Underwriter Reputation, Initial Returns, and the Long‐Run Performance of IPO Stocks
We find that the underperformance of IPO stocks relative to the market over a three-year holding period is less severe for IPOs handled by more prestigious underwriters. Consistent with priorExpand
MADS-box gene family in rice: genome-wide identification, organization and expression profiling during reproductive development and stress
A comprehensive annotation and transcriptome profiling undertaken in this investigation adds to the understanding of the involvement of MADS-box family genes during reproductive development and stress in rice and also provides the basis for selection of candidate genes for functional validation studies.

Global, regional, and national incidence, prevalence, and years lived with disability for 310 diseases and injuries, 1990–2015: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2015
Ageing of the world's population is increasing the number of people living with sequelae of diseases and injuries, and a summary indicator that combines measures of income per capita, educational attainment, and fertility (the Socio-demographic Index) is created and used to compare observed patterns of health loss to the expected pattern for countries or locations with similar SDI scores.

Global, regional, and national life expectancy, all-cause mortality, and cause-specific mortality for 249 causes of death, 1980–2015: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2015
The Global Burden of Disease 2015 Study provides a comprehensive assessment of all-cause and cause-specific mortality for 249 causes in 195 countries and territories from 1980 to 2015, finding several countries in sub-Saharan Africa had very large gains in life expectancy, rebounding from an era of exceedingly high loss of life due to HIV/AIDS.

Global, regional, and national comparative risk assessment of 79 behavioural, environmental and occupational, and metabolic risks or clusters of risks, 1990–2015: a systematic analysis for the Global
The comparative risk assessment framework developed for previous iterations of the Global Burden of Disease Study 2015 was used to estimate attributable deaths, disability-adjusted life-years (DALYs), and trends in exposure by age group, sex, year, and geography for 79 behavioural, environmental and occupational risks or clusters of risks from 1990 to 2015.

Venture Capital Reputation, Post-IPO Performance and Corporate Governance
We examine the association of a venture capital (VC) firm’s reputation with the post-initial public offering (IPO) long-run performance of its portfolio firms. We find that VC reputation, measured byExpand

Mapping of quantitative trait loci for basmati quality traits in rice (Oryza sativa L.)
A set of 209 recombinant inbred lines developed from a cross between basmati quality variety Pusa 1121 and a contrasting quality breeding line Pusa 1342 were used to map the quantitative trait loci (QTLs) for seven important quality traits namely grain length, grain breadth, cooked kernel elongation ratio, amylose content, alkali spreading value, and aroma.

The Axes of Rotation of the Knee
The authors used a mechanical device to locate the FE and the LR axes of six fresh anatomic specimen knees, and images in planes perpendicular to the FE axis showed a circular profile for the femoral condyles. Expand
