Water sorption, glass transition, and microstructures of refractance window- and freeze-dried mango (Philippine “Carabao” var.) powderDownload
Caparino, O. A., Sablani, Shyam S., Tang, Juming, Syamaladevi, Roopesh M., Nindo, C. I.
Water sorption isotherms, glass transition, and microstructures of Refractance Window (RW)– and freeze-dried Philippine “Carabao” mango powders were investigated. Water sorption isotherms were developed by the isopiestic method, while thermal transition of the powders, at various water activities...

Background Despite ongoing reductions in the cost of sequencing technologies, whole genome SNP genotype imputation is often used as an alternative for obtaining abundant SNP genotypes for genome wide association studies. Several existing genotype imputation methods can be efficient for this...

Background One of the goals of livestock genomics research is to identify the genetic differences responsible for variation in phenotypic traits, particularly those of economic importance. Characterizing the genetic variation in livestock species is an important step towards linking genes or...
Whole genome sequence analysis of an alachlor and endosulfan degrading Pseudomonas strain W15Feb9B isolated from Ochlockonee River, FloridaDownload
Ewida, Ayman Y. I., Stothard, Paul, Chauhan, Ashvini, Griffiths, Zabrenna, Pathak, Ashish
We recently isolated a Pseudomonas sp. strain W15Feb9B from Ochlockonee River, Florida and demonstrated potent biodegradative activity against two commonly used pesticides - Alachlor [(2-chloro-2′,6′-diethylphenyl-N (methoxymethyl)acetanilide)] and Endosulfan...
Whole-genome analyses of Korean native and Holstein cattle breeds by massively parallel sequencingDownload
Kim, Tae-Hun, Oh, Jae-Don, Han, Kwang-Jin, Choi, Jung-Woo, Choi, So-Young, Lee, Hak-Kyo, Stothard, Paul, Jeon, Heoyn-Jeong, Lee, Kyung-Tai, Lee, Jeong-Koo, Jeong, Dongkee, Kim, Namshin, Chung, Won-Hyong, Kim, Hyeong-Cheol, Liao, Xiaoping, Yang, Bokyoung, Miller, Stephen P., Lee, Sung-Jin
A main goal of cattle genomics is to identify DNA differences that account for variations in economically important traits. In this study, we performed whole-genome analyses of three important cattle breeds in Korea—Hanwoo, Jeju Heugu, and Korean Holstein—using the Illumina HiSeq 2000 sequencing...
Whole-genome resequencing of Hanwoo (Korean cattle) and insight into regions of homozygosityDownload
Lee, Kyung-Tai, Ahn, Sungmin, Choy, Yun H., Lee, Sang-Heon, Jang, Gul-Won, Liao, Xiaoping, Lee, Seunghwan, Lee, Sung-Yeoun, Chung, Won-Hyong, Stothard, Paul, Choi, Jung-Woo, Kim, Tae-Hun, Kim, Bumsoo, Kim, Jiwoong, Lim, Dajeong, Moore, Stephen S., Kim, Namshin
Background Hanwoo (Korean cattle), which originated from natural crossbreeding between taurine and zebu cattle, migrated to the Korean peninsula through North China. Hanwoo were raised as draft animals until the 1970s without the introduction of foreign germplasm. Since 1979, Hanwoo has been bred...
Xylo-oligosaccharides and virginiamycin differentially modulate gut microbial composition in chickensDownload
Zhao, Xin, Pourabedin, Mohsen, Guan, Leluo
Background The emergence and spread of antibiotic resistance in pathogens have led to a restriction on the use of antibiotic growth promoters (AGPs) in animal feed in some countries. The potential negative after-effects of a ban on AGPs could be mitigated by improving animal intestinal health...
Spaner, Dean, Mather, Diane E., Brathwaite, R. A. I.
Three local varietal types of corn (Zea mays L.)—an improved landrace ICTA Farm Corn' derived from the Tuson population, the open-pollinatedAcross 7728', and the hybrid Pioneer 3098'—were grown at three cash-crop farms in Trinidad, and evaluated as green corn for agronomic, quality, and chemical...
Yield components of day-neutral and short-day strawberry varieties on raised beds in British ColumbiaDownload
Baumann, T. E., Eaton, G. W., Spaner, Dean
Eight day-neutral and seven short-day strawberry (Fragaria ×ananassa, Duch.) varieties were evaluated on raised beds during 1990 and 1991 in the Fraser River valley, B.C. Among day-neutral varieties in 1990, total variation in marketable yield originated in fruit count (26%), total yield (18%),...
n-3 fatty acids inhibit transcription of human IL-13: Implications for development of T helper type 2 immune responsesDownload
Cameron, Lisa, Madsen, Norman, MacLean, Emily, Vliagoftis, Harissios, Field, Catherine J.
Fish oil supplementation during pregnancy has been associated with lower levels of cord blood IL-13, suggesting that the administration of n-3 fatty acids may attenuate the development of allergic disease. The present study aimed to investigate the mechanism by which n-3 fatty acid administration...
