Spatial Cognition: Foundations and Applications : Selected Papers from Mind III, Annual Conference of the Cognitive Science Society of Ireland, 1998 (Advances in Consciousness Research)

Spatial Cognition brings jointly psychology, machine technological know-how, linguistics and geography, discussing how humans take into consideration house (our inner cognitive maps and spatial belief) and the way we speak approximately area, for example giving path instructions or utilizing spatial metaphors. The technological functions including dynamism to the realm contain machine interfaces, academic software program, multimedia, and in-car navigation structures.

Business Networks in Japan: Supplier-Customer Interaction in Product Development (Routledge Advances in Asia-Pacific Business, 3)

The notable luck of eastern has often been attributed to the inter-corporate alliances and networks that exist within the eastern economy. Many commentators argue that's has been those networks which have been key to either the fast progress and good fortune of eastern undefined. company Networks in Japan explores the construction of supplier-customer networks via case experiences of 2 of Japan's greatest businesses: the Toshiba company and the Nippon metal company.

Cell Polarity

Few cells agree to the stereotype of the round blob rapidly scribbled on chalkboards and, unfortunately, occasionally even displayed prominently in textbooks. as an alternative, actual cells demonstrate a awesome measure of structural and sensible asymmetry. In glossy cellphone organic parlance, this asymmetry has become lumped less than the final heading of "cell polarity".

Observing Land from Space: Science, Customers and Technology (Advances In Global Change Research Volume 4) (Advances in Global Change Research)

This quantity deals a vast review of the technological know-how and expertise of distant sensing, its coverage implications, and the desires of operational clients within the context of weather switch and environmental degradation over land. a few of the chapters derive from shows initially made on the first ENAMORS convention on Optical distant Sensing of Terrestrial Surfaces: New Sensors, complex Algorithms, and the chance for Novel purposes, held in Tuusula, Finland, in September 1997.

Representative structures of antimicrobial peptides in the Antimicrobial Peptide Database (APD): (A) α-helix (frog magainin; PDB ID: 2MAG); (B) β-sheet (bovine lactoferricin B; PDB ID: 1LFC); (C) αβ with both α-helices and β-sheet (insect heliomicin; PDB ID: 1I2U); (D) non-αβ structure (bovine indolicidin; PDB ID: 1G89). edu/AP). magnetic resonance) are searched simultaneously, only AMPs with non-αβ three-dimensional structures are found.

It is also clear that the biological functions of AMPs are not limited to antimicrobial activities, as discussed above. In particular, mammalian cathelicidins and defensins have multiple biological functions, in particular immune modulation. g. see human LL-37, APD ID: 310). Therefore, this field can annotate detailed information regarding the biology of AMPs as host defence molecules. Detailed classification and annotation also enable a more meaningful bioinformatic analysis of AMPs. Such results are useful in guiding peptide prediction and design, which we discuss in Chapter 4.
