The Biomolecular Interaction Network Database (BIND) (http://bind.ca) archives biomolecular interaction, reaction, complex and pathway information. Our aim is to curate the details about molecular interactions that arise from published experimental research and to provide this information, as well as tools to enable data analysis, freely to researchers(More)
The purpose of this study was a detailed characterization of Shewanella sp. O23S, a strain involved in arsenic transformation in ancient gold mine waters contaminated with arsenic and other heavy metals. Physiological analysis of Shewanella sp. O23S showed that it is a facultative anaerobe, capable of growth using arsenate, thiosulfate, nitrate, iron or(More)
In summer, 1976 an epidemic of Kerato Conjunctivitis commenced in Melbourne, Australia. A total of 422 patients was studied in the adeno-viral clinic at the Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital, Melbourne, from 1976 to 1979. Most patients were referred from the Casualty Department of the hospital, but others came from private practice. A total of 72 cases(More)
Culture experiments employing Fe-deficient medium showed that a consortium of indigenous microorganisms isolated from Kupferschiefer black shale produced a mixture of extracellular compounds containing siderophores which could form complexes with a wide range of elements and were able to mediate element mobilization from polymetallic black shale. The(More)
The Pocklington (Keeler-Konan) wide field specular microscope has been in use for 18 months at the Corneal Diseases Unit, The Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital, Melbourne. In this study, the microscope has been applied clinically to assess the state of the corneal endothelium and to evaluate comparative endothelial cell density and morphology in certain(More)
A large part of the organic carbon present in the lithosphere is trapped in fossil organic matter deposited in sedimentary rocks. Only specialized microorganisms are able to degrade it contributing to the return of the carbon to the global cycle. The role of bacteria in this process is not yet completely understood. In the present laboratory studies,(More)
It is almost one year since the Corneal Diseases Unit of The Royal Victorian Eye and Ear Hospital began preliminary evaluation of the Pocklington Keeler-Konan Wide-Field Specular Microscope. With this instrument, approximately one square millimetre of living human corneal endothelial cells can be observed and photographed. This relatively large area gives a(More)
