A probability model has been developed for the survival of
irradiated bacteria with respect to the dose of radiation. This model
is applicable to those bacterial taxa to which the target theory applies.
Three estimation procedures are given for the purpose of
obtaining estimates of the probability model's parameters. These...
The selective masking effect of a thermally grown layer of silicon
dioxide has been widely utilized as a technique for controlling the
geometry and impurity concentration in semi-conductor device technology.
It is also recognized that the passivation of the silicon surface
by the vitreous silicon dioxide envelope protects the underlying...
Bluegill sunfish, Lepomia macrochirus, and cutthroat trout,
Salmo clarki, were exposed to a rapidly declining oxygen tension
for a period of time sufficient to just cause loss of equilibrium in
the fish. During recovery from the stress, measurements of
oxygen uptake, blood lactic acid, blood glucose, liver glycogen,
A quantitative comparison was made of the incorporation of
14, C¹⁴ lipid compounds into Lee influenza virus. The compounds
tested were either lipids reported to be present in the virus or precursors
to virus lipid components. Infected chorioallantoic tissues
were incubated in medium containing the C¹⁴ metabolites. The
