Recurrent phenotypic selection for increased winter productivity in annual ryegrass (Lolium multiflorum Lam.)
In the Southeastern USA, dry matter distribution of cool season annual and perennial grasses is concentrated more in spring months with relatively less production in late autumn and early winter. Annual cool season grasses ...
Recalibration of the Asphalt Layer Coefficient
The Alabama Department of Transportation (ALDOT) currently uses the 1993 DARWin version of the 1986 American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) Guide for the Design of Pavement Structures ...
Polyketide Synthase Pathway Discovery from Soil Metagenomic Libraries
Polyketides are structurally diverse bacterial secondary metabolites, many of which have antibiotic or anti-cancer activity. Modular polyketide synthase (PKS) enzymatic complexes contain conserved ketoacyl synthase (KS) ...
Geology of the Farmville Metagranite and Associated Units as Exposed at the Notasulga Quarry, Notasulga, Alabama
Predicting the locations and thicknesses of aggregate-affable lithologies (ore units), interburden (non-ore material between ore-units), and overburden (overlying soil/saprolite) on a local level is critical for developing ...
Impact of Charge Collection Mechanisms on Single Event Effects in SiGe HBT Circuits
Investigations into single event effect (SEE) induced charge collection in Silicon Germanium (SiGe) heterojunction bipolar transistors (HBT) are made through three-dimensional (3-D) device simulation. The transistor ...
Utilization of Distiller’s Dried Grains with Soluble in Catfish Feeds
Feed is generally the largest expenditure in semi-intensive and intensive catfish culture operations, and protein is the most expensive component of feeds. Efforts to reduce feed costs have resulted in increased use of ...
A New Approach to Voting: An Accessible Voter Verifiable Paper Ballot
