  • Sharp, Phillip A. (Elsevier B.V., 2009-02)
    New roles for RNAs in biology continue to emerge, and a glance at the history of RNAs may prepare molecular biologists for future discoveries about these powerful molecules. A striking new role for RNAs is their widespread ...
  • Taylor, Frank E (American Physical Society, 2016-03)
    Prompt photon production in √sNN = 2.76-TeV Pb + Pb collisions has been measured by the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider using data collected in 2011 with an integrated luminosity of 0.14 nb[superscript −1]. ...
  • Le, Long Bao; Phan, Khoa T.; Vorobyov, Sergiy A.; Le-Ngoc, Tho (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-08)
    Optimal power allocation for multi-user amplify- and-forward wireless relay networks in which multiple source-destination pairs are assisted by a set of relays is investigated. Two relay power allocation strategies based ...
  • Velu, Chander K.; Madnick, Stuart E.; Van Alstyne, Marshall W. (M.E. Sharpe, 2013-01)
    This paper applies the theory of real options to analyze how the value of information-based flexibility should affect the decision to centralize or decentralize data management under low and high uncertainty. This study ...
  • Benaych-Georges, Florent; Guionnet, Alice (Institute of Mathematical Statistics, 2014-06)
    We consider the eigenvectors of symmetric matrices with independent heavy tailed entries, such as matrices with entries in the domain of attraction of α-stable laws, or adjacencymatrices of Erdos-Renyi graphs. We denote ...
  • Benaych-Georges, Florent; Guionnet, Alice; Male, Camille (Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg, 2014-03)
    We show central limit theorems (CLT) for the linear statistics of symmetric matrices with independent heavy tailed entries, including entries in the domain of attraction of α-stable laws and entries with moments exploding ...
  • Lamming, Dudley W.; Sabatini, David M.; Lamming, Dudley W.; Sabatini, David M. (Elsevier, 2013-08)
    The mechanistic target of rapamycin (mTOR) signaling pathway regulates many fundamental metabolic and physiological processes, including lipid metabolism. We explore recent findings on the role of mTOR in lipid homeostasis, ...
  • Pandey, Shree P.; Winkler, Jonathan A.; Li, Hu; Camacho, Diogo M.; Collins, James J.; Walker, Graham C. (BioMed Central Ltd, 2014-02)
    Background: Conceptual parallels exist between bacterial and eukaryotic small-RNA (sRNA) pathways, yet relatively little is known about which protein may recognize and recruit bacterial sRNAs to interact with targets. In ...
  • Hoehl, Melanie Margarete; Weibert, Michael; Paust, Nils; Zengerle, Roland; Slocum, Alexander H.; Steigert, Juergen (Transducers Research Foundations, Inc., 2013-10)
    In this paper, we introduce a disposable battery-driven heating system for loop-mediated isothermal DNA amplification (LAMP) inside a centrifugally-driven DNA-extraction platform (LabTube). We demonstrate fully automated, ...
  • Hoehl, Melanie M.; Weißert, Michael; Dannenberg, Arne; Nesch, Thomas; Paust, Nils; von Stetten, Felix; Zengerle, Roland; Slocum, Alexander H.; Steigert, Juergen (Springer-Verlag, 2014-02)
    This paper introduces a disposable battery-driven heating system for loop-mediated isothermal DNA amplification (LAMP) inside a centrifugally-driven DNA purification platform (LabTube). We demonstrate LabTube-based fully ...
  • Unhavaithaya, Yingdee; Orr-Weaver, Terry L. (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2013-12)
    Meiotic chromosome segregation involves pairing and segregation of homologous chromosomes in the first division and segregation of sister chromatids in the second division. Although it is known that the centromere and ...
  • Calderon de Anda, Froylan; Meletis, Konstantinos; Ge, Xuecai; Rei, Damien; Tsai, Li-Huei (Society for Neuroscience, 2010-08)
    The mechanisms underlying the normal development of neuronal morphology remain a fundamental question in neurobiology. Studies in cultured neurons have suggested that the position of the centrosome and the Golgi may predict ...
  • Zickfeld, Kirsten; Solomon, Susan; Gilford, Daniel Michael (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2016-12)
    Mitigation of anthropogenic greenhouse gases with short lifetimes (order of a year to decades) can contribute to limiting warming, but less attention has been paid to their impacts on longer-term sea-level rise. We show ...
  • Frydman, Carola; Jenter, Dirk (Annual Review, 2010-12)
    This paper surveys the recent literature on CEO compensation. The rapid rise in CEO pay over the past 30 years has sparked an intense debate about the nature of the pay-setting process. Many view the high level of CEO ...
  • Knezevic, David; Patera, Anthony T. (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM), 2010-03)
    In this paper we present a reduced basis method for the parametrized Fokker–Planck equation associated with evolution of finitely extensible nonlinear elastic (FENE) dumbbells in a Newtonian solvent for a (prescribed) ...
  • Patera, Anthony T.; Huynh, Dinh Bao Phuong; Knezevic, David; Patera, Anthony T. (Elsevier, 2011-09)
    We introduce a frequentistic validation framework for assessment — acceptance or rejection — of the consistency of a proposed parametrized partial differential equation model with respect to (noisy) experimental data from ...
  • Critchfield, Agatha S.; Yao, Grace; Jaishankar, Aditya; Lieleg, Oliver; Doyle, Patrick S.; House, Michael; Ribbeck, Katharina; Friedlander, Ronn Samuel; McKinley, Gareth H. (Public Library of Science, 2013-08)
    Background: Ascending infection from the colonized vagina to the normally sterile intrauterine cavity is a well-documented cause of preterm birth. The primary physical barrier to microbial ascension is the cervical canal, ...
  • Krauss, Miriam; Roussanova, Anna; Vaz, Amali (IOP Publishing, 2009-07)
    We present multiband photometry of 185 type-Ia supernovae (SNe Ia), with over 11,500 observations. These were acquired between 2001 and 2008 at the F. L. Whipple Observatory of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics ...
  • Wood-Vasey, W. M.; Marion, G. Howie; Challis, Peter; Mandel, Kaisey S.; Bloom, Joshua S.; Modjaz, Maryam; Narayan, Gautham; Hicken, Malcolm; Foley, Ryan J.; Klein, Christopher R.; Starr, Dan L.; Morgan, Adam N.; Rest, Armin; Blake, Cullen H.; Miller, Adam A.; Falco, Emilio E.; Wyatt, William F.; Mink, Jessica; Skrutskie, Michael F.; Kirshner, Robert P.; Friedman, Andrew Samuel (2015-09)
    CfAIR2 is a large, homogeneously reduced set of near-infrared (NIR) light curves (LCs) for Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) obtained with the 1.3 m Peters Automated InfraRed Imaging TELescope. This data set includes 4637 ...
  • Johnson, Micah K.; Dale, Kevin; Avidan, Shai; Pfister, Hanspeter; Freeman, William T.; Matusik, Wojciech (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2011-09)
    Computer-generated (CG) images have achieved high levels of realism. This realism, however, comes at the cost of long and expensive manual modeling, and often humans can still distinguish between CG and real images. We ...
