Predicting progression of mild cognitive impairment to dementia using neuropsychological data: a supervised learning approach using time windows

BMC Med Inform Decis Mak
PMCID: 5517828
PMID: 28724366
DOI: 10.1186/s12911-017-0497-2

[…] d completing assessment with a neuropsychological battery designed to evaluate multiple cognitive domains and validated for the Portuguese population (Bateria de Lisboa para Avaliação das Demências – BLAD []). The exclusion criteria for the admission to CCC were diagnosis of dementia (according to DSM-IV []) or other disorders that may cause cognitive impairment, namely stroke, brain tumor, signif […]


Use of SNP genotypes to identify carriers of harmful recessive mutations in cattle populations

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 5093950
PMID: 27809787
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-016-3218-9

[…] ion, all contribute to making modern cattle breeds particularly susceptible to recessive genetic disorders []. Examples of harmful recessive mutations in cattle include some long known mutations like BLAD (Bovine Leukocyte Adhesion Deficiency) [] and CVM (Complex Vertebral Malformation) [], and some recently detected mutations like the one in the CWC15 gene on BTA15 (haplotype JH1) in Jersey cattl […]


Development of a fast and economical genotyping protocol for bovine leukocyte adhesion deficiency (BLAD) in cattle

PMCID: 5005226
PMID: 27652018
DOI: 10.1186/s40064-016-3148-7

[…]  µl. The digestion cocktail contained 5–10 Units of enzyme. The digested products were separated on 3 % agarose gel and analyzed by AlphaImager EP gel doc system. For sequencing of a mutant allele of BLAD, 354 bp band obtained after gel separation of digested product were eluted and purified by gel extraction kit (Sigma, Aldrich) from the carrier animals. For sequencing of the wild type allele of […]


Novel Computational Protocols for Functionally Classifying and Characterising Serine Beta Lactamases

PLoS Comput Biol
PMCID: 4917113
PMID: 27332861
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pcbi.1004926

[…] provide some limited information about beta-lactamase antibiotic resistance specificity: the ARDB Antibiotic Resistance Genes Database ( [] and the Beta-LActamase Database, BLAD ( [].Developing a simple tool or database for relating a sequence cluster or motif to antibiotic specificity is likely to be challenging. This is well illustrated by the Bus […]
