Smart shape-memory polymers can memorize and recover their permanent shape in response to an external stimulus (for example, heat). They have been extensively exploited for a wide spectrum of applications ranging from biomedical devices to aerospace morphing structures. However, most of the existing shape-memory polymers are thermoresponsive and their(More)
Eleven polymorphic and three monomorphic microsatellite loci were developed for Dermacentor albipictus using three methods: (1) screening of a microsatellite enriched genomic DNA library, (2) in silico screening of EST libraries, and (3) adapting loci previously developed for D. variabilis (Say). An average of 4.91 alleles was detected per polymorphic(More)
