Miscanthus is a C4 perennial rhizomatous grass that has become a leading candidate crop for production of lignocellulosic feedstocks due to its rapid biomass accumulation in temperate climates. There is currently a single commercial clone, M. x giganteus, which has a number of limitations. Research over the past 20 years has shown that a few key species and their interspecific hybrids have a high yield potential whilst requiring low inputs. The overall objective of this project is to optimize the miscanthus bioenergy and bioproduct chain by: trialling elite germplasm types over a range of sites across Europe, Ukraine and Russia; analysing the key traits that currently limit the potential of miscanthus; identifying high-value bioproducts; and modelling the combined results to provide recommendations to policy makers, growers and industry. The outcomes of the project will include screened germplasm and knowledge which will provide solutions to key existing bottlenecks. The specific topics tackled in the field and controlled environment trials are (1) dissection of the traits underpinning tolerance to the abiotic stresses drought, salinity, cold and freezing, (2) yield and quality in a wide range of environments, taking into consideration traits such as senescence, nutrient recycling and nutrient-use efficiency, (3) process-ability of biomass to convenient fuel formats and added-value products. Data gathered will be integrated through the development of modelling parameters needed to build up life-cycle analysis models and other decision support tools to identify optimum production scenarios in the EU, Ukraine and Russia. Recommendations will be provided to miscanthus developers on appropriate genotype selection, propagation and processing methods to maximize the environmental, economic and social benefits. The development of the full potential of miscanthus through OPTIMISC will contribute to Europes transition to a sustainable biobased economy.

Following the EC SET-Plan Education and Training Roadmap, the concept of this proposal is to develop a joint PhD programme between universities and research centres, on the topic of Thermal Energy Storage (TES). The goal of INPATH-TES is to create a network of universities and research institutes to implement a joint PhD programme on TES technologies. The final result of such a network is to educate professionals on these technologies for the European research and industry institutions. The consortium includes 14 universities that will implement the joint PhD programme, two research institutions (AIT and PROMES-CNRS), three companies and two SME (Arcelik, Abengoa Solar NT, KIC InnoEnergy, UFP and LAIF), that will cooperate in defining the programme and in its implementation and deployment. The specific objectives of the project will lead to the qualification of professionals for the European research and industry institutions, bringing Europe to continue being leaders in these technologies. The partners in the proposal will be the core of a future larger network of excellent R&D institutions, and industries for co-funding and industrial placement, sharing infrastructure capacities, and enhancing mobility of students. The overall approach of the project involves a work plan divided in six work packages, being either coordination or support activities. Coordination activities: WP1 Management and coordination; WP3 Developing, maintaining and updating a PhD programme in TES; and WP4 Implementation of the PhD programme in TES. Support activities: WP2 External communication and dissemination; WP5 Stakeholder involvement and extension of partnerships; and WP6 Framework for monitoring and evaluation of INPATH-TES as well as IPR and regulatory issues.

ROOTOPOWER aims to develop a multidisciplinary suite of new tools targeted to the root system to enhance agronomic stability and sustainability of dicotyledonous crops under multiple and combined abiotic stresses: salinity, water stress, soil compaction and low fertilizer (N, P, K) input. Central to our approach is the use of tomato as a model species since it can be very easily grafted (usual commercial practise). This surgical technique allows precise assessment of the effect of altering root traits on crop performance independently of any shoot traits, since the scion (shoot) is constant. This project will analyze and exploit the natural genetic variability existing in a recombinant inbred line population (RIL) from a cross between Solanum lycopersicum and S. pimpinellifolium and other selected mutants and functional lines (used as rootstocks) for their performance under multiple abiotic stresses and for their biotic interaction with natural soil microorganisms (mycorrhiza and rhizobacteria). The key research challenges are: (i) to identify stress-resistant root systems and rhizosphere microorganisms (and their synergisms) for enhanced resistance to individual and combined abiotic stresses; and (ii) to understanding the underlying genetic and physiological mechanisms, which are potentially fundamental to all crops, and readily exploited in dicotyledonous crops. This project will first identify genetic variation and quantitative trait loci (QTL) that allow tomato roots to confer crop resistance to a range of abiotic stresses, alone or in association with arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) and/or plant growth promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR). This approach will establish the physiological and signalling processes conferred by key QTLs, and identify candidates for the causative genes by obtaining near isogenic lines (NILs) for selected QTLs. The validity of the knowledge generated will be confirmed in tomato and other species within the timeframe of the project.


Artificial neural networks (ANNs) were used to estimate solar radiation in Turkey (26-45°E, 36-42°N) using geographical and satellite-estimated data. In order to train the Generalized regression neural network (GRNN) geographical and satellite-estimated data for the period from January 2002 to December 2002 from 19 stations spread over Turkey were used in training (ten stations) and testing (nine stations) data. Latitude, longitude, altitude, surface emissivity for e{open}4, surface emissivity for e{open}5, and land surface temperature are used in the input layer of the network. Solar radiation is the output. Root Mean Square Error (RMSE) and correlation coefficient (R2) between the estimated and measured values for monthly mean daily sum with ANN values have been found as 0.1630 MJ/m2 and 95.34% (training stations), 0.3200 MJ/m2 and 93.41% (testing stations), respectively. Since these results are good enough it was concluded that the developed GRNN tool can be used to predict the solar radiation in Turkey. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd.

Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is a hepatotrophic and lymphotrophic virus and is a global health problem. Cirrhosis and hepatocellular cancer are the most common complications of HCV. Association between HCV and B cell non-Hodgkin lymphomas (B-NHL) has been shown in epidemiological studies in the last 20 years. High prevalence of HCV infection among patients with NHL has been reported in the early 1990s by Ferri in Italy and this association has been confirmed in later studies. Geographically, HCV related NHL is highly variable and chronic rather than cleared HCV infection is required for lymphomagenesis. Although anti-HCV antibody test is the most commonly used technique in epidemiological studies, HCV-RNA is more useful test to detect the association between HCV and NHL. The optimal management of HCV related NHL is not clear. However, anti-viral treatment may be sufficient for cases with low grade and/or asymptomatic lymphomas, while immuno-chemotherapy is necessary, in spite of probable hepatic toxicity, in cases with high grade lymphomas. © 2014 Elsevier Ireland Ltd.


Free vibration analysis of plates made of functionally graded materials and resting on elastic foundation is presented by taking into account the effect of transverse shear deformations. The foundation is described by the Pasternak (two-parameter) model. The material properties of the plate are assumed to vary continuously in the thickness direction by a simple power law distribution in terms of the volume fractions of the constituents. The formulation is based on a higher order hyperbolic shear deformation theory. The equation of motion for thick functionally graded plates is obtained through the Hamilton's principle. The closed form solutions are obtained by using Navier technique and then fundamental frequencies are found by solving the results of eigenvalue problems. Accuracy of the present formulation is shown by comparing the results of numerical examples with the ones available in literature. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.


The potential effect of indigenous and selected mycorrhizal fungal inoculation and phosphorus (P) treatment on plant growth, yield, root infection and inoculation effectiveness (IE) were tested with and without methyl bromide (MBr) for three successive years under field conditions. In 1997-1999, twelve plant species were used as host plants in a Menzilat soil series (Typic Xerofluvents) in the Mediterranean coastal region of Turkey. Compared to non-inoculated control plants, mycorrhizal inoculation increased yield in some years, but not in others. The mycorrhizal inoculum increased the root colonization of garlic, horsebean, soybean, chickpea, melon, watermelon, cucumber, maize, cotton, pepper, eggplant and tomato plants compared with the non-inoculated treatments. Compared to fumigation, plant roots grown in non-fumigated soil and successfully infected by indigenous mycorrhiza, resulted with better plant growth. Plant species belonging to the Solanaceae, Leguminosae, and Cucurbitaceae showed high responses to the mycorrhizal inoculation effectiveness under both fumigated and non-fumigated soil conditions. In general, IE was higher under low P supply than under high P supply. The effects of mycorrhizal inoculation on plant P and Zn concentrations were determined: mycorrhiza-inoculated plants had a higher nutrient content than non-inoculated plants, and this was most pronounced under fumigated soil conditions. After 3 years of field experiments, it has been concluded that for (seeded) field crops, soil and plant management systems make a great contribution to indigenous mycorrhiza to improve plant development. Whereas for horticultural plants, on the other hand, (plants transplanted into the field as seedlings), mycorrhizal inoculation makes it easy to use for large agricultural areas compared with the non-inoculated plants. It can be suggested to the farmers that arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus inoculated seedlings can be used under field conditions for high yield and quality. © 2011 Elsevier B.V.


Inhibiting effect of 4,6-diamino-2-pyrimidinethiol (4D2P) on mild steel corrosion (MS) in 0.1. M HCl solution was investigated by linear polarization resistance, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy and potentiodynamic measurements in the presence of different concentrations of 4D2P ranging from 10.0. mM to 0.5. mM. The effect of 4D2P on the MS corrosion was also studied by scanning electron microscopy and quantum chemical calculations. The adsorption of 4D2P on the MS surface was well described by the Langmuir adsorption model. The inhibition mechanism was determined by potential of zero charge measurements and some electronic parameters. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd.

The diagnosis of Sweet's syndrome rests on a combination of clinical symptoms and characteristic physical and pathologic features. Patients typically have fever and tender erythematous skin lesions (papules, nodules, or plaques). Neutrophilia, high levels of serum inflammatory markers, and diffuse mature neutrophil infiltration localized to the upper dermis are the most important findings. Sweet's syndrome was first described by Robert Sweet in 1964, whose sentinel paper described 8 women with fever, leukocytosis, and erythematous plaques infiltrated by neutrophils. Subsequently, extracutaneous sites were included in the diagnosis. This review of publications between 1964 and April 2012 found 1683 reports of Sweet's syndrome of which only 8 were published between 1964 and 1969, after which the number of the papers grew by decades to 59, 228, 459 and 692. With more articles, there are more reports of malignancy-associated Sweet's syndrome. This may reflect the awareness by physicians of the disease and of the drugs which may cause it. There is considerable overlap in the constitutional findings of Sweet's syndrome and malignant disorders. It is crucial that the possibility of Sweet's syndrome be included in a hematologist or oncologist's differential diagnosis of fever and skin lesions. © 2012 Elsevier Ireland Ltd.
