Historically rich in novel, subtle, often controversial ideas, Molecular Bi-
ology has lately become heir to a huge legacy of standardized data in the
form of polynucleotide and polypeptide sequences. Fred Sanger received
two, well deserved Nobel Prizes for his seminal role in developing the basic
technology needed for this reduction of core biological information to one
After studying this chapter, you should be able to accomplish the following outcomes: Distinguish between matter, elements, and atoms; name the six elements that are basic to life; describe the structure of an atom; tell why an atom can have isotopes; give examples of how low levels and high levels of radiation can each be helpful;...
The GRE Subject Tests are designed to help graduate
school admission committees and fellowship sponsors
assess the qualifications of applicants in specific fields
of study. The tests also provide you with an assessment
of your own qualifications.
Scores on the tests are intended to indicate
knowledge of the subject matter emphasized in many
undergraduate programs as preparation for graduate
study. Because past achievement is usually a good
indicator of future performance, the scores are helpful
in predicting success in graduate study.

Finance has become increasingly more quantitative, drawing on techniques in probability and statistics that many finance practitioners have not had exposure to before. In order to keep up, you need a firm understanding of this discipline.
Probability and Statistics for Finance addresses this issue by showing you how to apply quantitative methods to portfolios, and in all matter of your practices, in a clear, concise manner. Informative and accessible, this guide starts off with the basics and builds to an intermediate level of mastery. ...
Endocrinology: Basic and Clinical Principles, Second
Edition aims to provide a comprehensive knowledge
base for the applied and clinical science of
endocrinology. The challenge in its presentation was
to produce a volume that was timely, provided integration
of basic science with physiologic and clinical principles,
and yet was limited to 500 pages. This length
makes the volume suitable as a text; and the timeliness
we have striven for allows the book to serve as an offthe-
The fact is your brain craves novelty. It's constantly searching, scanning, waiting for something unusual to happen. After all, that's the way it was built to help you stay alive. It takes all the routine, ordinary, dull stuff and filters it to the background so it won't interfere with your brain's real work--recording things that matter. How does your brain know what matters? It's like the creators of the Head First approach say, suppose you're out for a hike and a tiger jumps in front of you, what happens in your brain? Neurons fire. Emotions crank up. Chemicals surge. That's...

From the early 1970s to mid-1990s, positron emission tomography (PET)
as a diagnostic imaging modality had been for the most part used in experimental
research. Clinical PET started only a decade ago. 82Rb-RbCl and
18F-Fluorodeoxyglucose were approved by the U.S. Food and Drug administration
in 1989 and 1994, respectively, for clinical PET imaging. Reimbursement
by Medicare was approved in 1995 for 82Rb-PET myocardial
perfusion imaging and for 18F-FDG PET for various oncologic indications
in 1999. Currently several more PET procedures are covered for
The molecular carbon dioxide laser was invented in 1964 by C. K. N. Patel at Bell Labs.
Immediately, it proved to be a high-power, continuous wave (CW) laser and a
relatively high-efficiency gas laser (20-25% conversion of electrical energy into laser
radiation), both in CW or pulsed operation. As a matter of fact, the CO2 lasers are the
highest-power CW lasers (more than 100 kW) and one of the highest-energy pulsed
gas laser (100 kJ) that are currently available.
You can never speak a language by just studying it,no matter how much you study. Yes, you read that right. Studying is the wrong thing to do if. you want to speak a language. I’m totally serious.
Last night I ran into some English speakers and heard the. same thing I’ve heard thousands of times about other
languages: they have been studying German for years and. don’t speak it yet, even though they now live in Berlin.
Every day, I get dozens of e-mails from aspiring language.hackers sharing their tales of woe with me; they’ve spent a...
In a matter of a few short years,
the underwater digital camera
went from a novelty item to the
predominant method for taking
underwater pictures. Never before has
a technology advanced so rapidly.
Thanks to digital, though, underwater
photography has evolved into a shootto-
edit process. Rather than having to
get each image just right as you did
when using film, you now have the
option of editing the image postcapture.
Ebook The language of Chemistry, Food and Biological Technology in English (ngôn ngữ tiếng anh chuyên ngành công nghệ hóa học, công nghệ thực phẩm và công nghệ sinh học) - GS.TS. Nguyễn Thị Hiền (chủ biên) có cấu trúc gồm 4 part.
Most great programming books sway far more toward the realm of the practical
than of the academic. Although I have no illusions regarding my place among the
great technical authors of our time, it is always my goal to write with this point in
mind, producing material that you can apply to your own situation. Given the size
of this book, it’s probably apparent that I attempted to squeeze out every last drop of
such practicality from the subject matter.
Introductory chapters are typically pretty easy to write. In most books, you give an overview
of the technology covered, explain a few basics, and try and get the reader interested.
However, for this second edition of Java and XML, things aren't so easy. In the first edition,
there were still a lot of people coming to XML, or skeptics wanting to see if this new type of
markup was really as good as the hype. Over a year later, everyone is using XML in hundreds
of ways. In a sense, you probably don't need an introduction. But I'll give you an idea of
what's going to...

For any holder of securities, whether an organization or individual, remaining in control of
securities and cash positions is fundamental to the efficient management of its investment
portfolio. This is not simply a matter of recording trading and settlement activity, but also the
accurate processing and recording of the impact of corporate action events on those securities
and cash positions.

In almost all areas of daily life the demands on the communications infrastructure
increased dramatically. With regard to the volume of data that has to be transmitted,
no matter whether we are dealing with public or private networks, industrial
fields or automobiles, needs will continue to rise. Consequently, the demands
on the bandwidth of communications systems will continue to increase since more
and more video data streams with high picture quality (IP TV), in addition to telephone
and data circuits, will be transmitted.
