    Abstract: This monograph is the first easy-to-read-and-understand book on prion proteins' molecular dynamics (MD) simulations and on prions' molecular modelling (MM) constructions.℗ It enables researchers to see what is crucial to the conformational change from normal cellular prion protein (PrPC) to diseased infectious prions (PrPSc), using MD and MM techniques. As we all know, prion diseases, caused by the body's own proteins, are invariably fatal and highly infectious neurodegenerative diseases effecting humans and almost all animals for a major public health concern. Prion contains no nucleic acids and it is a misshapen or conformation-changed protein that acts like an infectious agent; thus prion diseases are called ́€œprotein structural conformationaĺ€ diseases. PrPC is predominant in Îł-helices but PrPSc are rich in Îø-sheets in the form as amyloid fibrils; so very amenable to be studied by MD techniques. Through MD, studies on the protein structures and the structural conversion are very important for revealing secrets of prion diseases and for structure-based drug design or discovery. Rabbits, dogs, horses and buffaloes are reported to be the few low susceptibility species to prion diseases; this book's MD studies on these species are clearly helpful to understand the mechanism underlying the resistance to prion diseases. PrP(1-120) usually has no clear molecular structures; this book also studies this unstructured region through MD and especially MM techniques from the global optimization point of view. This book is ideal for practitioners in computing of biophysics, biochemistry, biomedicine, bioinformatics, cheminformatics, materials science and engineering, applied mathematics and theoretical physics, information technology, operations research, biostatistics, etc. As an accessible introduction to these fields, this book is also ideal as a teaching material for students

    Abstract: Intensive high-yield agriculture today is typically dependent on addition of fertilizers (synthetic chemicals, animal manure, etc.). Increased knowledge on animal manure management and plant nutrient chemistry is required for improving utilization efficiency and minimizing losses of both inorganic and organic sources. Contributed by over 30 insightful senior researchers and innovative junior investigators, 17 chapters in this book highlight recent research advances in applied nutrient chemistry geared toward sustainable agriculture and environment, and outlook emerging researchable issues on alternative utilization and environmental monitoring of manure and other byproducts that may stimulate new research ideas and direction in the relevant fields. Chapter topics of interest include, but are not limited, to speciation, quantification, and interactions of various plant nutrients and relevant contributories in manure, soil, and plants. Covering issue-oriented comprehensive reviews and problem-solving-driven case studies, this book will serve as a valuable reference source for university faculty, graduate students, extension specialists, animal and soil scientists, agricultural engineers and other technical service providers, and government regulators who work and deal with various aspects of animal manure and plant nutrient management

Biological Control of Plant-Parasitic Nematodes by Nematophagous Fungi -- 6. Molecular Mechanism of Nematophagous Fungi Infection of Nematodes -- 7. Nematode-Toxic Fungi and their Nematicidal Metabolites -- 8. Future Study -- Index
    Abstract: These chapters provide up-to-date information on nematophagous fungi, particularly those of the Orbiliaceae in Ascomycota, whose asexual states produce nematode-trapping devices. The authors consider fungal-nematode interactions, fossil fungi, the biodiversity, ecology and geographical distribution of nematode-trapping fungi, and their potential use in biocontrol of nematodes, all in detail. Nematode-trapping fungi with adhesive or mechanical hyphal traps are the main focus of this book which begins with an overview of the data on nematode-trapping fungi, including their taxonomy, phylogeny and evolution. Subsequent chapters expand upon the methods and techniques used to study these fascinating fungi. Keys for genera of Arthrobotrys, Drechslerella and Dactylellina, which include all reported species of predatory orbiliaceous fungi are presented, and numerous species from these genera are morphologically described and illustrated. The ecology of nematode-trapping fungi is expertly presented: their occurrence and habitats, their geographical and seasonal distribution and the effects of soil conditions and nematode density on their distribution all feature amongst the relevant themes. Further chapters examine the use of nematode-trapping fungi in biological control and the authors consider nematicidal activities in detail, exploring the many compounds from fungi that feature in nematicidal activities and of course useful paths for further study on this topic. This is a highly informative and carefully presented book, providing scientific insight for scholars with an interest in fungi, and in biological control of nematodes

    Abstract: Cotton is the most important textile and cash crop and is widely cultivated in more than 70 countries, including the United States, China, and India. Because of its long life cycle and complicated genetic background, it is hard to improve cotton using traditional breeding techniques although it has made much progress in the last several decades. Currently, transgenic techniques have become a powerful tool to improve cotton, and transgenic cotton is among the first commercially genetically modified crops. Transgenic Cotton: Methods and Protocols provides a comprehensive collection of methods for creating and monitoring transgenic cotton and its application on agricultural and basic research. Divided into five convenient sections, topics covered include the current status and perspectives of transgenic cotton, the principle and methods for making transgenic cotton, the methods for detecting foreign gene copy and expression in transgenic plants, the improvement of cotton using transgenic technology, and finally the methods for monitoring the potential impact of transgenic cotton on the℗ environment, including gene flow. Written in the successful Methods in Molecular Biologý„Ø series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible protocols, and notes on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. ℗ Authoritative and easily accessible, Transgenic Cotton: Methods and Protocols will serve as an excellent resource for scientists as well as graduate students who work on transgenic plants, plant genetics, molecular biology and agricultural sciences
