Synthetic biology aims to build or create new living organisms either from raw materials or from materials borrowed from other organisms. Although arguably only a short step away from the techniques already practiced in molecular biology
The text is recommended for the novice presenter as well as the seasoned instructor looking for ways to improve delivery and, perhaps, student (or cohort) evaluations

If you are an academic working in the areas of biotechnology or pharmaceutical development, this brief text, written by a lawyer and an accomplished researcher, can be a good quick introduction to some of the ramifications of entering into a consulting or advising (or both) agreement with industry
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is the most versatile and fastest-growing modality in diagnostic imaging, and is considered to be one of the most important medical advances of the 20th century. MRI Essentials for Innovative Technologies describes novel methods to improve MRI beyond its current limitations and combines rigorous development of mathematical concepts with descriptive presentations of the emerging MRI techniques.
It is difficult to find a book that covers both biomedical image processing and biomedical signal processing that also has good coverage of the physics of biomedical signal acquisition techniques and biomedical imaging. This book, which contains much information in the field of signal and image processing techniques (the first edition appeared in 2005), has perfectly achieved this goal.
This 12-chapter text has the goal of showing how mathematics can illuminate fascinating problems drawn from society and biology. Each chapter takes a particular mathematical topic and applies it to one or more problems in society or biology.
Modeling and simulation have developed into indispensable disciplines in many fields including the physiological sciences; yet, there are few accessible texts available that teach the model building process in a methodical way for the physiological model developer. This text fills that need admirably.
