Hello, everyone! My name is Xu Yongqian, and you can call me Eric. My work focus on the coral microbiome. Corals are marine invertebrates that form close associations with a wide diversity of microorganisms, including photoautotrophic dinoflagellates(Symbiodiniaceae), protozoa, fungi, bacteria, archaea, and viruses. especially for zooxanthella and bacteria.
Before that, my main job was to isolate and culture Symbiodiniaceaeand bacteria, and study their ecological function. Recently, I found that few works have been done on coral symbiotic archaea. either because they are far less abundant and diverse in coral symbionts than bacteria, or because they are difficult to cultivate.
I know it's very hard, but I still want to try to isolate archaea from coral. I have no experience in cultivating archaea. Therefore, I would like to ask about the culture medium and methods of archaea. Besides, I also want to know the extraction methods of archaea DNA.
In a word, any experience, paper, scholars or other information is welcome. And if you have any ideas, please contact me. My email is Yongqian_Xu@outlook.com

Hello all researchers
I am going to develop and prepare a PhD research proposal and am interested in designing experimental research. Due to my research design, the first study will focus on qualitative (interview) to explore variables, and connecting with the second study will focus on quantitative by using the first study variables as independent variables to find an effect on dependent variables. As a quantitative step, I will give the questionnaire to people who have been using Instagram for more than a year (pre-stage). Can I select samples from the pre-stage to do a focus group if I want to study them deeply via the post-stage to see their post-experience with them?
For example,
Study 1: qualitative to explore variables
Study 2: quantitative to find an effect using the SEM model (pre-stage). The outcome will be on behavior intention. Then, for the post-stage, I will conduct qualitative research as a focus group to extend the outcome as post-experience (after using).
Are they involved in the experimental research design?

Any practical tips to share?
Thank you!
Tijana
Relevant answer
Answer
Hello!
Peptides quantification is a whole subject, hard to summarize in 2 lines.
You will have pre-analytical issues because of a lack of stability, adsorption, matrix effect, problems with the LOQ...
I recommend to read a lot about your peptide and its physical, chemical and biological properties. Then, try to understand how it behaves when you work with it (adsorption, degradation, solubilization...), and understand what is the effects caused by the matrix you are using (plasma, urine, serum, etc.).
Finaly, you can try to extract your peptide by precipitation, solid-phase extraction, etc. depending on what you have read in the literature.
After that, you will indeed need the standard peptide to prepare the calibration curve, and you will need the internal standard (IS) to correct the areas. Indeed, in LC/MS, we want a ratio between the peptide and its IS to correct the fluctuations caused by the extraction and the instrument.
Maybe, if you ask more precise questions, I can be more specific.
I suggest:

Bringing change in the organization is painful. It hurt the emotions. If academicians want an easy go before retiring themselves then they need not to bother about the strategy of change.

Tenure ship is painful but should be adopted. Head of the institution must be the person to take tough decisions and if it is been taken then it must be supported by others team members.
Committee must be constituted and it should be made responsible and accountable to make tenure or probation. But it should be controlled by the head of the institution. Head of the institution must ensure that constituted committee is having institutions best scholars who have in depth information of institution and about its overall policies and procedures, especially in hiring and promotions criteria.

One example of recent attempts to combine everything is the integration of computer vision and natural language processing (NLP). Both these fields are one of the most actively developing machine learning research areas. Yet, until recently, they have been treated as separate areas without many ways to benefit from each other. It is now, with the expansion of multimedia, researchers have started exploring the possibilities of applying both approaches to achieve one result.

Hi all,
we have been doing quite a few operando Raman analyses of batteries and supercapacitors. We always observe that the signal start to fade as voltage increase to certain levels. Is there any reasonable explanation for that? Is that something consolidated in literature or too trivial?
That is just a focus lost? That really a coincidence with electrolyte stability.
Best regards,
Zanin
Relevant answer
Answer
Hi Hudson,
Raman spectroscopy in general uses probes the local bonding via the Raman shift (there are many books that explain this). When voltage is applied to a battery/supercapacitor material in the presence of an electrolyte, you can have intercalation or double layer capacitance (depending on the type of battery/supercapacitor) of the ions in solution. This addition of ions into the structure inherently changes the local bonding, and changes the corresponding Raman response.
Does this observation occur when the charge is reversed? It also does not help that your image is cropped and not complete...
Good luck!

I have 2 groups that I'm measuring effect of intervention. There is a large variation in SD for the intervention and non intervention. Intervention SD is 74.24 and non-Intervention SD is 63. How this can reflect the Intervention as true predictor vs Non-Intervention? Do I focus on normality? (There is normal distribution between the two) or something else? How to discuss as a limitation? Thanks
Relevant answer
Answer
Hello Mariyana,
I'm not quite clear on what you have. Is it: (a) two groups, one of which received an intervention and one of which did not, and each group was subsequently measured on some relevant variable; or (b) two groups, each measured pre-intervention and post-intervention on some relevant measure? (or something else?)
If (a), then assuming groups were in fact comparable prior to the intervention, the fact that the intervention group has a slightly higher SD than the non-intervention group simply means the impact of the intervention wasn't equal for all participants in the intervention condition. Of course, if groups weren't comparable at the outset, then you simply can't be sure this wasn't merely an a priori difference between groups/batches.
If (b), pretty much the same thing: post-intervention scores are more variable than pre-intervention scores, which implies some persons benefited more from the intervention than did others.
It's not apparent why this might be a study limitation, unless you're worried about a homogeneity of variance assumption for a significance test (as in option "a", above). If that's the case, then you can:
1. Opt for bootstrap/resampling methods to estimate group differences (and the CI for same);
2. Apply an exact/permutation test;
3. Use robust regression model;
4. If it makes sense to do so, try transforming scores on the measure of interest so as to stabilize variances;
5. Use one of the common methods for adjusting/penalizing t-test/anova models for violation of homogeneity, such as: Welch method; Brown-Forsythe method.
Good luck with your work.

Hi everyone. Is it possible to focus a Plane Wave source in a smaller material surface? Look attached image. If I want to focus only a smaller "surface" with a wavefront, how could I do it ?
Why this question ? Because I would like to avoid impedance mismatching with air (thus Z_optic=230 Ohm and Z_air=377 Ohm )
Relevant answer
Answer
Hello,
There are lots of materials available on internet in this topic.
The plane wave excitation source provides you the opportunity to simulate an incident wave from a source located a large distance from the observed object. In combination with far field monitors, the radar cross section (RCS) of a scattered may be calculated.
Please note that the input signal of an excited plane wave is normalized due to the user-defined value of the electric field vector (unit: V/m).
The phase reference location of the plane wave excitation is the origin of the global WCS (0,0,0).
When exciting with a plane wave, several conditions must be satisfied which will be discussed in the following section.
Note: In case of plane wave excitation onto an infinite periodic structure, the unit cell approach is recommended which is accessible via the boundary dialog.
Few papers are attached.

I am trying to figure out the best way to move forward, career-wise. I feel there are two large parts of me that need to be satisfied. The first is my curious nature and enjoyment of knowledge. The second is my desire to help people (directly). I joined a PhD program because of my curiosity, it was basically a default decision/obvious next step. Thinking generally, this PhD program allows me the time to develop the skills to ask and answer scientific questions (ie explore my curiosity): finding the appropriate questions to ask and how to answer them with literature reading, hypothesis generation, experimental design, benchwork, and scientific communication. However, I definitely feel I am missing the other major part of me, the desire to help people. I am currently working on cancer biology, which is very interesting and important, but to me it only helps people indirectly (advance the field, provide theoretical targets, etc.). I feel I am missing a humanitarian, human to human connection. If the action is to explore my curiosity, then the motivation is to help people (I am not sure if this will make sense to anyone). Right now it feels as though I am only able to focus on being curious. I also feel that a PhD will only allow me to be curious and not allow me to help people individually. Please excuse my ignorance of the health field, but I think the inverse of this feeling is encapsulated by being a nurse. Where I would only be helping people and not able to also explore my curiosities as freely. This is why I think I am drawn to a MD/PhD. In my extremely limited mind, and knowledge of both fields (research/healthcare), it feels like having the trade skills of helping/treating people (MD) as well as the skills of exploration/curiosity (PhD) are what will be required for me to approach satisfaction. Granted I have no idea what is available, career-wise, for a PhD that allows direct helping of people (other than mentoring/teaching - which I am also interested in), and this is why I pose this question to everyone. I understand how little I know about the research field, as well as the healthcare field, and I am open to all points of view.

Hi Renata
Before graduating I made a list of terms I was interested in and searched the internet for the top people and labs that might cover these subjects. After closely examining their research, I then sent an email expressing interest in their work and asking if they had any positions available. I did not send that many emails and I had about an 80% reply rate and maybe 60-70% interview rate. If I remember correctly I had around 8 interviews and was accepted by one. Many of the top labs will have open positions for talented people. At this point my CV was not that outstanding. I had little teaching experience and maybe just one paper published. However, I chose subjects I was interested in, so I was super-keen to work with experts in the field. Potential employers also look for enthusiasm :)
It's also not too early to start building bridges to potential employers. I used study new publications in my field and sometimes ask the authors questions by email. This way you can build up a familiarity with the field and get a general feeling what potential employers may be like. Remember at this stage you also get to do the choosing. Good luck in your search :)

Answer
Excellent question and also excellent answers that we are reading, blessings to all those attending this magnificent forum.
It turns out that there are inevitably morbodidactogenic relationships, that is inevitable.
The teacher attends his classes with a health identity, that is, a state of physical and mental health that gives him a state of mind and therefore, a specific state to be able to relate to others.
First of all it is about relationships with students, but if we talk about their relationships in the institutional context, it is known that it is also about a relationship with co-workers and a relationship with their bosses.
The state of health is decisive to have a good relationship with other people, that is, to the extent that we are happy and healthy, we will be in better conditions to be able to relate healthily with others, to be able to offer other people a friendly relationship constructive and satisfying.
It is necessary to know in advance that health, as the United Nations Organization has said since 1948, is not about the absence of disease. Health is a good physical, mental and social state.
It turns out that if the teacher is overwhelmed by mental and social problems, then it becomes very difficult for him to give a good education to his students.
It also turns out that as long as the teacher is prepared and in good spirits, he will be able to prepare a good class more successfully, with a good teaching activity the learning time of his students will pass happily, however, if the teacher prepares activities with little elaboration and attends to the classroom to earn a salary, then the students get distracted, get tired or finally in one way or another their students rebel and the class becomes hell.
It is a whole cycle explained multifactorially and in which the skill and health of the teacher influences, to a greater or lesser extent, to be able to function satisfactorily, to be able to be lovingly respected by their students, by the directors of the school, by the parents of families, as well as society in general.
A teacher who is respected and loved by the community in which he lives will earn a good social image. A good social image of the teacher is a source of encouragement, of self-satisfaction for the teacher himself, of self-affirmation at work:
These components of professional practice influence the mental health of the teacher.
A teacher with good mental health provides a better education to his students.

Hello,
I'm a Ph.D. candidate, and I would like to conduct a survey on AI-driven product management. At the intersection of the fields of AI and product management, we can distinguish either the management of AI products and components or the use of AI to help develop and manage the product (which does not have to have any AI component in it). I focus more on the latter field in my research - what do you think, from your experience, should be included in such a survey?
Relevant answer
Answer
Dear Aron
This subject can be a proper one. I have a suggestion. You need to limit your idea for better explanation in the survey. Also, It should be noted that the best way is to focus on the applications of AI in the field. Please categorize different applications then you can discuss them in better way..

Thank you

Answer
Comparing wrists and hands in the same position is tricky, especially as regards to rotation. I would get a true PA view (more comfortable) and concentrate on getting the best shot accros the DRUJ. It may be that you need to use an image intesifier to get the exact rotation. You might even need a jig to hold the hand. I would try to compare arthritis in the radio-scaphoid joint and then move onto MCPJ, PIPJ and DIPJ joints. Different arthritic process affect these joints in different patterns. Good luck.

I am interested in seeing whether the focus of GIScience studies have shifted over the last few decades from being more local or regional in scale towards global. My assumption is that due to the availability and accessibility of global datasets (e.g. user generated data) and technical advancements that make it possible to analyse these datasets triggered a shift in geographic focus.
In a recent review of OpenStreetMap related publications, we found that 6.5% of analyzed publications had a global focus [1] . I was wondering if there are similar review papers that are broader in scope.

Hi! Recently we started using Cytation 1 in our lab to count cells and see them on a plate. I have no problems counting HEK 293T cells in 24 well plates from "Greiner bio-one" or "Thermo Nunclon Delta Surface" (look at them, they look so pretty!). But when we move on in a 48 well plate from the same brands, Cytation 1 cannot focus, and we have results like the ones in the second picture.
Also, my colleagues are having problems with the 24 well plate but counting fibroblast instead of HEK. We didn't change a thing in the settings, and we are really mad about it. Any ideas?
Thanks!
Relevant answer
Answer
This seems an autofocus problem when plate was changed. Change back to 24 well plate and see you get sharp image.
1. If yes, then, check user manual for Autofocus methods after putting 48 well plate onto reader.
2. If No, then, check the plate in another reader if you have, or restart the software.
In any case, the Autofocus needs to be calibrated for different plates, as the dimensions, depth etc of these plates differ. Alternatively, the software might have user controlled manual focus settings to fix it at certain height to scan for different plates.

Personally, I do not see the point why to use fuzzy control for motor drives at all. Electrical drive systems can be considered to be fully deterministic (except measurement noise) while their dynamics are well understood and easy to model. Hence, there is no fuzziness / stochastic impact within a drive system which would justify fuzzy logic based control actions.

Question

In many studies, people consider results as statistically significant if the p-value of the data analysis is less than the prespecified alpha (significance level) of 0.05. Thus, many researchers (including me!) are often more enthusiastic about in-depth discussions of our results when our test statistics of the relationship between variables or difference among sample groups shows an alpha value of 0.05 or less. Some differences have huge ecological implications at an alpha value of 0.1 or greater. That could also be why we do not always get the threshold for statistical significance we often set at 0.05. Why don't we focus more on the ecological importance of ecological observation than the statistical significance?
Relevant answer
Answer
These concepts are no alternatives and they cannot be substituted or interchanged by each other. The statistical significance is only about your observed data, judged in relaion to some kind of model you use that might explain some aspects of the data, and about nothing else. Particularily not about the sensibility or usefulness of the model.
A high stat. significance indicates only that your observed data provide some sufficient amount of information about an aspect of the model. This aspect is typically a parameter or coefficient value, which often represents a mean change (as a difference between conditions or a "slope" over time, location, concentration, etc.). Using the model, a value of this interesting parameter is estimated from the observed data. The statistical significance is then used to check if the data provide sufficient information to statistically discern this estimate from some postulated or hypothesized value. If -and only if- this is the case, then -and only then- it is acceptable to interpret the estimated value with respect to the hypothesized value.
A simple example: You want to see if the amount of N incorporated by trees depends on the average yearly temperature T (as part of the climatic conditions the tree grows in). You collect data from many trees grown in different climatic conditions. You model the N content as a log-normal distributed random variable of which the expected value depends on T, like E(log(N)) = b0 + b1*T. This is a simple linear regression model of log(N) against T (which may or may not be a sensible model - it requires substative knowledge to judge this!). The coefficient b1 estimates the in the expected log(N) per unit of T (Kelvin, for instance). The model will give you an estimated value for b1 for which your observed data are most likely. This doenot tell you anything about the "quality" of the estimated value. The same data may be not much ess likely for considerably different vaules, and one may also get considerably different estimated values when repeating the experiment (using data from different trees). Now the question is: what can you say about the dependency of N and T (according to your model), given the data you actually observed?
An often interesting question is if you can at least say something about the direction: does the incorporation of N increase or decrease with T? The estimated value has a sign, it is positive or negative. But can you interpret it? To find this out, you can test the data against the hypothesis that b1=0. If this gives a very small p-value, then your obsreved data allows you to statistically discern the estimated value of b1 from this hypothesized value, what means that you can say if b1 can be expected to be positive or negative. Otherwise (no very small p-value) your data don't provide enough information to say if b1 if positive or negative (it's not conclusive regarding the direction of the effect).
Judging the ecological relevance requires some additional statement about what change is considered relevant. Let's denote this minimally relevant change with R. It's straight forward to test your data against this hypothesis: b1=R. If the estimated value of b1 can be statistically discerned from R, then you can conclude if the expected dependency is relevant or not. Usually people don't test such hypotheses directly. Instead they test the continuum of all possible hypotheses and provide the interval of hypotheses that can not be statistically discerned from the estimated value as a confidence interval. You can then quickly see if this interval is outside ofsome "band of irrelevance" (however a scientist or politician will define this).

Hello all!
I am working on a time series model by using FB prophet. One of the issues I have is that in certain days, the model is consistently over or under forecasting. General diagnosis I have for these over or under estimations indicate potential outliers on those dates. However, on those dates, there are reasons for variation/outliers but the magnitude may not be taken into consideration accordingly by the model. What I mean by this is that we do have certain events happening on these dates that we do expect it to go up & down based on the changes in some of the variables. It is adjusting to the variable to update the yhat but I can not seem to figure out the reason in some days. Lets say every 4th Thursday of the month it overestimates but in other 3 it is within the reasonable error margin.
Any ideas or suggestions as to where I should focus on to figure out this very particular issue?
I have looked into many potential external factors that may cause these changes but so far have not been able to solve the issue with any additional variable hence I am now looking into the y itself to see if there are any obvious things that I am missing.
Looking forward to brainstorming with you all.

I have had to withdraw a manuscript I submitted for publication because the reviewer insisted that I include work which I consider tangential to my focus in a paper recently. While I found all their criticisms valuable I considered their insistence for inclusion of particular papers which in my opinion are tangential to the work as unacceptable. It does appear that reviewer's fail to understand an author's perspective and on account of their reviewer status have operated to force their views and orientation on other people's works. They have in many instances completely diverted many an author's view point to their own which practice is only working to narrow perspectives to issues.
Relevant answer
Answer
Reviewers must recognize strengths and give constructive feedback to assist the author in resolving problems in the work. Some journals want two sets of remarks from reviewers: one for the author and one for the editor exclusively.
It is perfectly OK to disagree with a reviewer's opinion. You can write the editor a point-by-point rebuttal stating why you disagree with the reviewer's proposal. Make sure your response is supported by evidence. If your point of view is well-founded, the editor will take it into account.
Revise your contribution and explain why you didn't change some of the reviewers' remarks. Describe what you changed or did not alter and why in the cover letter and/or the 'Response to reviewers' document. You should withdraw your manuscript. Object to the editor's choice.

Relevant answer
Answer
In my perspective, Artificial Intelligence greatly improves the conditions for volunteers and employees in workplaces dedicated to serving the public need for health care services, everything from surgeons, performing invasive operations using high-powered microscopic equipment controlled by robotic arms and computer screens visually calibrated engineering, to civil engineering of robotic devices to help make patients more comfortable in the waiting room specially designed for infants, children, adults, disabled, senior citizens, and the elderly. In my opinion, robots are being designed to serve in the capacity of servers and entertainers, for example. Imagine this scenario: in the waiting room of a children's clinic, robots amuse and entertainment children, thus relieving the parent or guardian of anxiety. Meanwhile, receptionists, schedulers, and other office and clinic staff workers may complete their personalized computerized data monitoring in a pleasanter and more relaxed atmosphere. Furthermore, unlike a television set, animated robots can be specifically programmed to interact well with patients, both children and adults, and may create a quieter and more interactive alternative to a television or a toy box or magazines.

What happen when we use two species of earthworm i.e. one epigeic and one endogeic for the degradation of waste? Also focus on their efficiency rate.
Relevant answer
Answer
Dear Neeraj Pandey You used two different species for the degradation wastes but the trophic and habitat niche of both the earthworm are different.
Epigeic earthworms like (Eisenia fetida, Eudrrilus eugeniae, Eisenia andrei) feed decaying organic matter like plants leaves, decaying friuts and vegetables, paper waste etc. but endogeic species like llolobophora chlorotica, Apporectodea caliginosa, Apporectodea icterica etc. feed soil and obtain nutrients from these soil.
The habitat of both the species are also different the epigeic earthworms are like in the topsoil or upper most layer of the soil and they can not burrow while the endogeic earthworms are in the 10 to 20 inches deep soil by making horizontal burrows. so when you use the two different- different species of the earthworms to decompose the waste. Epigeic earthworms are alive in the organic waste while due too lack of the soil endogeic can not.
In this combined composting epigeic earthwormms shows hyperbolic curve and endogeic due to lack of soil die after some time.
