Atomic Force Microscopy in Nanobiology PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Atomic Force Microscopy in Nanobiology free pdf Recent developments in atomic force microscopy (AFM) have been accomplished through various technical and instrumental innovations, including high-resolution and recognition imaging technology under physiological conditions, fast-scanning AFM, and general methods for cantilever modification and force measurement. All these techniques are now highly powerful not only in material sciences but also in basic biological sciences. There are many nanotechnology books that focus on materials, instruments, and applications in engineering and medicine, but only a few of them are directed toward basic biological sciences. This book tries to bridge this gap. Edited by a prominent researcher, this volume provides an overview of modern AFM technologies: the basic AFM protocols in Part I, newly developed technologies in Part II, and the most recent applications of AFM technologies in biological sciences in Parts III and IV. The chapters are contributed by some of the leading scientists in the field of nanobiology.

About Kunio Takeyasu

Kunio Takeyasu was trained as a zoologist and neuro-pharmacologist in his early career when he was a graduate student at Hiroshima University and Osaka University. After his postdoctoral research on the molecular and cell biological aspects of membrane proteins such as acetylcholine receptors and ion-motive ATPases at Cornell University and the Johns Hopkins University, he joined the University of Virginia as an assistant professor in 1988 and started to utilize atomic force microscopy (AFM) in biological studies. After four years of research and teaching at The Ohio State University, he moved to Kyoto University as a full professor in 1995. Since then, he has been developing technologies for biological application of AFM. His most recent research has been focused on single-molecule imaging of membrane proteins and chromatin at sub-second time region with nanometer space resolution. Prof. Takeyasu has been a member of the Biophysical Society and the American Society for Cell Biology.
