  • Nevidomskyy, Andriy H.; Coleman, Piers; Flint, Rebecca (American Physical Society (APS), 2011-08)
    Using a two-channel Anderson model, we develop a theory of composite pairing in the 115 family of heavy fermion superconductors that incorporates the effects of f-electron valence fluctuations. Our calculations introduce ...
  • Hirose, Masashi; Cappellaro, Paola; Aiello, Clarice Demarchi (Nature Publishing Group, 2013-01)
    The sensitivity of quantum magnetometer is challenged by control errors and, especially in the solid state, by their short coherence times. Refocusing techniques can overcome these limitations and improve the sensitivity ...
  • Pan, Wei; Aharony, Nadav; Pentland, Alex Paul; Wei Pan (AAAI Publications, 2011)
    We have carefully instrumented a large portion of the population living in a university graduate dormitory by giving participants Android smart phones running our sensing software. In this paper, we propose the novel problem ...
  • Su, Linhui Julie; Auluck, Pavan K.; Outeiro, Tiago Fleming; Yeger-Lotem, Esti; Kritzer, Joshua A.; Tardiff, Daniel F.; Bell, George W.; Fraenkel, Ernest; Lindquist, Susan; Strathearn, Katherine E.; Liu, Fang; Cao, Songsong; Hamamichi, Shusei; Hill, Kathryn J.; Caldwell, Kim A.; Cooper, Antony A.; Caldwell, Guy A.; McCaffery, J. Michael; Rochet, Jean-Christophe (Company of Biologists Limited, 2010-01)
    α-Synuclein (α-syn) is a small lipid-binding protein involved in vesicle trafficking whose function is poorly characterized. It is of great interest to human biology and medicine because α-syn dysfunction is associated ...
  • Vaillier, Clarisse; Honegger, Thibault; Gidrol, Xavier; Peyrade, David; Kermarrec, Frederique (Public Library of Science, 2014-04)
    AC electrokinetics is a versatile tool for contact-less manipulation or characterization of cells and has been widely used for separation based on genotype translation to electrical phenotypes. Cells responses to an AC ...
  • Waters, Amanda J.; Bilinski, Paul; Eichten, Steven R.; Vaughn, Matthew W.; Ross-Ibarra, Jeffrey; Gehring, Mary; Springer, Nathan M. (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2013-11)
    In plants, a subset of genes exhibit imprinting in endosperm tissue such that expression is primarily from the maternal or paternal allele. Imprinting may arise as a consequence of mechanisms for silencing of transposons ...
  • Ernst, Jason M.; Kellis, Manolis (Nature Publishing Group, 2010-12)
    Chromatin is composed of DNA and a variety of modified histones and non-histone proteins, which have an impact on cell differentiation, gene regulation and other key cellular processes. Here we present a genome-wide chromatin ...
  • Regev, Aviv; Levin, Joshua Z; Yassour, Moran; Adiconis, Xian; Nusbaum, Chad; Thompson, Dawn Anne; Friedman, Nir; Gnirke, Andreas (Nature Publishing Group, 2010-08)
    Strand-specific, massively parallel cDNA sequencing (RNA-seq) is a powerful tool for transcript discovery, genome annotation and expression profiling. There are multiple published methods for strand-specific RNA-seq, but ...
  • Jimenez Zarco, Jose I.; Xulvi-Brunet, Ramon; Campbell, Gregory W.; Turk-MacLeod, Rebecca; Chen, Irene A. (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2013-09)
    The origin of life is believed to have progressed through an RNA world, in which RNA acted as both genetic material and functional molecules. The structure of the evolutionary fitness landscape of RNA would determine natural ...
  • Lander, Eric S.; Park, Peter J. (Nature Publishing Group, 2012-09)
    Lung squamous cell carcinoma is a common type of lung cancer, causing approximately 400,000 deaths per year worldwide. Genomic alterations in squamous cell lung cancers have not been comprehensively characterized, and no ...
  • White, Kevin P.; Henikoff, Steven; Stein, Lincoln; White, Robert A. H.; Russell, Steven; Ahmad, Kami; Feng, Xin; Henikoff, Jorja G.; Morrison, Carolyn A.; Shah, Parantu K.; Brown, Christopher D.; Nègre, Nicolas; Kheradpour, Pouya; Kellis, Manolis (Public Library of Science, 2010-01)
    Insulators are DNA sequences that control the interactions among genomic regulatory elements and act as chromatin boundaries. A thorough understanding of their location and function is necessary to address the complexities ...
  • Lander, Eric S. (Nature Publishing Group, 2012-07)
    To characterize somatic alterations in colorectal carcinoma, we conducted a genome-scale analysis of 276 samples, analysing exome sequence, DNA copy number, promoter methylation and messenger RNA and microRNA expression. ...
  • Choi, Jae-Hoon; Christensen, Caleb A.; Heo, Myoung Sun; Ketterle, Wolfgang; Lee, Ye-Ryoung; Rvachov, Timur Michael; Wang, Tout T. (American Physical Society, 2012-06)
    Fermi gases with repulsive interactions are characterized by measuring their compressibility as a function of interaction strength. The compressibility is obtained from in-trap density distributions monitored by phase-contrast ...
  • Magesan, Easwar; Cappellaro, Paola; Cooper-Roy, Alexandre (American Physical Society, 2013-12)
    We present methods that can provide an exponential savings in the resources required to perform dynamic parameter estimation using quantum systems. The key idea is to merge classical compressive sensing techniques with ...
  • Sanzeni, Alex; Whittle, Andrew; Germaine, John T.; Colleselli, Francesco (American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), 2012-10)
    A laboratory test program was conducted to evaluate the one-dimensional (1D) compression and creep properties of intact sand (and silty-sand) samples from a deep borehole at the Malamocco Inlet to the Venice Lagoon. The ...
  • Tang, Jing; Du, Ning; Doyle, Patrick S. (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2011-09)
    We experimentally study the effects of a uniform electric field on the conformation of single DNA molecules. We demonstrate that a moderate electric field (~200 V/cm) strongly compresses isolated DNA polymer coils into ...
  • Campagne, Fabien; Dorff, Kevin C.; Chambwe, Nyasha; Robinson, James T.; Mesirov, Jill P. (Public Library of Science, 2013-11)
    Large biological datasets are being produced at a rapid pace and create substantial storage challenges, particularly in the domain of high-throughput sequencing (HTS). Most approaches currently used to store HTS data are ...
  • Juba, Brendan Andrew; Kalai, Adam Tauman; Khanna, Sanjeev; Sudan, Madhu (Institute for Theoretical Computer Science, 2011-01)
    Compression is a fundamental goal of both human language and digital communication, yet natural language is very different from compression schemes employed by modern computers. We partly explain this difference using ...
  • Medard, Muriel; Feizi-Khankandi, Soheil; Effros, Michelle (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-02)
    In this paper, we demonstrate some applications of compressive sensing over networks. We make a connection between compressive sensing and traditional information theoretic techniques in source coding and channel coding. ...
  • Grant, Elyot; Indyk, Piotr (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2013-06)
    Compressive sensing is a method for acquiring high dimensional signals (e.g., images) using a small number of linear measurements. Consider an n-pixel image x ∈ R[superscript n], where each pixel p has value x[subscript ...
