Complementary DNA (cDNA) clones were generated from the RNA genome
of infectious hematopoietic necrosis virus (IHNV) by using random DNA
oligomers to prime first strand synthesis. These clones were mapped to
their respective locations on the genome and used to determine the
nucleotide sequence of the nucleocapsid (N) gene and...
Sororities play an important role in the process by which sorority women
become gendered by influencing members' ideas about what it means to be a
woman. Women and men become gendered through regular social interaction with
other women and men, and sororities have a particularly strong impact on their
This dissertation describes a new radio-frequency power-amplifier circuit and mode of operation that exceeds the efficiency of the conventional class C amplifier in the low and medium h-f range. It will be found useful in applications where linearity between the input and output are not required, as in all applications...
Several experiments were undertaken to investigate the mechanism of
photodechlorination of pentachlorobenzene. The thermal methoxydechlorination
reaction of pentachlorobenzene was studied. In DMSO at 50 °C sodium
methoxide reacts smoothly with pentachlorobenzene to give three
tetrachloroanisole isomers. A second-order kinetic plot for this reaction is linear to
high precision, indicating that...
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the activity of Sindone
(isomers of 1, 1-dimethyl-diisopropyl-indanyl ethyl ketone) under
field conditions and to gain information regarding the rate of detoxification
of Sindone in soil. A series of trials were established in
sugar beet fields in California, Oregon, and Washington. Sindone...
Laboratory studies were conducted on the food consumption, growth, and bioenergetics of juvenile coho salmon (Oncoynchus kisutch) held at various swimming velocities and dissolved oxygen
concentrations at 15 C. Food consumption and growth of salmon fed to repletion on housefly larvae (Mus domesticus) were reduced by increasing activity at and...
Although much has been written describing the
various reactions to the origin of Species in America, the Mormon reaction to Darwinism has been largely ignored. This dissertation will recount the history of this reaction as exemplified by the life and works of B. H. Roberts. Roberts's intellectual pursuits early in...
