Introduction

Bioinformatics is an interdisciplinary science at the interfaces of the biological, informational and computational sciences, uses computation to better understand biology. Bioinformatics involves the analysis of biological data, particularly DNA, RNA, and protein sequences. The field of bioinformatics experienced explosive growth starting in the mid-1990s, driven largely by the Human Genome Project and by rapid advances in DNA sequencing technology. Recent and novel technologies produce biological datasets of ever-increasing resolution that reveal not only genomic sequences but also RNA and protein abundances, their interactions with one another, their subcellular localization, and the identity and abundance of other biological molecules. This requires the development and application of sophisticated computational methods. Bioinformatics utilizes computational approaches to analyze patterns in biological data and to create complex models of biological activity, including attempts to elucidate the functions of genes and their interactions in genetic pathways. Widespread social benefits are expected from the exploitation of the wealth of new knowledge concerning the genetic mechanisms of life and related processes.... [-]

Introduction:

The Ph.D. degree program in Environmental Engineering- Air Pollution is a multidisciplinary program that involves the applications of scientific knowledge and engineering solution to control pollution and to provide clean air for the workers in industries. Air pollutants are a complex mix of chemicals emitted by human and natural sources and formed in the atmosphere such as sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, particulate matter, heavy metal trace species, volatile organic compounds, and hydrocarbons. Air pollution engineering consists of two major components, air pollution control, and air quality engineering. Air pollution control focuses on the fundamentals of air pollutant formation in process technologies and the identification of options for mitigating or preventing air pollutant emissions. Globally, air pollution is responsible for over four million premature deaths annually. Air quality engineering deals with large-scale, multi-source control strategies, with focus on the physics and chemistry of pollutant interactions in the atmosphere.... [-]

Introduction:

The Ph.D. degree program in Environmental Engineering- Environmental Planning is the advanced degree in Environmental planning and is focused on training students for research and teaching in the areas of environmental planning. Environmental planning is the application of natural and social science to promote environmentally sound development and management of natural resources. It is a broad field, bridging the disciplines of geology, soils, hydrology, plant and wildlife ecology, law, and public policy. The environmental planner plays a pivotal role providing a bridge between specialists and the decision makers. Much better land-use decisions will result if the decision makers are better informed about the environmental effects of alternative actions. Thus, the environmental planner pulls information together from various disciplines and presents it in a form comprehensible to decision makers. This involves working closely with specialists in interactions that draw upon the planner’s background in these specializations. At the regional planning scale, environmental planners analyze the landscape to identify constraints on land use. From these analyses, guidelines and regulations are developed to reduce losses from landslides, earthquakes, floods, forest fires, and other natural hazards.Environmental planners for the site planning review specific development proposals, acting as intermediaries between natural scientists and planning firms to inspire more creative and ecologically informed plans and to help mitigate the detrimental effects of development toward a sustainable one....

PhD in Nanochemistry - Supramolecular

Campus Full time Part time September 2019 Iran Tehran

Nanotechnology is the creation of functional materials, devices, and systems through control of matter on the nanometer (1 to 100 nm) length scale and the exploitation of novel properties and phenomena developed at that scale. [+]

Introduction

Nanotechnology is the creation of functional materials, devices, and systems through control of matter on the nanometer (1 to 100 nm) length scale and the exploitation of novel properties and phenomena developed at that scale. Nanochemistry is an emerging subdiscipline of chemistry that emphasizes the synthesis rather than the engineering aspects of preparing little pieces of matter with nanometer sizes in one, two or three dimensions. The nanochemist can be considered to work towards this goal from the atom 'up', whereas the nanophysicist tends to operate from the bulk 'down'. Nanochemists develop new pharmaceutical products, structural materials, electronic device components, light-emitting materials, and many other products, many already available commercially. Supramolecular chemistry is the study of entities of greater complexity than individual molecules, assemblies of molecules that bond and organize through intermolecular interactions. The design and synthesis of supramolecular systems invoke interactions beyond the covalent bond, using, for example, hydrogen bonding, and metal coordination and π interactions to bring discrete building blocks together. Important concepts that have been demonstrated by supramolecular chemistry include molecular self-assembly, folding, molecular recognition, host-guest chemistry, mechanically-interlocked molecular architectures, and dynamic covalent chemistry. The study of non-covalent interactions is crucial to understanding many biological processes from cell structure to vision that relies on these forces for structure and function. Biological systems are often the inspiration for supramolecular research. Molecular machines are molecules or molecular assemblies that can perform functions such as linear or rotational movement, switching, and entrapment. These devices exist at the boundary between...
