  • Wei, Yifeng; Funk, Michael Andrew; Rosado, Leonardo A.; Baek, Jiyeon; Drennan, Catherine L.; Stubbe, JoAnne (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2014-08)
    The class III anaerobic ribonucleotide reductases (RNRs) studied to date couple the reduction of ribonucleotides to deoxynucleotides with the oxidation of formate to CO[subscript 2]. Here we report the cloning and heterologous ...
  • Costantino, Cristina Maria; Hafler, David A.; Spooner, Eric; Ploegh, Hidde (Public Library of Science, 2012-01)
    Human CD4[superscript +] T cells process and present functional class II MHC-peptide complexes, but the endogenous peptide repertoire of these non-classical antigen presenting cells remains unknown. We eluted and sequenced ...
  • Cavicchi, Elizabeth (Springer Science+Business Media, 2011-02)
    What do you see in a mirror when not looking at yourself? What goes on as a pendulum swings? Undergraduates in a science class supposed that these behaviors were obvious until their explorations exposed questions with no ...
  • Chiu, Han-Pang; Liu, Huan; Kaelbling, Leslie P.; Lozano-Perez, Tomas (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-12)
    Our goal is to grasp 3D objects given a single image, by using prior 3D shape models of object classes. The shape models, defined as a collection of oriented primitive shapes centered at fixed 3D positions, can be learned ...
  • Grunwald, Stephan; Mottet, Alexis; Grousseau, Estelle; Plassmeier, Jens K.; Uribelarrea, Jean-Louis; Gorret, Nathalie; Sinskey, Anthony J.; Popovic, Milan K.; Guillouet, Stephane E. (Wiley Blackwell, 2014-08)
    Formic acid, acting as both carbon and energy source, is a safe alternative to a carbon dioxide, hydrogen and dioxygen mix for studying the conversion of carbon through the Calvin–Benson–Bassham (CBB) cycle into value-added ...
  • Bazant, Martin Z. (American Physical Society, 2010-02)
    Experiments now quantitatively confirm the standard model of electrokinetics, in which electric fields drive the flow of electrolytes, potentially leading to better sensors and biomedical diagnostic devices.
  • Gollakota, Shyamnath; Adib, Fadel M.; Katabi, Dina; Seshan, Srinivasan (Association for Computing Machinery, 2011-08)
    Recent studies show that high-power cross-technology interference is becoming a major problem in today’s 802.11 networks. Devices like baby monitors and cordless phones can cause a wireless LAN to lose connectivity. The ...
  • Swager, Timothy Manning; Liu, Shuang; Muller, Peter; Takase, Michael K. (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2011-07)
    Efficient synthesis of heteroleptic tris-cyclometalated Ir(III) complexes mer-Ir(C/\N)[subscript 2](trpy) (trpy = 2-(1H-[1,2,3]triazol-4-yl)pyridine) is achieved by using the Cu(I)-triazolide intermediates formed in “click” ...
  • Deschenes, Oliver; Greenstone, Michael; Guryan, Jonathan (American Economic Association, 2009-05)
    There is a growing consensus that emissions of greenhouse gases due to human activity will alter the earth’s climate, most notably by causing temperatures, precipitation levels, and weather variability to increase. The ...
  • Zhang, Yanxu; Friedman, Carey; Selin, Noelle Eckley (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2013-11)
    We investigate effects of 2000–2050 emissions and climate changes on the atmospheric transport of three polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs): phenanthrene (PHE), pyrene (PYR), and benzo[a]pyrene (BaP). We use the GEOS-Chem ...
  • Jones, Russell; Travers, Constance; Rodgers, Charles; Lazar, Brian; English, Eric; Lipton, Joshua; Vogel, Jason; Martinich, Jeremy; Strzepek, Kenneth Marc (Springer-Verlag, 2012-05)
    We estimated the biological and economic impacts of climate change on freshwater fisheries in the United States (U.S.). Changes in stream temperatures, flows, and the spatial extent of suitable thermal habitats for fish ...
  • Greenstone, Michael; Olivier, Deschênes (American Economic Association, 2011-10)
    Using random year-to-year variation in temperature, we document the relationship between daily temperatures and annual mortality rates and daily temperatures and annual residential energy consumption. Both relationships ...
  • Pindyck, Robert S. (American Economic Association, 2013-09)
    Very little. A plethora of integrated assessment models (IAMs) have been constructed and used to estimate the social cost of carbon (SCC) and evaluate alternative abatement policies. These models have crucial flaws that ...
  • Olson, Gary; Malone, Thomas; Introne, Joshua E.; Laubacher, Robert J.; Malone, Thomas W. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-05)
    The Climate CoLab is a system to help thousands of people around the world collectively develop plans for what humans should do about global climate change. This paper shows how the system combines three design elements ...
  • Ferreira, David; Marshall, John C; Rose, Brian Edward James (American Meteorological Society, 2010-10)
    Multiple equilibria in a coupled ocean–atmosphere–sea ice general circulation model (GCM) of an aquaplanet with many degrees of freedom are studied. Three different stable states are found for exactly the same set of ...
  • Jeong, Gill-Ran; Wang, Chien (Copernicus Publications, 2010-09)
    The climate impact of the seasonality of Biomass Burning emitted Carbonaceous Aerosols (BBCA) is studied using an aerosol-climate model coupled with a slab ocean model in a set of 60-year long simulations, driven by BBCA ...
  • Ekmekcioglu, Lerna (Cambridge University Press, 2013-06)
    This article explores a forcible, wartime transfer of women and minors from one ethnic group to another, and its partial reversal after the war. I analyze the historical conditions that enabled the original transfer, and ...
  • Hallgren, Willow; Monier, Erwan; Kicklighter, David; Melillo, Jerry; Schlosser, Adam; Sokolov, Andrei P. (American Geophysical Union (AGU), 2013-04)
    A global biofuels program will potentially lead to intense pressures on land supply and cause widespread transformations in land use. These transformations can alter the Earth climate system by increasing greenhouse gas ...
  • Edwards, Morgan Rae; Trancik, Jessika (Nature Publishing Group, 2014-04)
    Energy technologies emit greenhouse gases with differing radiative efficiencies and atmospheric lifetimes. Standard practice for evaluating technologies, which uses the global warming potential (GWP) to compare the integrated ...
  • Sterman, John; Fiddaman, Thomas; Franck, Travis Read; Jones, Andrew; McCauley, Stephanie; Rice, Philip; Sawin, Elizabeth; Siegel, Lori (Wiley Blackwell, 2012-07)
    In 1992 the nations of the world created the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) to negotiate binding agreements to address the risks of climate change. Nearly every nation on Earth committed ...
