The mammaglobin gene encodes a novel, breast cancer-associated glycoprotein. In this study, we have evaluated the frequency with which mammaglobin expression can be detected in primary and metastatic breast tumors and in breast tumor cells present in the peripheral circulation. Of 100 primary human breast tumors examined, 81 were strongly immunopositive for(More)
Genome annotations are accumulating rapidly and depend heavily on automated annotation systems. Many genome centers offer annotation systems but no one has compared their output in a systematic way to determine accuracy and inherent errors. Errors in the annotations are routinely deposited in databases such as NCBI and used to validate subsequent annotation(More)
OBJECTIVE To review clinical data on bone ossification agents that may be considered for use in the treatment of osteoporosis and osteopenia in HIV-infected patients. DATA SOURCES A literature search was performed using MEDLINE (1950-January 2008), EMBASE, PubMed, and abstracts from major HIV conferences (February 2001-October 2007). These searches were(More)
In this contribution, we look at technology transfer in robotics. Generally, there is a delay between a science-push and a market-pull. In order of finding means to decrease this lag, we are going to look at the causes of this effect and at the means for improving technology transfer. For this purpose, we use a variety of data sources which shed light on(More)
Bone cements for vertebroplasty must have a much better radiocontrast level than cements for knee or hip arthroplasty. This is generally accomplished by adding a relatively large portion of BaSO(4), although this affects the physical-mechanical and biological properties of the cement. This prompted us to develop an alternative radiopaque cement, on the(More)
NOTICE This technical report does not necessarily represent final EPA decisions or positions. It is intended to present technical analysis of issues using data which are currently available. The purpose in the release of such reports is to facilitate the exchange of technical information and to inform the public of technical developments which may form the(More)

The field of genomics holds incredible potential, and it is imperative that students are exposed to the opportunities that the field offers to prepare the future generations of scientists and leaders. However, as a discipline that continues to develop, genomics still provides many issues that must be addressed, particularly with regards to the computerized(More)
The purpose of this study was to compare the annotation abilities of three different databases: Joint Genome Institute (JGI), Rapid Annotation using Subsystems Technology server (RAST) and the J. Craig Venter Institute’s annotation database: Manatee. Understanding the strengths and weaknesses of certain annotation tools can be very beneficial to gaining a(More)
The implementation of bioinformatics tools to produce automated annotations is a great advancement for the field of genomics, because it gives researchers more information to decode their genome and allows them to do so more rapidly. However, there are multiple automated annotation tools, and each completes the task in a slightly different manner. In this(More)
