(Not to be confused with Hominoidea, Hominidae, Homininae, or Hominina.)
The Hominini is a tribe of the subfamily Homininae; it comprises three subtribes:
Hominina, with its one genus Homo;
Australopithecina, comprising several extinct genera (see taxobox);
Panina, with its one genus Pan, the chimpanzees.
Members of the human clade, that is, the Hominini, including Homo and those species of the australopithecines that arose after the split from the chimpanzees, are called (...)
The Pleistocene (symbol "PS") is the geological epoch which lasted from about 2,588,000 to 11,700 years ago, spanning the world’s recent period of repeated glaciations.
The Pleistocene is the first epoch of the Quaternary Period or sixth epoch of the Cenozoic Era.
The end of the Pleistocene corresponds with the end of the last glacial period. It also corresponds with the end of the Paleolithic age used in archaeology.
In the ICS timescale, the Pleistocene is divided into four stages or (...)

Insights from Chromosome-Centric Mapping of Disease-Associated Genes: Chromosome 12 Perspective. Jayaram S, Gupta MK, Shivakumar BM, Ghatge M, Sharma A, Vangala RK, Sirdeshmukh R. J Proteome Res. 2015 Sep 4;14(9):3432-40. doi:10.1021/acs.jproteome.5b00488. PMID: #26143930#
Biomedical videos as open educational resources (OERs) are increasingly proliferating on the Internet. Unfortunately, seeking personally valuable content from among the vast corpus of quality yet diverse OER videos is nontrivial due to limitations of today’s keyword- and content-based video retrieval techniques.
To address this need, this study introduces a novel visual navigation system that facilitates users’ information seeking from biomedical OER videos in mass quantity by (...)

Named-entity recognition (NER) plays an important role in the development of biomedical databases. However, the existing NER tools produce multifarious named-entities which may result in both curatable and non-curatable markers. To facilitate biocuration with a straightforward approach, classifying curatable named-entities is helpful with regard to accelerating the biocuration workflow.
Curatable Named-Entity (...)
Granularity is the extent to which a material or system is composed of distinguishable pieces or grains. It can either refer to the extent to which a larger entity is subdivided, or the extent to which groups of smaller indistinguishable entities have joined together to become larger distinguishable entities.
For example, a kilometer broken into centimeters has finer granularity than a kilometer broken into meters. In contrast, molecules of photographic emulsion may clump together to (...)
Metadata is "data about data".
Two types of metadata exist:
structural metadata Structural metadata is data about the containers of data.
descriptive metadata. Descriptive metadata uses individual instances of application data or the data content.
Metadata was traditionally in the card catalogs of libraries. As information has become increasingly digital, metadata is also used to describe digital data using metadata standards specific to a particular discipline. Describing (...)
