  • Thorsen, Todd A.; Beretta, Gian Paolo; Poesio, Pietro (American Physical Society, 2009-08)
    A droplet placed in a liquid-liquid solution is expected to grow, or shrink, in time as ∼t[superscript 1/2]. In this Letter, we report experimental evidence that when the composition in the interface is far from thermodynamic ...
  • Ohnemus, Daniel C.; Resing, Joseph A.; Twining, Benjamin S.; Saito, Mak A.; Hawco, Nicholas James (Copernicus GmbH/European Geosciences Union, 2016-10)
    Cobalt is a nutrient to phytoplankton, but knowledge about its biogeochemical cycling is limited, especially in the Pacific Ocean. Here, we report sections of dissolved cobalt and labile dissolved cobalt from the US GEOTRACES ...
  • Conway, Tim M.; Thyng, Kristen M.; John, Seth G.; Fitzsimmons, Jessica Nicole; Lee, Jong-Mi; Kayser, Richard A; Boyle, Edward A (American Geophysical Union (AGU), 2015-12)
    The Southeast Pacific Ocean is a severely understudied yet dynamic region for trace metals such as iron, since it experiences steep redox and productivity gradients in upper waters and strong hydrothermal iron inputs to ...
  • Jansen, An; van der Zande, Elisa; Meert, Wim; Fink, Gerald R.; Verstrepen, Kevin J. (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2012-01)
    The positions of nucleosomes across the genome influence several cellular processes, including gene transcription. However, our understanding of the factors dictating where nucleosomes are located and how this affects gene ...
  • Fitzsimmons, Jessica N.; Boyle, Edward A.; Jenkins, William J. (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2014-11)
    Until recently, hydrothermal vents were not considered to be an important source to the marine dissolved Fe (dFe) inventory because hydrothermal Fe was believed to precipitate quantitatively near the vent site. Based on ...
  • Borraz, Fernando; Zipitria, Leandro; Cavallo, Alberto F.; Rigobon, Roberto (John Wiley & Sons, 2015-04)
    The ‘border effects’ literature finds that political boundaries have a large impact on relative prices across locations. In this paper, we show that the standard empirical specification suffers from selection bias and ...
  • Demaine, Erik D.; Gomez-Martin, Francisco; Meijer, Henk; Rappaport, David; Taslakian, Perouz; Winograd, Terry; Wood, David R.; Toussaint, Godfried (Elsevier, 2008-12)
    We demonstrate relationships between the classic Euclidean algorithm and many other fields of study, particularly in the context of music and distance geometry. Specifically, we show how the structure of the Euclidean ...
  • McCord, Rachel P.; Zhou, Vicky W.; Yuh, Tiffany; Bulyk, Martha L. (Elsevier, 2011-08)
    Identifying gene regulatory elements and their target genes in human cells remains a significant challenge. Despite increasing evidence of physical interactions between distant regulatory elements and gene promoters in ...
  • Ferreira, Leonardo M. R.; Meissner, Torsten B.; Mikkelsen, Tarjei S.; Mallard, William; O’Donnell, Charles W.; Tilburgs, Tamara; Gomes, Hannah A. B.; Camahort, Raymond; Sherwood, Richard I.; Rinn, John L.; Cowan, Chad A.; Strominger, Jack L.; Gifford, David K (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2016-04)
    HLA-G, a nonclassical HLA molecule uniquely expressed in the placenta, is a central component of fetus-induced immune tolerance during pregnancy. The tissue-specific expression of HLA-G, however, remains poorly understood. ...
  • Wang, Danhua; Turitsyn, Konstantin; Chertkov, Michael (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2012-12)
    We consider a linear feeder connecting multiple distributed loads and generators to the sub-station. Voltage is controlled directly at the sub-station, however, voltage down the line shifts up or down, in particular depending ...
  • Haslam, Bryan Todd; Gordhandas, Ankit; Ricciardi, Catherine; Verghese, George C.; Heldt, Thomas (2011-08)
    Medical electronic systems are generating ever larger data sets from a variety of sensors and devices. Such systems are also being packaged in wearable designs for easy and broad use. The large volume of data and the ...
  • Rajagopal, Nisha; Kellis, Manolis; Ernst, Jason; Ray, Pradipta; Wu, Jie; Zhang, Michael; Ren, Bing (Genetics Society of America, 2014-08)
    In eukaryotic cells, histone lysines are frequently acetylated. However, unlike modifications such as methylations, histone acetylation modifications are often considered redundant. As such, the functional roles of distinct ...
  • Kapeli, Katannya; Pratt, Gabriel A.; Vu, Anthony Q.; Hutt, Kasey R.; Martinez, Fernando J.; Sundararaman, Balaji; Batra, Ranjan; Huelga, Stephanie C.; Chun, Seung J.; Liang, Tiffany Y.; Chang, Jeremy; Donohue, John P.; Shiue, Lily; Zhang, Jiayu; Zhu, Haining; Cambi, Franca; Kasarskis, Edward; Hoon, Shawn; Ares Jr., Manuel; Ravits, John; Rigo, Frank; Yeo, Gene W.; Freese, Peter Dale; Lambert, Nicole; Burge, Christopher B (Nature Publishing Group, 2016-07)
    The RNA-binding protein (RBP) TAF15 is implicated in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). To compare TAF15 function to that of two ALS-associated RBPs, FUS and TDP-43, we integrate CLIP-seq and RNA Bind-N-Seq technologies, ...
  • Norman-Haignere, Samuel Victor; Kanwisher, Nancy; McDermott, Joshua H. (Elsevier/Cell Press, 2015-12)
    The organization of human auditory cortex remains unresolved, due in part to the small stimulus sets common to fMRI studies and the overlap of neural populations within voxels. To address these challenges, we measured fMRI ...
  • Guth, Lawrence (Springer US, 2014-12)
    We give a shorter proof of a slightly weaker version of a theorem from Guth and Katz (Ann Math 181:155–190, 2015): we prove that if L is a set of L lines in R[superscript 3] with at most L[superscript 1/2] lines in any ...
  • Xu, Min; Chang, Chun Qi; Tan, Li Hai; Baldauf, Daniel; Desimone, Robert (American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), 2017-07)
    A large body of previous neuroimaging studies suggests that multiple languages are processed and organized in a single neuroanatomical system in the bilingual brain, although differential activation may be seen in some ...
  • Archary, D; Seaton, K E; Passmore, J S; Werner, L; Deal, A; Yates, N L; Bergin, P; Liebenberg, L J; Samsunder, N; Mureithi, M W; Altfeld, M; Garrett, N; Abdool Karim, Q; Abdool Karim, S S; Morris, L; Tomaras, G D; Dunphy, Laura J.; Arnold, Kelly Benedict; Lauffenburger, Douglas A (Nature Publishing Group, 2016-01)
    The impact of topical antiretrovirals for pre-exposure prophylaxis on humoral responses following HIV infection is unknown. Using a binding antibody multiplex assay, we investigated HIV-specific IgG and IgA responses to ...
  • King, A. L.; Miller, J. M.; Cackett, E. M.; Fabian, Andrew C.; Markoff, Sera B.; Rupen, M.; Reynolds, M. T.; Nowak, Michael A.; Gultekin, K. (IOP Publishing, 2010-02)
    We report on the results of a simultaneous monitoring campaign employing eight Chandra X-ray (0.5-10 keV) and six Very Large Array/Extended Very Large Array (8.4 GHz) radio observations of NGC 4051 over seven months. ...
  • Bhatla, Nikhil; Droste, Rita; Sando, Steven Robert; Huang, Anne; Horvitz, Howard Robert (Elsevier, 2015-07)
    Neural circuits have long been known to modulate myogenic muscles such as the heart, yet a mechanistic understanding at the cellular and molecular levels remains limited. We studied how light inhibits pumping of the ...
  • Rago, Florencia; Gascoigne, Karen E.; Cheeseman, Iain M (Elsevier, 2015-02)
    The kinetochore provides a vital connection between chromosomes and spindle microtubules [1 and 2]. Defining the molecular architecture of the core kinetochore components is critical for understanding the mechanisms by ...
