The oyster genome reveals stress adaptation and complexity of shell formation
The Pacific oyster Crassostrea gigas belongs to one of the most species-rich but genomically poorly explored phyla, the Mollusca. Here we report the sequencing and assembly of the oyster genome using… Expand
Subsampled open-reference clustering creates consistent, comprehensive OTU definitions and scales to billions of sequences
We present a performance-optimized algorithm, subsampled open-reference OTU picking, for assigning marker gene (e.g., 16S rRNA) sequences generated on next-generation sequencing platforms to operational taxonomic units (OTUs) for microbial community analysis. Expand
Occurrence of antibiotics and antibiotic resistance genes in a sewage treatment plant and its effluent-receiving river.
The extensive use of antibiotics has caused the contamination of both antibiotics and antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs) in the environment. In this study, the abundance and distribution of… Expand

Background Gut microbiota has been suggested to play a role in almost all major diseases including cardio‐ and cerebrovascular diseases. A possible mechanism is the transformation of dietary choline… Expand
An overview on limitations of TiO2-based particles for photocatalytic degradation of organic pollutants and the corresponding countermeasures.
The pollutants classified as "persistent organic pollutants (POPs)", are being subject to high concern among the scientific community due to their persistence in the environment. TiO2-based… Expand
Amorphous Solid Dispersions: Utilization and Challenges in Drug Discovery and Development.
Amorphous solid dispersion (ASD) can accelerate a project by improving dissolution rate and solubility, offering dose escalation flexibility and excipient acceptance for toxicology studies, as well… Expand

The occurrence and distribution characteristics of tetrabromobisphenol A (TBBPA) and hexabromocyclododecane (HBCD) in water and sediments from Taihu Lake, China, were investigated. The analytes were… Expand
Fructooligosaccharide (FOS) and Galactooligosaccharide (GOS) Increase Bifidobacterium but Reduce Butyrate Producing Bacteria with Adverse Glycemic Metabolism in healthy young population
The gut microbiota has been implicated in glucose intolerance and its progression towards type-2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Relevant randomized clinical trial with prebiotic intervention was… Expand
Efficiency of biochar and compost (or composting) combined amendments for reducing Cd, Cu, Zn and Pb bioavailability, mobility and ecological risk in wetland soil
Biochar and compost are two inexpensive and effective in situ remediation materials for heavy metal contaminated soils. The interaction between biochar and compost (or composting material) calls for… Expand
