THE KALEVALA – now with improved formatting and increased font size plus a list and descriptions of the main characters. The Kalevala is a 19th-century work of epic poetry compiled by Elias Lönnrot from Karelian and Finnish oral folklore and mythology he collected on his journeys as a rural doctor. The central plot of the epic traces the journeys of the bardic hero-shaman Väinämöinen in his quest for a wife, together with the theft of a powerfully magical talisman called the Sampo. The Sampo is a pivotal element of the whole work. Many actions and their consequences are caused by the Sampo itself or a character's interaction with the Sampo. It is described as a magical talisman or device that brings its possessor great fortune and prosperity, but its precise nature has been the subject of debate to the present day. The Kalevala is regarded as the national epic of Karelia and Finland and is one of the most significant works of Finnish literature. The Kalevala was instrumental in the development of the Finnish national identity and the intensification of Finland's language strife that ultimately led to Finland's independence from Russia in 1917. The Kalevala begins with the traditional Finnish creation myth, leading into stories of the creation of the earth, plants, creatures, and the sky. Creation, healing, combat and internal story telling are often accomplished by the character(s) involved singing of their exploits or desires. Many parts of the stories involve a character hunting or requesting lyrics (spells) to acquire some skill, such as boat-building or the mastery of iron making. As well as magical spell casting and singing, there are many stories of lust, romance, kidnapping and seduction. The protagonists of the stories often have to accomplish feats that are unreasonable or impossible which they often fail to achieve, leading to tragedy and humiliation. =============== KEYWORDS/TAGS: Kalevala, Finland, Epic Poem, fantasy, fiction, magic, supernatural, unexplained, enchanting, enchantment, talisman, Birth Of, Wainamoinen, Rune, Wainamoinens Sowing, Youkahainen, Fate Of Aino, Lamentation, Haplfss Journey, Rescue, Maiden Of The Rainbow, Origin Of Iron, Ilmarinen, Forges The Sampo, Lemminkainen, Lament, Kyllikki, Broken Vow, Second Wooing, Death, Lemminkainens Restoration, Boat-Building, Find, Lost Word, Rival Suitors, Brewing Of Beer, Wedding-Feast, Osmotar, Bride-Adviser, Farewell, Wedding-Songs, Origin Of, Serpent, Unwelcome Guest, Mother's Counsel, Isle Of Refuge, Frost-Fiend, Kullerwoinen, Son Of Evil, Kullervo, Sheperd, shepherd, Cheat Cake, Tribe-Folk, Evil Deeds, Victory, Death, Bride Of Gold, Fruitless Wooing, Sailing, Harp, Harp-Songs, Capture, Sampo, magical device, lost Sampo, Sea, Second Harp, Nine Diseases, Otso, Honey-Eater, Louhi,  Steal, Sun, Moon, Fire, Capture Of The Fire-Fish, Restoration, Sun And Moon, Mariatta, Mary, Wainamoinen's Departure, Creation, healing, combat, hunting, songs, skaldic, boat building, forge, iron monger, forging, spells, magical spell, casting, mastery,

Nanobodies are recombinant single-domain antibodies of camelid origin. We set out to generate nanobodies as tools to study nuclear pore complexes (NPCs) that constitute the major passageways for nucleocytoplasmic exchange. Therefore, we developed an optimized phage display-based workflow for the generation of nanobodies from an immunized animal. The identified nanobodies were functionally expressed in the E. coli cytoplasm in a disulfide bond-free form, thus overcoming the engineering limitations imposed by conventional periplasmic secretion. Using protease-cleavable affinity tags, we developed a generic strategy for native protein complex isolation from eukaryotic sources, e.g. for structural analyses by electron microscopy. We further established a reliable fluorescent labeling strategy of nanobodies that is based on engineered surface cysteines and maleimide chemistry. In contrast to NHS labeling of lysines, maleimide labeling is site-specific, does not interfere with antigen recognition and yields superior imaging reagents, especially for super-resolution microscopy. Using our optimized workflow, we obtained a large toolbox of nanobodies against constituents of Xenopus NPCs that can now be used to study various unresolved aspects of NPC structure, assembly and function.

For a long time there has been a critical need for a book to assess the genomics of tropical plant species. At last, here it is. This brilliant book covers recent progress on genome research in tropical crop plants, including the development of molecular markers, and many more subjects. The first section provides information on crops relevant to tropical agriculture. The book then moves on to lay out summaries of genomic research for the most important tropical crop plant species. There is a critical need for a book to assess the genomics of tropical plant species. Early genomics successes resulted in tremendous advances in high throughput technologies and data management that greatly reduced costs and increased rates of data accumulation. In addition, the early plant successes showed that, although Arabidopsis can be a reasonable model for dicots and rice a model for monocots, there is a real need for species-specific genomic information if it is to be used for crop improvement. Thus began programs for developing the genomics of numerous plant crop species with considerable emphasis on tropical plant species. Reasons for this emphasis are that the tropics are recognized as the regions of origin of a large part of genetic diversity with genes and phenotypes not found in temperate plants, and that human population growth is destroying much of the tropical environment and with it the genetic diversity located there. Remarkable genomics progress has been made in several tropical crop plants, noticeably sorghum and papaya, both of which are undergoing whole genome sequencing. International consortia or networks have been established for a number of tropical crops to mobilize and coordinate resources and efforts towards generating genomic tools and eventual sequencing of the genome for basic biological research and crop improvement. These crops include sugarcane, banana, coffee, citrus, millet, cacao, and peanut. The genomic information generated by these international consortia will enhance the capacity for identification, characterization, and cloning of agronomically important genes of tropical crop plants.This book covers the recent progress on genome research in tropical crop plants, including the development of molecular markers, genomic and cDNA libraries, expressed sequence tags (ESTs), genetic and physical maps, gene expression profiles, and whole genome sequences. The first section of this book provides background information for tropical agriculture of its crops. The second section consists of concise summaries of genomic research for the economically most important tropical crop plant species. As a comprehensive genomic resource, it is of considerable interest to practicing plant biologists, graduate and undergraduate students, and research professionals such plant breeders and germplasm curators who work on or are interested in tropical plant species. Tropical crop plants are one of the natural world s most valuable assets. However, the genetic resources of tropical plants are underutilized and in danger of being lost due to the destruction of natural habitats, the high costs of conservation programs, and our lack of appreciation of the worth of these precious resources. Considering the tropical origin of much of the biological diversity that is responsible for genes and phenotypes of temperate crops, there is a critical need for assessing the genomics of tropical plant species. Genomics of Tropical Crop Plants summarizes recent progress on genomic research, including the development of molecular markers, genomic and cDNA libraries, expressed sequence tags (ESTs), genetic and physical maps, gene expression profiles, and whole genome sequences for 20 tropical crop plants. It offers background information about the evolutionary origin and environments of tropical crop species, international programs that are addressing the needs of tropical agriculture, and the potential for new technologies to increase the productivity and value of tropical crops. This book provides new dimensions to growing information concerning temperate crops and their morphology, physiology, and parallel evolution in diverse plant lineages.This book will appeal to graduate students, post graduates, researchers, and professionals in plant breeding, genetics, germplasm conservation, and agronomy of tropical crop plants.About the Editors:Paul H. Moore is a world authority on tropical plants with a particular focus on sugarcane, papaya, and pineapple.
