  • organic
  • However, the link between the chemical analyses and the biological tests could be improved as as an organic solvent that solubilised virtually all of the contaminants was used during the chemical analysis while the biological tests were performed in an aqueous solution with limited solubility for a number of compounds. (eugris.info)
  • The first step in the biological pump is the synthesis of both organic and inorganic carbon compounds by phytoplankton in the uppermost, sunlit layers of the ocean. (wikipedia.org)
  • The vast majority of carbon incorporated in organic and inorganic biological matter is formed at the sea surface and then must sink to the ocean floor. (wikipedia.org)
  • organisms
  • Once this carbon is fixed into soft or hard tissue, the organisms either stay in the euphotic zone to be recycled as part of the regenerative nutrient cycle or once they die, continue to the second phase of the biological pump and begin to sink to the ocean floor. (wikipedia.org)
  • The recognition component, often called a bioreceptor, uses biomolecules from organisms or receptors modeled after biological systems to interact with the analyte of interest. (wikipedia.org)
  • soil
  • The risks associated with a soil contaminated by polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are generally assessed by measuring individual PAHs in the soil and correlating the obtained amounts to known adverse biological effects of the PAHs. (eugris.info)
  • It can be concluded from the results presented in the included papers that the PAHs in the studied soils from industrial sites were not generally physically trapped in soil material, indicating that the availability of the PAHs was not restricted in this sense. (eugris.info)
  • The availability and bioavailability of contaminants in soil also has to be studied further, and such future studies should focus on the molecular interactions between the contaminants and different compartments of the soil. (eugris.info)
  • Research has shown that ecosystems with a healthy biological soil crust and native plant community will be resistant to B. tectorum invasion. (wikipedia.org)
  • effects
  • In the work underlying this thesis the availability, chemical composition and biological effects of PAHs in samples of soils from PAH-contaminated environments were examined. (eugris.info)
  • Finally, single compounds from this large set of compounds, which correlated with different biological effects, could be identified using the multivariate technique partial least squares projections to latent structures (PLS). (eugris.info)
  • Research
  • ISBER Best Practices For Repositories: Collection, Storage, Retrieval and Distribution of Biological Materials for Research provides repository professionals with standardized guidelines for the management of biobank specimen collections and repositories. (wikipedia.org)
  • interest
  • The nitrogen cycle is of particular interest to ecologists because nitrogen availability can affect the rate of key ecosystem processes, including primary production and decomposition. (wikipedia.org)
  • environmental
  • ISBER is a global organization which creates opportunities for sharing ideas and innovations in biobanking and harmonizes approaches to evolving challenges for biological and environmental repositories. (wikipedia.org)
  • Sharing successful strategies for accomplishing this goal is one of the driving forces for the International Society for Biological and Environmental Repositories (ISBER). (wikipedia.org)
  • water
  • The effectiveness of these treatments is tightly linked to the timing of the water availability at the site. (wikipedia.org)
  • The biological pump, in its simplest form, is the ocean's biologically driven sequestration of carbon from the atmosphere to deep sea water and sediment. (wikipedia.org)
  • Sciences
  • citation needed] At Yale College he graduated summa cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa, received the Henry J. Belknap Prize in the Biological Sciences, and co-authored several scientific publications from work in the laboratory of Dr. Robert Handschumacher in the Department of Pharmacology at the Yale School of Medicine. (wikipedia.org)
  • chemical
  • All QIAGEN Silicon Valley use the Ingenuity Knowledge Base, which contains biological and chemical interactions and functional annotations created from millions of individually modeled relationships between proteins, genes, complexes, cells, tissues, drugs, and diseases. (wikipedia.org)
  • These frigates can operate in all environments, including those contaminated by nuclear, chemical or biological fallouts. (wikipedia.org)
  • target
  • For these reasons, they have improved efficacy and selectivity as antiandrogens and do not lower androgen levels, instead acting solely by directly blocking the actions of androgens at the level of their biological target, the AR. (wikipedia.org)
  • process
  • Apart from the bulk density and the energy consideration, it is important that raw biomass will deteriorate during storage due to biological degradation process. (fao.org)
  • Although proteomics and cytomics allow for the early detection of disease, much of the time those detect biological markers that exist because a disease process has already started. (wikipedia.org)
  • treatment
  • Genetic screening of newborns and children in the field of predictive medicine is deemed appropriate if there is a compelling clinical reason to do so, such as the availability of prevention or treatment as a child that would prevent future disease. (wikipedia.org)
