Simple Digital Photography for Assessing Biomass and Leaf Area Index in Cereals
Authors:  Jaume Casadesús and Dolors Villegas, date: 06/05/2015, view: 3168, Q&A: 0
These instructions refer to obtaining fast and low-labour estimates of ground cover, leaf area index and green biomass for a large number of plots, as those encountered in cereal breeding programs. The procedure includes obtaining the pictures in the field and processing them once downloaded to a computer.
Zymogram Assay for the Detection of Peptidoglycan Hydrolases in Streptococcus mutans
Authors:  Delphine Dufour and Céline M. Lévesque, date: 08/20/2013, view: 5068, Q&A: 1
Peptidoglycan hydrolases or autolysins are enzymes capable of cleaving covalent bonds in bacterial peptidoglycan cell wall layer. They can participate in the cell division process, in the release of turnover products from peptidoglycan during cell growth, and in cell autolysis induced under particular conditions. The protocol for zymogram ...
