Below is a Python script that might help you to get started (apologies if it fails the Pythonic test - it works!). It uses the Entrez part of the Biopython library. The script sets up a query, in this case yeast AND Saccharomyces against the pmc database. Also note that this script uses the 2 step process that NCBI likes you to use - the first part of the ...


I don't know anything about this topic, but I did find this recent paper: Kamaljit Singh,Hardeep Kaur, Kelly Chibale, Jan Balzarini, Susan Little, Prasad V. Bharatam (2012) 2-Aminopyrimidine based 4-aminoquinoline anti-plasmodial agents. Synthesis, biological activity, structure–activity relationship and mode of action studies. European Journal of ...


This may be the paper you are looking for: Ongaroraa DSB, Gutb J, Rosenthalb PJ, Masimirembwac CM, Chibale K. 2012. Benzoheterocyclic amodiaquine analogues with potent antiplasmodial activity: Synthesis and pharmacological evaluation. Bioorganic & Medicinal Chemistry Letters, 22(15): 5046–5050, doi:10.1016/j.bmcl.2012.06.010.


I would recommend The selfish gene by Richard Dawkins. It is targeted at a scientifically interested audience, but well written and recognized by the scientific community. http://amzn.com/0199291152


I have never worked much with yeast, but I can still give some answers: Salmon sperm is used as a the so called "carrier DNA". It is thought to bind to the yeast cell wall and thus prevents that the DNA which shall be transformed does so. This raises the transformation efficiency. See here for more details: "Transformation of yeast by lithium ...


I think it's possible with Entrez Direct You'd start with something like: esearch -db pubmed -query "atp6" And then pipe that to maybe efetch -format ?? and then continue with gnu coreutils. It might be that only abstracts are available as text, in this case, you'd have to extract e.g. pubmed ids and then come up with a way to batch fetch those somehow.. ...


This is too long for a comment, so I post it here. And these are my personal views, someone else might handle this different. I would submit the paper to BMC Genomics for some reasons: The editor offered to transfer the paper, so you get past the editorial review. This is not guaranteed for Nature Scientific Report (NSR). You still have to get through the ...


I think this book (The Story of Life, Southwood) would be just what you are looking for - it was one of my modules during my undergrad in Evolution and I think it touches on the basic geology too. It is quite an easy ready but covers the material pretty well, it also has good reviews on Amazon etc.


The sequences you have posted seem to be (protein) amino acid sequences. The stop codon are present in DNA sequences and in mRNA sequences. In DNA, the bases are A, G, C and T; stop codons are TAG, TGA and TAA. In RNA, the bases are A, G, C and U; stop codons are UAG, UGA and UAA. In DNA and RNA, other letters are used to specify degeneracy. What you have ...


I checked this site and its journals in Scopus.com based on its "ISSN 2046-1690" but nothing was there. they are fast in submitting and publishing but it is not some thing great by it self. I think maybe its better to find some where better to publish your article(s).


1) Pareas iwasakii has asymmetric mandibles. A few more examples of asymmetric snakes (reference) Pareas iwasakii skull 2) Camels have an asymmetric penis (reference) 3) You could find quite a few in this article titled Animal asymmetry Hope that helps. I am sure there are more but these are some I could find.


Well I sometimes use PDB files from proteins whose structure has been identified and study them. I use swiss PDB viewer software to do this and its pretty neat! I haven't looked at the biophysical data associated with a PDB file but I'm pretty sure they are there since you wouldn't be able to make the calculations and resolve the protein structure and ...
