The Department of Energy (DOE) Joint Genome Institute (JGI) is a national user facility with massive-scale DNA sequencing and analysis capabilities dedicated to advancing genomics for bioenergy and environmental applications. Beyond generating tens of trillions of DNA bases annually, the Institute develops and maintains data management systems and(More)
MycoCosm is a fungal genomics portal (http://jgi.doe.gov/fungi), developed by the US Department of Energy Joint Genome Institute to support integration, analysis and dissemination of fungal genome sequences and other 'omics' data by providing interactive web-based tools. MycoCosm also promotes and facilitates user community participation through the(More)
The Genomes OnLine Database (GOLD, http://www.genomesonline.org/) is a comprehensive resource for centralized monitoring of genome and metagenome projects worldwide. Both complete and ongoing projects, along with their associated metadata, can be accessed in GOLD through precomputed tables and a search page. As of September 2011, GOLD, now on version 4.0,(More)
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Joint Genome Institute (JGI), a national user facility, serves the diverse scientific community by providing integrated high-throughput sequencing and computational analysis to enable system-based scientific approaches in support of DOE missions related to clean energy generation and environmental characterization. The(More)
Polyclonal antibodies raised against rat syntaxin-1B and an affinity-purified fraction have been used to study the functional role of this protein in transmitter release from Aplysia neurons. In a ganglionic protein extract, this fraction recognized a 37,000 molecular weight protein which therefore might be the Aplysia homologue of rat brain syntaxin-1B.(More)
Well-trained subjects (n = 6) were studied before and after losing a mean 3.0%-4.3% of body mass to determine whether muscle performance could be maintained or even enhanced by dietary creatine supplementation. During a 5-day period of loss of mass the subjects were randomly assigned to a creatine or placebo supplemented diet. All the subjects were measured(More)
Dynamics of indices characterizing the process of adaptation of operators to complicated conditions of vital activity was studied with psychophysiological monitoring. This technique is based on the complex analysis of subjective and objective estimations of the current psychoemotional state and physiological and biochemical indices. We analyzed the data(More)
The biorhythmological structure of water-electrolyte metabolism was studied in humans during 7-day "dry" immersion. Results were processed with a set of mathematical methods in order to identify a parameter which would allow to obtain scientifically valid, reliable data without violation of any ethic constraints inherent to investigations with healthy(More)
Methodology of estimating the integral health and aging level is based on the system index of biological age (BA). The paper introduces the reader to the BA principles and structure, search for meaningful aging biomarkers, useful tests, and applications in present-day biomedicine. The concept of BA is directly linked with the theory of organism vitality. BA(More)
