Research Handbook on Intellectual Property and the Life Sciences (Hardcover): Duncan Matthews, Herbert Zech Research Handbook on Intellectual Property and the Life Sciences (Hardcover)
Duncan Matthews, Herbert Zech
R4,339 Discovery Miles 43 390 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Intellectual property (IP) is a key component of the life sciences, which is becoming one of the most dynamic and innovative fields of technology today. At the same time, the relationship between IP and the life sciences is raising new public policy dilemmas. The Research Handbook on Intellectual Property and the Life Sciences comprises contributions by leading experts from academia and industry that confront current debates and controversies at the intersection of IP and the life sciences through in-depth analyses of key topics including pharmaceuticals, diagnostics and genes, plant innovations, stem cells, the role of competition law and access to medicines. The first section of this book highlights the importance of IP for medicines and pharmaceuticals, discussing topics including gene patents, and the second section deals with agricultural sector issues such as plant innovations. The third section of the book covers areas of research and development in the life sciences, such as stem cell research, and raises questions about incorporating ethical considerations into patent law. While the primary focus of the book is on Europe and the United States, the fourth section includes country-specific case studies on Australia, Brazil, China, India, Japan, Kenya, South Africa and Thailand to provide a truly international perspective. This Research Handbook is written in an accessible style that will appeal to intellectual property law scholars, practitioners and experts in the life sciences who are interested in the legal implications of IP for the life sciences.

Statistical reasoning and modeling are of critical importance to modern biology. This textbook introduces fundamental concepts from probability and statistics which will pave the way for the student of biology to become a well-rounded scientist. No previous study of probability or statistics is assumed. Calculus topics are not used extensively in this book, though some integration and differentiation are expected. The calculus prerequisite is primarily intended to assure a certain level of mathematical maturity. This book puts emphasis on examples, which are presented to motivate the theory. The presentation style is concise and self-contained, briefly including the mathematical elements that are needed for studying probability and statistics. The examples are relevant to students in the life sciences with interests in genetics, biology, ecology, health, etc. We believe that aspects of probability theory are of biological interest and that probability underlies the theory of inferential statistics. Thus, we place an equal emphasis on probability and statistics which are both essential for solving and understanding many types of biological problems.

Alan J. Cann
R611 R486 Discovery Miles 4 860 Save R125 (20%) Shipped within 7 - 13 working days

Numerical ability is an essential skill for everyone studying the biological sciences, but many students are frightened by the 'perceived' difficulty of mathematics, and are nervous about applying mathematical skills in their chosen field of study. Having taught introductory maths and statistics for many years, Alan Cann understands these challenges, and is aware just how invaluable an accessible, confidence building, textbook could be to the fearful student. Unable to find a book pitched at the right level, that concentrated on why numerical skills are useful to biologists, he wrote his own. The result is Maths from Scratch for Biologists, a highly instructive, informal text that explains step by step how and why you need to tackle maths within the biological sciences.

Features:

  • An accessible, jargon-busting approach to help readers master basic mathematical, statistical and data handling techniques in biology.

  • Numerous end of chapter problems to reinforce key concepts, and encourage students to test their newly acquired skills through practise.

  • A handy, time saving glossary.

  • A supplementary website with numerous problems and self-test exercises. Essential reading for all students within the biological sciences, taking core skills and numeracy courses, and an invaluable reference for those working within academia and industry.

    An understanding of statistical principles and methods is essential for any scientist but is particularly important for those in the life sciences. The field biologist faces very particular problems and challenges with statistics as "real life" situations such as collecting insects with a sweep net or counting seagulls on a cliff face can hardly be expected to be as reliable or controllable as a laboratory-based experiment. Acknowledging the peculiarities of field-based data and its interpretation, Practical Statistics for Field Biology introduces readers to the principles and methods of statistical analysis allowing them to understand research reports in journals, decide on the most appropriate statistical tests for their own problems and finally to analyse and present their findings. To enhance the usefulness of this book, the new edition incorporates the more advanced method of multivariate analysis, introducing the nature of multivariate problems and describing the techniques of principal components analysis, cluster analysis and discriminant analysis which are all applied to biological examples. An appendix detailing the statistical computing packages available has also been included. Practical Statistics for Field biology will be of interest to undergraduates studying ecology, biology, and earth and environmental sciences. In addition, it will be useful for postgraduates who are not familiar with the application of multivariate techniques and practising field biologists working in these areas.

    Review of the First Edition

    "In summary, Practical Statistics for Field Biology is an excellent introductory text for first and second year undergraduate courses in biology." Trends in Ecology & Evolution

    What the lecturers said about the First Edition: "An excellent introductory guide to statistics." "Applicable examples in an understandable text."

    From the leading author in the field, known around the world for his work and his authoritative publications, the contents of this book have been selected so as to reflect their relative importance for biopharmaceuticals. As a result, around half of the book is devoted to protein glycosylation, while the remainder is made up of other modifications, such as carboxylation, hydroxylation, sulfation, amidation and proteolytic processing. A final section addresses the latest trend of engineering the modification pattern to improve a given biopharmceutical, presenting several recent case studies of successful posttranslational engineering.
    This first authoritative overview of the topic is an indispensable guide for drug developers and drug manufacturers with an interest in protein pharmaceuticals.
