  • Niles, Jacquin (Elsevier, 2012-06)
    The malarial parasite, Plasmodium falciparum, is an intracellular pathogen and partially dependent on nutrient uptake for survival. In this issue of Chemistry & Biology, Marvin et al. demonstrate that zinc is essential for ...
  • Wang, John M.; Koldewyn, Kami; Hashimoto, Ryu-ichiro; Schneider, Andrea; Le, Lien; Tassone, Flora; Cheung, Katherine; Hagerman, Paul; Hessl, David; Rivera, Susan M. (Frontiers Research Foundation, 2012-10)
    Previous functional MRI (fMRI) studies have shown that fragile X mental retardation 1 (FMR1) fragile X premutation allele carriers (FXPCs) exhibit decreased hippocampal activation during a recall task and lower inferior ...
  • Kaligineedi, Praveen; Khabbazian, Majid; Bhargava, Vijay K. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2011-08)
    Reliable detection of primary users (PUs) is an important task for cognitive radio (CR) systems. Cooperation among a few spectrum sensors has been shown to offer significant gain in the performance of the CR spectrum-sensing ...
  • Goyal, Vivek K.; Varshney, Lav Raj; Kusuma, Julius (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-08)
    A malleable coding scheme considers not only representation length but also ease of representation update, thereby encouraging some form of recycling to convert an old codeword into a new one. We examine the trade-off ...
  • Williams, Richard T.; Jiang, Hai; Pritchard, Justin Robert; Lauffenburger, Douglas A.; Hemann, Michael (Nature Publishing Group, 2010-12)
    Identifying mechanisms of drug action remains a fundamental impediment to the development and effective use of chemotherapeutics. Here we describe an RNA interference (RNAi)–based strategy to characterize small-molecule ...
  • Guo, Huili; Ingolia, Nicholas T.; Weissman, Jonathan S.; Bartel, David (Nature Publishing Group, 2010-06)
    MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are endogenous ~22-nucleotide RNAs that mediate important gene-regulatory events by pairing to the mRNAs of protein-coding genes to direct their repression. Repression of these regulatory targets leads ...
  • Bamber, Greg J.; Gittell, Jody Hoffer; Kochan, Thomas Anton; von Nordenflycht, Andrew (Sage Publications, 2009-11)
    We discuss deregulation (liberalisation) and some of the international institutions that influence the management of people in airlines. As a point of departure, we summarise contrasting models from successful ‘new entrant’ ...
  • Ng, Jeffrey; Verdi, Rodrigo; Tuna, Irem (Springer-Verlag, 2013-01)
    In this paper, we first document evidence of underreaction to management forecast news. We then hypothesize that the credibility of the forecast influences the magnitude of this underreaction. Relying on evidence that more ...
  • Goodman, Theodore H.; Neamtiu, Monica; Shroff, Nemit; White, Hal D. (American Accounting Association, 2013-07)
    Corporate investment decisions require managers to forecast expected future cash flows from potential investments. Although these forecasts are a critical component of successful investing, they are not directly observable ...
  • Sidiroglou, Stelios; Misailovic, Sasa; Hoffmann, Henry Christian; Rinard, Martin C. (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2011-09)
    Many modern computations (such as video and audio encoders, Monte Carlo simulations, and machine learning algorithms) are designed to trade off accuracy in return for increased performance. To date, such computations ...
  • Goldfarb, Avi; Tucker, Catherine Elizabeth (MIT Press, 2013-03)
    How many privacy policy updates does your credit card company send you each year? How many of them do you read through — and how many get immediately trashed? Companies often “manage privacy” and “keep consumers informed” ...
  • Ren, Charlotte R.; Hu, Ye; Hu, Yu (Jeffrey); Hausman, Jerry A. (Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS), 2011-06)
    Product variety is an important strategic tool that firms can use to attract customers and respond to competition. This study focuses on the retail industry and investigates how stores manage their product variety, contingent ...
  • You, Youngmin; Tomat, Elisa; Hwang, Kevin; Atanasijevic, Tatjana; Nam, Wonwoo; Jasanoff, Alan Pradip; Lippard, Stephen J. (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2010-05)
    A paramagnetic manganese complex of a fluorescein-based probe affords a dual-modality zinc sensor featuring an improved fluorescence dynamic range and an MRI readout.
  • Thomas, Katherine; Ono, Shuhei; Johnson, Jena E.; Webb, Samuel M.; Kirschvink, Joseph L.; Fischer, Woodward W. (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2013-06)
    The emergence of oxygen-producing (oxygenic) photosynthesis fundamentally transformed our planet; however, the processes that led to the evolution of biological water splitting have remained largely unknown. To illuminate ...
  • Thies, William; Hall, Steven; Amarasinghe, Saman P. (Association for Computing Machinery, 2009-10)
    A compressed-domain transformation is one that operates directly on the compressed format, rather than requiring conversion to an uncompressed format prior to processing. Performing operations in the compressed domain ...
  • Lozano-Perez, Tomas; Wong, Lok Sang Lawson; Kaelbling, Leslie P. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2013-05)
    Object search is an integral part of daily life, and in the quest for competent mobile manipulation robots it is an unavoidable problem. Previous approaches focus on cases where objects are in unknown rooms but lying out ...
  • Long, Maureen D.; Till, Christy B.; Druken, Kelsey A.; Carlson, Richard W.; Wagner, Lara S.; Fouch, Matthew J.; James, David E.; Grove, Timothy L.; Schmerr, Nicholas; Kincaid, Chris (American Geophysical Union (AGU), 2012-08)
    The Pacific Northwest (PNW) has a complex tectonic history and over the past ~17 Ma has played host to several major episodes of intraplate volcanism. These events include the Steens/Columbia River flood basalts (CRB) and ...
  • Chang, Jessica T.; Sive, Hazel L. (MyJoVE Corporation, 2012-12)
    Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is a protein rich fluid contained within the brain ventricles. It is present during early vertebrate embryonic development and persists throughout life. Adult CSF is thought to cushion the brain, ...
  • Gutowski, Timothy G. (Springer Science + Business Media B.V., 2011)
    A new area, called Sustainability Science, is engaging large system scientists to address the challenges that face the future of human society on planet earth. In this paper, the methods and frameworks of diverse disciplines ...
  • Stojanovic, Vladimir Marko; Joshi, Ajay J.; Batten, Christopher; Kwon, Yong-Jin; Asanovic, Krste (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-08)
    This paper presents an overview of advances in highly-integrated photonic networks for emerging manycore processors. It explores the tight interaction among logical and physical implementations of all-to-all core-to-core ...
