Organic waste treatment for power production and energy supply

Sudan is endowed with abundant solar, wind, hydro, and biomass resources. Like many tropical countries, sudan has ample biomass resources that can be efficiently exploited in a manner that is both profitable and sustainable. Fuel-wood farming offers cost-effective and environmentally friendly energy solutions for Sudan, with the added benefit of providing sustainable livelihoods in rural areas. Biogas from biomass...

Detection and mapping of QTL on bovine chromosomes 2 and 5 segregating for live weight, average daily gain and body measurements in Japanese black cattle

Bovine chromosomes 2 (BTA2) and 5 (BTA5) of purebred, half-sib progeny sired by five Japanese black bulls were genotyped using microsatellite DNA markers. The data were subjected to linkage analysis for the detection and mapping of segregating quantitative trait loci (QTL) influencing live weight, average daily gain and body measurements at weaning. Probability coefficients of inheriting allele 1 or 2 from the sire at...

Postnatal development of zygomatic glands from guinea pig: a morphological and morphometric analyses

The postnatal development of zygomatic glands from guinea pig (Cavia porcellus) ranging from 2 to 140 days of postnatal life was studied by means of morphological and morphometric methods. The results showed that the body weight growth has occurred in two phases from 2 to 7 and from 14 to 140 days. With respect to gland mass, its growth has also occurred in two phases from 2 to 7 and from 14 to 140 days of life....
