Written by a professional biologist who is also an experienced writing teacher, this comprehensive guide for students writing in biology, zoology, and botany provides detailed instruction on researching, drafting, revising, and documenting papers, reviews, poster presentations, and other forms of science writing. The sixth edition features an expanded and revised chapter 1 on research strategies and sources, a greater diversity of examples from different subdisciplines (molecular biology, animal ecology, and genetics), and new technology tips throughout for searching databases and using software designed for charts, graphs, note-taking, and documentation.

Genomics of Pandanus: A useful plant resource of coastal Odisha, India

Genomics of Pandanus: A useful plant resource of coastal Odisha, India

Автор:

The aromatic plant Pandanus tectorius Parkinson (=Pandanus fascicularis Lam.) popularly known as ‘kia’ or ‘kewda’ is an important coastal bio-resource that supports the socio-economy as well as ecology of Ganjam coast in Odisha. According to the World Check List of Selected Plant Families (www.theplantlist.org), the accepted name of this plant species is Pandanus odorifer (Forssk.) Kuntze under the genus Pandanus (family: Pandanaceae) having 65 synonyms that included P. fascicularis and P. tectorius. The genome of P. tectorius was analysed on bases of somatic chromosome complement, nuclear 4C DNA content and randomly amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) in relation to morphological variation, dioecism, and geographical distribution along the coastline of Odisha stretching a distance of 600 km. RAPD analysis could segregate plants from different populations on the basis of morphology, sex or locations. A few male-specific RAPD markers in plants specific to Gajam coast were identified. The findings pointed to the possible role of eco-geography augmenting micro-evolution of male plant genotypes of P. tectorius at Ganjam coast, Odisha that are known for high perfume quality and yield.

Wearable Ankle Rehabilitation Robot

Wearable Ankle Rehabilitation Robot

Автор:

The ankle joint is a complex structure in the human musculoskeletal system and due to its location; the ankle joint is also the most common site of sprain injuries. Rehabilitation treatment reinstates ankle motions but the conventional approach is slow and tedious. Robot assisted treatment on the other hand has shown encouraging outcomes. Nevertheless, existing ankle robots suffer from inadequate design besides actuation and control related problems. This book presents the development of a wearable ankle robot which has bio inspired design, actuation and control. The parallel mechanism based design emulates the human musculoskeletal arrangement of actuators and provides natural ankle motions. Pneumatic muscle actuators, used in the robot, also display human muscle like characteristics. The adaptive control of the robot effectively scaffolds subjects in achieving rehabilitation goals. In the process, a new approach for multi-objective optimization has also been proposed. The issues discussed and analysed in the text will help shed some light on the prevailing issues of wearable robots in order to facilitate further research.

Pattern Discovery in the Social Web with Artificial Intelligence

Pattern Discovery   in the Social Web with   Artificial Intelligence

Автор:

A vast amount of textual web streams is influenced by events or phenomena emerging in the real world. The Social Web forms an excellent modern paradigm, where unstructured user generated content is published on a regular basis and in most occasions is freely distributed. The present book deals with the problem of inferring information — or patterns in general — about events emerging in real life based on the contents of this textual stream. We show that it is possible to extract valuable information about social phenomena, such as an epidemic or even rainfall rates, by automatic analysis of the content published in Social Media, and in particular Twitter, using Statistical Machine Learning methods. By examining further this rich data set, we also propose methods for extracting various types of mood signals revealing how affective norms evolve during the day and how significant events emerging in the real world are influencing them. Lastly, we present some preliminary findings showing several spatiotemporal characteristics of this textual information as well as the potential of using it to tackle tasks such as the prediction of voting intentions.
