  • Landau, Idan; Bobaljik, Jonathan David (MIT Press, 2009-12)
    A rich literature on Icelandic syntax has established that infinitival complements of obligatory control verbs constitute a case assignment domain independent from the matrix clause, and in this differ systematically from ...
  • Friedman, Beth; Kulkarni, Gourihar; Beránek, Josef; Zelenyuk, Alla; Thornton, Joel A.; Cziczo, Daniel James (American Geophysical Union (AGU), 2011-09)
    We have studied ice formation at temperatures relevant to homogeneous and heterogeneous ice nucleation, as well as droplet activation and hygroscopicity, of soot particles of variable size and composition. Coatings of ...
  • Cziczo, Daniel James; Garimella, Sarvesh; Raddatz, Michael; Hoehler, Kristina; Schnaiter, Martin; Saathoff, Harald; Moehler, Ottmar; Abbatt, Jonathan P. D.; Ladino, Luis A. (American Geophysical Union, 2013-09)
    Water and carbon dioxide ice clouds have been observed in the Martian atmosphere where they are dynamic parts of that planet's water and carbon cycles. Many Martian atmospheric models struggle to correctly predict clouds ...
  • Roy, Nicholas; Huynh, Vu Anh (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-07)
    When a mobile robot does not have perfect knowledge of its position, conventional controllers can experience failures such as collisions because the uncertainty of the position is not considered in choosing control actions. ...
  • Lin, Yijun; Rice, John E.; Wukitch, Stephen James; Greenwald, Martin J.; Hubbard, Amanda E.; Ince-Cushman, Alexander; Lin, Liang; Marmar, Earl S.; Porkolab, Miklos; Reinke, Matthew Logan; Tsujii, Naoto; Wright, John C. (American Institute of Physics, 2009-11)
    Plasma flow drive via ICRF mode conversion (MC) has been demonstrated on Alcator C-Mod. The toroidal rotation in these D([superscript 3]He) MC plasmas is typically more than twice above the empirically determined intrinsic ...
  • Popa, Raluca Ada; Li, Frank H.; Zeldovich, Nickolai (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2013-05)
    Order-preserving encryption - an encryption scheme where the sort order of ciphertexts matches the sort order of the corresponding plaintexts - allows databases and other applications to process queries involving order ...
  • Davis, Gordon B.; Gray, Paul; Madnick, Stuart E.; Nunamaker, Jay F.; Sprague, Ralph; Whinston, Andrew (Association for Computing Machinery, 2010-12)
    Information systems as a field of intellectual inquiry is now approximately 50 years old. It has many achievements and extensive research to its credit and has established a large group of researchers and experts worldwide. ...
  • Lin, Daniel Chi-Hong; Grossman, Alan D. (Elsevier, 1998-03)
    We have identified a DNA site involved in chromosome partitioning in B. subtilis. This site was identified in vivo as the binding site for the chromosome partitioning protein Spo0J, a member of the ParB family of partitioning ...
  • Ren, Yin; Hauert, Sabine; Lo, Justin H.; Bhatia, Sangeeta N. (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2012-08)
    Tumor-targeted delivery of siRNA remains a major barrier in fully realizing the therapeutic potential of RNA interference. While cell-penetrating peptides (CPP) are promising siRNA carrier candidates, they are universal ...
  • DOUGHTY, D. M.; WU, C.-H.; NEWMAN, D. K.; Welander, Paula V.; Mehay, S.; Summons, Roger Everett (Wiley Blackwell, 2012-01)
    Hopanes preserved in both modern and ancient sediments are recognized as the molecular fossils of bacteriohopanepolyols, pentacyclic hopanoid lipids. Based on the phylogenetic distribution of hopanoid production by extant ...
  • Mandal, Debabrata; Koehrer, Caroline; Su, Dan; Babu, I. Ramesh; Chan, Clement T. Y.; Liu, Yuchen; Soll, Dieter; Blum, Paul; Kuwahara, Masayasu; Dedon, Peter C.; Rajbhandary, Uttam L. (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press/RNA Society, 2013-12)
    Most archaea and bacteria use a modified C in the anticodon wobble position of isoleucine tRNA to base pair with A but not with G of the mRNA. This allows the tRNA to read the isoleucine codon AUA without also reading the ...
  • Hautier, Geoffroy; Miglio, Anna; Ceder, Gerbrand; Rignanese, Gian-Marco; Gonze, Xavier (Nature Publishing Group, 2013-08)
    The development of high-performance transparent conducting oxides is critical to many technologies from transparent electronics to solar cells. Whereas n-type transparent conducting oxides are present in many devices, their ...
  • Bajari, Patrick; Hong, Han; Ryan, Stephen (Econometric Society / Wiley, 2010-09)
    We discuss the identification and estimation of discrete games of complete information. Following Bresnahan and Reiss (1990, 1991), a discrete game is a generalization of a standard discrete choice model where utility ...
  • Imbens, Guido W.; Newey, Whitney K. (Econometric Society, 2009-10)
    This paper uses control variables to identify and estimate models with nonseparable, multidimensional disturbances. Triangular simultaneous equations models are considered, with instruments and disturbances that are ...
  • Brooks, A. N.; Aspden, J. L.; Rio, D. C.; Brenner, S. E.; Podgornaia, Anna Igorevna (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press, 2011-08)
    RNA sequence elements involved in the regulation of pre-mRNA splicing have previously been identified in vertebrate genomes by computational methods. Here, we apply such approaches to predict splicing regulatory elements ...
  • Tyne, Daria Van; Angelino, Elaine; Barnes, Kayla G.; Rosen, David M.; Lukens, Amanda K.; Daniels, Rachel F.; Milner, Danny A., Jr.; Becker, Justin S.; Yamins, Daniel; Ndiaye, Daouda; Sarr, Ousmane; Mboup, Souleymane; Happi, Christian; Furlotte, Nicholas A.; Eskin, Eleazar; Kang, Hyun Min; Hartl, Daniel L.; Park, Daniel J.; Schaffner, Stephen F.; Neafsey, Daniel E.; Cortese, Joseph F.; Daniels, Rachel F.; Johnson, Charles A.; Shlyakhter, Ilya; Grossman, Sharon Rachel; Karlsson, Elinor K.; Birren, Bruce W.; Wiegand, Roger C.; Lander, Eric S.; Wirth, Dyann F.; Volkman, Sarah K.; Sabeti, Pardis C. (Public Library of Science, 2011-04)
    The Plasmodium falciparum parasite's ability to adapt to environmental pressures, such as the human immune system and antimalarial drugs, makes malaria an enduring burden to public health. Understanding the genetic basis ...
  • Ramirez Moreno, Steve; Tonegawa, Susumu; Liu, Xu (Frontiers Media S.A., 2014)
    With the accumulation of our knowledge about how memories are formed, consolidated, retrieved, and updated, neuroscience is now reaching a point where discrete memories can be identified and manipulated at rapid timescales. ...
  • Yamamoto, Teppei; Imai, Kosuke (Oxford University Press, 2013-01)
    Social scientists are often interested in testing multiple causal mechanisms through which a treatment affects outcomes. A predominant approach has been to use linear structural equation models and examine the statistical ...
  • Klein, Michael G.; Zwart, Peter; Bagby, Sarah C.; Cai, Fei; Chisholm, Sallie (Penny); Heinhorst, Sabine; Cannon, Gordon C.; Kerfeld, Cheryl A. (Elsevier, 2009-09)
    Bacterial microcompartments (BMCs) are polyhedral bodies, composed entirely of proteins, that function as organelles in bacteria; they promote subcellular processes by encapsulating and co-localizing targeted enzymes with ...
  • Johnson, Christopher M.; Yuqing, Chen; Lee, Heejin; Ke, Ailong; Weaver, Keith E.; Dunny, Gary M. (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2014-02)
    Anti-Q is a small RNA encoded on pCF10, an antibiotic resistance plasmid of Enterococcus faecalis, which negatively regulates conjugation of the plasmid. In this study we sought to understand how Anti-Q is generated relative ...
