Staphylococcus warneri is a Gram-positive bacterium commonly found in human skin flora. The genome of a laboratory S. warneri isolate, strain SG1, was sequenced to explore its mechanism of solvent tolerance and its potential as a chassis for biofuel production.
The aim of this investigation is to compare different mathematical models of the liver in the context of in vitro-in vivo correlation. We reanalyze drugs from the Houston reviews [1, 2], and compare the mathematical models. For the well-stirred model, a particular form of the distributed tubes model, and the dispersion model, fits are done to in vitro and… (More)
The Traveling Salesman Problem involves finding the shortest possible route visiting all destinations on a map only once before returning to the point of origin. The present study demonstrates a strategy for solving Traveling Salesman Problems using modified E. coli cells as processors for massively parallel computing. Sequential, combinatorial DNA assembly… (More)
New Zealand Maoris (72 X chromosomes) have been compared with Pacific Island Polynesians (121 X chromosomes) and Caucasian New Zealanders (51 X chromosomes) as a control group to determine the allelic frequency of six RFLPs associated with the genes for two X linked diseases (haemophilia A and haemophilia B). RFLPs examined were BclI, XbaI, and BglI within… (More)
To investigate the regulation of phorbol ester-stimulated synthesis of phosphatidylcholine (PtdCho), myristoylated alanine-rich protein kinase C substrate (MARCKS) and the alpha-isoform of protein kinase C (PKC-alpha) were overexpressed in a human neuroblastoma (SK-N-MC) cell line that does not increase PtdCho synthesis in response to… (More)
