The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of different growth temperatures on the fatty acid compositions of the photosynthetically important galactolipids, mono- and digalactosyldiacylglycerol (MGDG and DGDG, respectively), of the “blue” pennate diatom, Haslea ostrearia, and the model pennate diatom, Phaeodactylum tricornutum, with the hypothesis(More)
Current biofuel prospects face many hurdles to becoming mass produced, such as ethanol which is lower in energy content and incompatible with the petroleum-based fuel infrastructure we live in. Consequently, the search is on for an organism that either produces naturally or can be engineered to produce a fuel source that is both comparable in energy content(More)
Treatment of complex aneurysms using microsurgical and other conventional neuroendovascular techniques remains challenging. As a result, stent- and balloon-assisted coiling are instead performed to treat morphologically complex aneurysms, which include giant, wide-necked, and fusiform aneurysms. While these techniques have had success in treating these(More)
The idea of using farm animals to serve mankind far exceeds their use as a source of meat. Farm animals make excellent models for investigating tissue growth, producing biological materials for human use, and developing surgical protocols, artificial organ-replacement devices and medication doses. Domesticated sheep have recently been identified that(More)
