This physico-chemical debate is avoided here, and instead I maintain that starting with the organelles that constitute a cell, and continuing up the hierarchy of components in processes and subsystems of an organism, we have clear instances of living, emergent biological phenomena.
Since we now understand that most (if not all) biological processes occur at the nanoscale, the application of life science principles - studying the causes of biological phenomena at the molecular level - means that medical and biomedical research is increasingly using a bottom-up (rather than the top-down) approach.
in the context of this foa, systems developmental biology is defined as research focused on understanding how biological components work together to produce the complex biological phenomena encompassing embryonic development.
The 24 papers in this collection cover the dynamic and geometric modeling of biomolecular structures, population dynamics, recognizing patterns in biological phenomena, the mathematical modeling of infectious diseases, computational biology, multi-scale models in biological sciences, and the mathematical morphology of biological structures.
As a result, it causes disorder in biological phenomena in the body.
Voit (Georgia Institute of Technology) presents a textbook for a graduate or advanced undergraduate course in a young discipline that analyzes biological phenomena as actions of complex systems.
The scientists said that the T-ray scanner and detector could provide part of the functionality of a Star Trek-like medical 'tricorder' - a portable sensing, computing and data communications device - since the waves are capable of detecting biological phenomena such as increased blood flow around tumorous growths.
A textbook for undergraduate students of mathematics and the physical and biological sciences explains the use of mathematics as a tool or modeling and understanding biological phenomena, especially how mathematicians have honed the theory of nonlinear differential equations in response to gauntlets biologists have thrown down before them.
At the same time, quantum dot devices can themselves serve as sensitive probes of all sorts of physical, chemical, and biological phenomena on a microscopic level.
In the next, the author argues that although Aristotle's general psychological theory provides a framework for his zoological researches, and often influences his interpretation of biological phenomena, it is applied loosely, and there is often a mismatch between his general theory and the specific results of biological investigation.
Compugen's proprietary in silico transcriptome and proteome infrastructure is the result of its decade-long research and modeling of various biological phenomena, including alternative splicing, resulting in a rich, comprehensive, and broadly applicable discovery infrastructure consisting of all genes and their respective splice variants and resulting proteins.
This multi-authored work explores the diverse range of imaging techniques that can be used for noninvasive visualization of biological phenomena both large and small.
