Culturing of the first 37:4 predominant lacustrine haptophyte : geochemical, biochemical, and genetic implications
Long chain alkenones (LCAs) are potential biomarkers for quantitative paleotemperature reconstructions from lacustrine environments. However, progress in this area has been severely hindered by the lack of culture studies ...
Kin and population recognition in sympatric Lake Constance perch (Perca fluviatilis L.) : can assortative shoaling drive population divergence?
Prior studies have shown that perch (Perca fluviatilis L.) of Lake Constance belong to two genetically different but sympatric populations, and that local aggregations of juveniles and adults contain closely related kin. ...
Characterization of EST derived SSRs from the bay scallop, Argopecten irradians
Interest in bay scallop conservation has resulted in organized stock enhancement efforts and increased attention to fisheries management issues. Genetic markers can facilitate the monitoring of enhancement efforts, ...
NetiNeti : Discovery of Scientific Names from Text Using Machine Learning Methods Table 1
A scientific name for an organism can be associated with almost all biological data. Name identification is an important step in many text mining tasks aiming to extract useful information from biological, biomedical and ...
Xenopus staufen2 is required for anterior endodermal organ formation
Defining the regulatory molecular networks involved in patterning the developing anterior endoderm is essential to understanding how the pancreas, liver, stomach and duodenum are discretely specified from each other. In ...
Reconfigurable self-assembly through chiral control of interfacial tension
From determining optical properties of simple molecular crystals to establishing preferred handedness in highly complex vertebrates, molecular chirality profoundly influences the structural, mechanical, and optical properties ...
Adaptive evolution of voltage-gated sodium channels : the first 800 million years
Voltage-gated Na+-permeable (Nav) channels form the basis for electrical excitability in animals. Nav channels evolved from Ca2+ channels and were present in the common ancestor of choanoflagellates and animals although ...
Building research networks to support campus programs [poster]
This poster focuses on the methods, tools and outcomes involved in creating two targeted research networks to support large, long-running research programs in the Woods Hole scientific community.
Myosin concentration underlies cell size–dependent scalability of actomyosin ring constriction
(Rockefeller University Press, 2011-11-28)
In eukaryotes, cytokinesis is accomplished by an actomyosin-based contractile ring. Although in Caenorhabditis elegans embryos larger cells divide at a faster rate than smaller cells, it remains unknown whether a similar ...
Response of a summertime Antarctic marine bacterial community to glucose and ammonium enrichment
Along the western Antarctic Peninsula, marine bacterioplankton respond to the spring phytoplankton bloom with increases in abundance, production and growth rates, and a seasonal succession in bacterial community composition ...
