Genetic diversity data were collected from a large population of common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) landraces representing the United States Department of Agriculture core collection. The data were based on microsatellite data from all linkage groups. A procedure was developed to determine if we collected sufficient marker data to adequately estimated(More)
Influenza A virus infection is a major global health concern causing significant mortality, morbidity, and economic loss. Antiviral chemotherapeutics that target influenza A virus are available; however, rapid emergence of drug-resistant strains has been reported. Consequently, there is a burgeoning need to identify novel anti-influenza A drugs,(More)
Influenza virus is a worldwide global health concern causing seasonal morbidity mortality and economic burden. Chemotherapeutics is available; however, rapid emergence of drug-resistant influenza virus strains has reduced its efficacy. Thus, there is a need to discover novel antiviral agents. In this study, RNA interference (RNAi) was used to screen host(More)
The use of Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) is a key to achieving technological leaps in the design and operation of engineering structures. Composite materials incorporating SHM systems enable the design and manufacture of tailored smart structures. This paper focuses on their application to aircraft as a means of highlighting the issues that face SHM in(More)
