BioMEMS and Biomedical Nanotechnology, 9780387255644 (0387255648), Springer, 2006
Numerous miniaturized DNA microarray, DNA chip, Lab on a Chip and biosensor devices have been developed and commercialized. Such devices are improving theway many important genomic and proteomic analyses are performed in both research and clinical diagnostic laboratories. The development of these technologies was enabled by a synergistic combination of disciplines that include microfabrication, microfluidics, MEMS, organic chemistry and molecular biology. Some of these newdevices and technologies utilize sophisticated microfabrication processes developed by the semiconductor industry. Microarrays with large numbers of test sites have been developed which employ photolithography combinatorial synthesis techniques or ink jet type printing deposition methods to produce high-density DNA microarrays. Other microarray technologies have incorporated microelectrodes to produce electric fields which are able to affect the transport and hybridization of DNA molecules on the surface of the device. As remarkable as this generation of devices and technological appears, the advent of new nanoscience and nanofabrication techniques will lead to even further miniaturization, higher integration and another generation of devices with higher performance properties. Thus, in some sense these devices and systems will follow a similar evolution as did microelectronics in going from 8 bit, to 16 bit to 32 bit technology. Where feature sizes for integrated components of microelectronic devices is now well into the submicron scale, nanoscale biodevices will soon follow. Likewise, the potential applications for this newgeneration of micro/nanoarray, lab on a chip and nanosensor devices is also broadening into areas of whole genome sequencing, biowarfare agent detection, and remote environmental sensing and monitoring. Today the possibility of making highly sophisticated smart micro/nano scale in-vivo diagnostic and therapeutic delivery devices is being seriously considered.

Contributions reporting on fundamental and applied investigations of the material science, biochemistry, and physics of biomedical microdevices with applications to Genomics and Proteomics. Topics include gene expression profiling utilizing microarray technology; imaging and sensing for gene detection and use in DNA analysis; and coverage of advanced microfluidic devices and the Humane Genome Project.

Early Civilizations in the Americas Reference Library, Volume 1
Many American history books begin with the year 1492 and the discovery of the Caribbean Islands by Spanish explorer Christopher Columbus (1451–1506). For the great civilizations of Mesoamerica and South America, though, 1492 proved to be the beginning of the end of their civilization. The products of thousands of years of history—the...
Art and Science of Dumpster Diving
Art and Science of Dumpster Diving
"Dumpster diving" is an unfortunate term for a noble pursuit: reclaiming and reusing perfectly good things that are being thrown away by wasteful or lazy people. It is also a political act highly frowned upon in materialistic societies because it removes one from obligate consumerism. And John Hoffman has written the ultimate guide...

Machine Learning for Multimedia Content Analysis (Multimedia Systems and Applications)
Machine Learning for Multimedia Content Analysis (Multimedia Systems and Applications)
Challenges in complexity and variability of multimedia data have led to revolutions in machine learning techniques. Multimedia data, such as digital images, audio streams and motion video programs, exhibit richer structures than simple, isolated data items. A number of pixels in a digital image collectively conveys certain visual content to...
