The Overview of the Topic was the following: "One of the most active areas of research in molecular microbiology has been the study of how bacteria modulate their genetic activity and its consequences. The prokaryotic world has gained a lot of interest. In addition to the above, the invention is based on the subject-matter of the present invention, which is incorporated herein by reference in its entirety. All of these processes are fundamental to the operation of a genetic entity and condition their lifestyle. Further, the discoveries in the bacterial world have been of ample use in eukaryotes. [Article in German] Hansen, Hansen, H. (2003). In addition to the fundamental interest in understanding modulation of prokaryotic lifestyle by DNA binding proteins, As it is well-known the antibiotic-resistance strains of pathogenic bacteria are a major world problem, so that there is an urgent need of innovative technologies to tackle it. Most of the patients are infected with the virus. It is an imperative of finding new alternatives to the 'classical' way of treatment of bacterial infections and these new alternatives. Nevertheless, These new alternatives will find a dead-end if we are unable to obtain a better understanding of the basic processes modulating bacterial gene expression. Our goal is to achieve our understanding of protein-DNA interactions. First, the topic will bring together a lot of very active research in the study of gene replication, gene regulation, the strategies. We therefore want to acquire an in-depth knowledge of some of the mechanisms of gene regulation, gene transfer, and gene replication. Further, the readers of the papers will realize the importance of the topic and will learn the most recent thinking, results, and approaches in the area ". We are fully confident that we have exceeded our expectations. Now we are proud to present the final output of the topic, which is the eBook. It includes 24 articles contributed by 118 authors. As of today, March, 16th, January 2017, the total number of readings has reached 19,284, 14,921 article views, and 2,944 article downloads.

Kucers’ The Use of Antibiotics is the definitive, internationally-authored reference, providing everything that the infectious diseases specialist and prescriber needs to know about antimicrobials in this vast and rapidly developing field. The much-expanded Seventh Edition comprises 4800 pages in 3 volumes in order to cover all new and existing therapies, and emerging drugs not yet fully licensed. Concentrating on the treatment of infectious diseases, the content is divided into four sections - antibiotics, anti-fungal drugs, anti-parasitic drugs, and anti-viral drugs - and is highly structured for ease of reference. Each chapter is organized in a consistent format, covering susceptibility, formulations and dosing (adult and pediatric), pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics, toxicity, and drug distribution, with detailed discussion regarding clinical uses - a feature unique to this title. Compiled by an expanded team of internationally renowned and respected editors, with expert contributors representing Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, South America, the US, and Canada, the Seventh Edition adopts a truly global approach. It remains invaluable for anyone using antimicrobial agents in their clinical practice and provides, in a systematic and concise manner, all the information required when prescribing an antimicrobial to treat infection.

The Attribute of Water

Single Notion, Multiple Myths

This book features the latest advances and future trends in water science and technology. It also discusses the scientific popularization and quantitative resolution of a variety of mysterious properties of water and ice from the perspective of hydrogen-bond cooperativity in response to stimuli such as chemical contamination, electrification, magnetification, mechanical compression, molecular undercoordination, and thermal excitation. Anomalies include the floating of ice, the Hofmeister effect in solutions, regelation of ice, slipperiness of ice, water’s tough skin, the Mpemba paradox, and the floating bridge. It also addresses the superfluidity of microchannels, hydrogen bond potentials, nanodroplet and bubble thermodynamics, quasisolidity and supersolidity, controlling superhydrophobicity–superhydrophilicity transition, and high-pressure ice formation. The target audience for this book includes students, senior scholars, engineers and practitioners in the area of physical chemistry, biology, as well as aqueous and colloid solutions.
