Applications in Forensic Proteomics: Protein Identification and Profiling

Edited by Eric D. Merkley

Publication date: November 8, 2019

Proteomics is formally defined as the study of the proteome—the set of all proteins expressed in a cell, tissue, or organism—and its changes with changing environmental conditions. In practice, the term proteomics has come to mean the technologies and techniques used to identify and quantitate (in relative or absolute terms) a very large number of proteins (hundreds to thousands) in a single analysis. As the title of this book suggests, the aim is to give a flavor of the various areas of forensics, broadly defined, in which proteomics is poised to make an important impact.

Understanding Lignocellulose: Synergistic Computational and Analytic Methods

Edited by Micholas Dean Smith

Publication date: September 25, 2019

Lignocellulose is the most abundant source of renewable carbon on Earth and has been used by humanity, in one form or another, for millennia. The need to mitigate climate change is ever more pressing and it is necessary to maximize our utilization of renewable and abundant sources of carbon. One solution is to make use of lignocellulose for humanity’s carbon needs. This book aims to serve as an introduction to advanced analytic and computational approaches for studying and using lignocellulose.

Sex, Smoke, and Spirits: The Role of Chemistry

Edited by Brian Guthrie, Jonathan D. Beauchamp, Andrea Buettner, Stephen Toth, and Michael C. Qian

Publication date: September 25, 2019

Sex, smoke, and spirits: these three nouns are associated with acts of pleasure and indulgence but can equally invoke feelings of impropriety or abstention in some people and certain cultures. If you pick up this book hoping for a romantic thriller, you may be disappointed. Overall, this book presents a snapshot of the latest research covering emerging challenges in chemistry in relation to sexual attraction, smoky flavors, and alcoholic spirits. We hope that researchers in the field will benefit from the range of studies presented in this book and their notable commonalities.

Pesticides in Surface Water: Monitoring, Modeling, Risk Assessment, and Management

Edited by Kean S. Goh, Jay Gan, Dirk F. Young, and Yuzhou Luo

Publication date: March 26, 2019

The increasing use of newer pesticides such as the pyrethroids, neonicotinoids, and fipronil has resulted in their ubiquitous occurrence in surface waters and led to observations of adverse effects on aquatic organisms. The widespread contamination has stimulated active discussions and research on monitoring, aquatic toxicology, risk assessment, modeling, mitigation, and regulatory efforts to minimize contamination and protect environmental integrity. In this book, we cover comprehensively the latest knowledge, information, and technology to measure, assess, model and manage pesticide contamination in surface water.
