In this paper, we describe a system by which the multilingual characteristics of Wikipedia can be utilized to annotate a large corpus of text with Named Entity Recognition (NER) tags requiring minimal human intervention and no linguistic expertise. This process, though of value in languages for which resources exist, is particularly useful for less commonly(More)
Excitatory amino acid transporters in the central and peripheral nervous systems of insects are thought to assist in maintaining glutamate concentrations in the resting synapse below the activation threshold of glutamate receptors. We have isolated a cDNA from the caterpillar Trichoplusia ni which encodes a high-affinity Na+-dependent glutamate transporter,(More)
The gene for the catalytic RNA subunit of RNase P has been isolated from several Enterobacteriaceae by complementation of an Escherichia coli strain that is temperature-sensitive for RNase P activity. The selection procedure relies on the ability of the heterologous gene products to function enzymatically in E. coli. This procedure obviates the need for(More)
