How environmental studies programs and the ESA 4DEE framework can help recruit diverse students into the environmental workforce

Carmen Cid, Kathleen Shea & Janet Macfall
The new Ecological Society of America 4 dimensional curricular framework (4DEE) elevates the human dimension of environmental interactions, and focuses on aligning undergraduate ecology education with career skills needed in today's environmental workforce. Environmental Studies programs have traditionally integrated the social and natural sciences in their curriculum and showcase experiential learning that addresses community environmental issues. Both the ESA 4DEE and Environmental Studies programs follow the same process in making environmental knowledge connect with community...

Enhancing the HTA through Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis

Jack Dowie & Mette Kjer Kaltoft
The poster explores and illustrates the ways in which the technique of Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis (MCDA) can contribute to, and typically enhance, a Health Technology Assessment. It is shown how the four perspectives of HTA (technology, patient, organisation and economy) can be incorporated in a Multi-Criteria Decision Analysis (MCDA) framework through appropriate specification of the criteria and supporting evidence. This is best accomplished by taking a patient-focused view of the technology concerned and MCDA is...

Mitochondrial genome of Sitka spruce assembled using chromium reads

Shaun D Jackman, Benjamin P Vandervalk, René L Warren, Hamid Mohamadi, Justin Chu, Sarah Yeo, Lauren Coombe, Stephen Pleasance, Robin J Coope, Joerg Bohlmann, Steven JM Jones & İnanç Birol
Long-read sequencing technologies have greatly improved assembly contiguity, but at a cost roughly ten times that of short-read sequencing technology. For population studies and when sequencing large genomes, such as conifer genomes and other economically important crop species, this cost may be prohibitive. The 10x Genomics Chromium technology generates linked reads from large molecules at a cost comparable to standard short-read sequencing technologies. Whereas paired-end sequencing gives two reads from a small DNA fragment, Chromium...

In vitro antimicrobial potential of medicinal plants from East Kalimantan against Streptococcus sobrinus and Prophyromonas gingivalis

Saat Egra, Tohru Mitsunaga & Harlinda Kuspradini
Introduction: There are many traditional knowledge practices related to natural fibers in Indonesia. Indonesia has a lot of traditional tribes, every tribe also has an own treat toward oral pathogenic. Almost all of their medicinal resources derive from natural products. Natural products have long been implemented as alternative health care treatment and in the discovery of modern drugs. Commonly, the local tribes use plants as general functions against diseases such as scabies, wounds, fever, swollen...
