Soil community analysis along a salt gradient using denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis of PCR-a
Many studies of hyper saline environments have been performed, mainly on aquatic systems. However, the microbial community in terrestrial thallasohaline environments has not been studied extensively. To our knowledge, this is the first study of a natural terrestrial thallasohaline environment using polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE). We studied the great salt plains (GSP) for this purpose. The GSP is a perfect example of an extreme environment. The

Reassessment of intra- and extra-ovarian expression of growth differentiation factor-9
Mammalian ovarian organogenesis is characterized temporally by oogonial mitosis, oogonial apoptosis, rescue of germ cells via interaction with somatic cells to form primordial follicles, and entrance into meiosis. Recent studies suggest that germ cell’s activity participate in this process via the production of local regulatory factors. Growth differentiation factor-9 (GDF-9), a novel transforming growth factor-family member, is expressed in ovaries of various species as a crucial factor in ov

Finite element modeling of energy absorption characteristic of hybrid structure - composite wrapped
The study of axial crush behavior of metal and composite tube has become a basis for the design of crashworthy structure in automotive and aircraft applications. Unlike metals, polymer composite material displays little or no plastic deformation characteristics. Research has showed that the hybrid tube usually made of inner aluminum tube over-wrapped with Eglass fiber reinforced epoxy have significantly higher energy absorption than either aluminum tube or composite tube. It is therefore importa

Disappearing Red Shrimp
These legendary creatures may have something to teach us about survival, even as the clock is ticking on their habitats "As a child in Hawaii, I grew up exploring. Those experiences shaped my direction and interest in science," recalls molecular biologist Scott Santos. He remembers playing along the shore and swimming in the ponds imbedded in lava rocks. http://www.nsf.gov/news/special_reports/science_nation/index.jsp

The distributed developmental network - d2n: a social configuration to support design pattern genera
DiSessa et al. (2004) conducted a comparative study of how research teams design, develop and evaluate TEL software, in the context of component-based educational programming. They identified the issue of the social configuration of the production team as “a critical family of issues that are easily marginalized” (p.117). These social configurations are loosely equivalent to what Activity Theorists refer to as the rules and division of labour (Engeström, 1987) in the activity system of TEL pr
