Synergistic impacts of heat shock and spawning on the physiology and immune health of Crassostrea gigas: an explanation for summer mortality in Pacific oysters.
Mass mortality is often observed in cultured oysters during the period following spawning in the summer season. To examine the underlying causes leading to this phenomenon, thermotolerance of theExpand

The Family of CD26/DPIV and Related Ectopeptidases
DPIV is the best understood proteinase that has the rare capability of hydrolysing the prolyl bond (Gorrell et al 2001). Members of several other enzyme families have this capability, includingExpand

Changes in the content of fructans and arabinoxylans during baking processes of leavened and unleavened breads
Abstract Fructans and arabinoxylans (AXs) are prebiotics naturally occurring in cereal grains which have well-known beneficial effects on human health. However, the majority of grains consumed byExpand

Parallelization in a spatially explicit individual-based ecological model—1: spatial data interpolation
TLDR
We compare parallel implementations for spatial data interpolation on two parallel computers, MasPar MP-2 and CM-5, with sequential implementations on a serial computer, SUN SPARCStation 20/61. Expand
