Scientific research is a proven and powerful tool for discovering the answers to biological questions. As such, today's students need to be well-versed in experimental design, analysis, and the communication of research. Furthermore, they must appreciate how all of these aspects areinterlinked - how, for example, statistics can be used to inform the design of a particular experiment. As a resource which skillfully integrates all of the key aspects relating to biological research, Research Methods for the Biosciences is the perfect guide for undergraduates.The exceptionally clear layout takes students through choosing a project and planning their research; collecting, evaluating, and analyzing their data; and finally reporting their results. Research methods, which can often seem abstract, are brought to life through the use of examples taken fromreal undergraduate research. Friendly guidance and advice is provided throughout the text, and little prior knowledge or mathematical experience is required. Since statistics is a subject best learned through doing, frequent worked examples appear throughout Part Two "Handling your data", showingstep-by-step how to carry out the various statistical tests. In addition, online software walkthroughs and video screencasts clearly demonstrate how to use software such as SPSS, Minitab, and Excel to carry out statistical analyses.Online Resource CentreThe Online Resource Centre to accompany Research Methods for the Biosciences features:For students:* New video screencasts showing how to carry out statistical tests using software* Statistical software walkthroughs for SPSS, Excel, and Minitab* Additional statistical tests not included in the main text* Full details of calculations given in the in-text boxes * Interactive and printable decision tree, to help you design your experiment* Interactive and printable risk assessment form* Integrative exercises to help students test their understanding of the topics in the bookFor lecturers:* A test bank of questions* Figures from the book available to download

. . . this Handbook is inspiring. It is designed to assist educators in developing new programmes and pedagogical approaches based upon the previous experiences of others who have forged this exciting new path. I recommend it highly for the inspired as well as for the disillusioned entrepreneurship educator. Howard H. Frederick, Journal of Educational Administration and History This Handbook explores the current state of university-wide entrepreneurship education programs and provides a comprehensive reference guide for the planning and implementation of an entrepreneurship curriculum beyond the business school environment. A variety of authors spanning five countries and multiple disciplines discuss the opportunities and universal challenges in extending entrepreneurship education to the sciences, performing arts, social sciences, humanities, and liberal arts environments. The Handbook is designed to assist educators in developing new programs and pedagogical approaches based upon the previous experiences of others who have forged this exciting new path. Sections of the Handbook are devoted to philosophies and theory that provide a legitimate intellectual foundation for the fusion of entrepreneurship education with other traditional disciplines of the university, the politics and process of implementing entrepreneurship initiatives outside business schools, and examples of approaches to implementing entrepreneurship education outside business schools. The book identifies expected problems and solutions for new entrepreneurship curriculum development. It offers theory on education pedagogy that is critical to addressing concerns of non-business educators, and provides examples of successful efforts in a variety of non-business departments. Entrepreneurship faculty across disciplines and graduate students seeking ways to broaden involvement in entrepreneurship curriculum will find this volume invaluable, as will school administrators both in business and in the arts and sciences.

Scholars and policymakers alike agree that innovation in the biosciences is key to future growth. The field continues to shift and expand, and it is certainly changing the way people live their lives in a variety of ways. With a large share of federal research dollars devoted to the biosciences, the field is just beginning to live up to its billing as a source of innovation, economic productivity and growth. Vast untapped potential to imagine and innovate exists in the biosciences given new tools now widely available. In The Biologist's Imagination, William Hoffman and Leo Furcht examine the history of innovation in the biosciences, tracing technological innovation from the late eighteenth century to the present and placing special emphasis on how and where technology evolves. Place is often key to innovation, from the early industrial age to the rise of the biotechnology industry in the second half of the twentieth century. The book uses the distinct history of bioinnovation to discuss current trends as they relate to medicine, agriculture, energy, industry, ecosystems, and climate. Fast-moving research fields like genomics, synthetic biology, stem cell research, neuroscience, bioautomation and bioprinting are accelerating these trends. Hoffman and Furcht argue that our system of bioscience innovation is itself in need of innovation. It needs to adapt to the massive changes brought about by converging technologies and the globalization of higher education, workforce skills, and entrepreneurship. The Biologist's Imagination is both a review of past models for bioscience innovation and a forward-looking, original argument for what future models should take into account.
