ORBi Open Repository and Bibliography
In may 2007, the ULg's Administrative Board (joined in June 2007 by the FUSAGx) decided to create an institutional repository and defined a strong institutional self-archiving policy to increase the visibility, accessibility and impact of the University's publications (Board's decision).
This decision led to the official launch, in November 2008, of the ORBi platform including both the Academic Bibliography and the Institutional Repository of the Wallonia-Europe University Academy.

The prenatal development in swamp buffalo - Van Hanh, N; Melo de Sousa, Noelita; Beckers, Jean-François; Bui, XN
There are morphological and reproductive physiological differences between swamp buffalo (Bubalus carabanensis) and river buffalo (Bubalus bubalis). The development of fetus weight and fetus biometry was reported in river buffalo and other animals but not in swamp buffalo. The aim of this study was to describe the inherent variability in fetus related measurements during swamp buffalo pregnancy. The data is based on measurements of 267 fetuses and 5 new born claves from swamp buffalo. The results show that a significant linear correlation exists between estimated age of fetuses and parameters of fetus sizes. There were correlations between crown-rump length (CRL)...
Dermatophytes as Saprophytes and Pathogens - Monod, M; Mignon, Bernard; Staib, P
Dermatophytes infect the stratum corneum, nails and hair and are the most common agents of superficial mycoses in humans and animals. At present the genome of seven species has been sequenced. Between 22.5 and 24 Mb, the dermatophyte genomes are smaller in size than those of Coccidioides spp., Histoplasma spp. and Aspergillus spp. They are enriched for particular families of genes encoding secreted proteases, fungal specific kinases and proteins containing the LysM domain that is known to bind chitin. Different tools were recently developed to improve genetic analyses of dermatophytes, including efficient systems for targeted gene inactivation, gene silencing and...
