Goal It is to provide scientific arguments about the biological characteristics, and reproductive and rearing techniques of Channa lucius. The success of the project will contribute greatly to the development process of Channa lucius hatchery to supply artificial fish for aquaculture systems and renewable fish resources in the wild in the Mekong Delta as well as in the whole country.
Most information extraction systems either use hand written extraction patterns or use a machine learning algorithm that is trained on a manually annotated corpus. Both of these approaches require massive human effort and hence prevent information extraction from becoming more widely applicable. In this paper we present URES (Unsupervised Relation Extraction System), which extracts relations from the Web in a totally unsupervised way.
Compared to other ecosystems, wetlands have received an exceptional amount of
attention. Wetlands are valuable as sources, sink and transformers of a multitude
of chemical, biological and genetic materials. They stabilize water supplies, clean
polluted waters, protect shorelines, and recharge groundwater aquifers. They have
increasingly become recognized for their unique ecological functions in the
environment and are the focus of increased research by scientists and study
programs by schools, communities, and nature centers.

Molecular markers from the transcribed region of the genome can offer potential for various
applications in plant genotyping as they reveal polymorphisms that might be directly
related to gene function. A novel marker system called Start Codon Targeted Polymorphism
(SCoT) was described by Collard & Mackill (2009b), based on the observation that the short
conserved regions of plant genes are surrounded by the ATG translation start codon
(Sawant et al., 1999). The technique uses single primers designed to anneal to the flanking
regions of the ATG initiation codon on both DNA strands.
Second, the prospects for major child health reform will diminish as resources
become increasingly scarce.Health care spending that is already hitting the “high-
water mark” of 16 percent of U.S. gross domestic product (GDP) and predictably
increasing in the face of the next wave of genomics-driven technological innova-
tions will be swamped by the approaching “Silver Tsunami.
From the authorities’ perspective, the trade-off between financial stability and efficiency will
vary depending on a country’s status as home or host to cross-border banking groups. Home
authorities might prefer a cross-border bank structure with stricter firewalls across parts of
the group (the subsidiary model) when their banks expand into countries with weak
economies and a risky business environment.
Syngenta Seeds’ Gary Wietgrefe points out several of the impediments to
widespread adoption of HTF corn (Ed Zdrojewski in BioFuels Journal,
2003b). To begin with, starch and ethanol yield vary by geographic region
and from year to year, making an optimizing hybrid choice difficult.
Further, choosing a hybrid that maximizes ethanol qualities may mean a
tradeoff with yield and other potentially valuable qualities, such as protein
content and even test weight (because of moisture). Testing equipment pres-
ents its own challenges.
Students should check their experiments every day for signs of growth. Care should be
employed when examining the sponges under a stereomicroscope since the gemmules may take
more than a day to attach firmly to the bottom of the well. Magnification at 30 X or less should be
sufficient for the visualization of growth. As the experiments progress, students will be able to
detect major growth abnormalities immediately, but should also look for more subtle developmental
abnormalities (such as the absence of a well defined water vascular system).
Reliable prediction of specific transcription factor target genes is a major
challenge in systems biology and functional genomics. Current
sequence-based methods yield many false predictions, due to the short and
degenerated DNA-binding motifs.
A 37 residue peptide, aglycin, has been purified from porcine intestine. The
sequence is identical to that of residues 27–63 of plant albumin 1 B precur-sor (PA1B, chain b) from pea seeds. Aglycin resists in vitro proteolysis by
pepsin, trypsin and Glu-C protease, compatible with its intestinal occur-rence and an exogenous origin from plant food.

This meeting, organized by Richard Flavell (Ceres, Malibu, USA) and Rob Martienssen (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, USA), brought together a diverse group of speakers for a discussion of plant genome organization and the types of variation that exist between and within species. This report focuses on the consequences of this variation on phenotype, and the basis of this variation at the DNA and epigenetic
In the thirteenth century the manorial system may be said to have been in its zenith; the description therefore of Cuxham Manor in Oxfordshire at that date is of special interest. According to Professor Thorold Rogersthere were two principal tenants, each holding the fourth part of a military fee. The prior of Holy Trinity, Wallingford, held a messuage, a mill, and 6 acres of land in free alms; i.e. under no obligation or liability other than offering prayers on behalf of the donor. A free tenant had a messuage and 33/4 acres, the rent of which was 3s. a...
Abrus pulchellusseeds contain at least seven closely related and highly toxic
type 2 ribosome-inactivating pulchellins, each consisting of a toxic A-chain
linked to a sugar binding B-chain. In the present study, four pulchellin
isoforms (termed P I, P II, P III and P IV) were isolated by affinity, ion
exchange and chromatofocusing chromatographies, and investigated with
respect to toxicity and sugar binding specificity.
