  • loci
  • Interestingly, though the three of us are definitely not related, our microsatellites showed that my two lab partners could have been my parents, supporting the idea that more loci need to be examined to truly determine paternity/maternity. (slideshare.net)
  • b) Microsatellite loci are now commonly assessed using fluorescent PCR amplifications, capillary electrophoresis, and automated sequencing techniques. (hindawi.com)
  • In this article, we report the first such comprehensive phylogenetic analyses for maize and teosinte by using 99 microsatellite loci that provide broad coverage of the maize genome and a sample of 264 maize and teosinte plants. (pnas.org)
  • Thus, the mutation rate at microsatellite loci is expected to differ from other mutation rates, such as base substitution rates. (wikipedia.org)
  • loss of heterozygos
  • In the right panel, an information (heterozygous) microsatellite is shown in the genomic control sample, and a significant loss of signal intensity for the smaller allele is observed in the tumor sample, characteristic of allelic imbalance/loss of heterozygosity (LOH). (hindawi.com)
  • orbit
  • The eight microsatellites orbit at an inclination of 35°, and are each capable of measuring 4 simultaneous reflections, resulting in 32 wind measurements per second across the globe. (wikipedia.org)
  • nucleotides
  • A microsatellite is a tract of tandemly repeated (i.e. adjacent) DNA motifs that range in length from one to six or up to ten nucleotides (the exact definition and delineation to the longer minisatellites varies from author to author), and are typically repeated 5-50 times. (wikipedia.org)
  • 2016
  • The Maritime Monitoring and Messaging Microsatellite (M3MSat) is a tele-detection satellite developed by the Canadian Space Agency and launched in 2016. (wikipedia.org)
  • research
  • Reflector (USA-163) is a space debris research microsatellite built in Russia by NII KP for the United States Air Force Research Lab at Kirtland AFB. (wikipedia.org)
  • The Anna University Satellite, or ANUSAT was an Indian student research microsatellite designed, developed & integrated at Aerospace Engineering, Madras Institute of Technology (MIT), Chromepet, Anna University. (wikipedia.org)
  • launch
  • There has been some confusion about whether or not the USA-163 designation had actually ever been assigned, which appears to stem from the fact that more than one microsatellite may fly on a given launch vehicle. (wikipedia.org)
  • Companies planning small sat launch vehicles include: Virgin Orbit's LauncherOne (100 kg) Rocket Lab's Electron (150 kg) PLD Space (150 kg) The term "microsatellite" or "microsat" is usually applied to the name of an artificial satellite with a wet mass between 10 and 100 kg (22 and 220 lb). (wikipedia.org)
  • A number of commercial and military-contractor companies are currently developing microsatellite launch vehicles to perform the increasingly targeted launch requirements of microsatellites. (wikipedia.org)
  • While microsatellites have been carried to space for many years as secondary payloads aboard larger launchers, the secondary payload paradigm does not provide the specificity required for many increasingly sophisticated small satellites that have unique orbital and launch-timing requirements. (wikipedia.org)
  • provide
  • the direct signals pinpoint the microsatellite position and provide a timing reference, while the reflected or "scattered" signals provide information about the condition of the sea's surface. (wikipedia.org)
  • program
  • The Philippine Scientific Earth Observation Microsatellite (PHL-Microsat) program is a satellite program carried by the Department of Science and Technology (DOST) of the Philippines in cooperation with the Tohoku and Hokkaido Universities of Japan. (wikipedia.org)
