Neurospora crassa is a central organism in the history of twentieth-century genetics, biochemistry and molecular biology. Here, we report a high-quality draft sequence of the N. crassa genome. The approximately 40-megabase genome encodes about 10,000 protein-coding genes--more than twice as many as in the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe and only(More)
Good reliability was found in EEG spectra recorded during resting conditions in two studies 1-3 years apart in groups of adolescent dyslexic and control boys who were well screened for neurological, sensory and emotional disabilities. The studies used different equipment and analysis (FFT in study 1 vs. iterative digital bandpass filters in study 2). The(More)
This paper discusses a qualitative participatory action research study, which examined the nature of the cohort learning experience in an online master's program, from both faculty and student perspectives. After describing this online master's program in adult education designed from a social constructivist theoretical frame, this paper discusses two(More)
Fatty acid composition was determined during several stages of sexual development in Neurospora crassa. Triacylglycerol was the predominant acyl lipid in cultures undergoing sexual development. The absolute amounts of triacylglycerol in fertilized cultures varied over time, in contrast to control (unfertilized or mock-fertilized) cultures, in which the(More)
The purpose of this study was to develop a measure of learned helplessness. Based on a review of the literature, 50 items were developed for inclusion in the proposed Learned Helplessness Scale (LHS). On the basis of independent reviews by three experts, 20 items were selected for inclusion in the LHS. An individual's response to each item was graded, using(More)
