In this paper we develop a mathematical model for the rapid production of large quantities of therapeutic and preventive countermeasures. We couple equations for biomass production with those for vaccine production in shrimp that have been infected with a recombinant viral vector expressing a foreign antigen. The model system entails both size and class-age(More)
Over the past decade, aquaculture has grown at an average annual growth rate of approximately 6 % worldwide despite many challenges. Viral diseases are one of the major challenges that are threatening a sustainable growth of finfish farming globally. Vaccination of farmed fish plays an important role in commercial fish farming to mitigate viral diseases. In(More)
A critical factor in implementing microalgal biofuels for mass production is the nutrient requirements. The current study investigated the fate of macro- and micronutrients and their availability in a sequential phototrophic-heterotrophic production process for the lipid rich microalga Auxenochlorella protothecoides. More than 99 % (by weight) of overall(More)
Economically feasible and sustainable energy production from microalgae requires optimization of algal growth, maximization of lipid content, and enhancement of biomass conversion into energy. An innovative, mixed trophic state process with high productivity was implemented to generate microalgae with high lipid content for generating biodiesel and biogas.(More)
A comprehensive investigation of the Taura syndrome virus (TSV) isolate that caused epizootics in shrimp farms in Texas in 2004 (Texas isolate) revealed that this virus was more virulent in laboratory bioassays than the TSV reference isolate, Hawaii 1994, causing severe symptom development and rapid mortality. Histopathology of moribund animals demonstrated(More)
and valproate was not observed at concentrations exceeding their therapeutic ranges. A survey of library mass spectra indicated that some compounds can yield a 153 m/z or 167 m/z ion on electron impact ionization. These included allobarbital, p-aminosalicylic acid, and diphenylpyraline; however, these compounds were considered highly unlikely components of(More)
