Genomic projects heavily depend on genome annotations and are limited by the current deficiencies in the published predictions of gene structure and function. It follows that, improved annotation will allow better data mining of genomes, and more secure planning and design of experiments. The purpose of the GeneFarm project is to obtain homogeneous,(More)
The effect of supplying either nitrate or ammonium on nitrate reductase activity (NRA) was investigated in Brassica napus seedlings. In roots, nitrate reductase activity (NRA) increased as a function of nitrate content in tissues and decreased when ammonium was the sole nitrogen source. Conversely, in the shoots (comprising the cotyledons and hypocotyl),(More)
The intrinsic positive-end-expiratory pressure (PEEPi) increases the inspiratory load, the cost of breathing and thus oxygen consumption (V(O2)). It has been shown that applying an extrinsic positive-end-expiratory pressure (PEEPe) reduces the inspiratory threshold load but the optimal PEEPe level is still in debate. We hypothesize that the best level of(More)
