An optimized approach for local de novo assembly of overlapping paired end RAD reads from multiple individuals

PMCID: 5830760
PMID: 29515871
DOI: 10.1098/rsos.171589

[…] assembled rpe reads into contigs using different assembly tools [,,], such as the de bruijn graph (dbg) based software velvet [] and the overlap-layout-consensus (olc) based software cap3 [] and locas []. davey et al. [] demonstrated that velvetoptimiser was the best assembly tool for rad data by comparing nine assembly tools. however, hohenlohe et al. [] found cap3 performed much better […]

The neuropeptide F/nitric oxide pathway is essential for shaping locomotor plasticity underlying locust phase transition

PMCID: 5400507
PMID: 28346142
DOI: 10.7554/eLife.22526.039

[…] here. , we appreciate this suggestion. we have make a detailed comparison between the significance of no in the migratory locust and the observations concerning pkg activity in the desert locust (locas et al., 2010; rogers et al. 2004)., materials and methods , 6) while gregarious locusts were reared 500-1000 per cage, the crowding effect was achieved by placing 22 locust (2 s, 20 g) […]


A Wireless Monitoring System for Cracks on the Surface of Reactor Containment Buildings

PMCID: 4934309
PMID: 27314357
DOI: 10.3390/s16060883

[…] defense layer for a nuclear reactor, is designed to keep radioactive substances from getting into the environment in operational states and in accident conditions like loss of coolant accidents (locas), and protect the nuclear power plant against external natural and human induced events []. then, usually rcbs have to undergo pressure tests to verify that they comply with the highest safety […]


Reducing Emergency Department Visits for Acute Gastrointestinal Illnesses in North Carolina (USA) by Extending Community Water Service

PMCID: 5047767
PMID: 27203131
DOI: 10.1289/EHP160

[…] information on the public health risks of private well contamination. this finding supports results from a recent review of 20 years of research on pathogens in water by . specifically, payment and locas noted, “quite interestingly, in our studies of groundwater…, it was the nonfecal indicators, total coliforms, and aerobic endospores that were found most frequently in virus-positive samples.” […]


Furan in Thermally Processed Foods A Review

PMCID: 4609971
PMID: 26483883
DOI: 10.5487/TR.2015.31.3.241

[…] with amino acids or undergoes dehydration at the c-3 hydroxyl group. the resulting intermediate can undergo αdicarbonyl cleavage to produce 2-deoxyaldotetrose, which is a direct precursor of furan . locas reported that pentose acts in a manner similar to hexose and is converted into its 3-deoxyosone derivative after an amino acid reaction or elimination of the c-3 hydroxyl group . […]
