      Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV's) have gained increasing considerations due to their low cost and increased autonomy. A large number of applications in the military and civilian fields. The present work considers a low level ...
    • Guided Reading for Second Language Learning in Bahrain: Is it Worth it 

      Ali, Afrah Hassan (2010-05)
      Much research has shown that Extensive Reading (ER) is beneficial for second language learning. It helps in building up the four language skills, and in developing positive attitudes and motivation to learn the language. ...
    • Gut bacteria of Cuora amboinensis (turtle) produce broad-spectrum antibacterial molecules 

      Akbar, Noor; Khan, Naveed Ahmed; Sagathevan, K; Iqbal, Mazhar; Tawab, Abdul; Siddiqui, Ruqaiyyah (Nature Research, 2019)
      Antimicrobial resistance is a major threat to human health, hence there is an urgent need to discover antibacterial molecule(s). Previously, we hypothesized that microbial gut flora of animals are a potential source of ...
