The episodic nature of natural selection and the accumulation of extreme sequence divergence in venom-encoding genes over long periods of evolutionary time can obscure the signature of positive Darwinian selection. Recognition of the true biocomplexity is further hampered by the limited taxon selection, with easy to obtain or medically important species(More)
Despite the unparalleled diversity of venomous snakes in Australia, research has concentrated on a handful of medically significant species and even of these very few toxins have been fully sequenced. In this study, venom gland transcriptomes were sequenced from eleven species of small Australian elapid snakes, from eleven genera, spanning a broad(More)
Current numerical methods have slow dynamic visualisation capability, which is usually separate from the calculation phase. This paper investigates whether an analogue virtual reality (VR) model of a structure can integrate calculation and visual representation. The paper shows how the user can interact with a VR analogue model of a cantilever beam, move a(More)
148 words < 350 words) Background: Pest insects are increasingly resistant to phosphine gas, which is used globally to protect grain reserves. The enzyme dihydrolipoamide dehydrogenase (DLD) is a phosphine resistance factor and participates in four key steps of core metabolism, making it a potential central metabolic regulator. Results: Here we used(More)
Visualisation is generally considered to be a problem in structural design. Being an iterative process, structural design is time consuming for engineers, and results are difficult for clients to visualize. Current numerical methods have slow dynamic visualisation capability, which is usually separate from the calculation phase. This paper investigates(More)
The paper describes a framework for transfer of models of virtual reality simulation of structural behaviour written in Virtual Reality Modelling Language (VRML) and JavaScript programming languages to a more suitable platform for engineering applications. The Open Inventor has been found to be the most appropriate platform for translation of results of(More)
