Investigating the Spatial Dimension of Food Access
The purpose of this article is to investigate the sensitivity of food access models to a dataset’s spatial distribution and the empirical definition of food access, which contributes to understanding the mixed findings of ...
Evaluation of the National Research Council (2001) dairy model and derivation of new prediction equations. 2. Rumen degradable and undegradable protein
This work evaluated the National Research Council (NRC) dairy model (2001) predictions of rumen undegradable (RUP) and degradable (RDP) protein compared with measured postruminal non-ammonia, nonmicrobial (NANMN) and ...
Integrating transcriptomic and proteomic data for accurate assembly and annotation of genomes
Complementing genome sequence with deep transcriptome and proteome data could enable more accurate assembly and annotation of newly sequenced genomes. Here, we provide a proof-of-concept of an integrated approach for ...
Diversity and Functional Analysis of the FeMo-Cofactor Maturase NifB
One of the main hurdles to engineer nitrogenase in a non-diazotrophic host is achieving NifB activity. NifB is an extremely unstable and oxygen sensitive protein that catalyzes a low-potential SAM-radical dependent reaction. ...
Mini-review: In vitro Metabolic Engineering for Biomanufacturing of High-value Products
With the breakthroughs in biomolecular engineering and synthetic biology, many valuable biologically active compound and commodity chemicals have been successfully manufactured using cell-based approaches in the past decade. ...
The Effects of Shade, Fertilizer, and Pruning on Eastern Hemlock Trees and Hemlock Woolly Adelgid
Hemlock woolly adelgid (HWA), <i>Adelges tsugae</i> Annand, an invasive insect native to the Pacific Northwest and Asia, is responsible for widespread health decline and mortality of native hemlocks (<i>Tsuga</i> spp.) in ...

Mortality and Recovery of Hemlock Woolly Adelgid (Adelges tsugae) in Response to Winter Temperatures and Predictions for the Future
Eastern (<i>Tsuga canadensis</i>) and Carolina hemlocks (<i>T. caroliniana</i>) of eastern North America have been attacked by the non-native hemlock woolly adelgid (<i>Adelges tsugae</i> Annand) (HWA) since the first half ...
Processes to Preserve Spice and Herb Quality and Sensory Integrity During Pathogen Inactivation
Selected processing methods, demonstrated to be effective at reducing Salmonella, were assessed to determine if spice and herb quality was affected. Black peppercorn, cumin seed, oregano, and onion powder were irradiated ...
