In April 2005, I received a telephone call from Humana Press Senior Editor, Harvey Kane, inquiring whether there might be a need for a book to be published concerning the different aspects of computer forensics. During a subsequent meeting to discuss the current state of available texts covering this topic, I noted to Mr. Kane that there were...
The introduction was composed by Jennifer L. Bayuk, the editor of this volume. It
briefly describes the history of the cyberforensics field and places the subsequent
chapters into context. The last section of the introduction, Expert Explanations,
describes the format of the following sections and also how the sections complement...
The field of DNA repair has been the subject of increasing interest at both the
genetic and biochemical levels, leading to impressive progress in this area. DNA
repair and its associated regulatory mechanisms lie at the heart of almost every
fundamental aspect of cell biology, including transcription, cell cycle, apoptosis,
Recognized clinical leaders in neurosurgery and neuroradiology review the cutting-edge techniques and technologies now available and describe how minimally invasive techniques have influenced their subspecialties.

The first bacterial genome, Haemophilus influenzae, was completely sequenced,
annotated, and published in 1995. Today, more than 200 prokaryotic (archaeal and
bacterial) genomes have been completed and over 500 prokaryotic genomes are in various
stages of completion. Seventeen eukaryotic genomes plus four eukaryotic chromosomes...
Improvements in instrument design and computing power and the increased
availability of fluorescent agents have led to an increased usage of flow cytometry
in both the research and clinical settings. Flow Cytometry: Principles and
Applications provides a comprehensive introduction to data interpretation, quality
Methods in Membrane Lipids presents a compendium of methodologies for the study of membrane lipids, varying from traditional lab bench experimentation to computer simulation and theoretical models.

When I was a medical student interested in physical medicine and
rehabilitation (PM&R), I found several excellent detailed texts for
PM&R and I also encountered a few good, quick reference materials.
What I felt was lacking was a comprehensive but high-yield, focused
review of the most important points that I could read...
