The first part of this study is a narrative literature review to provide an overview of the methods used to assess dietary diversity. The second part of this study is a case study to explore the factors affecting dietary diversity as well as the perceptions of a kitchen garden intervention in...
Background Insects constitute the vast majority of known species with their importance including biodiversity, agricultural, and human health concerns. It is likely that the successful adaptation of the Insecta clade depends on specific components in its proteome that give rise to specialized...
ReAS: Recovery of Ancestral Sequences for Transposable Elements from the Unassembled Reads of a Whole Genome ShotgunDownload
We describe an algorithm, ReAS, to recover ancestral sequences for transposable elements (TEs) from the unassembled reads of a whole genome shotgun. The main assumptions are that these TEs must exist at high copy numbers across the genome and must not be so old that they are no longer...
The mitochondrial genome of the hexactinellid sponge Aphrocallistes vastus: Evidence for programmed translational frameshiftingDownload
Background: Mitochondrial genomes (mtDNA) of numerous sponges have been sequenced as part of an ongoing effort to resolve the class-level phylogeny of the Porifera, as well as to place the various lower metazoan groups on the animal-kingdom tree. Most recently, the partial mtDNA of two glass...
What can we learn from the discourse around text tools? More than might be expected. The development of text analysis tools has been a feature of computing in the humanities since IBM supported Father Busa's production of the Index Thomisticus (Tasman 1957). Despite the importance of tools in the...
Background. Tools and resources (TRs) can help to prevent obesity in children, particularly in settings that are accessible to families and well-aligned with chronic disease prevention, such as primary care. To date, little is known about the TRs that primary care providers (PCPs) currently use...
