Large-Scale Biomedical Science: Exploring Strategies for Future Research by Committee on Large-Scale Science and Cancer Research National Academies Press; 1 edition | June 19, 2003 | English | ISBN: 0309089123 | 296 pages | PDF | 5 MB
The nature of biomedical research has been evolving in recent years. Technological advances that make it easier to study the vast complexity of biological systems have led to the initiation of projects with a larger scale and scope. In many cases, these large-scale analyses may be the most efficient and effective way to extract functional information from complex biological systems.
Biophotonics: Optical Science and Engineering for the 21st Century by Xun Shen Springer; 2005 edition | February 15, 2006 | English | ISBN: 0387249958 | 222 pages | PDF | 18 MB
It is now well established that all living systems emit a weak but permanent photon flux in the visible and ultraviolet range. This biophoton emission is correlated with many, if not all, biological and physiological functions. There are indications of a hitherto-overlooked information channel within the living system. Biophotons may trigger chemical reactivity in cells, growth control, differentiation and intercellular communication, i.e. biological rhythms.
