  • Amaro, J. E.; Barbaro, M. B.; Caballero, J. A.; Donnelly, T. William (American Physical Society, 2012-04)
    We evaluate quasielastic double-differential antineutrino cross sections obtained in a phenomenological model based on the superscaling behavior of electron scattering data and estimate the contribution of the vector ...
  • Faulkner, Thomas; Liu, Hong (Elsevier, 2009-02)
    We show that open strings living on a D-brane which lies outside an AdS black hole We show that open strings living on a D-brane which lies outside an AdS black hole can tunnel into the black hole through worldsheet ...
  • Homer, Eric R.; Schuh, Christopher A. (Elsevier, 2009-03)
    A new mesoscale modeling technique for the thermo-mechanical behavior of metallic glasses is proposed. The modeling framework considers the shear transformation zone (STZ) as the fundamental unit of deformation, and ...
  • Sanghavi, Sujay; Shah, Devavrat; Willsky, Alan S. (2009-10)
    In this paper, we investigate the use of message-passing algorithms for the problem of finding the max-weight independent set (MWIS) in a graph. First, we study the performance of the classical loopy max-product belief ...
  • Giaccone, Paolo; Shah, Devavrat (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010-09)
    In the recent years, message-passing paradigm has emerged as a canonical algorithmic solution to solve networkwide problems by means of minimal local information exchange, across variety of disciplines. The primary purpose ...
  • Willsky, Alan S.; Kreidl, Olivier Patrick (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-01)
    Motivated by distributed inference applications in unreliable communication networks, we adapt the popular (sum-product) belief propagation (BP) algorithm under the constraint of discrete-valued messages. We show that, in ...
  • Johnson, Catherine L.; Purucker, Michael E.; Korth, Haje; Anderson, Brian J.; Winslow, Reka M.; Al Asad, Manar M. H.; Slavin, James A.; Alexeev, Igor. I.; Phillips, Roger J.; Zuber, Maria; Solomon, Sean C. (American Geophysical Union, 2012-12)
    We present a baseline, time-averaged model for Mercury's magnetosphere, derived from MESSENGER Magnetometer data from 24 March to 12 December 2011, comprising the spacecraft's first three Mercury years in orbit around the ...
  • Ueda, Satoshi; Fors, Brett P.; Ali, Siraj Z.; Buchwald, Stephen Leffler (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2012-02)
    A new biarylphosphine ligand, Me[subscript 3](OMe)tBuXPhos (L3), was designed as a surrogate for Me[subscript 4]tBuXPhos (L1). The Me[subscript 3](OMe)tBuXPhos could be prepared in a chromatography-free manner from inexpensive ...
  • Libert, Sergiy V.; Guarente, Leonard Pershing (Annual Reviews, 201-10)
    Most living organisms, including humans, age. Over time the ability to do physical and intellectual work deteriorates, and susceptibility to infectious, metabolic, and neurodegenerative diseases increases, which leads to ...
  • Slavov, Nikolai G.; Macinskas, Joanna; Caudy, Amy; Botstein, David (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2011-11)
    Despite rapid progress in characterizing the yeast metabolic cycle, its connection to the cell division cycle (CDC) has remained unclear. We discovered that a prototrophic batch culture of budding yeast, growing in a ...
  • Braakman, Rogier; Smith, Eric (Public Library of Science, 2014-2)
  • Rapoport, Benjamin I. (Public Library of Science, 2010-10)
    Each year in the past three decades has seen hundreds of thousands of runners register to run a major marathon. Of those who attempt to race over the marathon distance of 26 miles and 385 yards (42.195 kilometers), more ...
  • Rabani, Michal; Levin, Joshua Z.; Fan, Lin; Adiconis, Xian; Raychowdhury, Raktima; Garber, Manuel; Gnirke, Andreas; Nusbaum, Chad; Hacohen, Nir; Friedman, Nir; Amit, Ido; Regev, Aviv (Nature Publishing Group, 2011-04)
    Cellular RNA levels are determined by the interplay of RNA production, processing and degradation. However, because most studies of RNA regulation do not distinguish the separate contributions of these processes, little ...
  • Chindelevitch, Leonid; Regev, Aviv; Berger, Bonnie (Springer-Verlag, 2011)
    Metabolic networks are a representation of current knowledge about the metabolic reactions available to a given organism. These networks can be placed into various mathematical frameworks, of which the constraintbased ...
  • Vander Heiden, Matthew G.; Lunt, S. Y.; Dayton, Talya Lucia; Fiske, Brian Prescott; Israelsen, W. J.; Mattaini, Katherine Ruth; Vokes, N. I.; Stephanopoulos, G.; Cantley, L. C.; Metallo, C. M.; Locasale, J. W. (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press, 2012-01)
    Proliferating cells adapt metabolism to support the conversion of available nutrients into biomass. How cell metabolism is regulated to balance the production of ATP, metabolite building blocks, and reducing equivalents ...
  • Abubucker, Sahar; Segata, Nicola; Goll, Johannes; Schubert, Alyxandria M.; Izard, Jacques; Cantarel, Brandi L.; Rodriguez-Mueller, Beltran; Zucker, Jeremy; Thiagarajan, Mathangi; Henrissat, Bernard; White, Owen; Kelley, Scott T.; Methe, Barbara; Schloss, Patrick D.; Gevers, Dirk; Mitreva, Makedonka; Huttenhower, Curtis (Public Library of Science, 2012-06)
    Microbial communities carry out the majority of the biochemical activity on the planet, and they play integral roles in processes including metabolism and immune homeostasis in the human microbiome. Shotgun sequencing of ...
  • Suresh, Subra; Park, YongKeun; Best, Catherine A.; Auth, Thorsten; Gov, Nir S.; Safan, Samuel A.; Popescu, Gabriel; Feld, Michael S. (National Academy of Sciences, 2010-01)
    The remarkable deformability of the human red blood cell (RBC) results from the coupled dynamic response of the phospholipid bilayer and the spectrin molecular network. Here we present quantitative connections between ...
  • Zhou, Kang; Zou, Ruiyang; Stephanopoulos, Gregory; Too, Heng-Phon (Public Library of Science, 2012-11)
    Isoprenoids are natural products that are all derived from isopentenyl diphosphate (IPP) and dimethylallyl diphosphate (DMAPP). These precursors are synthesized either by the mevalonate (MVA) pathway or the 1-Deoxy-D-Xylulose ...
  • Segata, Nicola; Izard, Jacques; Waldron, Levi; Gevers, Dirk; Miropolsky, Larisa; Garrett, Wendy S.; Huttenhower, Curtis (Springer (Biomed Central Ltd.), 2011-06)
    This study describes and validates a new method for metagenomic biomarker discovery by way of class comparison, tests of biological consistency and effect size estimation. This addresses the challenge of finding organisms, ...
  • Zukerberg, Lawrence R; Chung, Daniel; Fomina, Janna N; Darroudi, Firouz; Stollar, B David; Thilly, William G.; Gostjeva, Elena V.; Koledova, Vera V. (Landes Bioscience, 2014-01)
    Bell shaped nuclei of metakaryotic cells double their DNA content during and after symmetric and asymmetric amitotic fissions rather than in the separate, pre-mitotic S-phase of eukaryotic cells. A parsimonious hypothesis ...
