Bacillus subtilis is the best-characterized member of the Gram-positive bacteria. Its genome of 4,214,810 base pairs comprises 4,100 protein-coding genes. Of these protein-coding genes, 53% are represented once, while a quarter of the genome corresponds to several gene families that have been greatly expanded by gene duplication, the largest family(More)
The Mechatronics Group of the University of Waikato have developed a fleet of five mobile robots capable of autonomous operation. These robots are constructed to traverse a variety of terrains including farms, forests, underwater and smooth indoor surfaces. MARVIN (Mobile Autonomous Robotic Vehicle for Indoor Navigation) is designed to act as a security(More)
The acquisition and maintenance of essential psychomotor skills that are only required sporadically is a significant problem in medical training and practice. It is of particular relevance to anesthesiologists with regard to fibreoptic intubation, a technique that may be under-utilized despite its central role in the management of the difficult airway.(More)
Within the framework of the international programme to sequence the genome of Bacillus subtilis strain 168, we were allocated the region between dnaB (256 degrees) and pheA (240 degrees). The sequencing of this region is now complete and we report our primary analysis of the 114 kb region containing 114 ORFs. In addition to previously characterized genes,(More)
The region between yvsA (293 degrees) and yvqA (289 degrees) of the Bacillus subtilis chromosome has been sequenced within the framework of the B. subtilis 168 international sequencing programme. A primary analysis of the 42 ORFs identified in this 43 kb region is presented. The region included a high proportion of genes that did not show homology with(More)
