The New Method of Sea-sky Line Detection Based on Mathematical Morphology

wave will interfere with the image gradient calculation. For the complex images of sea conditions, these methods are limited in certain degree. In order to improve the robustness and accuracy of sea- sky line detection, the method of sea-sky line detection based on mathematical morphology is proposed. This method can improve the robustness of sea-sky line detection in the complex sea-sky background. The mathematical morphology are used to denoise sea-sky images and remove interference points, which

Intracellular Siderophore Detection in an Egyptian, Cobalt-Treated F. solani Isolate Using SEM-EDX with Reference to its Tolerance

An Egyptian, plant pathogenic Fusarium solani isolate was grown on cobalt concentrations of 0, 50, 200, 500, 800, and 1000 ppm. The iso­late survived concentrations up to 800 ppm, however failed to grow at 1000 ppm. Morphology and elemental analysis of the isolate under the investigated Co concentrations were studied using Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and energy dispersive X-ray microanalysis (EDX). The isolate reserved its morphology up to a concentration of 200 ppm. Morphological

In addition, the authors found three new Pristionchus species on millipedes, which are described as P. riukiariae sp. n., P. degawai sp. n., and P. laevicollis, sp. n., the latter of which was also found on stag beetles. These species are most closely related to P. maxplancki, P. japonicus, and P. quartusdecimus and belong to the pacificus species-complex. The authors describe all species based on morphology, morphometrics, and genome-wide sequence analysis. Mating

Compared to the previously described Portuguese population of B. antoniae, the sequences generated for the MA population were 98.3% similar in the ITS1, 2 rDNA and 99.9% similar for 28S rDNA. There was 99.2% similarity between the COI sequences of the US and Portuguese isolates of B. antoniae. This population has morphology consistent with that of Penas et al., 2006; however, the female tail on this MA pine population is mucronate and more attenuated than

ELLIPSE DETECTION ON EMBRYO IMAGING USING RANDOM SAMPLE CONSENSUS (RANSAC) METHOD BASED ON ARC SEGMENT

In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) is a method which is used to help couples who have a fertility problem. One of the problems of IVF is the success rate, which is only about 30%. One cause of the problem is the embryo morphology observation done by embryologist manually. Morphologically normal embryo does not mean the embryos are genetically normal. The aforementioned phenomena can be tested by using time lapse recording in which unavailable in the manual observation. Therefore it is very important

Primary and Secondary Bacteremia Caused by Proteus spp.: Epidemiology, Strains Susceptibility and Biofilm Formation

Abstract Proteus spp. is an etiological factor of urinary tract and bloodstream infections. The aim of this study was the retrospective analysis of susceptibility of Proteus spp. strains isolated from bloodstream infections (BSIs) as well as similarity evaluation of the strains isolated from different clinical samples. Proteus spp. strains were isolated in 2009–2017 from hospital patients. Identification was based on the colony’s morphology and biochemical or MALDI-TOF MS analyzes. The

CHANGES IN THE TAXONOMY OF γ-PROTEOBACTERIA, MODIFICATION OF THE ORDER ENTEROBACTERIALES AND NOVEL FAMILIES WITHIN ENTEROBACTERALES ORD. NOV.

Prokaryotic diversity increases every year with each new described species. Since the first discoveries of microorganisms, researchers’ endeavours are dedicated to the systematisation of all known living organisms in a consistent taxonomy. Originally based on morphology, in recent years modern taxonomy develops thanks to the implemenation of new discoveries in the fields of biochemistry and genetics. In the last thirty years, ribotyping was the leading technique used to classify

First report of molecular characterization and phylogeny of Trichuris fossor Hall, 1916 (Nematoda: Trichuridae)

, 1993). Descriptions have been based on morphology and host preference and Trichuris from geomyid hosts have never been sequenced (Eberhardt et al., 2019). The aim of this study was to serve as the first molecular report for T. fossor. The 18S rRNA gene was sequenced for four specimens identified putatively as T. fossor collected from separate Thomomys (western pocket gophers) species hosts. Materials and methods Thomomys bulbivorus (Richardson, 1829; Brandt, 1855) were salvaged from trappers

Plant-parasitic nematodes associated with sugarcane in Kilimanjaro, Tanzania

and the unidentified Rotylenchulus spp. sequences of South Africa appeared to have a sister relationship with R. macrodoratus (PP = 0.86). Remarks The morphology and morphometrics of the current immature female specimens correspond very well with that of the original description of R. parvus (=Helicotylenchus parvus), found also around sugarcane roots in Mauritius by Williams (1960a, b). Rotylenchulus parvus, in general, compared to other related species, has a slightly smaller body, 3 to 5

Kell and Kx blood group systems

The Kell and Kx blood group systems are expressed as covalently linked molecules on red blood cells (RBCs). The Kell blood group system is very polymorphic, with 35 antigens assigned to the system. The expression of Kell glycoprotein on RBCs is not critical to the erythrocyte function. However, the expression of Kx is critical to normal morphology, and null mutations are associated with the McLeod neuroacanthocytosis syndrome. The immunogenicity of the K antigen is second only to the D antigen

The valid Ektaphelenchus species have been listed according to a number of incisures in Table 2, but many species were described without mentioning the lateral lines. Another diagnostic character is the spicule morphology (Kanzaki, 2006; Braasch et al., 2009; Maria et al., 2015), available species spicule drawn and presented in Fig. 3, but this characters cannot be used when the species are only described

Two new Species of Pristionchus (Nematoda: Diplogastridae) include the Gonochoristic Sister Species of P. fissidentatus

sister group to all described beetle-associated Pristionchus species. Thus, the gonochorist P. paulseni sp. n. has a crucial position in the phylogeny of Pristionchus. In order to characterize both species, morphology, morphometrics, mating experiments and genome-wide transcriptome sequencing are used. Materials and methods Nematode cultivation One strain of P. paulseni sp. n. was isolated from an adult of Lucanus dybowski taiwanus (Miwa, 1937) (Coleoptera: Lucanidae) collected at Pilu sacred tree
