At 17+4 week, non-invasive prenatal testing (NIPT) results of a 24-years-old mother showed high risk of monosomy X (45, X). Abnormally shaped head and cardiac defects were observed in prenatal ultrasound scan at 19+3 week. Amniocentesis conducted at 19+3 week identified karyotype 47, XX, +18, which suggested that the NIPT failed to detect trisomy 18 (T18)(More)
Plant biodiversity is often correlated with ecosystem functioning in terrestrial ecosystems. However, we know little about the relative and combined effects of above- and belowground biodiversity on multiple ecosystem functions (for example, ecosystem multifunctionality, EMF) or how climate might mediate those relationships. Here we tease apart the effects(More)
—The absolute radiometric calibration of remote sensing sensors is crucial to the accurate retrieval of biogeophysical parameters through remote sensing. The radiometric calibration uncertainty is the index that describes the reliability of a calibration result and is usually empirically determined by assuming that all of the factors involved are(More)
The effect of the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonists dextromethorphan (DEX), ketamine (KET), and MK-801 on morphine (MOR)-induced antinociception has been investigated in male and female rats. DEX (7.5, 15, and 30 mg/kg), KET (0.75, 1.5, and 3 mg/kg), and MK-801 (0.075, 0.15, and 0.3 mg/kg) dose-dependently enhanced MOR-induced (3 mg/kg)(More)
This study assessed the effect of the central benzodiazepine receptor antagonist, 8-fluoro-5,6-dihydro-5-methyl-6-oxo-4H-imidazo[1,5-a][1,4]benzodiazepine-3-carboxylic acid ethyl ester (flumazenil), on morphine-induced analgesia, locomotor effects, and development of tolerance in rats. The thermally evoked pain (tail flick) response was determined after(More)
The wide-view multispectral imager (WVMI) is the main instrument carried on an unmanned vehicle in the Unmanned Vehicle Payloads Comprehensive Calibration Campaign, which focuses on the calibration and validation of various remote-sensing sensors, including multispectral and hyperspectral sensors. In order to calibrate the WVMI, we designed and deployed a(More)
Soil microbial communities are influenced by climate change drivers such as warming and altered precipitation. These changes create abiotic stresses, including desiccation and nutrient limitation, which act on microbes. However, our understanding of the responses of microbial communities to co-occurring climate change drivers is limited. We surveyed soil(More)
Complex chromosome rearrangements (CCRs), which are rather rare in the whole population, may be associated with aberrant phenotypes. Next-generation sequencing (NGS) and conventional techniques, could be used to reveal specific CCRs for better genetic counseling. We report the CCRs of a girl and her mother, which were identified using a combination of NGS(More)

As CO2 concentrations continue to rise and drive global climate change, much effort has been put into estimating soil carbon (C) stocks and dynamics over time. However, the inconsistent methods employed by researchers hamper the comparability of such works, creating a pressing need to standardize the methods for soil organic C (SOC) quantification by the(More)
