Lipids: Biochemistry, Biotechnology And Health
Significant advances in lipid science have demanded yet another extensive rewriting for this edition, with the addition of two new authors, to cover new knowledge of genes coding for proteins involved in lipid metabolism, the many lipids involved in cell signalling, the roles of lipids in health and disease and new developments in biotechnology in support of agriculture and industry.
Lipids: Biochemistry, Biotechnology and Health
Lipids in Health and Disease is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that publishes articles on all aspects of lipids: their interaction with proteins, (bio) chemistry, (molecular) pharmacology, (molecular) toxicology, natural products chemistry, role in health and disease, in addition to the synthesis of new lipid compounds, and enzyme systems involved in lipid metabolism.Lipids in Health and Disease is aimed at all scientists, health professionals, and physicians interested in lipids. Lipids are defined herein based on their broadest sense, to include: cholesterol, essential fatty acids, saturated fatty acids, phospholipids, inositol lipids, second messenger lipids, enzymes, and synthetic machinery that is involved in the metabolism of various lipids in the cells and tissues, and also various aspects of lipid transport. In addition, the journal also publishes research that investigates and defines the role of lipids in various physiological processes, pathology, and disease. In particular, the journal aims to bridge the gap between the bench and the clinic by publishing articles that are particularly relevant to human diseases and the role of lipids in the management of various diseases.
Graduates of our programs can be competitive for further academic training, such as Ph.D. or M.D. programs, or may pursue research or other positions in academia, biotechnology or health care settings.
The knowledge and methods developed by biochemists are applied to in all fields of medicine, in agriculture and in many chemical and health-related industries. Biochemistry is also unique in providing teaching and research in both protein structure/function and genetic engineering, the two basic components of the rapidly expanding field of biotechnology.
Biochemistry, cell biology, and molecular biology study the function of cells and organisms at the molecular level. The concentration includes the study of the structure and function of proteins, lipids, carbohydrates, DNA and RNA, as well as how these and other molecules control cellular and organismal function. The curriculum prepares students for a variety of careers in biological research, biotechnology, the health professions or education. 041b061a72
