Strategy for in situ detection of natural transformation-based horizontal gene transfer events
(American Society for Microbiology, 2008)
A strategy is described that enables the in situ detection of natural transformation in Acinetobacter baylyi BD413 by the expression of a green fluorescent protein. Microscale detection of bacterial transformants growing ...
On a discrete generalized kinetic approach for modelling persuaders influence in opinion formation processes
This paper deals with the definition of a general framework, inspired by the discrete generalized kinetic theory, suitable for the description of the evolution of opinions within a population in the presence of some external ...
Conservation laws and asymptotic behavior of a model of social dynamics
A conservative social dynamics model is developed within a discrete kinetic framework for active particles, which has been proposed in [M.L. Bertotti, L. Delitala, From discrete kinetic and stochastic game theory to modelling ...

Template based production system design
Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to provide a methodological guidance for the practical use of the axiomatic designed production module template presented in a former publication. The objective is to accelerate the ...
Fluorescent-BOX-PCR for resolving bacterial genetic diversity, endemism and biogeography
(BioMed Central / Springer Verlag (Germany), 2008)
Background BOX-A1R-based repetitive extragenic palindromic-PCR (BOX-PCR) is one of the most used techniques in biogeography studies of microbial isolates. However the traditional separation of BOX-PCR patterns by agarose ...
Effects of rhizodeposition of non-transgenic and transplastomic tobaccos on the soil bacterial community
(EDP Sciences, 2008)
The effect of root-released compounds of transplastomic tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum) on the soil bacterial community structure, and their potential to support horizontal gene transfer (HGT) to bacteria have been studied. ...
