The microbial conversion of solid cellulosic biomass to liquid biofuels may provide a renewable energy source for transportation fuels. Endophytes represent a promising group of organisms, as they are a mostly untapped reservoir of metabolic diversity. They are often able to degrade cellulose, and they can produce an extraordinary diversity of metabolites.(More)
Neocarzinostatin (NCS) is the archetypal member of the chro-moprotein family of antitumor antibiotics that consists of an apoprotein and an enediyne chromophore. 1 The NCS chromophore (1) is composed of a nine-membered enediyne core, a deoxy-aminosugar, and a naphthoic acid moiety (Figure 1). We have previously cloned and sequenced the NCS biosynthetic gene(More)
Objectives: Since 9/11, Incident Command System (ICS) and Emergency Operations Center (EOC) are relatively new concepts to public health, which typically operates using less hierarchical and more collaborative approaches to organizing staff. This paper describes the 2009 H1N1 influenza outbreak in San Diego County to explore the use of ICS and EOC in public(More)
