Use of modified atmosphere to extend shelf life of fresh-cut carambola (Averrhoa carambola L. cv. Fwang Tung)
(Acta Horticulturae, 2010-06-30) [Trabalho apresentado em evento]
Fresh-cut fruit products, including carambola (Averrhoa carambola L.) have limited marketability due to cut surface browning attributed to oxidation of phenolic compounds by enzymes such as polyphenol oxidase (PPO). The ...
Minimally processed guava Fruits (Psidium guaiava L.)
(Acta Horticulturae, 2005-12-01) [Trabalho apresentado em evento]
'Paluma' guavas, after internal quality evaluation using magnetic resonance tomography, were used to produce fresh-cut product. Fruits were peeled or not, cut in halves and seed removed, and they were packaged in polystyrene ...
Coordinated, network-based research as a strategic component of science in Brazil
(Genetics and Molecular Research, 2004-06-23) [Trabalho apresentado em evento]
Scientific research plays a fundamental role in the health and development of any society, since all technological advances depend ultimately on scientific discovery and the generation of wealth is intricately dependent ...
Algebraic approach to optimal clone selection applied in metagenomic projects
(ISB 2010 Proceedings - International Symposium on Biocomputing, 2010-05-03) [Trabalho apresentado em evento]
Due to the wide diversity of unknown organisms in the environment, 99% of them cannot be grown in traditional culture medium in laboratories. Therefore, metagenomics projects are proposed to study microbial communities ...
Optimal clone identifier based on dynamic rules and process algebra
(International Conference on Bioinformatics, Computational Biology, Genomics and Chemoinformatics 2009, BCBGC 2009, 2009-12-01) [Trabalho apresentado em evento]
The rule creation to clone selection in different projects is a hard task to perform by using traditional implementations to control all the processes of the system. The use of an algebraic language is an alternative ...
Transcriptional Profile of Bradyrhizobium elkanii Semia 587 in Symbiosis with Soybean (Glycine max L. Merrill) Analyzed by DNA Microarray
(Biological Nitrogen Fixation: Towards Poverty Alleviation Through Sustainable Agriculture, 2008-01-01) [Trabalho apresentado em evento]
Heavy metal nutrients in tomato plants cultivated in soil amended with biosolid composts
(Acta Horticulturae, 2003-11-01) [Trabalho apresentado em evento]
The use of biosolids in horticulture could contribute to recycle residues produced by men. This study analyzed concentrations of Cu, Mn and Zn in the compost during fermentation, in the soil amended with the composts and ...
EFFECT of DIFFERENT SOLID AMOUNTS IN THE PHYSICAL and MICROSCOPICAL PROPERTIES of SiC POROUS CERAMICS
(Advanced Powder Technology Vi, 2008-01-01) [Trabalho apresentado em evento]
The presence of pores in ceramics is directly related to the chosen forming process. So, in the starch consolidation method, the ceramics show, after burning, pores with morphology similar to that presented by this organic ...
Heavy metals availability and fractions in soil amended with biosolid composts
(Acta Horticulturae, 2007-12-01) [Trabalho apresentado em evento]
The heavy metals when linked to organic matter have a behavior in the soil that is still little known. This study aimed to evaluate the effect of sewage-sludge-based composts when incorporated in the soil, in relation to ...
Use of Natural Products for Post-Harvest Preservation of 'Vega' Cut Roses
(Xxviii International Horticultural Congress on Science and Horticulture For People (ihc2010): International Symposium on Postharvest Technology In The Global Market, 2012-01-01) [Trabalho apresentado em evento]
Use of natural products as floral preservatives has helped to reduce the indiscriminate use of chemical products in flower preservation. In this study, we tested the ability of certain natural products to maintain the ...
