Three plant cDNA libraries were expressed in yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) and screened on agar plates containing toxic concentrations of aluminum. Nine cDNAs were isolated that enhanced the aluminum tolerance of yeast. These cDNAs were constitutively expressed in Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana) and one cDNA from the roots of Stylosanthes hamata,(More)
PURPOSE Due to the increasing complexity of the surgical working environment, increasingly technical solutions must be found to help relieve the surgeon. This objective is supported by a structured storage concept for all relevant device data. METHODS In this work, we present a concept and prototype development of a storage system to address(More)
OBJECTIVE Effective time and resource management in the operating room requires process information concerning the surgical procedure being performed. A major parameter relevant to the intraoperative process is the remaining intervention time. The work presented here describes an approach for the prediction of the remaining intervention time based on(More)
INTRODUCTION Surgical workflow management is expected to enable situation-aware adaptation and intelligent systems behavior in an integrated operating room (OR). The overall aim is to unburden the surgeon and OR staff from both manual maintenance and information seeking tasks. A major step toward intelligent systems behavior is a stable classification of(More)
Ca(2+)-ions have a range of affinities to different proteins, depending on the various functions of these proteins. This makes the determination of Ca(2+)-protein affinities an interesting subject for functional studies. We have investigated the performance of two methods - Fold-X and AutoDock vina - in the prediction of Ca(2+)-protein affinities. Both(More)
Purpose Modern surgery relies on computers in many aspects ranging from department and patient data management to preoperative planning and intraoperative assistance. During the last 15 to 30 years, rapid progress was made in the development of Computer Assisted Surgery (CAS) systems. During the highly innovative phase of CAS technology and techniques, only(More)
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) offers a non-radioactive alternative for the non-invasive detection of tumours. Low molecular weight MRI contrast agents currently in clinical use suffer either from a lack of specificity for tumour tissue or from low relaxivity and thus low contrast amplification. In this study, we present the newly designed two domain(More)
