A 2.91-billion base pair (bp) consensus sequence of the euchromatic portion of the human genome was generated by the whole-genome shotgun sequencing method. The 14.8-billion bp DNA sequence was generated over 9 months from 27,271,853 high-quality sequence reads (5.11-fold coverage of the genome) from both ends of plasmid clones made from the DNA of five(More)
Clear-cut logging rapidly affects stream macroinvertebrates through substantial alteration of terrestrial-aquatic resource linkages; however, lesser known are the long-term influences of forest succession on benthic macroinvertebrate assemblages, which play key roles in stream ecosystem function. We compared secondary production and standing crops of(More)
Learning: Undergraduate The long-term increase in the number of Biological Sciences majors continued in 2008; the total number of majors has risen by 40% since 2002. Coupled with faculty retirements and a slow pace of faculty hiring, this trend continues to place pressures on meeting teaching needs. Despite the pressures, many Biological Sciences majors(More)
