Two plant genome size databases have been recently updated and/or extended: the Plant DNA C-values database (, and GSAD, the Genome Size in Asteraceae database ( While the first provides information on nuclear DNA contents across land plants and some algal groups, the second is focused on one(More)
UNLABELLED The Plant rDNA database ( is an open access online resource providing detailed information on numbers, structures and positions of 5S and 18S-5.8S-26S (35S) ribosomal DNA loci. The data have been obtained from >600 publications on plant molecular cytogenetics, mostly based on fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH).(More)
The position attributed in recent years to overvalued ideas between delusion and obsession and that are derived from the reduction of the construct per se to one of its characteristics, that is, insight, has undergone a critical review. Using a case with dysmorphophobic ideas, the difficulties to define it and differentiate it from delusion are proposed and(More)
The effects of iodized salt use on the quality of processed Philippine food products were evaluated. Samples for the study included dried-salted and smoked fish products, nitrite-cured pork, and fermented plain and flavored shrimp pastes. Generally, no significant differences were detected between the physicochemical, microbiological and sensory(More)
Here we present the third release of the plant rDNA database (March 2017), an open access online resource with information on numbers, locations and structure of 5S and 18S-5.8S-26S (35S) ribosomal DNA (rDNA) ( ). Data are now available for 2148 species (3783 entries), extracted from 785 papers published until the end of 2016. This(More)

The Deepwater Horizon (DWH) oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico was the largest maritime oil spill in history resulting in the accumulation of genotoxic substances in the air, soil, and water. This has potential far-reaching health impacts on cleanup field workers and on the populations living in the contaminated coastal areas. We have employed portable(More)
INTRODUCTION The importance of the influence of diet in the first few years of life on child growth and development and its relationship with the prevention of chronic diseases in childhood and adulthood has recently been stressed. The aim of the present study was to determine the presence or absence of inappropriate feeding practices, defined as(More)
Fe-based oxide dispersion strengthened (ODS) steels are oriented to applications where high operating temperatures and good corrosion resistance is paramount. However, their use is compromised by their fracture toughness, which is lower than other competing ferritic-martenstic steels. In addition, the route required in manufacturing these alloys generates(More)
