DANPOS: dynamic analysis of nucleosome position and occupancy by sequencing.
A comprehensive bioinformatics pipeline, DANPOS, explicitly designed for dynamic nucleosome analysis at single-nucleotide resolution is reported, demonstrating that bias correction in preliminary data processing and optimal statistical testing significantly enhances the functional interpretation of dynamic nucleOSomes.
The effect of excess Zn on mineral nutrition and antioxidative response in rapeseed seedlings.
It is suggested that excess Zn exerts its toxicity partially through disturbing nutrient balance and inducing oxidative stress in plants through the adaptive mechanism in Zn non-hyperaccumulator plants.
A meta-analysis of experimental warming effects on terrestrial nitrogen pools and dynamics.
It is found that, on average, net N mineralization and net nitrification rate were increased under experimental warming treatment, and soil heating cable and all-day treatment appeared to be the most effective method on N cycling among all treatment methods.
Removal of copper from aqueous solution by electrodeposition in cathode chamber of microbial fuel cell.
Based on energetic analysis, a novel approach for copper electrodeposition via cathodic reduction in microbial fuel cells (MFCs) was proposed for the removal of copper and recovery of copper solids
Ginsenoside metabolites, rather than naturally occurring ginsenosides, lead to inhibition of human cytochrome P450 enzymes.
It is suggested that after oral administration, naturally occurring ginsenosides might influence hepatic P450 activity in vivo via their intestinal metabolites.

Field measured emission factors (EFs) of various air pollutants for solid fuels are close to the reality and urgently needed for better emission estimations, especially true for high molecular weight PAHs.
The Drosophila melanogaster transcriptome by paired-end RNA sequencing.
RNA-seq was used to generate an extensive map of the Drosophila melanogaster transcriptome by broad sampling of 10 developmental stages and a total of 319 novel transcripts were identified, representing a 2% increase over the current annotation.
DNA topoisomerase IIβ and neural development
DNA topoisomerase IIβ is shown to have an unsuspected and critical role in neural development and clusters of acetylcholine receptors were concentrated in the central region of skeletal muscles, thereby revealing patterning mechanisms that are autonomous to skeletal muscle.
Occurrence and exposure to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and their derivatives in a rural Chinese home through biomass fuelled cooking.
The results suggest that the nPAHs were largely from secondary formation in ambient air while oPAhs were either from primary emission of biomass burning or secondary formation from pPAHS in the kitchen.
Contribution of additives Cu to its accumulation in pig feces: study in Beijing and Fuxin of China.
Feed management in grower-finisher pigs on super-intensive and small-scale pig farms is needed to reduce high Cu concentrations in feces and risks to soil contamination while feces are land-applied.
