1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 8 libraries worldwide
Abstract: Advances in the techniques and methodologies for the evaluation of protein quality are presented for agricultural researchers. An overall view of the strengths and weaknesses of the various evaluation methods is provided along with in-depth descriptions of several new and established techniques. The discussions cover the protein requirements of humans and their relevance to protein quality evaluation, the analytical methods for determining the amino acids profiles of particular foods, chemical and microbiological assays of protein quality, use of animal experimentation and clinical methods, and choice of procedure. The specific methodologies described include the Kjeldahl procedure for total nitrogen determination, sulphur amino acid analysis by performic acid pre-oxidation, the four-enzyme in vitro assay for protein digestibility, and procedures for the determination of net protein utilization and relative protein value in rats
Industrial clusters and innovation systems in Africa institutions, markets, and policy ( Book )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 8 libraries worldwide
This book examines the incidence and role of clusters as a viable and increasingly important form of industrial organization in Africa. It presents a series of theoretically grounded case studies that analyze clusters in different industrial sectors and at different levels of economic development. The overall aim is to improve understanding of how local clusters can be transformed into local systems of innovation and how local clusters can be better connected to global actors. The authors draw out implications for policy and practice and provide guidance to governments, private sector associations, and non-governmental organizations.--Publisher's description
