Microclimate modelling at macro scales: a test of a general microclimate model integrated with gridded continental-scale soil and weather data
The microclimate experienced by organisms is determined by local weather conditions. Yet the environmental data available for predicting the effect of climate on the distribution and abundance of organisms are typically ...
Development of rapid strain typing of aedes mosquito by random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD)
In this study, we were able to identify individual mosquito larva of Aedes aegypti in terms of their discrete ability to function as vector for Dengue virus using RAPD fingerprinting of genomic DNA. Four different methodologies ...
A pipeline for analysis of published abstracts for information on protein-protein interactions
There have been large volumes of literature published on mouse intracellular protein-protein interactions. However, there have been little attempts to aggregate these information into a usable model or concept map of ...
Design of low-cost autonomous water quality monitoring system
Good water quality is essential for the health of our aquatic ecosystems. Continuous water quality monitoring is an important tool for catchment management authorities, providing real-time data for environmental protection ...
Reconstruction and in vivo analysis of the extinct tbx5 gene from ancient wingless moa (Aves: Dinornithiformes)
(BIOMED CENTRAL LTD, 2014-05-14)
BACKGROUND: The forelimb-specific gene tbx5 is highly conserved and essential for the development of forelimbs in zebrafish, mice, and humans. Amongst birds, a single order, Dinornithiformes, comprising the extinct wingless ...
Enhancing genome assemblies by integrating non-sequence based data.
INTRODUCTION: Many genome projects were underway before the advent of high-throughput sequencing and have thus been supported by a wealth of genome information from other technologies. Such information frequently takes the ...
