediary metabolism and bioenergetics, and methods to study metals in biological systems. The book also covers metal assimilation pathways; transport, storage, and homeostasis of metal ions; sodium and potassium channels and pumps; magnesium phosphate metabolism and photoreceptors; calcium and cellular signaling; the catalytic role of several classes of mononuclear zinc enzymes; the biological chemistry of iron; and copper chemistry and biochemistry.

    In addition, the book discusses nickel and cobalt enzymes; manganese chemistry and biochemistry; molybdenum, tungsten, vanadium, and chromium; non-metals in biology; biomineralization; metals in the brain; metals and neurodegeneration; metals in medicine and metals as drugs; and metals in the environment. Now in its Third Edition , this popular and award-winning resource highlights recent exciting advances and provides a thorough introduction for both researchers approaching the field from a variety of backgrounds, as well as advanced students.


  • Molybdenum and tungsten enzymes. editors: Russ Hille, Carola Schulzke, Martin L. Kirk
    QP601.7
    The book will cover the bio-, inorganic and bioinorganic chemistry of molybdenum containing enzymes, including mononuclear molybdenum-containing enzymes, the complex Fe/Mo enzyme nitrogenase, and also tungsten enzymes. The full range of physicochemical methods that are used to investigate their and function will be covered. There has been no comprehensive book in this area for the past 30 years, despite great progress in our understanding of molybdenum enzymes and relevant inorganic complexes of molybdenum, and as a result the proposed book will both fill an enormous gap in coverage of the field and at the same time document the latest research. The book will be useful for workers in the field of metal-containing enzymes, graduate students and young investigators interested in developing new research programs in the area. It will also serve as a useful reference for researchers outside the field. Cross promotion: Journals: Dalton Transactions and Metallomics . Books: " Iron-Containing Enzymes ", Visser and Kumar, 2011; " Binding, Transport and Storage of Metal Ions in Biological Cells ", Maret and Wedd, 2014.

  • Thermodynamics in bioenergetics Jean-Louis Burgot (University of Rennes 1-France, Rennes, Ile et Vilaine, France)
    QP517.T48

    Thermodynamics in Bioenergetics aims to supply students with the knowledge and understanding of the critical concepts and theories that are needed in the biochemistry and bioenergetics fields. Biochemical reactions highlighting thermodynamics, chemical kinetics, and enzymes are addressed in the text. Author, Jean-Louis Burgot, guides the reader through the starting points, strategy description, and theory results to facilitate their comprehension of the theories and examples being discussed in the book. Also discussed in the text are the notions of Gibbs energy, entropy, and exergonic and endergonic reactions.


  • Statistical optimization of biological systems / Tapobrata Panda, R. Arun Kumar, Thomas Théodore
    QH 323.5 P36 2016

Statistical Optimization of Biological Systems covers the optimization of bioprocess systems in its entirety, devoting much-needed attention to the experimental optimization of biological syst

  • Statistical analysis of fMRI data / F. Gregory Ashby
    QP 376.6 A84 2019

    A guide to all aspects of experimental design and data analysis for fMRI experiments, completely revised and updated for the second edition.

    Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), which allows researchers to observe neural activity in the human brain noninvasively, has revolutionized the scientific study of the mind. An fMRI experiment produces massive amounts of highly complex data for researchers to analyze. This book describes all aspects of experimental design and data analysis for fMRI experiments, covering every step--from preprocessing to advanced methods for assessing functional connectivity--as well as the most popular multivariate approaches. The goal is not to describe which buttons to push in the popular software packages but to help researchers understand the basic underlying logic, the assumptions, the strengths and weaknesses, and the appropriateness of each method.

    The field of fMRI research has advanced dramatically in recent years, in both methodology and technology, and this second edition has been completely revised and updated. Six new chapters cover experimental design, functional connectivity analysis through the methods of psychophysiological interactions and beta-series regression, decoding using multi-voxel pattern analysis, dynamic causal modeling, and representational similarity analysis. Other chapters offer new material on recently discovered problems related to head movements, the multivariate GLM, meta-analysis, and other topics. All complex derivations now appear at the end of the relevant chapter to improve readability. A new appendix describes how to build a design matrix with effect coding for group analysis. As in the first edition, MATLAB code is provided with which readers can implement many of the methods described.

  • A trail called home : tree stories from the Golden Horseshoe / Paul O'Hara
    QK203.O6
    An exploration of trees in the Golden Horseshoe and the stories they tell. Trees define so much of Canadian life, but many people, particularly in the Golden Horseshoe area of Ontario, don't know that much about them. Granted, it is harder here: there are more trees that are native to this area than anywhere else in Canada.The great storytellers of the landscape, trees are looking glasses into the past. They speak of biology, ecology, and geology, as well as natural and human history. Through a greater understanding of trees, we can become more rooted to the land beneath our feet, and our place in it.
