- 1Finite strain consolidation
Although esophageal cancer makes up only 1% of all the cancers in western countries, it is a common death cancer in other areas, especially China. Esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) is the most common type of esophageal cancer in Chaoshan, an area with high incidence rate of this disease...
Recombinant expression of plant diacylglycerol acyltransferases from tissues that accumulate saturated fatty acidsDownload
Vegetable oils enriched in saturated fatty acids (SFAs) could provide solid-fat functionality and decrease our reliance on hydrogenated oils. This thesis focuses on the characterization of enzymes that can preferentially incorporate SFAs into triacylglycerol (TAG). Acyl-CoA:diacylglycerol...
Tailing ponds in Northern Alberta has covered an area of 170 km2. Directive 074 issued in 2009 set stringent criteria for tailings reclamation. Freeze-thaw dewatering is one of the most promising approaches for dewatering MFT as one cycle of freeze-thaw can release up to 50% pore water. In this...
