Questions related to DSM
Hello I am needing some help in identifying the organisms/bacteria on my plates.
Backstory; this is for a project at uni to identify and research bacteria found in food. I used dog food, let it spoil and grew many plates. From a HB plate I subcultured two colonies, same as for CLED, on plain nutrient agar. I grew two generations and have gram stained from these. Most have died now but still trying to identify.
The bacteria at first I thought bacillus sp., but the following week they had transformed to something I have not observed before. I still have a suspicion it is, but I am not getting any hits from MALDI. There is also a strange chains of something, I am not sure if it is bacteria, but I am so curious and no one is able to identify.
Any input is much appreciated
MALDI hits: Pseudomonas orientalis CIP 105540T HAM; Klebsiella oxvtoca ATCC 700324 THL; Aeromonas molluscorum 848T DSM; Sphingomonas paucimobilis B341 UFL
Deep Soil Mixing requires a certain liquidity for injecting into soil. What is the minimum requirement of it?
LRF slag & fly ash will be used as Binder instead of using cement. Sodium Silicate, Sodium Hydroxide will be used as activator.
I work on the drying up of forest trees. My data source is RGB images of drones. I processed the images in Agisoft software. Unfortunately, the drought of the trees in the digital model of the canopy surface is not well made.
I did not produce textures in image processing. Is this step necessary to prepare DSM or DEM?
Do you have any comments or suggestions for improving the digital level model?
(The altitude of the drone is 100 meters and the overlap is 80%).
Demand Side Management is one of the key tools in smart grids. It is aimed to control and manipulate of the demand by DSM. Demand response programs in DSM provide an option to control and manage the demands via incentives or electricity price. Which performance indices are used in DSM and demand response programs in order to manage the demand? Also, which performance indices are used in DSM in order to evaluate the effectiveness of the DSM?
I recently took pictures at a height of 100 meters above the ground. But when processing with Agisoft software, part of my study area is lower than other areas (the study area is flat). What could be the reason?
I am looking for a tutorial for an Excel plugin designed by MIT University to draw a Design Structural Matrix(DSM). This code based on C can be run as an add-on in Office Excel software that allows the user to model up to 100 parts. I will be thankful if you have any training or information on how to work with this plugin, help me.
I used to work with software DSMMatrix v1.8 to draw the Design Structural Matrix(DSM) in my projects, but now I am looking for better and more powerful software to draw the design structure matrix. The main problem is the limited part entry in DSMMatrix v1.8.
Which method is being used for interpolation in DSM generation using Pix4D Mapper, Metashape and Inpho UASMaster?
Are most people, who score high on neuroticism, score high on covert/ vulnerable/ hypersensitive narcissism, too?
I am hoping someone can inform me as to how the SCID-5-CV is scored? I have been looking online but can't find too much without purchasing handbooks from the DSM.
I am looking at hypomania symptoms in patients with bipolar disorder and want to know if I can use the SCID to measure hypomania symptoms between time points (e.g. at baseline, 6 months, 12 months etc). As such, I want to be able to determine episodes, duration, severity etc. from one time point to the next. Moreover, I would like this to be in a way that is quantifiable, for statistical analysis.
Can the SCID-5-CV allow for this? Or alternatively, is there a more appropriate measure?
In order to fulfill criteria for Somatic symtom disorder (DSM 5) a patient needs to be preoccupied with symtoms or their health. Reasonably a symtom like pain does make you preoccupied to some degree. So how have researchers tried to operationalize "preoccupation"?
Quarantine fatigue is not uncommon during this period. Can we include it under a disorder category in ICD or DSM? Is it an adjustment disorder?
I've used Agisoft Metashape, and the weeding I.e. the removal of trees and the vegetation is coumbersome. So I need another software that will give a better model. I'm working on Pix4D though. Thanks

I have a Bacillus cereus strain that never sporulates in DSM (Difco Sporulation Media) and it does not usually sporulate either in LB media, but sometimes when I recover an O/N culture and I heat it at 80ºC 10min, I see several colonies that correspond to spores.
My question is... why sometimes I recover spores in LB media and other times none?
We use polyamide 6 / formic acid solutions for electrospinning in the lab. When the prepared dope is aged over 3-5 days, it gets to a gel like state with heavy precipitation. When left longer, it almost completely solidifies. This happens in closed volumes, i.e. in jars with tightly closed lids, so we left out the possibility of solvent evaporation. When using different types and brands(BASF & DSM) of PA6, the curing time changes.
Do you know any mechanism that would cause PA6/FA solution to cure/cross-link/precipitate?
(I was inspired by a post I just saw)
What books are recommended for newer Master's level clinicians (or perhaps PhD)?
So far I've got:

I am undertaking a review of depression in a specific population and the majority of the research studies included use a questionnaire to assess for depression symptoms. When writing up the review is it acceptable in a academic paper to describe the “prevalence” of depressive symptom? are there examples of papers where the authors defend the use of the term “prevalence” when discussing symptoms of depression. Are there definitions of “prevalence“ that can be used to justify using the term “prevalence” for symptoms of depression and not a clinical diagnosis as per the DSM V?
An Unmanned Aerial Veichle (UAV) based survey is being conducted for an area which is more or less a flat terrain type. The post processing of the UAV images results into a digital elevation map which shows the height of buildings along with the surrounding agricultural areas.
So, could anyone please suggest the procedure for separation of the surface heights from the raster file to create the actual elevation of the region?
Thank you in advance
I am designing a roof trapezoidal roof profile with both longitudinal and transverse stiffeners. I am looking for related solved problems/design guidelines particular to Direct Strength Method as I am new to this method.
To the microbiologists out there:
I'd like to measure total bacterial/fungal load in clinical samples by qPCR with published primers+ probes targeting the bacterial 16S/fungal 18SRNA gene. For standardization I'm going to create a plasmid standard curves with the PCR product of DNA from pure cultures
For the determination of the molecular weight of one copy, I need the sequence or at least exact length of the area between the primers. However, I cannot find the genome of the strains I'm working with, might be due to lack of knowledge about nomenclature or because it's not published so far?.
--> Do different strains of e.g. E coli or other microorganisms differ in sequence in the 16S/18S rDNA region? Or could I just use the sequence of another strain accessible via ncbi? Or do I necessarily have to sequence if I cannot find the sequence in the internet?
I work with:
- Candida albicans DSM 1386 (https://www.dsmz.de/collection/catalogue/details/culture/dsm-1386)
- Aspergillus fumigatus DSM 819 (https://www.dsmz.de/collection/catalogue/details/culture/DSM-819)
- common E. coli, K12, DH5alpha, thyA-
Thanks a lot!
The focus would be to potentially use DSM to explore the dependencies and interactions between subsystems, where a subsystem may have several technology options available for Product Design/Development (PD).
Since you set up the research project, have you found that your culture ZM1 degrades polystyrene?
In general, you to deposit the culture to a culture collection center such as ATCC, DSM before you publish your results.
Ground improvement methods such as Deep Soil Mixing (DSM) and Jet Grouting (JG) are used for liquefaction mitigation. They reinforce the ground, thereby reducing the cyclic stress ratios (CSRs) induced in the soil. Boulanger et al. CSR reduction factor curves are developed for soil-cement "grid" reinforcement.
I want to use discrete soil-cement "columns" for liquefaction mitigation. Is there any design criteria for soil-cement columns?
Hi. I am a MPhil student at Amity University, Noida, India. I am studying the changes in prevalence rates in child onset schizophrenia after the DSM -5 increased the criteria for diagnosis from "1 to 2".
If you have any researches that have studied this, please share.
We are looking for a "fast" (màx. 1 hour) diagnostic tool for mental health disorders in children and adolescence. We are developing a project with children and adolescences from several hospitals and we need a unique, valid, easy and fast tool to make a diagnosis (following DSM-V or ICD10). Which is the most used tool in research? Can anyone help us? Many thanks in advance.
I have referenced to some papers which extracted DEM and DSM based on LIDAR data. Then HRSI was fused with Lidar data. is this method effective? Are there other effective methods?
The authors of DSM-5 chapter on intellectual disability made a significant error (typo!?) in reporting the prevalence of intellectual disability. Actually, subheading PREVALENCE in DSM 5 consists of only two sentences:
Intellectual disability has an overall general population prevalence of approximately 1% and prevalence rates vary by age. Prevalence for severe intellectual disability is approximately 6 per 1000.
So, it means that there are 10 people with intellectual disability (all levels of ID) on 1000 people. According to DSM-5, 6 out of these 10 people are people with severe intellectual disability. However, most studies point that out of all people with ID, the majority of them (85%) have mild ID. I think this needs to be corrected!
I'm looking for DTM or DSM with geometrical resolution below 10 meters for pixel of Dead Sea region (Israel). Priority for free information sources but also ready to pay for any appropriate data.
I heard that Spot-5 DTM should be free to download but I can't find the sources.
If you know any sources for free DTM or by payment, please share.
Thanks in advance
I have a dense point cloud (.Las) which is consist of 150 million points and I want to create a Raster file (i.e., DSM) from it. The question is: which software can do it? I used the LASTools, ArcGIS and TerraSolid, however; none of them could handle such a big file.
Thank you in advance,
I am having WorldView-2 and WorldView-3 imagery (includes SWIR bands) of dense urban areas. I want to extract building footprints (2D and 3D) of very complex buildings. For 3D, I have DSM.
Hi, everyone currently I am working on optimization for demand side management (DSM) problems. So, I want to implement my proposed DSM scheme in the micro-grid environment. For that, I need standard micro-grid system data. Please suggest me how can I get that standard system data or any sample data. I am grateful to you if you help in this.
1. The soil improvement technique Deep Soil Mixing (DSM) is very common presently. How do we model the DSM columns of a given site in PLAXIS?
2. While liquefaction risk is present after doing analysis in Plaxis 2D, what measures can be taken to prevent liquefaction ? and can those measures be modelled/applied in Plaxis 2D?
I just received a LiDAR dataset consisting in five different folders. I am reporting the label of those folder in case there is a standard nomenclature: c_1, c_2, c_3 ,c_4 and c_5.
All the datasets cover the same area. Provided that c_1 represents the DTM (floating) and c_2 represents the DSM (floating), the issue I have is identifying the remaining three layers, and specifically:
- c_3 has a 'unsigned integer' pixel type and a classification range from 0 to 255, maybe they are co-surface point groups?
- c_4 has a 'unsigned integer' pixel type with just 4 groups under the value 'Area'
-c_5 is almost identical to c_1 (the DTM) with slightly different values.
Any help on the meaning of all these layers??
Thanks anyone in advance.
Hi, I am curently doing my research on residential demand side management (DSM). I want to analyse the DSM concept with renewable sources. For that I required sample data of residential solar PV power generation or wind turbine power generation. I am very thankful for anybody to help in this.
Satellite image orthorectification of VHRS data(GSD<0.5m) is challenging in undulating terrain especially hilly areas. And it is known that the DSM available like Alosworl3D(30m posting), Carto DEM(10m posting), ACE2DEM(90m posting), etc., though may be accurate are not directly usable because the hill tops and valleys may not accurately register with the GCPs available.
In such scenario, do we need to go for LIDAR based elevation values which is a costly affair? Or is it suggested to use stereo pair which is also a costly affair?
What are the methods in practice that are in use and are found to be cost effective and accurate inorder to get orthorectified imagery that could be used for urban utility mapping using VHRS satellite imagery(GSD<0.5cm)?
I would like to know if the MINI neuropsychiatric interview for DSM V is available in Spanish, because we would like to use it in a RCT we are actually carrying out.
Looking for references on research on various methods (DSM,etc) for interface management of product interfaces during design and development. I am particularly looking for methods used in automotive industry. The interest is more on the system / sub-subsystem / elemental level interfaces rather than organizational.
Practically, in Direct load control (DLC) demand response programs, the utility has full control over the registered loads? The consumer-side has no control at all?
I am planning a study where I am comparing categorical vs. dimensional predictors of success in therapy. I am using a dimensional measurement tool to predict treatment outcome and am unsure how to operationalize DSM diagnoses as the other predictor.
How might I do this?
We have created high resolution DSM using LPS software but not getting the surface smooth while checking in vertical profile graph. It is showing so much undulation, even tried lot of method to smooth the surface but still not getting satisfactory output.
I have gone through many journal, many experts are saying that it can possible to generate 2 meter DEM from high resolution stereo pair image. But in my case, undulation is coming in water body, road, railway track every where...
Please suggest a software or process to generate accurate DSM without undulation...For railway track simulation, undulation is not at all acceptable...
Hello everyone, I am currently doing some research about DSM approaches. It would be very interesting to find some studies which compared the energy savings of traditional refurbishment alternatives in buildings (increasing wall insulation, changing glazing elements, ventilation,..) with the energy savings of implementing DSM or home automations such as shading controls or smart lighting, thermostats, appliances, plugs or meters in the same buildings. So far I’ve not been able to find such a study, so any help would be much appreciated. Thank you in advance!
We're looking for it several times and still there's no result related to it. We will be needing it for our research paper. Thank you.
Can someone recommend me a validated instrument for proxy rating of mental illness which is including all ICD-10 or DSM main categories?
I am planning to do a psychological autopsy and from what I have read so far in previous studies it seems like the SKID is used quite often for post mortem diagnosis of mental illness. Unfortunately the SKID is not validated for ratings by proxy and many of the interview questions can hardly be answered accurately by people who knew the deceased.
I am looking for a source to purchase commercial volumes of 1,4-butanediol and adipic acid made from renewable raw materials.
What I found out is that for biobased adipic acid, DSM and Rennovia are working on it, and for biobased BDO, BioAmber and Novamont.
Are there any other suppliers who have reached or will soon reach maturity of their production process? The application of the substances is as monomers for a biobased plastics material with food contact approval.
Endogenous is in DSM - I am interested to find out about the psychological impact of having this diagnosis, is there correlation to brain or body? What interventions are available? Any research in relation to this diagnosis.
Now i am generating a DSM for Hydrodynamic Modelling so need what is RPC and what is important RPC for Cartosat-1 data.
I've recently been studying the issue of psychomotor retardation (PMR) as a symptom of depression. It seems that DSM criteria for depression include at least two other items which seem to duplicate important features of this. Both 'fatigue or loss of energy' and 'diminished ability to think or concentrate, or more indecisiveness' are both well documented elements of PMR, in which case the conflation of these items might artificially inflate the rating of depression by these criteria, and exaggerate the role that PMR symptomatology has to play.
Is this duplication and overlap of the features of depression taken into account by psychiatrists making a diagnosis of depression, or is the importance of PMR deemed high enough to warrant its common features, such as difficulty in concentrating and fatigue being - in effect - 'counted twice'?
Hi, I’m looking for following microorganisms, maybe someone can share?:
Elizabethkingia meningoseptica (Chryseobacterium meningosepticum)
Acetobacter aceti NBRC 14818, Gene: Abac_015_033
Acidobacterium capsulatum (strain ATCC 51196 / DSM 11244 / JCM 7670 / NBRC 15755 / NCIMB 13165 / 161)
Acidiphilium cryptum (strain JF-5)
Rhizoctonia solani 123EThanatephorus cucumeris (strain AG1-IB / isolate 7/3/14) (Lettuce bottom rot fungus) (Rhizoctonia solani)
I'm interested in finding a 30 meter DSM from SRTM with the hope of creating a 30 meter canopy height model. I know that it can be done because the following studies have:
However, I can't for the life of me find DSMs, only DEMs. Does anyone have any suggestions for where to look online? Or do I need to contact JPL or some other agency directly? I'm also entertaining the idea of ASTER, but am finding those data to be equally challenging to locate.
What software you use to prepare orthophotomaps, DTM, DSM, point cloud or 3d model with drones? I've used: Pix4D and APS.
There are several treatments that are most often used to manage BPD.
Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is a serious mental illness marked by unstable moods, behavior, and relationships. In 1980, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual for Mental Disorders, Third Edition (DSM-III) listed BPD as a diagnosable illness for the first time. Most psychiatrists and other mental health professionals use the DSM to diagnose mental illnesses.
If definition of mental illness changes so that false positive / negative rates change, it may influence efficacy of drug trials, right?
Recently, I 've worked with transformation of B. megaterium DSM 319. I've tried to apply protoplast transformation method and electroporation, but none gave me a good result. I am very expected of your help. If you have experience or any information about it. Thanks...
The DSM-5, published in May 2013, finally included a section on Addictive Disorders, however the general concept of "addiction" is not to be found in the current DSM. It's admittedly hard to define. Note that there is also no "Substance Use Disorder - Generalized", rather the substances are enumerated, e.g. Dx 304.xx Opioid Use Disorder, etc. I know the APA can get political as it has real impact in terms of reimbursement, disability, and CMS coverage, especially with the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act kicking in this year. I'm wondering if any international bodies (WHO, etc) have published a DEFINITION of addiction or even of "substance use disorder", or if anyone has tried to define the condition with specificity in the academic literature. I find it interesting that we, in the US, now have a law forcing payors to treat "addiction" as any other disease, yet we have no consensus medical definition of "addiction", or at least one that I can find. Are addictive disorders a type of addiction? (I'm not joking, but asking for accurate Dx purposes -- I'm wondering if someone has really thought this through or published on the subject.)
Many of the diagnostic subtypes have been removed from DSM-5. Does this allow clinicians and researchers to better diagnose and treat schizophrenia?
I was told that the section on communication was merged with the section on social interaction in the DSM V because research had shown these impairments to co-occur often. Is this true? Or not? Where might I find some research done by/for the APA which influenced this decision to merge? I would really appreciate some input here.
I am looking at the reliability of the DSM-5 criteria and it would be very useful to know if study subjects who are included in studies under DSM-IV or DSM-5 criteria have differences in the severity of their depressive syndrome by other measures.
I can imagine given the broadening of the criteria in DSM-5 that a subject will satisfy the operationalised definition for depression with a relatively lower HAM-D (or similar rating scale) than a patient who satisfies the DSM-IV criteria.
I'm working in Digital Surface Models (DSM) generation with Photoscan from UAV images. I wonder if anybody knows a guide for image selection for these issues. My bigger concerns are optimizing computational cost (adequate number of images for accurate DSM generation), and how the image constrast affects the performance of Photoscan and other similar softwares.
Thanks in advance.
CDD was removed, along with Rett's Syndrome, from the new DSM (V). Rett's was removed because APA decided it was actually a genetic disorder based on recent research findings. No explanation was given (that I can find) for the removal of CDD. Does anyone know why, or whether it's now elsewhere in the DSM?
Since negative bodily sensations, as subjective phenomena, can be observed by listening to the patients’ descriptions, systematic attention to the sensations means a distinct re-evaluation of our receptive attitude as the basis for a reliable diagnosis. Psychodynamics is essential in this context.
However, in practice it is sometimes very difficult to make a satisfactory classification using the currently valid International Classification of Mental and Behavioural Disorders (ICD 10-11).
The new edition of Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) will give an opportunity to reflect systematically and name the flaws of these classifications.
A guiding principle emerged, which allows to identify and bundle the points in need of amendment clearly: the diagnostic significance of the subjective bodily symptoms, the „body’s complaints“, which in my opinion are better to unterstand than all the “somatoform disorders”. The DSM-5 " Somatic Symptom Disorders" promise a certain progress, too. What is your experience resp. first impression?
I've been thinking a lot lately about the overlap between synesthesia and schizophrenia as some characteristics of the two are quite similar (hyper-associative thinking, hypersensitivity, etc.). I'm aware that synesthesia is not a mental disorder but reading through case reports of patients with diagnosed schizophrenia, several of them also mention synesthetic experiences.
For example, when looking at the two conditions, the following research findings suggest to me a certain correlation, proneness, or similarity between the two:
- synesthetes who experience colour sensations in response to colour-neutral stimuli show increased positive and disorganized schizotypy (http://discovery.ucl.ac.uk/1314590/1/1314590.pdf)
- synesthetes are more susceptible to mental disorders (http://archpsyc.jamanetwork.com/article.aspx?articleid=491098, http://hms.harvard.edu/news/harvard-medicine/uncommon-sense)
- various links between creativity and synesthesia (http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1207/s15326934crj1001_1#.U5lcKvmSzfI), creativity and schizophrenia (http://scholar.google.de/scholar?q=schizophrenia+creativity&btnG=&hl=en&as_sdt=0%2C5&as_vis=1)
- increased intensity of perceptual experiences or hypersensitivity can be used as in indicator of schizophrenia
- strong visual imagery (http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1053810007000566)
Other aspects that might indicate a link between the two are vivid imagination and strong ability to form mental images/sounds/sensations/etc., increased daydreaming, etc.
Does anyone know of other similarities between the two (particularly with regard to brain structure & function) and to what extent synesthesia can become pathological?
