Over the last few years, there has been a large increase in the study of these motors, and it is becoming apparent that many motors will find uses in either bionanotechnology or synthetic biology. Molecular Motors in Bionanotechnology describes a wide range of molecular motors, ranging from chemical motors to biological motors, in a manner that updates, or reviews, both classification of the type of motor and the grouping into families.
Many techniques have evolved to study and characterise molecular motors at the single-molecule level e. The text introduces the reader to the concepts and benefits of these techniques.

In addition, it looks at the structural information and how this helps understand function and, finally, how some of these motors are being used or may be used in the future as part of a synthetic biology approach to building devices and sensors. James Youell has been working as a research fellow since at the University of Portsmouth on the design of a high-throughput single-molecule drug development tool utilising molecular motors.
Through the development of this system, he has worked alongside a pan European research team, incorporating cutting-edge experimental tools, to build the various biological and synthetic components required.

Dr Youell has published a number of papers on the development of such synthetic biology devices and given invited seminars on the subject. Keith Firman is now retired from the University of Portsmouth, where he was reader in Molecular Biotechnology. He investigated the properties of type I restriction-modification systems.
Dr Firman has published more than 50 papers and was also invited to participate in a number of international road-mapping exercises in nanotechnology.

The writing is clear and engaging; the volume's illustrations are numerous and detailed, though see below. This would be a great book if it were expanded in a later edition. Disappointingly, however, this volume is very short, being just shy of pages, of which only pages are actual text, most of the rest being references.
Moreover, there are times when the authors get off track and go into detail about information that, for such a slim volume whose focus is molecular motors, doesn't seem relevant. For example, some 14 pages are spent listing the more than 20 subclasses of myosin, but these proteins are never described as being distinct molecular motors. Relying both in data from interviews and bibliometric indicators, we have developed a multidimensional analysis Sanz-Menndez et al. We have found that there is a consistent high degree of cross-disciplinarity in the cognitive practices of research i.
In the light of these findings we raise the question whether policies focusing on formal collaborations between laboratories are the most appropriate to facilitate cross-disciplinary knowledge acquisition and generation.
