Bermudagrass (Cynodon spp.) is extensively cultivated for forage and turf in the the southern United States and in parts of Asia, Africa, southern Europe, Australia and South America. However, few simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers are available for bermudagrass genetics research. Accordingly, the objective of this study was to develop SSR markers in(More)
Friedreich ataxia, the most prevalent inherited ataxia, is caused by an expanded GAA triplet-repeat sequence in intron 1 of the FXN gene. Repressive chromatin spreads from the expanded GAA triplet-repeat sequence to cause epigenetic silencing of the FXN promoter via altered nucleosomal positioning and reduced chromatin accessibility. Indeed, deficient(More)
OBJECTIVE Assess maternal psychological functioning within the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and its contribution to neonate length of stay (LOS) in the NICU. STUDY DESIGN Mothers of infants admitted to the NICU (n=111) were assessed regarding postpartum depression, postpartum social support, postpartum NICU stress, and maternal anxiety at 2 weeks(More)
INTRODUCTION Vaccinating healthcare workers (HCWs) in long-term care facilities (LTCFs) may effectively induce herd immunity and protect residents against influenza-related morbidity and mortality. We used influenza surveillance data from all LTCFs in New Mexico to validate a transmission dynamics model developed to investigate herd immunity induction. (More)
Switchgrass (Panicum virgatum L.) is a naturally allogamous species. Recent studies indicated conditional self-compatibility exists in the species and can be used to produce inbreds for the exploitation of heterosis in biomass production. However, efficient and reliable bagging methods are unavailable for development of inbreeding. This study was designed(More)
BACKGROUND Single-center studies suggest an increasing incidence of acute pancreatitis (AP) in children. Our specific aims were to (i) estimate the recent secular trends, (ii) assess the disease burden, and (iii) define the demographics and comorbid conditions of AP in hospitalized children within the United States. METHODS We used the Healthcare Cost and(More)
DNA barcodes are short strands of 255-700 nucleotide bases taken from the cytochrome c oxidase subunit 1 (COI) region of the mitochondrial DNA. It has been proposed that these barcodes may be used as a method of differentiating between biological species. Current methods of species classification utilize distance measures that are heavily dependent on both(More)
