Biomineralization

From Molecular and Nano-structural Analyses to Environmental Science

Editors: Endo, Kazuyoshi, Kogure, Toshihiro, Nagasawa, Hiromichi (Eds.)

  • Presents state-of-the-art biomineralization research, including basic mechanism, inorganic/organic interactions, and evolution
  • Discusses analyses of species-specific nano-structures of various biominerals based on extensive microscopic observations
  • Describes molecular and cellular mechanisms of biomineralization, including ion transport and roles of organic matrices
  • Addresses application of the fundamental mechanism of biomineralization to medical, dental, materials, agricultural, aquacultural, and environmental sciences

About this book

This open access book is the proceedings of the 14th International Symposium on Biomineralization (BIOMIN XIV) held in 2017 at Tsukuba.  Over the past 45 years, biomineralization research has unveiled details of the characteristics of the nano-structure of various biominerals; the formation mechanism of this nano-structure, including the initial stage of crystallization; and the function of organic matrices in biominerals, and this knowledge has been applied to dental, medical, pharmaceutical, materials, agricultural and environmental sciences and paleontology. As such, biomineralization is an important interdisciplinary research area, and further advances are expected in both fundamental and applied research.
