Although books covering experimental design are often written for academic courses taken by statistics majors, most experiments performed in industry and academic research are designed and analyzed by non-statisticians. Therefore, a need exists for a desk reference that will be useful to practitioners who use experimental designs in their work. This book fills that gap. It is written as a guide that can be used as a reference book or as... more...

Widely employed for separating and detecting chemicals in solution, separation techniques are most often applied in tandem, subsequently referred to as hyphenated methods. Hyphenated and Alternative Methods of Detection in Chromatography details the development and application of mass spectral detection techniques coupled with gas phase and liquid phase chromatographies. With contributions from experts in a variety of fields, as... more...

Expert systems allow scientists to access, manage, and apply data and specialized knowledge from various disciplines to their own research. Expert Systems in Chemistry Research explains the general scientific basis and computational principles behind expert systems and demonstrates how they can improve the efficiency of scientific workflows and support decision-making processes. Focused initially on clarifying the fundamental concepts, limits, and... more...

In this fifth edition of his field-defining text, David Silverman, a true guru of qualitative research, walks the reader through the basics of gathering and analyzing qualitative data. The book offers beginners unrivalled hands-on guidance to help them get the best out of a research methods course or research project. New to the fifth edition: A streamlined structure to aid navigation and guide readers smoothly through the research process.... more...

This guide was created especially for individuals performing research with cats whose duties include animal facility management, animal husbandry, regulatory compliance, and technical procedures involved with their research. Basic information and common procedures are presented in detail.


Fragment-based drug discovery is a rapidly evolving area of research, which has recently seen new applications in areas such as epigenetics, GPCRs and the identification of novel allosteric binding pockets. The first fragment-derived drug was recently approved for the treatment of melanoma. It is hoped that this approval is just the beginning of the many drugs yet to be discovered using this fascinating technique. This book is written from a Chemist's... more...

Medical devices are often very complex, but while there are differences in design from one manufacturer to another, the principles of operation and, more importantly, the physiological and anatomical characteristics on which they operate are universal. Introduction to Biomedical Engineering Technology, Second Edition explains the uses and applications of medical technology and the principles of medical equipment management to... more...

The status of many carnivore populations is of growing concern to scientists and conservationists, making the need for data pertaining to carnivore distribution, abundance, and habitat use ever more pressing. Recent developments in “noninvasive” research techniques—those that minimize disturbance to the animal being studied—have resulted in a greatly expanded toolbox for the wildlife practitioner.   Presented in a... more...

Instrumentation is central to the study of physiology and genetics in living organisms, especially at the molecular level. Numerous techniques have been developed to address this in various biological disciplines, creating a need to understand the physical principles involved in the operation of research instruments and the parameters required in using them. Introduction to Instrumentation in Life Sciences fills this need by addressing... more...

As the proceedings of a symposium in honor of Victor Weisskopf at MIT, this volume contains papers by leaders of physics at the time, including M Delbrück, M Gell-Mann, H Bethe, T D Lee, B R Mottelson, W K H Panofsky, E Purcell, J Schwinger, S M Ulam, and others. Some papers address problems in the philosophy of physics, and physics and society, that are timeless in nature. But the symposium had a historical significance, in that it took place at a... more...
