Book "Simulations in Nanobiotechnology"

I am happy to announce the publication of a book "Simulations in Nanobiotechnology", which was contributed from researchers (including iMechanicians) who have expertise in the area of nanobiotechnology. The book is aimed at presenting the current state-of-arts in computational simulations of biological objects such as proteins as well as nanomaterials such as graphene, and also bio-nano-hybrid system such as nanopore-biomolecule interactions. This book provides the insight into the simulation-based characterization in nanobiotechnology.




Editor: Kilho Eom

Publisher: CRC Press (Oct. 17, 2011) 

ISBN: 9781439835043 


Presenting the simulation-based nanoscale characterizations in biological science, Part 1: 

  • Describes recent efforts in MD simulation-based characterization and CG modeling of DNA and protein transport dynamics in the nanopore and nanochannel
  • Presents recent advances made in continuum mechanics-based modeling of membrane proteins
  • Summarizes theoretical frameworks along with atomistic simulations in single-molecule mechanics
  • Provides the computational simulation-based mechanical characterization of protein materials

Discussing advances in modeling techniques and their applications, Part 2:

  • Describes advances in nature-inspired material design; atomistic simulation-based characterization of nanoparticles’ optical properties; and nanoparticle-based applications in therapeutics
  • Overviews of the recent advances made in experiment and simulation-based characterizations of nanoscale adhesive properties
  • Suggests theoretical frameworks with experimental efforts in the development of nanoresonators for future nanoscale device designs
  • Delineates advances in theoretical and computational methods for understanding the mechanical behavior of a graphene monolayer
