  • Pregnancy
  • These defects might also be caused by a combination of genes and other factors, such as the things the mother comes in contact with in the environment or what the mother eats or drinks, or certain medicines she uses during pregnancy. (cdc.gov)
  • Marfan
  • Another autosomal dominant condition is Marfan syndrome, which results from a defect in the synthesis, secretion, or utilization of the protein fibrillin, an important component of connective tissue throughout the body. (encyclopedia.com)
  • A number of genetic conditions are associated with heart defects including Down syndrome , Turner syndrome , and Marfan syndrome . (wikipedia.org)
  • metabolic
  • Metabolic defects prevent the body from properly breaking down food to create energy. (kidshealth.org)
  • Examples of metabolic defects include Tay-Sachs disease , a fatal disease that affects the central nervous system, and phenylketonuria (PKU), which affects the way the body processes protein. (kidshealth.org)
  • functional
  • This chapter focuses primarily on neutrophils and monocytes and examines the disorders characterized by their quantitative and functional defects. (springer.com)
  • densities
  • Researchers from the University of Chicago and Argonne use the supercomputing resources at the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility to predict the path molecules must follow to find defect-free states and designed a process that delivers industry-standard nanocircuitry that can be scaled down to smaller densities without defects. (innovations-report.com)
  • What we have done in this work is predict the path these molecules must follow to find defect-free states and designed a process that delivers industry-standard nanocircuitry that can be scaled down to smaller densities without defects. (innovations-report.com)
  • By systematically studying the influence of various types and densities of material defects on the electrode's sensitivity, we created a physics-based microscopic model that replaces superstition with scientific insight. (nyu.edu)
  • Researchers
  • Researchers at the University of Chicago and the U.S. Department of Energy's Argonne National Laboratory, led by Juan de Pablo and Paul Nealey, may have found a way for the semiconductor industry to hit miniaturization targets on time and without defects. (innovations-report.com)
  • However, a firm understanding of the relationship between various structural defects and the sensitivity has long eluded researchers. (nyu.edu)
  • In a surprise finding, the researchers discovered that only one group of defects in graphene's structure - point defects - significantly impacts electrode sensitivity, which increases linearly with the average density of these defects, within a certain range. (nyu.edu)
  • genes
  • These defects, which include conditions like hemophilia and color blindness, are called X-linked because the genes are carried on the X chromosome. (kidshealth.org)
  • Single-gene mutations are defects or changes in genes that may be passed on from generation to generation. (encyclopedia.com)
  • Common
  • George Brolly and Steve Scott, committee members of the National Federation of Roofing Contractors, describe what the most common defects are, how to spot them and how they can be remedied. (rics.org)
  • Less common defects in the association are truncus arteriosus and transposition of the great arteries. (wikipedia.org)
  • include
  • But meeting target dates can be challenging because the final integrated devices, which include billions of transistors, must be flawless - less than one defect per 100 square centimeters. (innovations-report.com)
  • type
  • A Schottky defect is a type of point defect in a crystal lattice named after Walter H. Schottky. (wikipedia.org)
  • This type of defect is typically observed in highly ionic compounds, highly coordinated compounds, and where there is only a small difference in sizes of cations and anions of which the compound lattice is composed. (wikipedia.org)
  • The model takes in data about the type of product (number and scale of components, experience of the developers etc), and other data relevant for each phase of the life-cycle and is able to deliver an estimate of the number defects at any point in the process. (theregister.co.uk)
