We performed a prospective study of 110 patients (75 not previously published) with the 11q terminal deletion disorder (previously called Jacobsen syndrome), diagnosed by karyotype. All the patients have multiple dysmorphic features. Nearly all the patients (94%) have Paris-Trousseau syndrome characterized by thrombocytopenia and platelet dysfunction. In(More)
Recent studies have identified a (CCG)n repeat in the 5' untranslated region of the CBL2 protooncogene (11q23.3) and have demonstrated that expansion of this repeat causes expression of the folate-sensitive fragile site FRA11B. It has also been demonstrated that FRA11B is the site of breakage in some cases of Jacobsen syndrome (JS) involving terminal(More)
There is increasing evidence that pathogens can play a significant role in species decline. This study of a complete free-living species reveals a cost of blood parasitism to an endangered host, the Pink Pigeon Columba mayeri, endemic to Mauritius. We investigated the prevalence and effect of infection of the blood parasite, Leucocytozoon marchouxi, in the(More)
Sandalwood oil is one of the world's most highly prized essential oils, appearing in many high-end perfumes and fragrances. Extracted from the mature heartwood of several Santalum species, sandalwood oil is comprised mainly of sesquiterpene olefins and alcohols. Four sesquiterpenols, α-, β-, and epi-β-santalol and α-exo-bergamotol, make up approximately 90%(More)
While today's IT students may have a theoretical knowledge of all the phases in the systems development lifecycle, they often have little exposure to software development core practices. Few are able to build a new system from scratch. This paper examines a pedagogical approach to modern software engineering based on "doing" systems development from day(More)
