Moveable, fuel-localized-power (flp) plant


A power plant can provide increased power from fossil fuels with reduced increase of the carbon burden. The plant is moveable and is located in a fossil fuel field, either a new field or a “depleted” field.” the co2 generated from the plant is compressed to a concentrated fluid and is re-injected into the underground strata from which the fossil fuel is extracted.

Biomarkers of response to inhibition of poly-adp ribose polymerase (parp) in cancer


Provided herein are methods of identifying a subject having a poly-adp ribose polymerase (parp) inhibitor-sensitive tumor by detecting a genomic gain in chromosome 1q21 and/or chromosome 20q13.3 in a tumor sample from the subject. Also provided are methods of identifying a subject having a parp inhibitor-sensitive tumor by detecting gene amplification of a chd1l gene or an rtel1 gene in a tumor sample from the subject.

Method of determining the nucleotide sequence of oligonucleotides and dna molecules


The present invention relates to a novel method for analyzing nucleic acid sequences based on real-time detection of dna polymerase-catalyzed incorporation of each of the four nucleotide bases, supplied individually and serially in a microfluidic system, to a reaction cell containing a template system comprising a dna fragment of unknown sequence and an oligonucleotide primer. Incorporation of a nucleotide base into the template system can be detected by any of a variety of methods including but not limited to fluorescence and chemiluminescence detection.

Determination of variants produced upon replication or transcription of nucleic acid sequences


A method of determining whether or not a nucleic acid having an expected sequence or one or more variants of the expected sequence are present in a sample containing nucleic acids after replication, transcription or editing (or other transformation) of a substrate nucleic acid. The method involves deciding an expected sequence likely to be formed in the sample upon the replication, transcription or editing of the substrate nucleic acid, and possible variants of the expected sequence, providing primer pairs for a polymerase chain reaction, reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction or ligase chain reaction, carrying out the polymerase chain reaction or reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction in one or more steps to form amplicons, and analyzing the amplicons to determining whether or not a nucleic acid having the expected sequence and/or variants are present in the sample.

Method for decreasing pyruvate catabolism and increasing the accumulation of pyruvate in microbes


The present invention provides a method for decreasing pyruvate catabolism and increasing the accumulation of pyruvate in microbes. By overexpressing wild type dihydrolipoamide acetyltransferase or dihydrolipoamide acetyltransferase mutants which have mutations at conservative active sites, the present invention provide a method to decrease overall activity of pyruvate dehydrogenase complex and pyruvate catabolism, and thus increase the accumulation of extracellular pyruvate without killing the pyruvate-producing microbes.
