Data file on amino acid distribution in calcified and uncalcified tissues of shell-forming organisms
MetadataShow full item record
Largely for reason of limited space, scientific journals can only accept brief articles. Thus full accounts on analytical techniques, data files, and other details are frequently omitted, and pertinent information may be lost. Although this information is only of peripheral interest to the general reader, to the fellow scientist it is of vital significance. In order to serve both the specialist and the general reader, we have prepared a series of manuscripts dealing exclusively with either background information or the actual interpretation and discussion of the data. The present report is aimed chiefly at the specialist interested in calcification processes in biological systems, in molluscan ecology and phylogeny, and in amino acid analyses. It incorporates information on: (a) type, locality, and environment of sample material, (b) analytical techniques, (c) utilization of a digital computer and (d) quantitative amino acid analysis in the form of data sheets, i,e. computer printouts.
