This book provides current research on aquaculture. Chapter One reviews management, challenges and developments of aquaculture in Ghana, West Africa. Chapter Two covers the fundamental knowledge of phage infection in bacterial cell and extends it to phage therapy by using a model of Vibriophage, called VH-P, with its specific Vibrio harveyi host, VH 13-1. Chapter Three discusses taste-taint modelling in Recirculating Aquaculture Systems (RAS) farmed fish. Chapter Four investigates the causative effect of protein, lipid, feeding level and their interaction on growth, biological parameters and haematology of Oreochromis niloticus. Chapter Five provides a review on the mapping of the value chain for farmed fish and gender analysis along the aquaculture value chain in Kenya. Chapter Six answers why aquaculture trials have not been successful in Tanzania.

Björn E. Clausen, “Inflammation: Methods and Protocols”

English | 22 Jan. 2017 | ISBN: 1493967843 | 482 Pages | EPUB | 8 MB

This volume presents a broad selection of cutting-edge methods and tools that will enable the reader to investigate the multi-faceted manifestations of inflammation. Inflammation: Methods and Protocols is divided into four sections: the first three sections describe protocols investigating immune-mediated inflammatory disease models affecting barrier organs to the environment; the skin, the lung, and the intestinal and oral mucosa. The fourth section illustrates inflammatory disease models of the brain, joints, and vasculature. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and notes on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.
Authoritative and practical, Inflammation: Methods and Protocols aims to inspire the experienced investigator and the young experimenter alike to disentangle the fascinating process of inflammation.

Chromogranins: from Cell Biology to Physiology and Biomedicine (UNIPA Springer Series) by Tommaso Angelone

English | 23 Nov. 2017 | ISBN: 3319583379 | 267 Pages | EPUB | 2.66 MB

The volume is designed to provide an integrated overview of the results from the last fifteen years of research on Chromogranins in relation to cell biology, physiology and biomedicine. The different chapters highlight novel activities of these proteins, including their role in granule biogenesis, hormone co-storage, stimulus-processing-secretion coupling, autonomic sympathetic/parasympathetic balance, immune and cardiocirculatory function, and the response to stress. Biomedical aspects are also illustrated with focus on the prognostic and diagnostic significance of Chromogranin in the presence of tumors, cardiovascular diseases and inflammatory conditions.

The Secret Life of Whales: A Marine Biologist Reveals All by Micheline Jenner

English | November 1st, 2017 | ASIN: B076B8MPLB, ISBN: 1742235549 | 239 Pages | EPUB | 2.13 MB

Marine biologist Micheline Jenner discovered humpback breeding grounds off the Kimberley coast, has swum through orange golfball-sized pygmy blue whale poo to uncover a feeding spot, and is one of very few people to witness a humpback whale giving birth.
In The Secret Life of Whales she reveals the unknown world of these giants of the deep and shares insights from her work with humpback, blue and pygmy blue whales, taking us from Australia to Antarctica and beyond. Enlightening and eye-opening, The Secret Life of Whales reveals fascinating information about how whales live, tapping into Jenner’s world-leading research and infectious enthusiasm for these magnificent creatures.
