Substantial yet reader-friendly, this introduction examines the living system from the molecular to the human scale–presenting bioengineering practice via some of the best engineering designs provided by nature, from a variety of perspectives. Domach makes the field more accessible for students, helping them to pick up the jargon and determine where their skill sets may fit in. He covers such key issues as optimization, scaling, and design, and introduces these concepts in a sequential, layered manner. Analysis strategies, science, and technology are illustrated in each chapter.
