OBJECTIVES To determine how important governmental, social, and economic factors are in driving antibiotic resistance compared to the factors usually considered the main driving factors-antibiotic usage and levels of economic development. DESIGN A retrospective multivariate analysis of the variation of antibiotic resistance in Europe in terms of human(More)
This paper describes the publication and linking of (parts of) PAROLE SIMPLE CLIPS (PSC), a large scale Italian lexicon, to the Semantic Web and the Linked Data cloud using the lemon model. The main challenge of the conversion is discussed, namely the reconciliation between the PSC semantic structure which contains richly encoded semantic information,(More)
Seed priming is a commercially successful practice, but reduced longevity of primed seeds during storage may limit its application. We established a series of experiments on rice to test: (1) whether prolonged storage of primed and non-primed rice seeds for 210 days at 25°C or -4°C would alter their viability, (2) how long primed rice seed would potentially(More)
Rice diseases (bacterial, fungal, or viral) threaten food productivity. Host resistance is the most efficient, environmentally friendly method to cope with such diverse pathogens. Quantitative resistance conferred by quantitative trait loci (QTLs) is a valuable resource for rice disease resistance improvement. Although QTLs confer partial but durable(More)
In this paper we look at how Generative Lexicon theory can assist in providing a more thorough definition of word senses as links between items in a RDF-based lexicon and concepts in an ontology. We focus on the definition of lexical sense in lemon and show its limitations before defining a new model based on lemon and which we term lemonGL. This new model(More)
This research investigates the hypothesis that the mere suggestion of sexism can harm women's experience of an instruction situation. Across three experiments, women exposed to the suggestion about the sexism of a male instructor reported a less positive experience, performed worse on a logic test, and rated the instructor as less competent than did women(More)
Plants are exposed to a variety of abiotic stresses in nature and exhibit unique and complex responses to these stresses depending on their degree of plasticity involving many morphological, cellular, anatomical, and physiological changes. Phytohormones are known to play vital roles in the ability of plants to acclimatize to varying environments, by(More)
Purple urine bag syndrome (PUBS) is a unique disease entity characterized by an alarming purple discoloration of the urine secondary to recurrent urinary tract infections with indigo- and indirubin-producing bacteria. It is usually associated with prolonged urinary catheterization and chronic debilitated states. We hereby present a concise review of this(More)
In this article we will outline two different vocabularies, both extensions of the lemon model, for representing diachronic lexico-semantic data on the Semantic Web. This is especially useful for representing the evolution of scientific terminologies where many terms are polysemous and or imported from other languages. The first vocabulary, polyLemon,(More)
