The handbook is written for mature readers with a great deal of rigorous
experience with either doing scientific research or writing scientific software.
However no specific background in computer science, statistics, or biology is
required to understand most of the chapters. In order to accommodate the
readers who wish to become professional computational biologists in the
future we also provide appendices that contain educationally sound glossaries
of terms and descriptions of major sequence analysis algorithms.
Facebook will morph from a relatively private social space
to a business entity driven by the bottom line. Brands will
need to tread carefully as they explore these new
opportunities. Some users will tolerate prominent
advertising in return for free access to their friends and
social connections, but others may balk at increased
commercialization. Seeing their personal data sold for
targeted advertising may cause resentment, unless brands
deliver engaging content that is appropriate for this
Molecules and assemblies of molecules with well-defined
secondary structures have been designed and characterized
by controllingnoncovalent interactions. By specifying
intermolecular interactions, a class of information-storing
molecular duplexes have been successfully developed. These
H-bonded molecular duplexes demonstrate programmable,
sequence-specificity and predictable, tunable stabilities.
Based on these highly specific molecular zippers (or glues),
a systematic approach todesigning self-assembled structures
is now feasible. ...
The relationship between macroeconomic variables and stock market returns
is, by now, well-documented in the literature. However, a void in the literature
relates to examining the cointegration between macroeconomic variables and
stock market’s sector indices rather than the composite index. Thus in this
paper we examine the long-term equilibrium relationships between selected
macroeconomic variables and the Singapore stock market index (STI), as well
as with various Singapore Exchange Sector indices—the ﬁnance index, the
property index, and the hotel index.
The available data does, however, suggest that present PM10 values exceed the recommended limit values
in the majority of Member States. In future projections, planned actions should be taken into
consideration. These include the SOx and NOx Protocols within UNECE and the Auto-Oil programme.
Abatement policies for other pollutants will also have an impact.

Ensuring the emergency services and the public know where and when it will flood, and how serious the
flooding is likely to be, is a complex task. The Environment Agency has increased the number of households and
businesses offered a flood warning service. We have also launched a new National Flood Forecasting Centre with
the Met Office that will allow us to better predict the scale and timing of flooding events and monitor them as they
The class of nonribosomally assembled siderophores encompasses a multi-tude of structurally diverse natural products. The genome of the erythro-mycin-producing strainSaccharopolyspora erythraeacontains 25 secondary
metabolite gene clusters that are mostly considered to be orphan, including
two that are responsible for siderophore assembly.
In plant secondary metabolism, b-acetal ester-dependent acyltransferases,
such as the 1-O-sinapoyl-b-glucose:l-malate sinapoyltransferase (SMT;
EC 220.127.116.11), are homologous to serine carboxypeptidases. Mutant analyses
and modeling of Arabidopsis SMT (AtSMT) have predicted amino acid
residues involved in substrate recognition and catalysis, confirming the
main functional elements conserved within the serine carboxypeptidase pro-tein family.
Secondary transmembrane transport carriers fall into families and super-families allowing prediction of structure and function. Here we describe
hundreds of sequenced homologues that belong to six families within a
novel superfamily, the bile⁄arsenite⁄riboflavin transporter (BART) super-family, of transport systems and putative signalling proteins.
The Internet creates one economy and one market. As
large as the online higher education market is in the U.S.,
the global opportunity is significantly greater. Unlike the
U.S. where post-secondary education is relatively
available, access to world-class post-secondary institutions
in many parts of the world is limited. Currently, there are
84 million students enrolled in higher education
worldwide. Global demand for higher education is
forecasted to reach 160 million by 2025 − if online
learning captures even half of this growth, there would be
40 million students for online education.
