The flexibility of hydrogen makes it a probable candidate for a common gas, and Congress has lately voted to extend study spending during this quarter. This convention will research organismal techniques (bacteria, eco-friendly algae, and cyanobacteria), bioreactor engineering and big scale platforms, institutional concerns corresponding to tradition creditors, databases, and overseas cooperation, marine-based structures, and commercialization. The editor, Oskar Zaborsky, is the editor of the Plenum sequence, Marine Biotechnology.

Imaging Living Cells

Superior expertise for imaging residing cells, particular mobile ambitions and organelles is having a dramatic impression on easy and utilized examine. by way of combining optical layout and molecular genetics, a brand new sequence of instruments is being built and effectively utilized including classical probes. Novel labelling thoughts, larger software program for picture enhancement and research are actually to be had and make allowance snapshot acquisition with higher pace and precision.

The Physiological Genomics of the Critically Ill Mouse

The physiological genomics of the cardiovascular approach reports the connection among gene and physiological (dys)function. it's a quickly constructing sector of study and distinguishes itself from different parts of molecular drugs through its hugely integrative nature. during this multi­ disciplinarian zone of the physiological sciences, there's interplay among gene constitution and physiological cardiovascular functionality in addition to interactions among different organs and their physiological cubicles.

Econophysics of Wealth Distributions: Econophys-Kolkata I

Realizing the distribution of source of revenue and wealth in an financial system has been a vintage challenge in economics for the final hundred years. except the speedily decaying quantity density of individuals with their source of revenue crossing over to a powerful energy legislation for the very wealthy, often called the Pareto power-law, after Vilfredo Pareto.

The development of practical biohydrogen production systems will require focusing on the more promising alternatives and critical R&D issues and could be accelerated through international basic and applied R&D collaborations. 2. , 1972). The late Prof. Lester Krampitz reported that experiments were underway in his laboratory to produce H 2 by coupling chloroplasts with methyl viologen and a bacterial hydrogenase (see Krampitz, 1977). , 1973). This suggested that the H 2 was derived from water and was inhibited by the 02 produced during the reaction (although simultaneous 02 and H 2 production by this system was not actually demonstrated until later work by Greenbaum[ 1980]).

From unique marine environments, photosynthetic microorganisms that are the largest primary producers of biomass are attracting attention as new gene resources. We report the results of screening of useful products from marine photosynthetic microorganisms, as well as the use of those organisms as a gene resource. Productivity of useful products has been improved by metabolic engineering. The survival strategies of novel marine cyanobacterial strains to environmental stress at the molecular level are described.

R. Benemann The alternative to a direct biophotolysis process is indirect biophotolysis processes in which CO 2 serves as the electron carrier between the O2-producing water splitting and 02sensitive hydrogenase reactions. Thus, these reactions are temporally separated, or even spatially in different reactors. In such concepts, the algae would undergo a cycle of CO 2 fixation into storage carbohydrates (starch, glycogen) followed by its conversion to H 2 by endogenous metabolic processes, first in the dark and then in the light.
