Mitra (Vedic) This article is about the Vedic deity Mitra.

Mitra (Vedic)

For other divinities with similar names, see Mitra. Indic Mitra should not be confused with the Zoroastrian divinity Mithra (Miθra). Although their names both derive from the Proto-Indo-Iranian noun *mitra, "(that which) causes binding", a shared etymology through which the two also share some properties, Indic Mitra and Iranian Mithra developed differently, and the two figures are not identical.

Indic Mitra should also not be confused with Roman Mithras. Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

MIT has a strong entrepreneurial culture and the aggregated revenues of companies founded by MIT alumni would rank as the eleventh-largest economy in the world.[14] History[edit] Foundation and vision[edit] Rogers, a professor from the University of Virginia, wanted to establish an institution to address rapid scientific and technological advances.[19][20] He did not wish to found a professional school, but a combination with elements of both professional and liberal education,[21] proposing that: The Rogers Plan reflected the German research university model, emphasizing an independent faculty engaged in research, as well as instruction oriented around seminars and laboratories.[23][24] Early developments[edit] Charles Stark Draper Laboratory.

Draper Laboratory is an American not-for-profit research and development organization, headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts; its official name is "The Charles Stark Draper Laboratory, Inc".[5] The laboratory specializes in the design, development, and deployment of advanced technology solutions to problems in national security, space exploration, health care and energy.

"[citation needed] It advocates the 'SENS' approach, which it describes as "the repair of living cells and extracellular material in situ," an approach which it contrasts with geriatric medicine's focus on specific diseases and infirmities, and biogerontology's focus on intervention in metabolic processes. Dr.

Ágoston Trefort (7 February 1817 – 22 August 1888) was a Hungarian politician, who served as Minister of Religion and Education from 1872 until his death. The C9 League is an alliance of nine elite universities in mainland China, analogous to the Russell Group in UK, the Go8 in Australia, and the Ivy League in the USA.

The members of the C9 League are Fudan University, Harbin Institute of Technology, Nanjing University, Peking University, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Tsinghua University, University of Science and Technology of China, Xi'an Jiao Tong University, and Zhejiang University.[1] Together they account for 3% of the country's researchers but receive 10% of national research expenditures.

How important is endosymbiosis? : When two become one Jeon's colonies of amoebae seem perfectly happy living with their permanent guests, the x-bacteria, inside of them. This kind of relationship — two or more different species living in close association — is called symbiosis. Each amoeba and its x-bacteria work together for mutual benefit — but they are still separate organisms. Evidence like this points to the likelihood that the "merging" of two simple organisms has also happened under natural conditions. Biological databases are stores of biological information.[1] Primary nucleotide sequence databases[edit] The International Nucleotide Sequence Database (INSD) consists of the following databases.

The three databases, DDBJ (Japan), GenBank (USA) and European Nucleotide Archive (Europe), are repositories for nucleotide sequence data from all organisms. All three databases accept nucleotide sequence submissions, and then exchange new and updated data on a daily basis to achieve optimal synchronisation between them. These three databases are primary databases, as they house original sequence data. [edit] These databases of databases collect data from different sources and make them available in new and more convenient form, or with an emphasis on a particular disease or organism.
