  • Silbey, Susan S. (MIT Press, 2014-07)
    In American public imagination, courts are powerful but also impotent. They are guardians of citizens' rights but also agents of corporate wealth; simultaneously the least dangerous branch and the ultimate arbiters of ...
  • Kim, Seokhee; Grant, Robert A.; Sauer, Robert T. (Elsevier, 2011-03)
    Protein quality control requires careful regulation of intracellular proteolysis. For DegP, a periplasmic protease, substrates promote assembly of inactive hexamers into proteolytically active cages with 12, 18, 24, or 30 ...
  • Cambria, Elena; Renggli, Kasper; Kroll, Carsten; Krueger, Andrew T.; Imperiali, Barbara; Griffith, Linda G.; Chopko Ahrens, Caroline; Cook, Christi Dionne (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2015-06)
    Synthetic extracellular matrices are widely used in regenerative medicine and as tools in building in vitro physiological culture models. Synthetic hydrogels display advantageous physical properties, but are challenging ...
  • Ferrier, Ken L.; Perron, J. Taylor; Huppert, Kimberly L.; Slosberg, Michelle; Mukhopadhyay, Sujoy; Rosener, Matt; Stock, Jonathan D. (Geological Society of America, 2013-02)
    Erosion of volcanic ocean islands creates dramatic landscapes, modulates Earth’s carbon cycle, and delivers sediment to coasts and reefs. Because many volcanic islands have large climate gradients and minimal variations ...
  • Ballinger, Brad; Benbernou, Nadia M.; Bose, Prosenjit; Damian, Mirela; Demaine, Erik D.; Dujmovic, Vida; Flatland, Robin; Hurtado, Ferran; Iacono, John; Lubiw, Anna; Morin, Pat; Sacristan, Vera; Souvaine, Diane; Uehara, Ryuhei (Association for Computing Machinery, 2010-12)
    For a fixed integer k [greater than or equal to] 0, a k-transmitter is an omnidirectional wireless transmitter with an in nite broadcast range that is able to penetrate up to k "walls", represented as line segments in ...
  • Aichholzer, Oswin; Aloupis, Greg; Demaine, Erik D.; Demaine, Martin L.; Fekete, Sandor P.; Hoffmann, Michael; Lubiw, Anna; Snoeyink, Jack; Winslow, Andrew (2013-08)
    Can folding a piece of paper at make it larger? We explore whether a shape S must be scaled to cover a flat-folded copy of itself. We consider both single folds and arbitrary folds (continuous piecewise isometries S → ...
  • Bhatia, Gaurav; Bansal, Vikas; Harismendy, Olivier; Schork, Nicholas J.; Topol, Eric J.; Frazer, Kelly; Bafna, Vineet (Public Library of Science, 2010-10)
    Genome wide association (GWA) studies, which test for association between common genetic markers and a disease phenotype, have shown varying degrees of success. While many factors could potentially confound GWA studies, ...
  • Ahn, Hee-Kap; Bae, Sang Won; Demaine, Erik D.; Demaine, Martin L.; Kim, Sang-Sub; Korman, Matias; Reinbacher, Iris; Son, Wanbin (Elsevier, 2010-10)
    For a set of n points in the plane, we consider the axis-aligned (p,k)-Box Covering problem: Find p axis-aligned, pairwise-disjoint boxes that together contain at least n−k points. In this paper, we consider the boxes to ...
  • Rubin, Julia; Gordon, Michael I.; Nguyen, Nguyen; Rinard, Martin C. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2015-11)
    This paper studies communication patterns in mobile applications. Our analysis shows that 63% of the external communication made by top-popular free Android applications from Google Play has no effect on the user-observable ...
  • Mateu Barreda, Vicent; Hoang, Andre H.; Kolodrubetz, Daniel Walter; Stewart, Iain (American Physical Society, 2015-05)
    We compute the e[superscript +]e[superscript -] C-parameter distribution using the soft-collinear effective theory with a resummation to next-to-next-to-next-to-leading-log prime accuracy of the most singular partonic ...
  • Yuan, Bingbing; Huang, Wenqian; Lodish, Harvey F (Elsevier, 2014-09)
    While we have considerable understanding of the transcriptional networks controlling mammalian cell differentiation, our knowledge of posttranscriptional regulatory events is very limited. Using differentiation of primary ...
  • Makarova, Kira S.; van der Oost, John; Koonin, Eugene V.; Zetsche, Bernd; Gootenberg, Jonathan S; Abudayyeh, Omar Osama; Slaymaker, Ian; Essletzbichler, Patrick; Volz, Sara E.; Joung, Julia; Regev, Aviv; Zhang, Feng (Elsevier, 2015-09)
    The microbial adaptive immune system CRISPR mediates defense against foreign genetic elements through two classes of RNA-guided nuclease effectors. Class 1 effectors utilize multiprotein complexes, whereas Class 2 effectors ...
  • Fujino, Tadahiro; Leslie, Jennifer H.; Eavri, Ronen; Chen, Jerry L.; Lin, Walter C.; Flanders, Genevieve H.; Borok, Erzsebet; Horvath, Tamas L.; Nedivi, Elly (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press, 2011-12)
    Use-dependent selection of optimal connections is a key feature of neural circuit development and, in the mature brain, underlies functional adaptation, such as is required for learning and memory. Activity patterns guide ...
  • Orlando, David A.; Guenther, Matthew G.; Frampton, Garrett M.; Young, Richard A. (Elsevier, 2012-07)
    TrxG and PcG complexes play key roles in the epigenetic regulation of development through H3K4me3 and H3K27me3 modification at specific sites throughout the human genome, but how these sites are selected is poorly understood. ...
  • Metreveli, Zviad; Zeldovich, Nickolai; Kaashoek, M. Frans (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2012-02)
    CPHash is a concurrent hash table for multicore processors. CPHash partitions its table across the caches of cores and uses message passing to transfer lookups/inserts to a partition. CPHash's message passing avoids the ...
  • Stahl, Mason O.; Tarek, M. H.; Yeo, Darren C. J.; Badruzzaman, A. B. M.; Harvey, Charles F. (American Geophysical Union (AGU), 2014-12)
    Groundwater recharge affects water budgets and groundwater quality on the deltas and floodplains of South and Southeast Asia. Rain and flooding rivers recharge groundwater during the monsoon; irrigated rice fields and ...
  • Morgan, Stephen P.; Johnson, Catherine A.; Einstein, Herbert H. (Springer Netherlands, 2013-02)
