      We developed an instrument, Critical Engineering Literacy Test (CELT), which is a multiple choice instrument designed to measure undergraduate students’ scientific and information literacy skills. It requires students to first read a technical memo
      and, based on the memo’s arguments, answer eight multiple choice and six open-ended response questions. We collected data from 143 first-year engineering students and conducted an item analysis. The KR-20 reliability of the instrument was .39. Item
      difficulties ranged between .17 to .83. The results indicate low reliability index but acceptable levels of item difficulties and item discrimination indices. Students were most challenged when answering items measuring scientific and mathematical
      literacy (i.e., identifying incorrect information).

    <description xml:lang="en" descriptionType="Abstract">
      A ship-based acoustic mapping campaign was conducted at the exit of Ilulissat Ice Fjord and in the sedimentary basin of Disko Bay to the west of the fjord mouth. Submarine landscape and sediment distribution patterns are interpreted in terms of
      glaciomarine facies types that are related to variations in the past position of the glacier front. In particular, asymmetric ridges that form a curved entity and a large sill at the fjord mouth may represent moraines hat depict at least two
      relatively stable positions of the ice front in the Disko Bay and at the fjord mouth. In this respect, Ilulissat Glacier shows prominent differences to the East Greenland Kangerlussuaq Glacier which is comparable in present size and present role for
      the ice discharge from the inland ice sheet. Two linear clusters of pockmarks in the center of the sedimentary basin seem to be linked to ongoing methane release due to dissociation of gas hydrates, a process fueled by climate warming in the Arctic
      realm.

      To identify putative novel specific targets of mir-210, we overexpressed miR-210 as well as miR-34a and a siRNA targeted against E2F3 in A549 human adenocarcinoma cells by transfecting them with synthetic pre-miRNAs or a synthetic negative pre-miRNA
      as control (miR-Neg). RNA samples were harvested at 48 hours post-transfection and 2 independent experiments performed in dye-swap: miR-210 versus miR-Neg ; miR-34a versus miR-Neg ; si-E2F3 versus miR-Neg ; si-control versus miR-Neg.

    <description xml:lang="en" descriptionType="Abstract">This paper validates the fertility histories of the German Generations and Gender Survey (GGS). Focusing on the cohorts 1930-69 of West German women, the total number of children, the parity distribution and the parity progression ratios are comparedto external sources. One major result from this validation is that the German GGS understates the fertility for the older cohorts and overstates it for the younger ones.</description>

      This study replication data resource includes information referencing specific items in the Alzheimer's Disease Neuroimaging Initiative (ADNI) database that were used with the included analysis scripts (R statistical software) to reach conclusions
      presented in the referenced publication (DOI: 10.1016/j.jalz.2012.05.911).
    </description>
    <description xml:lang="en" descriptionType="Methods">
      Utilizing the ADNI database, we identified 41 individuals who remained stable for 48-months (NC) and 16 who converted to MCI (CNV). Of these 57 subjects, all had available baseline clinical and MRI data, but only 16 NC and 11 CNV had available
      FDG-PET data. Wilcoxon Rank Sum tests assessed baseline demographic and clinical imbalances between CNV and NC. The effect of conversion status on neuroimaging measures at baseline was tested using linear regression modeling. Finally, linear
      discriminant analysis (LDA) models were created using features from an a-priori subset of clinical metrics, MRI measures, and FDG-PET measures obtained at baseline to predict which individuals would later convert to MCI and which would remain stable.
      We used a leave-one-out cross validation strategy and permutation analysis to confirm significance.

      the very latest in state-of-the art energy efficiency, especially solar. Mr. Halter puts the home through an investigation and determines that it can, indeed, live up to its claims.

    <description xml:lang="en" descriptionType="Abstract">
      SOAPdenovo2 is the latest de novo genome assembly package from BGI's SOAP (short oligonucleotide analysis package) suite of tools (homepage here: http://soap.genomics.org.cn/). Compared to SOAPdenovo1, this new version has the advantage of a new
      algorithm design that reduces memory consumption in graph construction, resolves more repeat regions in contig assembly, increases coverage and length in scaffold construction, improves gap closure, and is optimized for large genomes. Using new
      sequencing data from the YH (Homo sapiens) diploid genome - the first sequenced Han Chinese individual, an updated assembly was produced (see dataset here: doi:10.5524/100038), with the N50 scores for the contig and scaffold being 3-fold and 50-fold
      longer, respectively, than the first published version. The genome coverage increased from 81.16% to 93.91%, and memory consumption was ~2/3 times lower during the point of largest memory consumption. Benchmarking with Assemblathon1 and GAGE datasets
      shows that SOAPdenovo2 greatly surpasses its predecessor SOAPdenovo1 and is competitive to other assemblers on both assembly length and accuracy. In order to facilitate readers to repeat and recreate these findings, configured packages with the
      compressed pipelines containing all of the necessary shell scripts and tools are available from the BGI FTP server (ftp://public.genomics.org.cn/BGI/SOAPdenovo2). The latest version of SOAPdenovo2 is available from Sourceforge:
      http://soapdenovo2.sourceforge.net/ These pipelines will also soon be made available from our data platform as Galaxy workflows: http://galaxy.cbiit.cuhk.edu.hk/

    <description xml:lang="en" descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;These files provide the original survey data of the paper on motivations for biodiversity conservation in Europe. This paper analyses the possibility of building a mutually supportive dynamics between
      internally and&lt;br /&gt; externally motivated behaviour for biodiversity conservation and ecosystem services provision. To this&lt;br /&gt; purpose a face to face survey amongst 169 key actors of 34 highly successful and prominent
      biodiversity&lt;br /&gt; arrangements in seven EU countries was conducted. The main&lt;br /&gt; finding of the paper is the feasibility of&lt;br /&gt; combining inherently intrinsically motivated behaviours (providing enjoyment, pleasure from&lt;br
      /&gt; experimentation and learning, aesthetic satisfaction) and internalized extrinsic motivations (related&lt;br /&gt; to the identification with the collective goals of conservation policy) through a common set of governance&lt;br /&gt; features.
      Successful initiatives that combine internal and external motivations share the following&lt;br /&gt; features: inclusive decision making processes, a broad monitoring by &amp;ldquo;peers&amp;rdquo; beyond the core staff of the&lt;br /&gt;
      initiatives, and a context that is supportive for the building of autonomous actor competences. These&lt;br /&gt; findings are in line with the psycho-sociological theory of motivation, which shows the importance of a&lt;br /&gt; psycho-social
      context leading to a subjective perception of autonomy and a sense of competence of the&lt;br /&gt; actors.&lt;/p&gt;</description>
