Papers 1 - 20 of 30 in Miscellaneous, U
  1. We review the application of fluorescence spectroscopy and elastic-scattering spectroscopy, over the ultraviolet-to-visible wavelength range, to minimally invasive medical diagnostics. The promises and hopes, as well as the difficulties, of these…
  2. While the Geneva Conventions contain gender-specific provisions, the reality of women's and men's experiences of armed conflict have highlighted gender limitations and conceptual constraints within international humanitarian law. Judgements at the…
  3. This book provides you with the perfect introduction to your studies in peace and conflict resolution and equips you with the tools you need to analyse real-world cases. Drawing on recent research and examples from around the world, the new edition:…
  4. In a period of ongoing public sector reform in the United States (US), federal government agencies have been pushed to find new ways of performing their public functions more effectively and efficiently. Frontline public sector employees are a…
  5. Replicated ecological gradients are prime systems to study processes of molecular evolution underlying ecological divergence. Here we investigated the repeated adaptation of the Neotropical fish Poecilia mexicana to habitats containing toxic…
  6. CONTEXT: Individuals with exceptional longevity have a lower incidence and/or significant delay in the onset of age-related disease, and their family members may inherit biological factors that modulate aging processes and disease susceptibility.…
  7. Unlocked nucleic acids (UNAs) have been introduced at specific positions in short model DNA hairpins and RNA/DNA triplexes for the first time. UNA residues destabilize the hairpins and decrease triplex thermodynamic stability or suppress triplex…
  8. This study contributes to global debates on biofuels and rural\ndevelopment, providing insights into the role of Jatropha curcas L.\n(Jatropha) in addressing global poverty and promoting sustainable\nenergy. Jatropha energy crop investments have…
  9. Salinity is a major environmental constraint limiting the yield of crop plants in many semi-arid and arid regions. A recently developed biophysical model for plant growth in saline environments confirms a critical role for root morphology and…
  10. Identification of post-translational modifications (PTMs) is important to understanding the biological functions of proteins. MS/MS is a useful tool to identify PTMs. Most existing search tools are restricted to take only a few types of PTMs as…
  11. This paper presents the overal structure, the design criteria, and the main features of the tool box Uppaal. It gives a detailed user guide which describes how to use the various tools of Uppaal version 2.02 to construct abstract models of a…
  12. The need for standardized operational definitions, as well as a more sensitive, easily applied, and reproducible upper extremity functional assessment for following patients in multiple sclerosis clinical trials is evident. Experience with the use…
