The unforeseen impact of meeting abstracts on cancer research

KEYWORDS:

ABSTRACT: The dissemination of scientific information usually occurs through peer-reviewed journals. Nevertheless, scientific conferences have shown to be an instance for researchers to communicate their results, obtaining immediate feedback on their findings. Yet, some researchers disregard the information presented at these conferences simply because it has not gone through a peer review process [1]. Therefore, […]

Ribosomal internal transcribed spacer 2 (ITS2) exhibits a common core of secondary structure in vertebrates and yeast

KEYWORDS:

ABSTRACT: Molecular mechanisms of ITS2 processing, a eukaryotic insertion between the 5.8S and LSU rRNA, remain largely elusive even in yeast. To delineate ITS2 structural and functional features which could be common to eukaryotes, we first produced phylogenetically supported folding models in the vertebrate lineage, then tested them in deeper branching and, more particularly, among […]

Making friends in High Places? Astronomy and Geophysics

KEYWORDS:

ABSTRACT: In July an important decision was made by the board of the Thirty Meter Telescope Observatory, selecting Mauna Kea in Hawaii as the site for the construction of the TMT, rather than Cerro Armazones in Chile. The announcement was made in IYA2009, 400 years after the invention of the telescope, a device that has […]

Fine tuning assessment of research: The hKA index.

KEYWORDS:

ABSTRACT: During the past few years, institutions, scientific academies and government funding offices have adopted the h-index (Hirsch, 2005) as a parameter to measure research achievement. Several groups have discussed the limitations of the h-index (Costas and Bordons, 2007; Lawrence, 2007; Qiu et al., 2008). However, none of them have considered if the person being analyzed is a […]

Una mirada epistemométrica de la Revista Médica de Chile y su aporte al conocimiento de la Medicina

KEYWORDS:

ABSTRACT: During the last decade Revista Médica de Chile increased its visibility, measured on citations and impact factor. Aim: To perform a scientometric analysis to assess the performance of Revista Médica de Chile. Material and methods: Thomson’s-ISI Web of Science and Journal Citation Reports (JCR) were consulted for performance indicators of Revista Médica de Chile and Latin American journals […]

Generation and analysis of an Eucalyptus globulus cDNA library constructed from seedlings subjected to low temperature conditions

KEYWORDS:

ABSTRACT: Eucalyptus globulus is the most important commercial temperate hardwood in the world because of its wood properties and due to its characteristics for biofuel production. However, only a very low number of expressed sequence tags (ESTs) are publicly available for this tree species. We constructed a cDNA from E. globulus seedlings subjected to low […]

Plant Science research productivity in Chile during the past 20 years

KEYWORDS:

ABSTRACT: The purpose of this study was to carry out a bibliometric analysis of the articles published in Chile during 1987-2006  that were categorized into the Planet Science discipline by ISI. The data was extracted from the Web of Science database, obtaining a total of 911 articles for analysis. Almost half of the articles were […]

Low awareness of the link between science and innovation affects public policies in developing countries: The Chilean case

KEYWORDS:

ABSTRACT: Developing countries share disbelief about the benefits of the endogenous production of science as a tool for economical growth. Hence, public policies to strengthen science and technology and promote the culture of innovation are, in general, weak and sometimes incoherent. Patenting has become not only an icon to protect discoveries which can yield profits […]

Isolation and characterization of a cDNA encoding a CBF transcription factor from E. globulus

KEYWORDS:

ABSTRACT: The transcription factors CBF/DREB play an important role during low temperature, drought and high-salt stress in higher plants. In this work, we isolated one full-length CBF cDNA clone from the angiosperm Eucalyptus globulus. The derived peptide sequence reveals that it encodes a transcriptional activator that has all the characteristic motifs present in CBF proteins previously described […]
