Panadip Pal (Texas Tech University, USA)

Proposals Submission Deadline: May 15, 2014

Full Chapters Due: August 10, 2014

For release in the Advances in Medical Technologies and Clinical Practice (AMTCP) Book Series

Series Editor(s): Srikanta Patnaik (SOA University, India) and Priti Das (S.C.B. Medical College, India)
ISSN: 2327-9354

The Advances in Medical Technologies and Clinical Practice (AMTCP) Book Series brings together the most recent research on the latest technology used in areas of nursing informatics, clinical technology, biomedicine, diagnostic technologies, and more. Researchers, students, and practitioners in this field will benefit from this fundamental coverage on the use of technology in clinical practices.

With the wealth of massively measured elements at different levels in biological systems enabled by the advancing –omics experimental technologies, modern biology has become a highly interdisciplinary science. There is a clear trend of increasing mathematical, computational, and engineering content in modern biology research. Computational biology and bioinformatics have become major research fields. To synergistically integrate biology knowledge, which is rather descriptive, with these quantitative sciences, it is imperative for the researchers to understand both basic biology and relevant mathematics. Computational models of complex biological systems hold the promise to better understand the interactions with such systems with the ultimate goal to predict and control their dynamic via appropriately designed intervention strategies. As a particular kind of complex biological system, Gene Regulatory Networks (GRNs) represent relations among strands of DNA (genes) and the cell regulatory activities associated with those genes. It has become evident that predictive computational modeling of GRNs is critical to our ability to successfully develop therapeutic strategies for complex diseases such as cancer.

Objective

This book will aim to provide relevant theoretical frameworks and the latest empirical research findings in the area. It will be written for professionals who want to improve their understanding of the different aspects of the computational modeling of GRNs: the model inference from experimental and simulated data, the methods for designing of intervention strategies for controlling the model dynamic, the model robustness, and mappings that can compress the model without significant loss of fidelity.

Target Audience

The target audience of this book will be composed of professionals and researchers working in fields related to modeling and use of models of GRNs, e.g., genomics, molecular biology, computational biology, bioinformatics, and drug development. Importantly, the book will present the most recent advances in the field and will outline the important open problems that need to be addressed in the near future.

Recommended Topics

GRNs – a conceptual framework

GRNs – modeling strategies

GRNs – inference from time series and perturbation data

GRNs – control

GRNs – robustness Analysis

GRNs – compression mappings

GRNs – uncertainty classes and validation

GRNs – application of the models to specific problems of interest, e.g. drug development

Call for Papers for a Special Issue of the Journal of Physiology: Sodium and Calcium in the Heart

The Journal of Physiology is planning to publish a Special Issue entitled Sodium and Calcium in the Heart.

Submit your research and review papers covering hot topics in this area for your chance to be included. All papers will be peer reviewed and, if accepted, published ‘In Press’, ahead of publication, as soon as they are accepted and will be fully citable.

Get your research seen!

In addition to you benefitting from being published in an issue dedicated to this topic, we are planning to publish three thematic white papers that showcase the current state of the understanding on sodium channels and transport. The resulting issue will serve as a resource reflecting the state of the field for sodium and calcium in the heart.

These important white papers follow on from the successful UC Davis Cardiovascular Symposium focused on “Sodium channels and sodium transport”. Each of the papers will cover the current knowledge in the field and importantly, will include recent advancements, consensuses, critical issues and controversies.

The three collaborative white papers will encompass the theme: “Sodium in the heart, from the atom to the clinic”. We expect the papers to cover the following topics:

• Paper 1: “From Sodium Overload to Sudden Death”. This paper will focus on abnormal sodium homeostasis in cardiac arrhythmias and therapy from cell to the whole heart.

• Paper 2: “Structure, Function and Regulation of Cardiac Na Channels”. This paper will cover topic including atomic scale experimental and theoretical investigations for structure and function. The paper will discuss the state of knowledge in Na channel regulation, trafficking and complexing.

• Paper 3: “Na Transport in the Heart”. This paper will focus on the function, dysfunction and regulation of Na/Ca exchanger and Na/K ATPase.

We are really looking forward to publishing these exciting papers, and we hope that you will be interested in helping this special issue take shape.

Deadline for Submissions: 1 June 2014

Don’t miss this opportunity Please indicate during online submission and in your cover letter that you wish your paper to be considered for the ‘Sodium and Calcium in the Heart Special Issue’.
