Abstracts

These are PDF files for abstracts of published papers as well as Kinohi Institute Technicql Reports (KITRs)  for review and/or download.

For the abstracts, if full papers would be of assistance for scientific research or education, please contact us.

KITRs are generated when the Institute initially considers supporting a specific series of investigations. The papers are usually a brief introduction to the topic, an initial evaluation of the available data, and an estimate of the pros and cons of conducting the series of experiments required.
