Science Studies: An Advanced Introduction by David J. Hess

By David J. Hess

Thrust into the general public eye via the contentious "Science Wars"--played out such a lot lately by means of physicist Alan Sokal's hoax--the nascent box of technological know-how experiences takes at the political, ancient, and cultural dimensions of know-how and the sciences.

Science Studies is the 1st entire survey of the sector, combining a concise evaluate of key suggestions with an unique and built-in framework. within the technique of bringing disparate fields jointly below one tent, David J. Hess realizes the complete promise of technology reports, lengthy uncomfortably squeezed into conventional disciplines. He presents a transparent dialogue of the problems and misunderstandings that experience arisen in those interdisciplinary conversations. His survey is up to date and comprises fresh advancements in philosophy, sociology, anthropology, background, cultural reviews, and feminist studies.

By relocating from the discipline-bound blinders of a sociology, historical past, philosophy, or anthropology of technology to a transdisciplinary box, technology reviews, Hess argues, should be in a position to supply the most important conceptual instruments for public discussions in regards to the function of technology and expertise in a democratic society.

Embracing Indigenous Knowledge in Science and Medical by Mariana G. Hewson

By Mariana G. Hewson

the point of interest of the booklet is on alternative ways of figuring out: the western clinical means (reductionist, dualistic and materialist) as opposed to the indigenous strategy (holistic, non-dualistic, and spiritual). It discusses either technological know-how and drugs within the context of the demanding situations skilled in introducing technological know-how and medication into Africa via imperialism, colonization, and globalization. It appears to be like at chosen indigenous African paradigms, the dominant western paradigms, and the practitioners that characterize those practices. The publication bargains with questions referring to compatibility and incompatibility of other methods of realizing and delves into epistemological stances, and the assumptions underlying those epistemologies. the quantity investigates no matter if, and the way anyone can accommodate varied epistemologies, and the character of such accommodations.

Techniques in Genetic Engineering by Isil Aksan Kurnaz

By Isil Aksan Kurnaz

Although designed for undergraduates with an curiosity in molecular biology, biotechnology, and bioengineering, this book—Techniques in Genetic Engineering—IS no longer: a laboratory handbook; neither is it a textbook on molecular biology or biochemistry. there's a few easy details within the appendices approximately middle thoughts reminiscent of DNA, RNA, protein, genes, and genomes; although, more often than not it really is assumed that the reader has a heritage on those key concerns.

Techniques in Genetic Engineering

in brief introduces a few universal genetic engineering suggestions and makes a speciality of how one can procedure diverse real-life difficulties utilizing a mixture of those key concerns. even supposing no longer an exhaustive assessment of those strategies, simple details comprises center options akin to DNA, RNA, protein, genes, and genomes. it truly is assumed that the reader has history on those key matters. The e-book presents enough history and destiny views for the readers to improve their very own experimental concepts and innovations.

This easy-to-follow publication offers not just the theoretical history of molecular ideas, but in addition presents case examine examples, with a few pattern options. The publication covers simple molecular cloning strategies; genetic amendment of cells, together with stem cells; in addition to multicellular organisms, utilizing problem-based case research examples.

Inquiry into the Singapore Science Classroom: Research and by Aik-Ling Tan,Chew-Leng Poon,Shirley S.L. Lim

By Aik-Ling Tan,Chew-Leng Poon,Shirley S.L. Lim

This booklet deals an insight into the learn and practices of technology instructing and studying within the Singapore lecture room, with specific cognizance paid to how they map directly to technological know-how as inquiry. It presents a spectrum of Singapore’s technology academic practices via all degrees of its schooling procedure, detailing either successes and shortcomings.

The ebook incorporates a choice of learn and discourse by means of technological know-how educators in Singapore, equipped round 4 subject matters which are crucial parts of impending technology as inquiry: lecturers’ principles and their practices, possibilities and constraints from a systemic point, scholars’ skills and readiness to profit via inquiry and the necessity for larger understanding of the function of casual studying avenues in technological know-how schooling. furthermore, the discourse inside of each one subject is enriched through remark from a number one foreign educational, which is helping to consolidate principles in addition to place the problems inside of a much broader theoretical and overseas context.

Overall, the papers set out very important contexts for readers to appreciate the present nation of technological know-how schooling in Singapore. in addition they spotlight strengths and gaps in practices of technological know-how as inquiry in addition to supply feedback approximately how the process might be enhanced. those examine findings are for that reason valuable as they supply sincere and evidence-based suggestions in addition to tangible and attainable principles that coverage makers, academics, scholars and faculty directors can undertake, adapt and enhance.

    The booklet starts off with insurance of super-resolution optical microscopy, which discusses particular modulation reminiscent of STED and SIM or localization tools akin to PALM. It then discusses novel improvement of fluorescent probes, reminiscent of natural small-molecule probes, fluorescent proteins, and inorganic labels corresponding to quantum dots. eventually, it describes complex optical microscopy, comparable to fluorescence lifetime imaging, fiber optic microscopy, scanning ion conductance microscopy, and the becoming a member of of optics and acoustics—photoacoustic microscopy. Following every one bankruptcy, an in depth checklist of references is equipped. difficulties on the finish of every bankruptcy also are incorporated.
