Immunity by William E. Paul

By William E. Paul

This major booklet conveys Dr. William E. Paul’s enduring enthusiasm for the sector of immunology, the extraordinary accomplishments of the prior half-century, and the future’s untapped promises.

The immune approach has great energy to guard us from the ravages of an infection by way of killing disease-causing microbes or putting off them from the physique. Boosted by means of vaccines, it will possibly defend us separately and as a "herd" from illnesses resembling measles. As Dr. Paul explains, even though, the facility of the immune method is a double-edged sword: an overactive immune approach can wreak havoc, destroying basic tissue and inflicting illnesses corresponding to variety I diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, and a number of sclerosis. the results of an impaired immune method, nevertheless, are all too glaring within the medical agonies of AIDS and different immunodeficiency diseases.

Packed with illustrations, tales from Dr. Paul’s special profession, and compelling narratives of clinical discovery, Immunity provides the 3 legislation of the human immune system—universality, tolerance, and appropriateness—and explains how the procedure protects and harms us. From the story of the way smallpox used to be triumph over to the teachings of the Ebola epidemic to the application of vaccines and the desire that the immune approach can be utilized to regard or hinder melanoma, Dr. Paul argues that we needs to place ourselves to exploit state of the art applied sciences and promising new instruments in immunological examine, together with gigantic information and the microbiome.

Ontogenesis of the Visual System (Advances in Anatomy, by Karl Zilles

By Karl Zilles

An ontogenetic learn of the significant worried procedure is a crucial instrument for the below status of its morphological and morpho-functional kin. a variety of qualitative effects at the ontogenesis of the visible process are available within the literature, yet there are just only a few quantitative effects pleasurable the subsequent parameters: (1) samples of adequate measurement; (2) measurements contemplating result of stereology; (3) review and interpretation played with sound biomathematical equipment; (4) quantitative of the shrinkage attributable to the histological technic. the 1st 3 effects self sufficient calls for should be fulfilled through the use of to be had automated stereological and biomathe matical tools (Kretschmann and Wingert, 1968, 1969a, b, c, 1971; Wingert, 1969; Zilies and Wingert, 1972; Zilies et al., 1976a, c, d). The interdisciplinary cooperation among morphologists and mathematicians makes attainable the research of the quantity progress, the variety of nerve-and glial cells in an entire mind area (Schleicher et al., 1975a, b; Zilies and Wingert, 1973a, b; Zilies et al., 1974, 1975a, b), the semi-automatic research of the nucleolar diameters in nerve cells (Zilies et al., 1976b) and machine aided compartment research with the purpose counting procedure (Zilies et al., in press b). Tupaia belangeri, an attractive animal for neurobiologists, was once the experimental animal of selection since it combines the advan tages of a small mind (conducive to speedy processing) with many features of the of the primate brain.

Zellbiologie in der Schule (Gymnasium Klasse 7/8): Zwiebel, by Julia O.

By Julia O.

Unterrichtsentwurf aus dem Jahr 2012 im Fachbereich Biologie - Didaktik, notice: 2,3, Freie Universität Berlin (Institut für Biologie, Chemie, Pharmazie), Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Das Themenfeld der Zellbiologie nimmt einen enormen Stellenwert im Rahmenlehrplan der Biologie ein, sei es im Primarbereich, der Sekundarstufe I oder der Gymnasialen Oberstufe. Es werden jedoch nicht nur inhaltliche Aspekte gelehrt und gelernt, auch umfassende Möglichkeiten und Chancen der Kompetenzerweiterung sollen Gegenstand des Biologieunterrichts sein. Die starke Präsenz der Zellbiologie in den Rahmenlehrplänen aller Schulstufen, gewichtet dessen Bedeutung für den Biologieunterricht und weiterführende Themenbereiche.
Bereits in der five. und 6. Jahrgangsstufe behandelt der Themenkomplex „Lebewesen bestehen aus Zellen“ Basiskonzepte zur Struktur, Funktion und Kompartimentierung von Zellen, sowie Stoff- und Energiewechsel auf der zellulären Ebene. Besonderes Augenmerk wird in diesen Jahrgangsstufen auf das Präparieren und Mikroskopieren gelegt, da bereits jetzt die Kompetenz der Erkenntnisgewinnung mithilfe naturwissenschaftlicher Methoden von Bedeutung ist.
