    InterPro (http://www.ebi.ac.uk/interpro/) is a freely available database used to classify protein sequences into families and to predict the presence of important domains and sites. InterProScan is the underlying ...
  • Greene, Daniel G.; Ferraro, Daniel V.; Lenhoff, Abraham M.; Wagner, Norman J. (International Union of Crystallography, 2016-09-29)
    The decoupling approximation, proposed by Kotlarchyk & Chen [J. Chem. Phys. (1983), 79, 2461–2469], is a first-order correction to the experimentally determined apparent structure factor that is necessary because of ...
  • The UniProt Consortium; Wu, Cathy H. (Oxford University Press on behalf of Nucleic Acids Research, 2016-11-28)
    The UniProt knowledgebase is a large resource of protein sequences and associated detailed annotation. The database contains over 60 million sequences, of which over half a million sequences have been curated by experts ...
  • Zhang, Xingyuan; Wang, Jian-Gan; Liu, Huanyan; Liu, Hongzhen; Wei, Bingqing (MDPI, 2017-01-18)
    Three-dimensional V2O5 hollow structures have been prepared through a simple synthesis strategy combining solvothermal treatment and a subsequent thermal annealing. The V2O5 materials are composed of microspheres 2–3 m ...
  • Hudson, Lawrence N.; McCarthy, Jennifer L.; McCarthy, Kyle P. (Wiley, 2016-12-16)
    The PREDICTS project—Projecting Responses of Ecological Diversity In Changing Terrestrial Systems (www.predicts.org.uk)—has collated from published studies a large, reasonably representative database of comparable samples ...
  • Landsman, Andrew P.; Bowman, Jacob L. (Ecological Society of America, 2017-02-21)
    Despite the breadth of research on impacts of dense ungulate populations and invasive plants on native vegetation, work involving indirect effects on spider communities is explicitly lacking. Forest spiders depend on ...
