New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z : MPMI: Molecular Plant Microbe Interactions

Glass and Light

‘Glass and Light’ by BlueRidgeKitties on Flickr

From the website for the journal:

“MPMI publishes original refereed, research on the molecular biology and molecular genetics of pathological, symbiotic, and associative interactions of microbes with plants and insects with plants. MPMI publishes both fundamental and advanced applied research. In MPMI, “microbe” encompasses viruses, viroids, prokaryotes, fungi, oomycetes, nematodes, and insects. The term “molecular biology” includes studies on biochemical or biophysical mechanisms, genetics, genomics, and advanced microscopy. Molecular analysis of relevant factors in the plant alone, the microbe alone, or molecular analysis of components that affect or modulate plant-microbe interactions may be the subject of an MPMI paper.”

Now available to the University of Cambridge electronically from volume 1 (1988) to present.

This title was recommended by eight people in one week, which might be a record.

LEME: Lexicons of Early Modern English

New on eresources@cambridge A-Z : LEME: Lexicons of Early Modern English

As novices newly crept out of the schooles of Dante, Arioste and Petrarch, they greatly polished our rude and homely manner of vulgar poesie, from that it had bene before, and for that cause may justly be sayd the first reformers of our English meetre and stile – George Puttenham, The Art of English Poesie

Lexicons of Early Modern English (LEME) is a historical database of monolingual, bilingual, and polyglot dictionaries, lexical encyclopedias, hard-word glossaries, spelling lists, and lexically-valuable treatises surviving in print or manuscript from the Tudor, Stuart, Caroline, Commonwealth, and Restoration periods.

Texts of word-entries whose headword (source) or explanation (target) language is English tell us what speakers of English thought about their tongue in the period served by the Short-title and Wing catalogues, from the advent of printing to about 1700. Their lexical insights, which may at times seem misguided to us, shaped the history of our living tongue.

British Pharmacopoeia Online

Addenbrooke's mosaic

British Pharmacopoeia (BP) is the official, authoritative collection of standards for UK medicinal substances for human and veterinary use.

The 2014 edition includes almost 3500 monographs which are legally enforced by the Human Medicines Regulations 2012. Where a pharmacopoeial monograph exists, medicinal products sold or supplied in the UK must comply with the relevant monograph. All monographs and requirements of the European Pharmacopoeia are also reproduced in the BP.

Produced by the British Pharmacopoeia Commission Secretariat of the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency, the BP makes an important contribution to public health by setting publicly available standards for the quality of medicines.

Since 1864, the BP has been providing authoritative standards for medicinal products and pharmaceutical substances and it continues to play an important role in the standard-setting process worldwide. Now used in over 100 countries, the BP remains an essential reference for all individuals and organisations working within pharmaceutical research and development, manufacture and testing around the globe.
