WG

wire gauge

1. An instrument for measuring the thickness of wire or sheet metal; usually consists of a steel plate having a series of notches, of standard opening sizes, around the edge.
2. One of several systems for specifying the diameter of a wire.

"We have always said the secure missions should be put on WGS. We still believe that commercial satellites are a huge capability at a modest cost."
Utilization of the platforms of 75% was assumed for WES and WGS since 100% utilization is unlikely to be due to contributing factors such as maintenance.
Given the wealth and diversity of institutionalized praxis and community learning in Canadian WGS programs, surprisingly little critical literature exists that reflects upon this curriculum component in the specific contexts of Canadian WGS and/or current trends in Canadian postsecondary education more broadly.
Although routine use of PFGE and subsequent WGS in this investigation represents a novel application of technology to detect CRE transmission, the burden of resources might preclude similar use in states with medium-to-high prevalences of CRE.
* Good correlation was obtained between calculated electrical conductivity and light-off performance for catalytic reactions such as CO-NO and WGS reaction
For the state health-care system to benefit from the WGS NBS program would require a system that provided pre-and-post genetic counseling, and interventions that addressed the needs of identified "at-risk" populations.
But bacteria can survive for long periods, even after vigorous disinfection procedures, (4) and WGS analysis has shown they are able to travel via pathways no one had predicted.
I found questions like the following particularly helpful as I read and pondered the essays in the collection: "Is there a construct we might devise to understand the history of WGS that does not use 'Waves,' perhaps another metaphor that more accurately or less-problematically describes its history?
The WGS consists of a floating platform with a scooper, which can be propelled over the water surface to collect floating garbage such as plastic bottles and thermocol.
Since the predominant next generation sequencing (NGS) technologies produce individual read lengths much shorter than many RNA transcripts, tiling is as much a requirement for WES as it is for WGS. Overall then, while there are a lot of nuances we won't go into, while either a WGS or WES requires a lot of data to be generated and processed by bioinformatic pipelines, a WES is to a first approximation 30 fold less data than a WGS (you're excused for expecting that to be 100 fold but WGS tend to be run ~30x depth and WES at ~100x, to allow for capture of rare variants; more on that below).
These approaches are based on the identification of single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) using whole-genome sequencing (WGS), which offers higher discriminatory power and precision in assigning transmission clusters (4-6).
On the sidelines of the World Government Summit, (NCC) Chief Executive Officer Ahmed Mohammed Al-Mannai signed the "News Agencies Tolerance Charter" which was issued by the representatives of news agencies participating in the World Government Summit 2019, (WGS),.
