Carrageenans extracted from Chondracanthus teedei var. lusitanicus were studied in order to determine their potential antifungal activity. FTIR-ATR and FT-Raman spectroscopic analysis confirmed the presence of a hybrid kappa/iota carrageenan belonging to the gametophyte phase and a hybrid xi/theta carrageenan in the tetrasporophyte phase. Kappa/iota and(More)
It has been a challenge to extract relevant information that lead to a more effective understanding of the interactions between students and tutors in Distance Education (DE) courses. This work aims at presenting this relation through statistics analyses based on multiple linear regression algorithms and on Educational Data Mining (EDM). It is proposed the(More)
