just got some cells from OFK-6 hTERT2 cell line that were sent by a colleague. However when thawing them they were not viable. We used the Keratinocyte serum free media from Gibco (https://www.sigmaaldrich.com/PT/en/product/sigma/131500a?gclid=CjwKCAjwo8-SBhAlEiwAopc9W1gUBbw-9sMB10gLpDM49sN1gYhVc-7uQepsBp71TFywTR4Sjvvj-xoCzaMQAvD_BwE) and followed all the cautions with other cell lines. What could have gone wrong? Meanwhile, is there anyone, ideally in Spain, that could provide us some aliquoted of those cells? Of course we would arranje for shipment to Portugal. Many thanks!

Hi everybody I need RGB and NIR images of the Sentinel satellite for a small region in Portugal. I already tried with eo-browser, but as you can see in the picture, the resolution of the images is very low. How can I download images with good resolution? Another problem is that when I download a true color image (based on bands 4,3,2) and a false color image (based on bands 8,4,3) and open them with opencv in Python, the value of the 4 channel in the true color image is different from the 4 channel in the false color image. Thanks for your time

Hello! I'm looking for raster files to create a map of the Iberian Peninsula and also the Minho River, in Portugal. Can you recommend me any websites where I can found those?
The raster files I found only are good for a larger perspective, because when I zoom in on the specific region (Minho River) it looses a LOT of quality.
I am reviewing the origin of the exotic species in the Iberian Peninsula of Rattus and Mus and found no information about the first entry of the species of Rattus in Spain and Portugal.
Any help will be most useful.
Thank you, Gloria

Can anyone offer guidance about intramuscular temperature measurement?
My name is Deepanjan Sharma and I am a PhD research fellow from University of Duisburg Essen and currently working in INL , Portugal. My main research focus is to understand the conductive properties of CIGS with different doping by using a newly developed CAFM technique. For this I want to create a model in SCAPS with layers of Diamond tip (E.Affinity 0.7eV, Eg 5.5 eV and Na 1E21 cm3) and CIGS with p-type doping.
My question is how to balance the left and right contact during establishing the model. In my case CiGS has Mo contact with workfunction 4.65eV(left) and tip has a gold contact with 5.1 eV (Right). But if I plug this number in the contacts there is no current flow whatsoever. But if I put flat band the dependence of IV is constant which is wrong compared to the experiment.
I would be very happy if ANYONE help me a little bit to get it right. If anyone need any sample data , screenshots of the instace where we having our problem I will be happy to send you. Just let me know.
Our goal is to get a simulated result of the AFM technique and correspondence with our experimental data ( this idea of the technique is very unique and never been done before).

Sofola (Delgoa bay), Mozambique, was renown among Portuguese as the Biblical Orphis, with streets paved with gold. Antonio Manutius, in 1538
Chapter King of Portugal's places, recalls this alluvional gold was almost extinguished when Portuguese "conquered it" (before being wipe out by malaria, the proof Romans already knew and used the place). But I consider the last deadly cyclones, in that poor country so dramatically affected, may have unveil new gold deposits. What is your opinion at the respect?

During the last years many electronic databases of vegetation plots, mainly phytosociological relevés, were established in different European countries. These databases contain information which is extremely valuable for both testing various macroecological hypotheses and for nature conservation surveying or monitoring.
Somebody can help me to find vegetation-plot databases of relevés based in the phytosociological method made in Portugal?
Thanks in advance.
Taking into consideration that this type of organisations not only provide credit but also impose harsh economic conditions on nations, are they still a good options for post-crisis economies? As an example we could see the difference in recovery between Spain (IMFed) and Portugal (not IMFed).
As a student in my final year of masters degree, i need to do a research project regarding one specific area of my interest. So, i want to search something about the 3D printing in retail and how are these technologies applied in this context.
I talked to my senior Professor wich he told me i have a few good research questions:
-The creation of added value through 3D Printing in the Value Chain;
-The intelectual property and illegalities regarding CAD Designs;
-Can the 3D printers in retail shops change the business model?;
All of these three questions look very good to do a search work. However, i was hoping maybe i could hear other opinions because this is such a sensitive subject that i need to be sure it is possible to be done, since this is about a technology who has not been truly implemented in most of companies worldwide, due to its limitations.
Thank you very much for your time.
Portugal has a good history of socialist rule nowadays. There is a lack of information about its achievements - what are they?

This is more a comment than a question. RG suggests, correctly, that I might be interested in your project. Restoring native vegetation on impoverished soils is a task we face in southern Portugal. I also have a particular interest in Puya raimondii and anything you can do to benefit this extraordinary Red-Listed plant will be very welcome.
, I have a student that needs to use your updated correlations instead of EPA’s. Can you provide us you the mathematical formulas?

I am a student in ecology, currently conducting a monitoring survey of butterflies in a reserve in Portugal.
I'm using a modification of the Pollard transect method in order to inventory butterfly species. My goal is to compare the butterfly diversity between the Inside and the outside of the reserve.
I have 3 different transects inside the reserve, and 3 transects outside, carefully defined to represent different types of habitat. I'm planning on doing 5 times each transect (so 5 replicates per transect).
At the end of my survey, I will calculate diversity indices (Shannon, Simpson,...) for each transect.
I was planning on doing a repeated measures anova to compare these indices, but I read recently that such indices needed to be transformed in order to be compared (for example, I should use exp(H') instead of H' in my statistical analysis).
My question is : do you think it's necessary to transform the diversity indices I'm going to calculate ? If so, do you think a repeated measures anova is the good way to analyze my data, knowing that I'd like to compare butterfly diversity on different levels (Inside/outside of the reserve, but also between each transect) ?
I hope that my question is clear enough (if not, I can add some clarification).
I'm looking at philosophers who criticize the Lusophony.
We study the environmental external costs of charging electric vehicles in different European countries.
Different fuels and technologies (e.g. nuclear, coal, gas, hydro, wind, ...) are used in different countries to generate electricity and these power plants are switched on/off at different times of the day/week/year. Therefore the external costs of charging vehicles depend on the location (country) and time of day.
We are looking for datasets on the national electricity production per fuel/technology with a temporal resolution of 15 minutes. We have only been successful in locating such data (online) for Belgium and France. Finding this data will allow us to calculate the environmental benefits of electric vehicles and determine the best schemes for charging them in different countries.
I'm interested in thinking the criticism of Lusophony, CPLP and the Francophonie.

We are currently discussing a new genus name for a grasshopper species that is endemic to southern Portugal, southern Spain and northern Morocco (north of the Atlas Mts.). The region is often called the Afro-Atlanto-Mediterranean region, but this is of course a little bit lenghty to use it in a genus name. Is there any shorter scientific name for this region available?
We need to exchange knowledge of the different parts (fish, bivalves, detritivores, algae) of the whole system. We want to develop a deccision supoort system for IMTA implementation in Portugal to take advantage of the traditional earth pond productions that are now in disuse.
I'm studding a pluton composed by a main porphyritic two-mica granite ( V granite) in which occur small stocks of a fine grained muscovite granite with some concentration of tourmaline (L granite). Both granites have features of S-type granites and are late to post Variscan. However i don't know how to explain the shape of the REE from the L granite (attached file).
