The minimum information about a genome sequence (MIGS) specification
With the quantity of genomic data increasing at an exponential rate, it is imperative that these data be captured electronically, in a standard format. Standardization activities must proceed withinExpand

Minimum information about a marker gene sequence (MIMARKS) and minimum information about any (x) sequence (MIxS) specifications
Here we present a standard developed by the Genomic Standards Consortium (GSC) for reporting marker gene sequences—the minimum information about a marker gene sequence (MIMARKS). We also introduce aExpand

Indecomposable Set-Theoretical Solutions to the Quantum Yang–Baxter Equation on a Set with a Prime Number of Elements
In this paper we show that all indecomposable nondegenerate set-theoretical solutions to the Quantum Yang-Baxter equation on a set of prime order are affine, which allows us to give a complete andExpand

Historical and biomechanical analysis of integration and dissociation in molluscan feeding, with special emphasis on the true limpets (Patellogastropoda: Gastropoda)
Modifications of the molluscan feeding apparatus have long been recognized as a crucial feature in molluscan diversification, related to the important process of gathering energy from theExpand
