Heat related mortality in the two largest Belgian urban areas: A time series analysis

until 2011 taking into account the effect of air pollution. Methods The threshold in temperature above which mortality increases was determined using segmented regressions for both urban areas. The ...

New QSAR models to predict chromosome damaging potential based on the in vivo micronucleus test

methods to determine the potential of chemicals to induce mutations at the gene level has been developed over the last decades. Conversely, only few such methods are currently available to predict potential ...

Acrylamide in other foods_Determination of acrylamide levels in some food categories and estimation of the exposure for the Belgian population

categories, as targeted by Recommendation (EU) 2019/1888 and the EFSA call. A secondary objective was the determination of the influence of the cooking method used (oven versus deep-fryer) on the production of ...

Development of an NGS-Based Workflow for Improved Monitoring of Circulating Plasmids in Support of Risk Assessment of Antimicrobial Resistance Gene Dissemination.

view of AMR gene localization, i.e., chromosomal or on a plasmid. Whole-genome and plasmid DNA extraction methods were compared, as were assemblies consisting of short reads (Illumina MiSeq), long reads ...

A Practical Method to Implement Strain-Level Metagenomics-Based Foodborne Outbreak Investigation and Source Tracking in Routine.

outbreak depends on the rapid and accurate identification of the responsible food source. Conventional methods based on isolation of the pathogen from the food matrix and target-specific real-time polymerase ...

Use of Whole Genome Sequencing Data for a First in Silico Specificity Evaluation of the RT-qPCR Assays Used for SARS-CoV-2 Detection.

December 2019. COVID-19 cases are confirmed by the detection of SARS-CoV-2 RNA in biological samples by RT-qPCR. However, limited numbers of SARS-CoV-2 genomes were available when the first RT-qPCR methods ...

The Benefits of Whole Genome Sequencing for Foodborne Outbreak Investigation from the Perspective of a National Reference Laboratory in a Smaller Country.

WGS whole genome sequencing Abstract: Gradually, conventional methods for foodborne pathogen typing are replaced by whole genome sequencing (WGS). Despite studies describing the overall benefits, ...

NAuRA: Genomic Tool to Identify Staphylococcal Enterotoxins in Strains Responsible for FoodBorne Outbreaks.

s in Europe. SE s constitute a protein family with 27 proteins. However, enzyme immunoassays can only detect directly in food the five classical SE s (SEA- SEE). Thus, molecular characterization methods ...

How to Annotate and Submit a Short Linear Motif to the Eukaryotic Linear Motif Resource.

Holger; Gibson, Toby J Source: Methods Mol Biol, Volume 2141 (2020) Abstract: Over the past few years, it has become apparent that approximately 35% of the human proteome consists of intrinsically ...
