Evaluation of a Chicken 600K SNP genotyping array in non-model species of grouse (open access)

Evaluation of a Chicken 600K SNP genotyping array in non-model species of grouse

This article tested the cross-species application of the Affymetrix 600K Chicken SNP array in five species of North American prairie grouse (Centrocercus and Tympanuchus genera). This study study provided evidence for successful cross-species application of the chicken SNP array in grouse which diverged ca. 37 mya from the chicken lineage. As far as the authors are concerned, this is the first reported application of a SNP array in non-passerine birds, and it demonstrates the feasibility of using commercial SNP arrays in research on non-model bird species.

Artificially structured boundary for confinement of effectively unmagnetized cryogenic antimatter plasmas (open access)

Artificially structured boundary for confinement of effectively unmagnetized cryogenic antimatter plasmas

The article is from conference proceedings that discuss an artificially structured boundary (ABS) considered to consist of a spatially periodic arrangement of electrostatically plugged magnetic cusps. As envisioned, a non-neutral positron plasma could be confined by an ASB along its edge, and the space charge of the positron plasma would serve to confine an antiproton plasma. If the conditions of the two-species plasma are suitable, production of antihydrogen via three-body recombination for antimatter gravity studies may be possible.

Rapid embryonic accretion of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) in the brain of an altricial bird with an aquatic-based maternal diet (open access)

Rapid embryonic accretion of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) in the brain of an altricial bird with an aquatic-based maternal diet

This article communicates the results of a study conducted on red-winged blackbirds where brain phospholipid composition during development was measured and diet was manipulated. The dietary study confirmed that nestling brains are sensitive to fatty acid supply. The findings of this article suggest that Red-winged blackbirds may be able to advance cognitive development relative to other altricial species owing to their aquatic maternal diet.

Relaxation time approximations in PAOFLOW 2.0 (open access)

Relaxation time approximations in PAOFLOW 2.0

Article presents the implementation of relaxation time approximation models in the calculation of Boltzmann transport in PAOFLOW 2.0 and applies those to model band-structures. In addition, using a self-consistent fitting of the model parameters to experimental conductivity data, the authors provide a flexible tool to extract scattering rates with high accuracy. They illustrate the approximations using simple models and then apply the method to GaAs, Si, Mg₃Sb₂, and CoSb₃.
