    In this work we studied various aspects of DNA repair in plants, focusing mainly on point mutation repair and its interconnection with double-strand break repair. We were using transgenic point mutation and recombination ...
  • Kovalchuk, Igor; Kovalchuk, Olga (M D P I A GArts and ScienceDepartment of Biological SciencesUniversity of Lethbridge, 2008)
    Rapid technological development is inevitably associated with many environmental problems which primarily include pollution of soil, water and air. In many cases, the presence of contamination is difficult to assess. It ...

    Critical care nurses often face the ordeal of witnessing a patient's death in a tense and stressful environment. Anecdotal stories shared among nurses reveal that unusual experiences often occur at the time of or after a ...
  • Grant Kalischuk, Ruth; Nixon, Gary (SpringerHealth SciencesUniversity of Lethbridge, 2009)
    Youth suicide is a complex and perplexing public health problem. This article presents a brief overview of related literature, describes a transpersonal theory of healing following youth suicide, and provides practice ...
