Headquartered in New York, New York, Recombine is a clinical genetic testing company dedicated to helping patients and providers make informed decisions based on comprehensive and clinically actionable genetic testing results.
The mirrors redirect the signals to the intended receiver, who recombines the photons to reconstruct the message.
Because Toxoplasma strains only recombine in cats, the researchers provided mice infected with different Toxoplasma strains for the cats to eat.
The modulation speed of either a light-emitting diode or a light-emitting transistor is limited by the rate at which electrons and holes (the minus and plus charges - the carriers of current) recombine.
The line of recombine equipment works at up to 800 x 1100 mm recombine area, and the electroforming tanks will build shims up to a 550 x 650 mm.
The electron and hole recombine in the QD, emitting exactly one photon that is incident on an intensity interferometer with a 50/50 percent beamsplitter and photon counting detectors.
The ability to isolate, identify and recombine genes is making the gene pool available, for the first time, as the primary raw resource for future economic activity on Earth.
One could even imagine genetic algorithm messages, where competing messages are sent into cyberspace and programmed to periodically recombine themselves using genetic algorithms: strong parent messages eliminating weaker messages and recombining to give birth to an even stronger generation of messages -- strength being, for instance, measured by the persuasiveness of a message (number of people it motivates to act), or by the importance of the debate it generates (number of times it gets played back or developed).
Paul Berger, who lives and works in Seattle, has, since the mid-'70s, been particularly attentive to how images inevitably combine and recombine and to the processes we evolve and employ to "read" what we see.
Since the experimental vaccine is alive, scientists need to test it thoroughly to ensure that it won't recombine with dengue or other viruses already in a host and regain its virulence, Chang says.
It has in-house recombine and electroforming resources.
We scoured the tape back and forth to find the hees, the has and the hos, to recombine them in all these different ways to not make it sound like a tape-machine repeating over and over and over,'' said Williams-Johnson.
