Systematic functional analysis of the Caenorhabditis elegans genome using RNAi
It is found that genes of similar functions are clustered in distinct, multi-megabase regions of individual chromosomes; genes in these regions tend to share transcriptional profiles.
Clinical review: Efficacy of antimicrobial-impregnated catheters in external ventricular drainage - a systematic review and meta-analysis
In conclusion, the use of antimicrobial-impregnated EVD catheters could be beneficial for the prevention of CFI and catheter bacterial colonization and no sufficient evidence supports the efficacy of silver- Impregnated catheter.
Chromatin accessibility dynamics across C. elegans development and ageing
The first map of transcriptional regulatory elements and their activity across the development and ageing of an animal is presented, identifying 42,245 accessible elements in at least one C. elegans stage.

Evidence that Hsps protect photosynthesis from heavy metals is found and these results are among the first to demonstrate specific functions protected by HsPS during metal stress.
Hyphae-Specific Genes HGC1, ALS3, HWP1, and ECE1 and Relevant Signaling Pathways in Candida albicans
Some of the main hyphae-specific genes, namely HGC1, UME6, ALS3, HWP1, and ECE1, are illustrated and their relevant and reversed signal transduction pathways in reactions stimulated by environmental factors, including pH, CO2, and serum are illustrated.
Analysis of the Drought Stress-Responsive Transcriptome of Black Cottonwood (Populus trichocarpa) Using Deep RNA Sequencing
In insight into the transcriptional responses of P. trichocarpa to drought stress, a number of novel transcripts and upstream open reading frames are identified, which may be informative for understanding drought adaption of woody plants.
A huge occipital osteoblastoma accompanied with aneurysmal bone cyst in the posterior cranial fossa
This case confirms the findings of previous investigators that if osteoblastoma is removed completely, no recurrence is expected even without adjuvant irradiation and chemotherapy and preoperative embolization may reduce the risk.

The development of an in-house real-time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT PCR) assay is described to quantify HDV RNA in serum or plasma and its efficiency was validated by testing 99 samples from patients with known chronic HDV infection, along with samples from individuals without HDV.
Development and validation of a Spanish translation of the Yale activity questionnaire
A new Spanish translation of the Yale Physical Activity Survey is developed and evidence of convergent validity in a sample of Dominican patients prior to or one to four years following total joint replacement is provided.
A novel bHLH transcription factor PebHLH35 from Populus euphratica confers drought tolerance through regulating stomatal development, photosynthesis and growth in Arabidopsis.
