An oceanographic optical instrument has been designed and constructed to record the radiance distribution of natural radiant energy underwater. The instrument contains two cameras placed back-to-back, each equipped with a fisheye (180 degrees field of view) lens and is fabricated so that film can be exposed by remote control. The instrument is designed to(More)
The growth of a pseudomonad on 2,4-D (2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid) and 2,4-DCP (2,4-dichlorophenol) was studied in batch and continuous culture. The optimum growth rate using 2,4-D was 0.14/h at 25 C in a pH range from 6.2 to 6.9. Highest specific growth rate using 2,4-DCP was 0.12/h at 25 C in a pH range from 7.1 to 7.8. Growth was strongly inhibited by(More)
A method for applying Beer's law to the analysis of ocean or lake water is described. The method makes use of measurements of daylight irradiance for studying the quantum efficiency of in situ photosynthesis by phytoplankton populations. Alternatively, the method can make use of in situ beam transmittance measurements for monochromatic studies of ocean(More)
Chromatin exhibits increased mobility on DNA damage, but the biophysical basis for this behavior remains unknown. To explore the mechanisms that drive DNA damage-induced chromosome mobility, we use single-particle tracking of tagged chromosomal loci during interphase in live yeast cells together with polymer models of chromatin chains. Telomeres become(More)
A method is described for the quantitation of C2-C5 volatile fatty acids present in biological tissues. It involved recovery of the acids from their biological matrix by vacuum micro-distillation at room temperature, followed by gas phase separation of aqueous solutions on orthophosphoric acid-modified Phasepak Q columns. The subsequent gas chromatographic(More)
