In silico analysis can be useful to infer about the
horizontal gene transfer (HGT) as well as to deduce about the evolutionary
relations of catabolic genes. In this study, we performed the analysis of two
housekeeping genes (fabD and rpoD) and two catabolic gene

The imbalance between oxidant molecules and
antioxidant agents is characterized as oxidative stress (OS) and may lead to
severe damage to the organism. In contrast, the physical training of aerobic
and resistive character promotes increases of the antioxidant response,
resulting in a balance and/or minimizing damage. Therefore, the objective of
the study is to verify the effect of aerobic training, resistive training and

Genetic epidemiological studies have suggested that several genetic
variants increase the risk for hypertension.
It is likely that a number of genes rather than a single gene account for
the heritability of this complex disorder. However, the genetic analysis of
hypertension produced complex, inconsistent
and nonreproducible results, which makes it difficult to draw conclusions
about the association between specific genes

Motif discovery is one of the fundamental problems that have important applications
in identifying drug targets and regulatory sites. Regulatory sites on DNA
sequence normally correspond to shared conservative sequence patterns among the
regulatory regions of correlated genes. These conserved sequence patterns are
called motifs. Identifying motifs and corresponding instances is very
important, so biologists can investigate the interactions between DNA and
proteins, gene regulation, cell developm...

The Wisconsin Breast Cancer Dataset has been heavily cited as a benchmark dataset for classification. Neural Network techniques such as Neural Networks, Probabilistic Neural Networks, and Regression Neural Networks have been shown to perform very well on this dataset. However, despite its obvious practical importance and implications for cancer research, a thorough investigation of all modern classification techniques on this dataset remains to be done. In this paper we examine the efficacy of c...

In this study, the chromosome karyotype of Plumbago auriculata was analyzed by using a chro-mosome mounting technique with the primary root tip of seed germination. The aim was to find out the most suitable method for Plumbago auriculata by comparing the effect of different pretreatment and dissociation time on chromosome. The results showed that the best pretreatment was 0.05% colchicine solution under 0℃ - 4℃ or 2 h and then 1 mol/L HCL under 60℃ water for 6 min. Karyotype analysis of Plumbago...
