The Schizosaccharomyces pombe rad8 mutant is sensitive to both UV and gamma irradiation. We have cloned the rad8 gene by complementation of the UV sensitivity of a rad8.190 mutant strain. The gene comprises an open reading frame of 3.4 kb which does not contain any introns and is capable of encoding a 1133 amino acid protein of 129 kDa. Deletion of the gene(More)

Deforestation has claimed half of the world's original tropical forest lands. The result has been a decline in the land's inherent productivity, with serious repercussions on human welfare. One solution to this vast problem is reforestation. More specifically, tree planting on degraded lands can help restore land productivity as well as provide wood for(More)
