Excellent pork meat quality for improved eating experience is becoming increasingly important to consumers and therefore the hog industry as a whole. One of the most interesting factors associated with eating experience is fat; fat plays a significant role in the acceptance (and rejection) of...
Understanding historical species distributions is vital to the conservation and restoration of native species, yet such information is often qualitative. Here, we show that the paleolimnological history of threatened freshwater fishes can be reconstructed using species diagnostic markers...
Examining Relations Between Parental Behaviour, Children’s Characteristics, and Children's Executive Function in Early and Middle ChildhoodDownload
Parental behaviour is an important predictor of executive function (EF) in early childhood and the transition to middle childhood. Yet, not all children are equally impacted by parental behaviour. This dissertation examined interactions and bidirectional relations between parental behaviours and...
Meat has changed its role from just providing necessary nutrition for the human body to improving the quality of life by giving us eating satisfaction, resulting in the impetus for scientific research on meat quality. Although many strategies have been taken to improve meat quality, unacceptably...
Investigation of the Genetic Etiology of Superior Coloboma and the Formation and Closure of Superior Ocular SulcusDownload
Congenital ocular coloboma is a rare genetic disorder that is typically observed as a cleft in the inferior aspect of the eye due to failed choroid fissure closure during embryogenesis. Together with microphthalmia (small eyes) and anophthalmia (absence of eyes), it represents 3-11% of childhood...
My research entails working with mice, collecting tissue samples, and subsequently isolating their genetic material (DNA, RNA) and protein on a daily basis. As budding researchers, we live in a competitive, fast-paced environment where we are always under pressure to deliver publishable results....
