RNA-seq Evaluating Several Custom Microarrays Background Correction and Gene Expression Data Normalization Systems | Chapter 09 | Advances and Trends in Biotechnology and Genetics Vol. 2

Microarray gene expression technologies represents a widely used tool in transcriptomics and genomics studies worldwide. This technology is stable with the purpose of gene expression differential analysis because of their well-established biostatistics and bioinformatics analysis schemes. However, microarray reliability with regard that analysis typology, depend on probe specificity as well as applied data normalisation and/or background correction procedures. Then, we assessed the performance of 20 different microarrays background correction / gene expression data normalisation combination procedures from “linear models for microarray and RNA-Seq data analysis” package (limma), by comparing significantly differentially expressed genes detected by several custom microarray design strategies, depending on microarray probe size as well as probe set number per transcript model by assuming RNA-Seq approach as benchmark. Basing exclusively on a multivariate statistical clustering surveys, in R programing environment, we showed the pre-eminence of data normalisation (DN) as opposed to noise background correction/subtraction (BS) in microarray expression analysis. Although the combination between (i) gene expression data normalization and (ii) background subtraction procedures (BS+DN), improves the agreement between heterogenic microarray platforms as well as RNA-Seq platform in calling significantly modulated genes, quantile normalisation system combined with all processed background correction procedures has been discriminated as exhibiting highest sensitivity with RNA-Seq (p < 0.05). In conclusion we showed the pre-eminence of microarray data pre-processing step in gene expression differential analysis by according a priority to data normalisation procedure especially to quantile normalisation system contributing in stabilizing gene expression differential analysis results with regard heterogenic custom microarray design strategies (heterogenic microarray platforms).

Empowerment and Leader Member Exchange towards Organizational Citizenship Behavior Readiness among Government Workforce in Malaysia | Book Publisher International

  State agencies are among the most significant entities that represent the public's needs, and their programmes are essential to a state's and the nation's economic growth and development. State agencies have been rife by public concerns for years, as demonstrated by the Public Complaints Bureau, as problems of inefficiency in service quality and delivery have yet to meet the public's standards. With the support of 15 employees from state agencies on Malaysia's east coast, this study aims to achieve three targets. The first and second objectives are to investigate the ties between leader-member exchange (LMX) and OCB empowerment. The final aim is to define the most significant factors that affect OCB willingness. A total of 288 people took part in the survey, which was conducted using a cluster sampling process. The survey items had achieved the necessary reliability, according to the pilot test results, and some sub-dimensions were renamed after factor analysis.

The Utilization of Agro-Waste: A Nanobiotechnology Point of View | Chapter 10 | Recent Advances in Biological Research Vol. 5

Aims: To review the utilization of agro-waste in the eco-friendly synthesis of nanoparticles and their biomedical, catalytic and industrial applications. Study Design: A review. Place and Duration of Study: This review was carried out in the interim of three weeks exploiting all relevant data, literature and publications where necessary. Methodology: Profound gathering of literatures/publications and reviews were employed with all carefulness and professional courtesy; enough useful information were gathered over time. The introduction emphasizes the dawn of science and technology, when great ideas were still latent later leading to the advent of history changing innovations like the completion of human genome and then the birth of nanotechnology. Although, nanotechnology had been known decades been popularized by Richard Feynman in his talks in the year 1959; and in this present dispensation, nanotechnology has been a solution to many intricate challenges/ t

Re-asserting Cultural Perspectives: Old People and New Ideas in Bole Butake’s Lake God and The Survivors and Sankie Maimo’s Succession in Sarkov | Chapter 10 | Perspectives of Arts and Social Studies Vol. 2

African cultures have undergone transformations from the colonial period to the present, often to the detriment of its cultural evolution and within the larger global community. As it were, colonial education subordinated African communalism and created in its place an anti-African spirit evident in the assimilation of western values. This did not only end up in a kind of cultural betrayal, but also posed as a serious threat to the dignity and identity of the people. Those who fall prey to this kind of cultural imperialism are the young people who are often irrationally carried away by western fashion and modes that they tend to neglect and/or forget their cultural ways of life as they join the race of “progress.” This situation has given rise to a conscious effort by creative writers to re-assert and protect African values while at the same time liberating themselves from the longstanding western effort at suppressing, controlling and dominating their thoughts particularly through n
