The mode of action of Lr13 complex in CIMMYT program is non race- specific resistance. Its presence in combination with Lr34 in some members of Bluebird series gave them long life.
For a layer thickness of 3 [micro]m, a sheet resistance of 400 [[OMEGA]/[??]] was achieved, which corresponds to a specific resistance of 0.12 [OMEGA] cm.
One can specify that a work surface has a specific resistance level when measured according to the test method outlined, but cannot specify that the work surface meets the requirements of the test method--the test method does not normally contain such requirements.
Many people believe that the time in which the force must be applied can be reduced in the weight room via specific resistance training exercises or via the traditional plyometric drills.
As a general guideline, the feed water required for producing humidity within a chamber should have a specific resistance of 0.5 to 1 megohms.
That's why I personally like the idea of specific resistance training.
* Fluoroelastomers in the automotive/off-the-road sector provide specific resistance to oxygenated fuels, and higher aromatic levels.
L6 resistance gene encodes NBS-LRR class ofR gene that confers race specific resistance to strains of flax rust (Melampsora lini) that carry avirulence alleles of the AvrL567 gene (64).
tritici races and race- specific resistance genes in wheat is interpreted according to the gene-for-gene model (Flor, 1971).
As drawing shows--within the specific resistance range up to 3000 [OMEGA]m (it coincides with real conditions) the biggest error is at high resistance values (near 3000 [OMEGA]m).
Individual layers are defined by material density (kgx[m.sup.-3]), specific thermal conductivity (Wx[m.sup.-1]x[K.sup.-1]), specific resistance (Wxm), specific heat capacity (Jx[kg.sup.-1]x[K.sup.-1]) and relative permeability (-).
