An Ecological Survey of the Herpetofauna of Palo Pinto County, Texas

Description: The purpose of this research was to compile a presence list of reptiles and amphibians that occur in Palo Pinto County, Texas, and to investigate the ecological distributions and zoogeographic affinities of these herpetiles. The study area was chosen primarily because of its location in North Central Texas and its rugged topography, which sets it apart from the surrounding area.

Capillary Permeability to Narrow-Range Macromolecular Dextrans at Normal and Hypobaric Pressures

Description: In view of its varied concepts and interpretations, and because of the discrepancies produced by the previous utilization of polydispersed dextrans, a study using extremely narrow-range molecular weight dextran fractions was initiated to reevaluate and consolidate some of the aspects of capillary permeability. A portion of the study was performed under decreased barometric pressure in order to clarify further some of the mechanisms involved in particulate transfer across the capillary endothelial membranes. Gel filtration procedures augmented the study as an assessment of the polydispersity effects of the dextrans employed.

DOE EPSCoR Initiative in Structural and computational Biology/Bioinformatics

Description: The overall goal of the DOE EPSCoR Initiative in Structural and Computational Biology was to enhance the competiveness of Vermont research in these scientific areas. To develop self-sustaining infrastructure, we increased the critical mass of faculty, developed shared resources that made junior researchers more competitive for federal research grants, implemented programs to train graduate and undergraduate students who participated in these research areas and provided seed money for research projects. During the time period funded by this DOE initiative: (1) four new faculty were recruited to the University of Vermont using DOE resources, three in Computational Biology and one in Structural Biology; (2) technical support was provided for the Computational and Structural Biology facilities; (3) twenty-two graduate students were directly funded by fellowships; (4) fifteen undergraduate students were supported during the summer; and (5) twenty-eight pilot projects were supported. Taken together these dollars resulted in a plethora of published papers, many in high profile journals in the fields and directly impacted competitive extramural funding based on structural or computational biology resulting in 49 million dollars awarded in grants (Appendix I), a 600% return on investment by DOE, the State and University.

The effects of diphenylhydantoin on the lymphoreticular tissues of the rat

Description: A study was made of the effects of diphenylhydantoin (DPH) and the carrier solution on the spleen, lymph node, and thymus. DPH was injected i.p. at concentrations of 5 and 10 mg./100gm. for 30 and 60 days. Hematologic effects observed were leucocytosis, neutrophilia, eosinophilia, and lymphopenia. Respiratory measurements of lymph node tissue slices were made using the oxygen electrode method.

Fumarase from Ascaris suum: partial purification and characterization

Description: One molecular form of fumarase from Ascaris suum was demonstrated by cellulose acetate electroporesis and isoelectric focusing. The enzyme was partially purified by ammonium sulfate fractionation and ion-exchange chromatography to a specific activity of 49 units per mg protein. Enzymatic assay of the partially purified by ammonium sulfate fractionation amd ion-exchange chromatography to a specific activity of 49 units per mg protein. Enzymatic assay of the partially purified preparation showed glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrongenase to be the major preparative contaminant.

Microbial actinomycete population studies in lacustrine substrates

Description: The discovery of the production of antibiotic materials by certain members of the Actinomycetales has stimulated the study of these organisms over the last two decades, raising them from a position of little significance to one of noticeable importance. These studies include investigations concerning the physiology and biochemistry of the actinomycetes.

Purification and characterization of Ascaris suum hexokinase

Description: A procedure for purifying hexokinase from Ascaris muscle has been developed. The physical and catalytic properties of the enzyme are comparable to mammalian hexokinases. The enzyme is a monomer with a molecular weight of 100,000 as determined by sodium dodecyl sulfate polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and gel filtration.

Effects of lysolecithin on macrophages

Description: The effect of lysolecithin on the macrophage was studied using five macrophage function assays. The results of indicate that lyso lecithin is a macrophage activating agent which causes enhanced cell spreading, increased phagocytosis of sheep erythrocytes, heightened membrane activity in the presence of damaged autologous red blood cells, chemotaxis, and vigorous phagocytosis and intracellular killing of Staphylococcus albus.

Physical characterization and restriction mapping of the SAL plasmid from Pseudomonas putida

Description: Physical and restriction mapping of the salicylate catabolic plasmid SAL from Pseudomonas putida strain PpG 2119 was carried out by standard multiple restriction analysis and by cross hybridization studies using radioactively labeled restriction fragment probes. The total numbers of fragments produced, their respective sizes, the arrangement of the restriction fragments on the plasmid and the map locations of the enzyme recognition sites for Hpal, Xhol, Dral and Smal are given.

Computational Biology and High Performance Computing 2000

Description: The pace of extraordinary advances in molecular biology has accelerated in the past decade due in large part to discoveries coming from genome projects on human and model organisms. The advances in the genome project so far, happening well ahead of schedule and under budget, have exceeded any dreams by its protagonists, let alone formal expectations. Biologists expect the next phase of the genome project to be even more startling in terms of dramatic breakthroughs in our understanding of human biology, the biology of health and of disease. Only today can biologists begin to envision the necessary experimental, computational and theoretical steps necessary to exploit genome sequence information for its medical impact, its contribution to biotechnology and economic competitiveness, and its ultimate contribution to environmental quality. High performance computing has become one of the critical enabling technologies, which will help to translate this vision of future advances in biology into reality. Biologists are increasingly becoming aware of the potential of high performance computing. The goal of this tutorial is to introduce the exciting new developments in computational biology and genomics to the high performance computing community.
