Was the problem 20 years ago one of scarceness of information (precious originals only to consult in major libraries), today's(More)
Androgens play key roles in vertebrate sex differentiation, gonadal maturation and reproductive behaviour and their actions are generally mediated through specific nuclear receptors. The present study describes the isolation, sequencing and characterization of the cDNA encoding the androgen receptor (AR) in the European sea bass. AR was cloned from a sea(More)
The teleost brain is characterized by exceptionally high levels of aromatase, the enzyme that converts androgens into estrogens, and by its continuous growth throughout life. Gonadal estrogens have been implicated in sex differentiation and the control of reproduction in adult fish, but the role of neural estrogens during early development is far from(More)
Today, we can observe a number of emerging trends in technologies for intelligent knowledge access, including search engines, categorisation tools and visualisation systems. This paper gives a brief overview of them, describes ongoing efforts to develop Semantic Web-based knowledge access tools and discusses how a semantic web-based approach can provide a(More)
