Biomedical engineering is one of the most prominent and rapidly developing engineering fields. It is a discipline that is involved in the development of devices, algorithms, processes, procedures and systems to enhance and improve the medical field. Biomedical engineering has multiple areas of specialization that include: biomechanics, biomaterials, tissue engineering, imaging, and bioinstrumentation.

All organisms are composed of cells, but what is the definition of a cell? Can size, shape or function be used to distinguish cells from non-living biological systems such as a virus? Whatever the definition of a cell is, it can probably be contradicted by cells with unusual characteristics. For example, there are cells as long as a giraffe’s neck while others are smaller than a mitochondrion. Sometimes it is hard to know the difference between an animal and a plant cell. Despite their diversity of shapes and sizes, cells are small—most of the time.

Once the first cell arose on Earth, how did genetic diversity arise if DNA replication and cell division generate exact copies? The answer is that neither process is perfect and that changes do occur at each step. Some changes are small and subtle while others are large and dramatic. As DNA mutates, evolution of a population takes place. But when can someone determine if a single species has changed enough to be considered two separate species? How is a species defined and is this definition useful in the real world?

Sergio Ugarte and Vincent Swinkels

This publication describes several examples of policy instruments that improve the sustainability of value chains. For private organizations it looks into the possibility of combining the use of policy instruments and sustainability certification to manage value chain sustainability. The main part of this publication discusses the potential of co-regulation (combination of public policy instruments with private control mechanisms) for global value chains such as food, forestry and bioenergy.

Technical topics in science and engineering always present challenges when it comes to conveying or arguing information in a clear and effective manner. This book was written to address that challenge, using time-proven techniques developed by the author for academic courses and onsite training programs he has used for several decades at engineering schools, design and professional conferences.

Sensors are the eyes, ears, and more, of the modern engineered product or system—including the living human organism. This authoritative reference work, part of Momentum Press’s new Sensors Technology Series, edited by Joe Watson, will offer a comprehensive review of biomedical sensors and their associated instrumentation systems now commonly used in modern medicine.
