Every Boston fan knows that the only thing better than watching sports is arguing about them--picking the best, the worst and who will come out on top. And no city tears its sports teams apart like we do in Beantown! Veteran Boston sportswriters Steve Buckley and Jim Caple take you inside the 100 best debates in Boston sports. Covering the Red Sox, Celtics, Patriots, Bruins and beyond, every question you want to debate is here--as well as a few surprises. Arguments include: Who was the greatest Boston athlete ever: Russell, Bird or Brady? Boston: Football town or baseball town? Was freezing Ted Williams really all that crazy? The greatest clutch performer in Bruins history: Was it Orr, or was it...? Which Yankees loss was more painful? Dent or Boone? Who was better, Ted or DiMaggio?

Authored by leading experts in the enzymology of natural product biosynthesis, this textbook provides a thorough description of the types of natural products, the biosynthetic pathways that enable the production of these molecules, and an update on the discovery of novel products in the post-genomic era. Although some 500-600,000 natural products have been isolated and characterized over the past two centuries, there may be a 10-fold greater inventory awaiting immediate exploration based on biosynthetic gene cluster predictions. The approach of this book is to codify the chemical logic that underlies each natural product structural class as they are assembled from building blocks of primary metabolism. This text will serve as a reference point for chemists of every subdiscipline, including synthetic organic chemists and medicinal chemists. It will also be valuable to bioinformatic and computational biologists, to pharmacognocists and chemical ecologists, to bioengineers and synthetic biologists.
