Application of genomics-based tools leading to the identification of markers on bovine chromosome 14 influencing milk production and carcass quality traitsDownload
Genetic improvements in beef and dairy cattle can bring significant advances in satisfying the global food demand, which is expected to double by 2050. Several DNA markers have been identified on bovine chromosome 14 (BTA14), but low mapping resolution prevents their refinement for identification...
Characteristics of Patients Reviewed by a Nurse Practitioner within an Outpatient Palliative Radiation Oncology ClinicDownload
Cancer is a highly prevalent illness in Canada, with half of Canadians developing cancer and one quarter dying of the disease. In spite of significant advancements in cancer diagnosis and treatments, many cancers still have a poor prognosis. Palliative radiotherapy (PRT) is a common and effective...
Gliomas are the most common primary malignant brain tumour in adults, with glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), the most common and most deadly form of glioma, making up over half of all diagnosed cancers in the brain/central nervous system. The standard of care for gliomas has remained unchanged for...
To understand the water cycle on Mars, details of mass and energy transfer between the surface and the atmosphere are of importance. A complete model, involving transient variations of the water in gaseous and solid phases in the atmosphere and the regolith, is developed and solved numerically...
Ataxia telangiectasia–mutated (ATM) and ataxia telangiectasia–related (ATR) kinases are conserved regulators of cellular responses to double strand breaks (DSBs). During meiosis, however, the functions of these kinases in DSB repair and the deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) damage checkpoint are...
Estimation of the Evaporation Rate of an Isolated Water Microdroplet Subjected to Infrared Radiative HeatingDownload
A combined numerical-experimental investigation was performed to study the influence of infrared radiation on the evaporation of a single-component droplet in the range between 10 and 50 micrometers, under different environmental conditions of relative humidity and temperature of air. A numerical...
Inverse resonance absorption in an inhomogeneous magnetized plasma
The linear mode conversion of a plasma wave to a light wave in a magnetized plasma has been examined theoretically and by computer simulation. This conversion is the inverse of resonance absorption exhibiting an identical dependence on magnetic field and density scale length with an optimum...
Kinetic theory of stimulated Raman sidescattering from magnetized plasmas
A theory of stimulated Raman sidescattering in magnetized plasmas is presented based on a solution of the Vlasov–Maxwell equations. The incident laser light, in the form of extraordinary mode radiation, decays into light waves which propagate along the uniform magnetic field as right or left...
One of the methods of study of black holes in astrophysics is based on broaden- ing of the spectrum of radiation of ionized iron atoms. The line Kα associated with iron emission at 6.4 keV is very narrow. If such an ion is revolving around a black hole, this line is effectively broadened as a...
The effects of a magnetic field on the Raman and two‐plasmon decay instabilities are studied in the region of the quarter‐critical density of laser produced plasmas where both are coincident. Two‐plasmon decay of the incident extraordinary wave into two upper‐hybrid waves may now occur in the...
