PRESENT RESEARCH SITUATIONS AND FUTURE PROSPECTS ON BIOMIMETIC ROBOT FISH 

As mankind steps into the 21st century, the exploration of the ocean also enters a new phase. In the recent decades, the research on biomimetic robot fish has attracted scientific communities’ attention increasingly. With its character of high flexibility and intelligence, biomimetic robot fish have become one of the research focuses in the field of underwater robots in ecent years. This paper mainly describes the classification of propulsion modes and the corresponding characteristics, the

A REVIEW OF ARTIFICIAL FISH SWARM OPTIMIZATION METHODS AND APPLICATIONS

The Swarm Intelligence is a new and modern method employed in optimization problems. The Swarm Intelligence method is based on the en masse movement of living animals like birds, fishes, ants and other social animals. Migration, seeking for food and fighting with enemies are social behaviors of animals. Optimization principle is seen in these animals. The Artificial Fish Swarm Optimization (AFSA) method is one of the Swarm Intelligence approaches that works based on the population and

Comparison of PCR, Fluorescent in Situ Hybridization and Blood Cultures for Detection of Bacteremia in Children and Adolescents During Antibiotic Therapy

carried out in standard automated systems. Subsequently, FISH (Fluorescent In-Situ Hybridization) and nested multiplex-real-time-PCR (PCR) were performed. Blood cultures, FISH and PCR yielded positive results in 18%, 39.1%, and 71.7% of samples, respectively. Significant differences were found between the results obtained through culture before and after induction of antibiotherapy: 25.5% vs. 9.7%. There was no significant difference in FISH and PCR results in relation to antibiotics. The three

Detection of Acinetobacter spp. in Blood Cultures by an Improved Fluorescent in Situ Hybridization Assay

Fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) allows rapid detection of microorganisms. We aimed (i) to evaluate the sensitivity and specificity of FISH for the detection of Acinetobacter spp. in blood culture specimens and (ii) to test the simultaneous application of two genus-specific probes labeled with the same fluorochrome to increase the fluorescent signal intensity and improve the detection of Acinetobacter spp. Three hundred and twenty blood culture specimens were tested via both the

PATHOGENICITY OF ENVIRONMENTAL CHLAMYDIAE FOR HUMANS AND ANIMALS

Parilichlamydiaceae. These bacteria are considered the infectious factors of zoonoses due to the fact that they can be found among pets and livestock such as cats, guinea pigs, sheep, cattle, and even fish. Many of these animals also suffer from diseases caused by these bacteria. In this study, while characterizing environmental chlamydiae, special attention has been paid to illnesses of the respiratory tract caused by Simkania negevensis, and to the abortions among people and ruminants caused by Waddlia

Pathogenic Potential of Fresh, Frozen, and Thermally Treated Anisakis spp. Type II (L3) (Nematoda: Anisakidae) after Oral Inoculation into Wistar Rats: A Histopathological Study

potentially zoonotic nematodes among edible fishes in Egypt, there are few immunological and molecular studies investigating the epidemiology of these parasites. Anisakidosis, a human infection with nematodes of the family Anisakidae, is caused most commonly by Anisakis spp. In the present study, seventy specimens of the European seabass Dicentrarchus labrax commercialized in Alexandria city along the Mediterranean Sea were acquired during the period from July to December, 2015. Fish were necropsied and

, including the most infamous pandemic of the Spanish influenza. It took place in the years 1918–1919 and is thought to have been responsible for the death toll of as many as 100 million people. The family also includes Isavirus, responsible for fish anaemia, Quaranjavirus and Thogotovirus, among which there also species causing diseases in humans. For example, a human infection with the Bourbon virus was diagnosed only once, in 2014. These viruses are much more rare then influenza viruse and also

VARIATIONAL APPROXIMATIONS FOR SELECTING HIERARCHICAL MODELS OF CIRCULAR DATA IN A SMALL AREA ESTIMATION APPLICATION

We consider hierarchical regression models for circular data using the projected normal distribution, applied in the development of weights for the Access Point Angler Intercept Survey, a recreational angling survey conducted by the US National Marine Fisheries Service. Weighted estimates of recreational fish catch are used in stock assessments and fisheries regulation. The construction of the survey weights requires the distribution of daily departure times of anglers from fishing sites

Purification, Characterization and Inhibition of Alanine Racemase from a Pathogenic Strain of Streptococcus iniae

Introduction Streptococcus iniae is a Gram-positive and most commonly reported Streptococcal pathogen of fish responsible for high economic loses of aquaculture industries around the world. The zoonotic bacteria was also reported to cause bacteremia, cellulitis, meningitis, and osteomyelitis in human (Guo et al. 2018; Tavares et al. 2018). Vaccines and antibiotics were currently employed for minimizing the impact of the disease. However, recent studies revealed that the bacteria has so far

De novo transcriptome sequencing and analysis of Anisakis pegreffii (Nematoda: Anisakidae) third-stage and fourth stage larvae

The family Anisakidae comprises the nematode species whose adult stages can be found in aquatic animals, while the third stage larvae (L3) generally exist in the body cavity, visceral organs and muscles of various fish and squid species. Although humans are not the final hosts of these nematodes, the larval forms of anisakid nematodes, particularly those of the genera Anisakis and Pseudoterranova are known to be associated with human infection by the ingestion of raw or undercooked fish or
