Genetic programming (GP) is a branch of Evolutionary Computing that aims the automatic discovery of programs to solve a given problem. Since its appearance, in the earliest nineties, GP has become one of the most promising paradigms for solving problems in the artificial intelligence field, producing a number of human-competitive results and even patentable new inventions. And, as other areas in Computer Science, GP continues evolving quickly, with new ideas, techniques and applications being constantly proposed....
Nucleic Acid Hybridization
Nucleic acid hybridization is a fundamental principle in molecular biology that takes advantage of the fact that the two complementary strands of nucleic acids bind, or hybridize, to one another with very high specificity. The goal of hybridization is to detect specific nucleic acid (DNA or RNA) sequences in a complex background of other sequences. This technique is used for Southern blotting, Northern blotting, and for screening libraries (see above). Further adaptation of hybridization techniques has led to the development of microarray DNA chips.
Genetic improvement of fish species is considered a priority area for research and development by the government of Viet Nam, particularly in the context of rural development, food security and poverty alleviation. The current proposal has been developed in consultation with Vietnamese staff of participating institutions. The project builds upon the existing collaborative links between Deakin University and the Research Institutes of Aquaculture (RIAs) in Viet Nam.
Polymerase Chain Reaction is widely held as one of
the most important inventions of the 20th century in
molecular biology. Small amounts of the genetic material
can now be amplified to be able to a identify, manipulate
DNA, detect infectious organisms, including the viruses
that cause AIDS, hepatitis, tuberculosis, detect genetic
variations, including mutations, in human genes and
numerous other tasks.
Learners enrolled in all healthcare training programs need to have a basic understanding
of medical genetics so that they can successfully transition from students to clinicians.
The field of medical genetics is advancing at a fast pace and is becoming increasingly integral
to all aspects of medicine. This fact emphasizes the need for every practicing clinician
and faculty member to develop an in-depth knowledge of the principles of human genetics,
given that they are applicable to such a wide variety of clinical presentations.

To enhance the local capacity for teaching, research and extension in agriculture and rural development, the QBII, AFFS, DPI proposes to focus its project on the key priority area of agriculture, and livestock improvement in Vietnam, and within these areas, to deliver activities in the disciplines of biotechnology and genetic improvement as highlighted as a priority area by the Government of Vietnam (GOV) in the Vietnam - Australia Development Cooperation Program, CARD Program Guidelines.
Chapter 2 covers the basic principles of inheritance, first described by Mendel, that form the foundation of the Laws of Segregation and Independent Assortment. You will see in chapter 4 how these laws relate to chromosome segregation during meiosis.
Chapter 3 - Extensions to Mendel's laws. In this chapter, students will be able to: Understand incomplete dominance and its relationship to blood type, understand the idea of and give examples of pleiotropy, understand complementary gene action.
Chapter 4 - The chromosome theory of inheritance. The main contents of this chapter include all of the following: Chromosomes - The carriers of genes, mitosis: cell division that preserves chromosome number, meiosis: cell divisions that halve chromosome number, gametogenesis, validation of the chromosome theory.
Research objectives: Thesis was the first studied methodically systematic assessment of genetic diversity by morphological indicators combined with molecular markers, identification of Vietnamese native Dendroium species based on the ITS sequences. The results of the thesis have significance in the classification, the conservation service, and selection and breed new varieties; these will be contributing to improve Vietnam orchids.

(BQ) Present study attempts to model and optimize the complex electrical discharge machining (EDM) process using soft computing techniques. Artificial neural network (ANN) with back propagation algorithm is used to model the process. As the output parameters are conflicting in nature so there is no single combination of cutting parameters, which provides the best machining performance. A multi-objective optimization method, non-dominating sorting genetic algorithm-II is used to optimize the process.
