Ancestry determination in the identification of unknown remains can be a challenge for forensic scientists and anthropologists, especially when the remains available for testing are limited. There are various techniques for the assessment of ancestry, ranging from traditional to new microbiological and computer-assisted methods. Biological Affinity in Forensic Identification of Human Skeletal Remains: Beyond Black and White presents a range of tools that can be used to identify the probable socio-cultural "race" category of unknown human remains. Gathering insight from

In recent years there has been a rapid increase in the use of wireless communications devices and a great deal of research has been carried out to investigate possible biological or human health effects resulting from their use. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration asked the National Research Council to organize a workshop to identify research needs and gaps in knowledge in the areas of dosimetry and exposure, epidemiology, human laboratory studies, mechanisms, and animal and cell biology. The

This book presents an exploratory analysis based on proteomic and ionomics studies comparing the blood serum of patients with bipolar disorder (BD), healthy controls, patients with schizophrenia (SCZ), and patients with other disorders (OD) in order to identify biomarkers of BD. Bipolar disorder is a psychiatric condition that affects thousands of people worldwide. The absence of biomarkers for BD has resulted in misdiagnosis and ineffective treatment in some patients, causing additional health problems and high costs for health systems. As
