Agrita TaurinaDace Markus


Topicality of the article is that the development of a child's speech today needs to become more important and be promoted, because increasingly teachers in pre-school face the situation of children entering the pre-school environment with poorly developed vocabulary and insufficient skills to make a request to be able to communicate effectively with peers and adults. The aim of the article is to study the promotion of the Latvian learning of children of pre-school age in the pedagogical process in theoretical and practical terms, by implementing various methods and through the provision of the educational environment. The research includes analysis of scientific literature and methodology for learning the Latvian language of children aged 5-6 years old in pre-school education institutions of Riga and Kurzeme, evaluating audio records, and qualitative analysis of the observed facts. Research question – how to improve the acquisition of Latvian language of native speakers and minority pre-school age children? The research was conducted in May and June 2019 and the data were received from 4 pre-school educational establishments in Kurzeme (75 records) and 5 pre-school educational establishments in Riga (75 records).

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule.
