Effects of electron acceptors on removal of antibiotic resistant Escherichia coli, resistance genes and class 1 integrons under anaerobic conditions
(Elsevier Science Bv, 2016-11-01)
Anaerobic biotechnologies can effectively remove antibiotic resistant bacteria (ARB) and antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs), but there is a need to better understand the mechanisms. Here we employ bioelectrochemical systems ...
Bare-hand volume cracker for raw volume data analysis
Analysis of raw volume data generated from different scanning technologies faces a variety of challenges, related to search, pattern recognition, spatial understanding, quantitative estimation, and shape description. In a ...
Heart Rate and Extracellular Sodium and Potassium Modulation of Gap Junction Mediated Conduction in Guinea Pigs
Background: Recent studies suggested that cardiac conduction in murine hearts with narrow perinexi and 50% reduced connexin43 (Cx43) expression is more sensitive to relatively physiological changes of extracellular potassium ...
SacB-SacR Gene Cassette As the Negative Selection Marker to Suppress Agrobacterium Overgrowth in Agrobacterium-Mediated Plant Transformation
Agrobacterium overgrowth is a common problem in Agrobacterium-mediated plant transformation. To suppress the Agrobacterium overgrowth, various antibiotics have been used during plant tissue culture steps. The antibiotics ...
Constitutive Relation for Large Deformations of Fiber-Reinforced Rubberlike Materials with Different Response in Tension and Compression
Fiber-reinforced rubberlike materials commonly used in tires undergo large deformations and exhibit different responses in tension and compression along the fiber direction. Assuming that the response of a fiber-reinforced ...
Spontaneous incorporation of gold in palladium-based ternary nanoparticles makes durable electrocatalysts for oxygen reduction reaction
(Nature Publishing Group, 2016-06-01)
Replacing platinum by a less precious metal such as palladium, is highly desirable for lowering the cost of fuel-cell electrocatalysts. However, the instability of palladium in the harsh environment of fuel-cell cathodes ...
Enhancing Teacher Performance: A Toolbox of Strategies to Facilitate Moving Behavior from Problematic to Good and from Good to Great
(Rowman & Littlefield, 2016-04-08)
Exemplary schools have at their core outstanding principals and teachers. This book enables school leaders to enhance teacher performance to move from problematic to good or better yet, from good to great.
Streamflow response to increasing precipitation extremes altered by forest management
(Amer Geophysical Union, 2016-04-28)
Increases in extreme precipitation events of floods and droughts are expected to occur worldwide. The increase in extreme events will result in changes in streamflow that are expected to affect water availability for human ...
Developing a Survey to Determine Student Perceptions of Readiness at the Beginning of an Educational Leadership Program
In this study, a survey was developed to determine student perceptions of readiness prior to entering an educational leadership program. The survey was disseminated to all students entering the program, and the results ...
Banishment in Public Housing: Testing an Evolution of Broken Windows
Banishment policies grant police the authority to formally ban individuals from entering public housing and arrest them for trespassing if they violate the ban. Despite its widespread use and the social consequences resulting ...
