The twenty-year period from 1990 to 2010 exhibited significant and consequential international economic phenomena. Global imbalances, primarily the U.S. current account deficit, were very prominent, along with the development and bursting of a real estate bubble, low interest rates and saving...
Relay network designs have been widely studied in recent years. It is known that cooperative relay network can achieve cooperative diversity with the help of relays and improve the data rate and/or the reliability of the network. On the other hand, green communication design has also attracted...
With the advent of Rich Internet Application (RIA) technologies which are crucial to Web 2.0 sites, Internet user experience has moved from the click-and-wait mode to a richer, faster and more interactive mode. Instead of refreshing the entire web page every time when a user requests a change,...
Systematic microRNAome profiling reveals the roles of microRNAs in milk protein metabolism and quality: Insights on low-quality forage utilizationDownload
In this study, we investigated the molecular regulatory mechanisms of milk protein production in dairy cows by studying the miRNAomes of five key metabolic tissues involved in protein synthesis and metabolism from dairy cows fed high- and low-quality diets. In total, 340, 338, 337, 330, and 328...
Biosynthesis of milk conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), a component of milk fat with demonstrated health benefits, requires a dietary source of PUFA. Even with PUFA supplementation, milk CLA is highly variable. Therefore, this study was aimed at identifying factors responsible for the variations in...
This project addresses several issues related to efficiency, productivity, and competitiveness in Alberta's agriculture and food sector, in both its primary agricultural sector and its secondary processing industry related to food and beverages. A major underlying theme of this work is that the...
Impacts of Environmental Temperature and Dietary Energy on Core Body Temperature and Efficiency in Broiler Breeder FemalesDownload
The effects of environmental temperature, dietary energy, housing system, time of feeding and day length on core body temperature (CBT) dynamics in broiler breeder females was studied in a series of experiments. Environmental temperatures within the range of 15 to 27˚C resulted in a CBT of 39.8...
This thesis research was aimed to develop a residual feed intake (RFI) prediction equation in dairy cattle while accounting for the animals’ multifunctional lactation non-linear energy requirements profiles. The possibility of shortening RFI test period and finding indicator traits for RFI...
Broiler breeders are feed restricted to control growth and increase the production of settable eggs. However, the consecutive need for the deposition and mobilization of nutrients, due the feeding and fasting cycles those birds are submitted to, is not a efficient process. Additionally, the less...
