From the database of
Essential Science IndicatorsSM, this list of Fast
Moving Fronts has been generated by a comparison of the data sets for the
current period of January 31, 2003-December 31, 2008, and the previous
period of November 30, 2002-October 31, 2008 (sliding 6-year period).
One Research Front was selected for mapping from the list of Fast Moving
Fronts from this period. They are:
Nitrogen oxide(s) storage/reduction catalysts have been
developed as an aftertreatment technology to reduce
nitrogen oxide emissions from lean-burn power sources.
GRAPEVINE GENOME SEQUENCE; ANCESTRAL HEXAPLOIDIZATION;
TRANSGENIC TROPICAL FRUIT TREE PAPAYA; MINING SEGMENTAL
Genomic variants represent a rich reservoir of
molecular resources useful in biotechnological
applications, development of alternative energy
sources, and mitigation of anthropogenic environmental
