While these uses are essential for the organisms' survival, marine natural products have demonstrated their value to human society as well. Asian countries used algae for centuries to treat or prevent illnesses as wide-ranging as cough, gout,...
IO transactions within a computer system have evolved along with other system components (i.e., CPU, memory, video) from programmed IO (PIO). In current mainstream systems (spanning from HPC to mobile) the IO transactions are CPU-centric descriptor-based DMA transactions. The key benefit is that slower IO devices can DMA write system...

The development of the Lee strain of type B influenza
virus was shown to be inhibited by puromycin in tissue culture of the chick embryo chorioallantoic membrane. The
compound is an antibiotic of unique structure which has
been reported to possess a broad range of biological activity
against unicellular and...
A two-part study was conducted to investigate some of the nutritional
relationships between dietary tri-o-cresylphosphate (TOCP), a
toxic stress material, and dietary vitamin E and selenium. In part
one, growth rate of male weanling Long-Evans rats and day-old
Japanese quail (Coturnix coturnix japonica) was used to determine the
