Epidermal RNA samples from FVB/N mice treated with PAH standards and
environmental PAH mixtures were harvested and purified using Trizol extraction and
RNeasy mini prep kit purification. Epidermal RNA integrity was low (RIN mean 3.5),
indicating significant RNA degradation and the need to modify handling, collection, and
processing of skin...

It was obtained the optimal rotation time for the polyculture of tilapia
nilótica and white shrimp in freshwater, with a bioeconómic model. Data
for modelling were extracted from an experiment conducted in
CINVESTAV-IPN, unit Mérida, during the summer of 2008. The stocking
densities studied were 32.2 tilapia/m3 and 33.7 and...
