Comparison of Two Alternative Methods for Developing TMDLs to Address Sediment Impairments
While excessive sediment is a leading cause of aquatic life use impairments in free-flowing rivers in Virginia, there is no numeric sediment-water quality criterion. As a result, total maximum daily load (TMDL) sediment ...
Effect of Dietary Fish Oil on Mammary Gland Development and Milk Production of Holstein Cow
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of feeding oil supplement on mammary gland development and milk production responses in Holstein cows. Ten multi pa rolls Holstein cows (42.2 +/- 9.2 d before calving, 3.25 ...

Use of gene-editing technology to introduce targeted modifications in pigs
Abstract Pigs are an important resource in agriculture and serve as a model for human diseases. Due to their physiological and anatomical similarities with humans, pigs can recapitulate symptoms of human ...
Drosophila suzukii (Diptera: Drosophilidae) oviposition and adult emergence in six wine grape varieties grown in Virginia
Drosophila suzukii (Matsumura) is a pest of small fruits and grapes in the United States and in its home range of Japan. Physiological and morphological laboratory testing was performed on six commonly grown wine grape ...
Including Phenotypic Causal Networks in Genome-Wide Association Studies Using Mixed Effects Structural Equation Models
Network based statistical models accounting for putative causal relationships among multiple phenotypes can be used to infer single-nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) effect which transmitting through a given causal path in ...
Characterization of the adult Aedes aegypti early midgut peritrophic matrix proteome using LC-MS
The Aedes aegypti mosquito is the principal vector of arboviruses such as dengue, chikungunya, yellow fever, and Zika virus. These arboviruses are transmitted during adult female mosquito bloodfeeding. While these viruses ...
