Biomedical Innovations to Combat COVID-19: Mechanics, Biology, and Numerical Modeling (Original PDF from Publisher)
By Sergio Rosales-Mendoza, Mauricio Comas-García, Omar González-Ortega
Biomedical Innovations to Combat COVID-19: Mechanics, Biology, and Numerical Modeling provides an updated overview on the development of vaccines, monoclonal antibodies, antiviral materials, and diagnostic methods for the fight against COVID-19. Perspectives on the bioinformatics applications are identified, discussed and enriched with figures and information trees for easy understanding and applicability.
The book is split into 4 sections: introduction, presenting basic virologic and epidemiological aspects of COVID-19; vaccines against COVID-19, discussing their different types and applications used to develop them; antibodies targeting COVID-19, encompassing the use of convalescent plasma, camelid and hybridoma-based antibodies; and diagnostic approaches, covering conventional serologic and immunodiagnostic tests and next generation biosensors.
It is a valuable source for bioinformaticians, biotechnologists and members of biomedical field interested in learning more about how novel technologies can be applied to fasten the eradication of the COVID-19 and similar pandemics.
