Z759856 Applications of Transition Metal Catalysis in Drug Discovery and Development: An Industrial Perspective M.L. Crawley and B.M. Trost, John Wiley & Sons, New York, NY, 2012, 376 pp., hard cover This book focuses on the drug discovery and development applications of transition metal catalyzed processes, which can efficiently create preclinical and clinical drug candidates as well as marketed drugs. The authors pay particular attention to the challenges of transitioning academically-developed reactions into scalable industrial processes. Additionally, the book lays the groundwork for how continued development of transition metal catalyzed processes can deliver new drug candidates. This work provides a unique perspective on the applications of transition metal catalysis in drug discovery and development - it is a guide, a historical prospective, a practical compendium, and a source of future direction for the field.
B4306 Bioinformatics: Sequence and Genome Analysis Application of computational methods to DNA and protein science is an exciting development. This book features sequence alignment, structure prediction, phylogenetic and gene prediction, database searching, and genome analysis that are clearly explained and illustrated along with underlying algorithms and assumptions. Theoretical underpinnings are linked to biological problems and solutions. Extensive tables provide descriptions and Web sources for a range of available software. An associated Website, accessible free of charge by book purchasers, provides links to Internet sources referred to in the text (http://www.BioinformaticsOnline.org).
