IJERPH, Vol. 20, Pages 6216: Coastal Water Quality Modelling Using E. coli, Meteorological Parameters and Machine Learning Algorithms
In this study, machine learning models were implemented to predict the classification of coastal waters in the region of Eastern Macedonia and Thrace (EMT) concerning Escherichia coli (E. coli) concentration and weather variables in the framework of the Directive 2006/7/EC. Six sampling stations of EMT, located on beaches of the regional units of Kavala, Xanthi, Rhodopi, Evros, Thasos and Samothraki, were selected. All 1039 samples were collected from May to September within a 14-year follow-up period (2009–2021). The weather parameters were acquired from nearby meteorological stations. The samples were analy...

The prevalence and genotype of 21-hydroxylase deficiency in the Croatian Romani population
ConclusionA high prevalence of SW 21-OHD in the Croatian Romani population caused by the homozygous cIVS2-13A/C-G pathological variant was found. In addition to isolation and consanguinity, other possible reasons could be the heterozygous advantage of the CYP21A2 gene pathological variant and the bottleneck effect as a result of the Romani Holocaust in World War II.
