The authors of the research presented in this special collection used the first description of the B73 maize genome to probe some of the most intriguing questions in genetics and plant biology. Read about maize centromeres, new insights into transposon types and distribution, the abundance of very short FLcDNAs encoding predicted peptides, and many other "genetic jewels" contained herein.

In this professional development session, we will develop a shared understanding of how formative assessment works and different approaches that have been developed. The material for this resource come from a series of PD sessions on formative assessment developed by the ACESSE team: Philip Bell, Shelley Stromholt, Bill Penuel, Katie Van Horne, Tiffany Neill, and Sam Shaw.We will be updating this Facilitator's Guide for ACESSE Resource A with the most up-to-date information about this resource over time.

Abstract: This session provides a step-by-step process to support participants as they design a 3D assessment task for the science classroom. Along the way, they learn how to define 3D learning performances for specific lessons—and how to use a range of tools to support their assessment design work. A key goal of the session activity is to improve the connection of intended learning goals to assessment practices. Participants build their 3D assessment design capacity by designing and workshopping tasks—before piloting them in their classrooms. The approaches learned in this workshop can be used with any curricula, at any grade level, and across all subjects of science.
Overview: In this workshop, we will build our capacity to identify the range of intellectual resources students use as they make sense of phenomena. We will first explore how equity and justice relate to culture-based approaches to pedagogy—and then focus on how to identify and leverage the resources students use in moments of sensemaking. This resource can also be used by individuals wanting to learn how equity involves promoting the rightful presence of all students across scales of justice, desettling inequities, and supporting expansive learning pathways. This workshop provides participants with an opportunity to explore important theoretical ideas by exploring examples of how learners engage in diverse sense-making. Participants will learn about some of the challenges that less expansive learning environments can cause for learners from non-dominant communities. This resource is estimated to take between 161-268 minutes (2 ⅔ - 4 ¾ hours), depending on the choices of the facilitator in scenario selection.
Academic Journal of Surgery (AJS) is the official scientific journal of Research Center for Improvement of Surgical Outcomes & Procedures (RCISOP) affiliated to Tehran University of Medical Sciences. AJS is an open access, peer-reviewed, and quarterly journal that considers for publication articles in all fields and specialties of surgery in English language. This journal has both online and print versions and no charges are levied for publication.
Currently, AJS is indexed and abstracted in: Citefactor, UlrichsWeb, Index Copernicus (IC), Directory of Research Journal Indexing (DRJI), Google Scholar, International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE), Open Academic Journals Index (OAJI), Advanced Science Index (ASI), Unversal Impact Factor (UIF), Directory of Abstract Indexing for Journals (DAJI), JournalTOCs, Electronic Journal Library (EZB), Scientific Indexing Services (SIS), AcademicKeys, Research Bible, InfoBase Index, Cosmoc Impacr Factor, Scholar Steer, Magiran, and IranMedex.
AJS focuses on all fields and specialties of surgery including General Surgery, Orthopedic Surgery, Pediatric Surgery, Neurosurgery, Plastic Surgery, Cardiothoracic Surgery, Vascular Surgery, Endocrine Surgery, GI Surgery, Colorectal Surgery, Urology, Surgical Oncology, Radiology, Anaesthesia, Trauma Services, ENT, particularly about surgical practice and research. Content includes Original Articles, Systematic Review or Meta-Analysis, Review Articles, Case Reports, Letters to the Editor, Clinical Trials and Health Policy Challenge.
This is the third and last part of a webinar series on InterPro which is held between May 6th 2020 and May 20th 2020.
InterPro is a database that helps users to understand the possible functions of proteins sequence by identifying what family it belongs to or what domains and motifs it contains. To deal with the growing volume of protein sequence data and an increasing demand to retrieve subsets of the data, often via programmatic access, the InterPro website has been entirely redesigned. It provides additional features and more flexibility in querying, presenting and retrieving data. The website relies on an Application Programming Interface (API) which can also be utilised by users for direct access to the data.
This webinar describes how the InterPro data is structured in the API, and how it could be accessed programmatically for further bioinformatics analyses.
You can access the slides via GitHub.
Who is this course for?
This webinar is aimed at scientists and bioinformaticians, with basic programming knowledge, who are interested in accessing the InterPro database programmatically.
