Custard Apple Seed Oil as a Pesticide

Vedant Lal, Swapnil Bansi, Rugved Deshpande, Nita Mehta
2021 Zenodo  
Abstract— Essential oils are oils extracted from plants. These categories of oils are obtained through distillation or mechanical methods such as cold pressing. Custard Apple Seed Oil is a type of essential oil. This oil can be used as an eco-friendly biopesticide. They are cheap, safe to use also maintains the fertility of the soil. Therefore natural pesticides like custard apple seed oil are given preference over synthetic pesticides. Oil extracted from it can be used as a pesticide against

Cold pressing, solvent extraction, steam distillation, maceration, percolation, tincture, and infusion are the methods that are used for custard apple seed oil extraction.

Epigenetic signatures differentiate uterine and soft tissue leiomyosarcoma

2021 OncoTarget  
Leiomyosarcomas (LMS) are diverse, rare, and aggressive mesenchymal soft tissue sarcomas. Epigenetic alterations influence multiple aspects of cancer, however epigenetic profiling of LMS has been limited. The goal of this study was to delineate the molecular landscape of LMS for subtype-specific differences (uterine LMS (ULMS) vs soft tissue LMS (STLMS)) based on integrated analysis of DNA methylation and gene expression to identify potential targets for therapeutic intervention and diagnosis.
more » ... e identified differentially methylated and differentially expressed genes associated with ULMS and STLMS using DNA methylation and RNA-seq data from primary tumors. Two main clusters were identified through unsupervised hierarchical clustering: ULMS-enriched cluster and STLMS-enriched cluster. The integrated analysis demonstrated 34 genes associated with hypermethylation of the promoter CpG islands and downregulation of gene expression in ULMS or STLMS. In summary, these results indicate that differential DNA methylation and gene expression patterns are associated with ULMS and STLMS. Further studies are needed to delineate the contribution of epigenetic regulation to LMS subtype-specific gene expression and determine the roles of the differentially methylated and differentially expressed genes as potential therapeutic targets or biomarkers.

INTRINSIC EVALUATION OF TEXT MINING TOOLS MAY NOT PREDICT PERFORMANCE ON REALISTIC TASKS

2007 Biocomputing 2008  
Biomedical text mining and other automated techniques are beginning to achieve performance which suggests that they could be applied to aid database curators. However, few studies have evaluated how these systems might work in practice. In this article we focus on the problem of annotating mutations in Protein Data Bank (PDB) entries, and evaluate the relationship between performance of two automated techniques, a text-mining-based approach (MutationFinder) and an alignment-based approach, in

We find that high performance on gold standard data (an intrinsic evaluation) does not necessarily translate to high performance for database annotation (an extrinsic evaluation). We show that this is in part a result of lack of access to the full text of journal articles, which appears to be critical for comprehensive database annotation by text mining. Additionally, we evaluate the accuracy and completeness of manually annotated mutation data in the PDB, and find that it is far from perfect. We conclude that currently the most cost-effective and reliable approach for database annotation might incorporate manual and automatic annotation methods.

Method for Determining theD0−D¯0Mixing Parameters

2007 Physical Review Letters  
We propose a new method to determine the mass and width differences of the two D meson mass-eigenstates as well as the CP violating parameters associated with D^0-D̅^0 mixing. We show that an accurate measurement of all the mixing parameters is possible for an arbitrary CP violating phase, by combining observables from a time dependent study of D decays to a doubly Cabibbo suppressed mode with information from a CP eigenstate. As an example we consider D^0-> K^*0π^0 decays where the K^*0 is

A combined analysis using D^0-> K^*0π^0 and D-> K^+K^- can also be used to reduce the ambiguity in the determination of parameters.

Development of oxygen vacancies and surface defects in Mn-doped ZnO nanoflowers for enhancing visible light photocatalytic activity

2020 SN Applied Sciences  
Pure and Mn-doped ZnO nanoflowers were successfully synthesized by the hydrothermal technique. Doping of Mn into ZnO lattice exhibits formation of oxygen vacancies and surface modifications into ZnO lattice was investigated by XPS spectra and AFM analysis. During the photocatalytic performance, vacancies create the trap centers for photogenerated electrons hence the electron-hole recombination is effectively inhibited. These formed oxygen vacancies along with enhanced surface area are due to Mn

The degradation efficiency for methylene blue dye exceeds 82% after 120 min under solar light irradiation, also the catalytic performance of Mn-doped ZnO nanoflowers retains even after 4 cycles.

Weak PhaseγUsing Isospin Analysis and Time-Dependent Asymmetry inBd→KSπ+π−

N. G. Deshpande, Nita Sinha, Rahul Sinha
2003 Physical Review Letters  
We present a method for measuring the weak phase gamma using isospin analysis of three body B decays into K pi pi channels. Differential decay widths and time dependent asymmetry in B_d -> K_s pi^+pi^- mode needs to be measured into even isospin pi pi states. The method can be used to extract gamma, as well as, the size of the electroweak penguin contributions. The technique is free from assumptions like SU(3) or neglect of any contributions to the decay amplitudes. By studying different

A Method for EHR Phenotype Management in an i2b2 Data Warehouse

Andrew Post, Nityananda Chappidi, Dileep Gunda, Nita Deshpande
2019
Electronic health record (EHR) data is valuable for finding patients for clinical research and analytics but is complex to query. EHR phenotyping involves the curation and dissemination of best practices for querying commonly studied populations. Phenotyping software computes patterns in clinical and administrative data and may add the found patterns as derived variables to a database that researchers can query. This paper describes a method for managing EHR phenotypes in a data warehouse as

Clinical Analytics phenotyping software system and evaluated the implementation's performance. The method shows promise for realizing the efficient addition, modification, and removal of derived variables representing phenotypes in a data warehouse.
