Chromosomal translocations involve exchange of genetic material between non- homologous chromosomes leading to the formation of a fusion gene with altered function. The clinical consequences of non-random and recurrent chromosomal translocations have been so well...

Background. Accurate time-energy budgets summarise an animal’s energy expenditure in a given environment and are potentially a sensitive indicator of how an animal responds to changing resources. Deriving accurate time-energy budgets requires a precise measure...

The surgical skills required to successfully maintain hemostasis, the control of operative blood, requires considerable deliberate practice. Hemostasis requires the deft orchestration of bi-dexterous tool manipulation. We present our approach to computationally...

In this study we investigated the influence of rice wine (Jinbiao, Yinbiao, Wunianchen, Nv’erhong) on the activity of endogenous proteases, myofibrillar degradation and quality characteristics in topmouth culter muscle. Rice wines had pH of about 4.3, and micromolar...

Dot plots are widely used to quickly compare sequence sets. They provide a synthetic similarity overview, highlighting repetitions, breaks and inversions. Different tools have been developed to easily generated genomic alignment dot plots, but they are often limited...

High-depth sequencing of universal marker genes such as the 16S rRNA gene are a common strategy to profile microbial communities. Traditionally, sequence reads are clustered into operational taxonomic units (OTUs) at a defined identity threshold to avoid sequencing...

We report on a discovery of Siamophryne troglodytes Gen. et sp. nov., a new troglophilous genus and species of microhylid frog from a limestone cave in the tropical forests of western Thailand. To assess its phylogenetic relationships we studied the 12S rRNA–16S...

Direct documentation of the ecology of past life is often rare when the fossil record is comparatively poor, as in the case of the terrestrial fauna of the Maastrichtian of eastern North America. Here, I describe a femur and partial tibia shaft assignable to theropods...
