Snake venomics of the Siamese Russell's viper (Daboia russelli siamensis) -- relation to pharmacological activities.
The venom proteome of Daboia russelli siamensis, a snake of medical importance in several Asian countries, was analysed by 2-D electrophoresis, subsequent MS/MS and enzymatic assays. The proteomeExpand

Soil Fungal:Bacterial Ratios Are Linked to Altered Carbon Cycling
Despite several lines of observational evidence, there is a lack of consensus on whether higher fungal:bacterial (F:B) ratios directly cause higher soil carbon (C) storage. We employed RNAExpand
