How to use classification in a sentence?

  1. Phil Miller:

    The IARC classification of glyphosate is inconsistent with the findings of regulatory bodies in the United States and around the world, and it is not a sound basis for any regulatory action.

  2. Susanna Toivanen:

    The classification is not so exact and they don’t discuss these different types of hemorrhagic stroke.

  3. Mike Stratton:

    As we refined the sophistication of the approach and the mutation classification, the algorithms and the sequencing, it has become clear that this was a big challenge that would require coordinated investment and organisation, we have to collect five to ten thousand tumour samples and normal blood, we have to quality-control the DNA sequencing and do the data management and statistics -- it's a combination of large-scale epidemiology and large-scale genomics that haven't been married together in this way before.

  4. Patrick Comer:

    Terrestrial ecological systems are specifically defined as a group of plant community types (associations) that tend to co-occur within landscapes with similar ecological processes, substrates, and/or environmental gradients. A given system will typically manifest itself in a landscape at intermediate geographic scales of tens to thousands of hectares and will persist for 50 or more years. This temporal scale allows typical successional dynamics to be integrated into the concept of each unit. With these temporal and spatial scales bounding the concept of ecological systems, we then integrate multiple ecological factors—or diagnostic classifiers—to define each classification unit. The multiple ecological factors are evaluated and combined in different ways to explain the spatial co-occurrence of plant associations.

  5. Van Deusen:

    Both of those, if theyre positive, leadto what is called a probable case. So its not a laboratory-confirmed, but its a probable case and its just a different classification.
