BACKGROUND More than ten subgenotypes of genotype C Hepatitis B virus (HBV) have been reported, including C1 to C16 and two C/D recombinant subgenotypes (CD1 and CD2), however, inconsistent designations of these subgenotypes still exist. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS We performed a phylogenetic analysis of all full-length genotype C HBV genome sequences(More)
We report electrical transport measurements on a suspended ultra-low-disorder graphene nanoribbon (GNR) with nearly atomically smooth edges that reveal a high mobility exceeding 3000 cm 2 V −1 s −1 and an intrinsic band gap. The experimentally derived band gap is in quantitative agreement with the results of our electronic structure calculations on chiral(More)
MrBayes is model-based phylogenetic inference tool using Bayesian statistics. However, model-based assessment of phylogenetic trees adds to the computational burden of tree-searching, and so poses significant computational challenges. Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) have been proposed as high performance, low cost acceleration platforms and several(More)
