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)
Subducting slabs provide the main driving force for plate motion and flow in the Earth's mantle, and geodynamic, seismic and geochemical studies offer insight into slab dynamics and subduction-induced flow. Most previous geodynamic studies treat subduction zones as either infinite in trench-parallel extent (that is, two-dimensional) or finite in width but(More)
meanders. Given an accurate model and accurate forcing (wind stress and heat fluxes), the ocean model will generate mesoscale eddies (see Rhodes et al., this issue). The model may generate eddies with characteristics (size, propagation speed, decay time) similar to observed eddies. However, the mesoscale field is non-deterministic. The model will not(More)
