  • Juels, Ari; Rivest, Ronald L. (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2013-11)
    We propose a simple method for improving the security of hashed passwords: the maintenance of additional ``honeywords'' (false passwords) associated with each user's account. An adversary who steals a file of hashed passwords ...
  • Ge, Xuecai; Frank, Christopher Lee; Calderon de Anda, Froylan; Tsai, Li-Huei (Elsevier, 2010-01)
    Centrosome functions are important in many brain developmental processes. Proper functioning of the centrosome relies on assembly of protein components into the pericentriolar material. This dynamic assembly is mediated ...
  • Yazdani, Navid; List, Nancy B.; Hutchenson, Dwight K.; Royster, Thomas C., IV; Shoup, Ryan C. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2010-01)
  • Polz, Martin F.; Alm, Eric J.; Hanage, William P. (Elsevier, 2013-01)
    Many bacterial and archaeal lineages have a history of extensive and ongoing horizontal gene transfer and loss, as evidenced by the large differences in genome content even among otherwise closely related isolates. How ...
  • Aingaran, Mythili; Zhang, Rou; Law, Sue KaYee; Peng, Zhangli; Undisz, Andreas; Meyer, Evan; Diez Silva, Monica; Burke, Thomas A.; Spielmann, Tobias; Lim, Chwee Teck; Suresh, Subra; Dao, Ming; Marti, Matthias (Wiley-Blackwell Publishers, 2012-07)
    Gametocyte maturation in Plasmodium falciparum is a critical step in the transmission of malaria. While the majority of parasites proliferate asexually in red blood cells, a small fraction of parasites undergo sexual ...
  • Itoe, Maurice A.; Cabal, Ghislain G.; Real, Eliana; Zuzarte-Luis, Vanessa; Bhatia, Sangeeta N.; Frischknecht, Friedrich; Thiele, Christoph; Shevchenko, Andrej; Mota, Maria M.; Sampaio, Julio L.; March-Riera, Sandra; Bhatia, Sangeeta N. (Elsevier, 2014-12)
    During invasion, Plasmodium, the causative agent of malaria, wraps itself in a parasitophorous vacuole membrane (PVM), which constitutes a critical interface between the parasite and its host cell. Within hepatocytes, each ...
  • Park, Woon Ik; Kim, YongJoo; Jeong, Jae Won; Kim, Kyungho; Yoo, Jung-Keun; Hur, Yoon Hyung; Kim, Jong Min; Thomas, Edwin L.; Alexander-Katz, Alfredo; Jung, Yeon Sik (Nature Publishing Group, 2013-11)
    Ultrafine, uniform nanostructures with excellent functionalities can be formed by self-assembly of block copolymer (BCP) thin films. However, extension of their geometric variability is not straightforward due to their ...
  • David, Lawrence A.; Materna, Arne; Friedman, Jonathan; Blackburn, Matthew C.; Baptista, Maria Ines; Perrotta, Allison Rose; Erdman, Susan E.; Alm, Eric J. (BioMed Central Ltd, 2014-07)
    Background: Disturbance to human microbiota may underlie several pathologies. Yet, we lack a comprehensive understanding of how lifestyle affects the dynamics of human-associated microbial communities. Results: Here, ...

  • Penterman, Jon; Abo, Ryan; De Nisco, Nicole J.; Arnold, Markus F. F.; Walker, Graham C.; Longhi, Renato; Zanda, Matteo (National Academy of Sciences (U.S.), 2014-02)
    The α-proteobacterium Sinorhizobium meliloti establishes a chronic intracellular infection during the symbiosis with its legume hosts. Within specialized host cells, S. meliloti differentiates into highly polyploid, enlarged ...
  • Gabor, Nathaniel M.; Song, Justin Chien Wen; Ma, Qiong; Nair, Nityan L.; Taychatanapat, Thiti; Levitov, Leonid; Jarillo-Herrero, Pablo; Watanabe, Kenji; Taniguchi, Takashi (American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), 2011-10)
    We report on the intrinsic optoelectronic response of high-quality dual-gated monolayer and bilayer graphene p-n junction devices. Local laser excitation (of wavelength 850 nanometers) at the p-n interface leads to striking ...
  • Ma, Qiong; Jarillo-Herrero, Pablo; Tielrooij, K. J.; Massicotte, M.; Piatkowski, L.; Woessner, A.; van Hulst, N. F.; Koppens, Frank Henricus Louis (IOP Publishing, 2015-04)
    Photoexcitation of graphene leads to an interesting sequence of phenomena, some of which can be exploited in optoelectronic devices based on graphene. In particular, the efficient and ultrafast generation of an electron ...
  • Song, Justin Chien Wen; Rudner, Mark S.; Marcus, Charles M.; Levitov, Leonid (American Chemical Society, 2011-09)
    Strong electron–electron interactions in graphene are expected to result in multiple-excitation generation by the absorption of a single photon. We show that the impact of carrier multiplication on photocurrent response ...
  • Kloosterman, J. L.; Hayton, D. J.; Ren, Y.; Hovenier, J. N.; Gao, J. R.; Klapwijk, T. M.; Walker, C. K.; Reno, J. L.; Kao, Tsung-Yu; Hu, Qing (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2013-01)
    We report on a heterodyne receiver designed to observe the astrophysically important neutral atomic oxygen [OI] line at 4.7448 THz. The local oscillator is a third-order distributed feedback quantum cascade laser operating ...
  • Jeon, Jessie S.; Chung, Seok; Kamm, Roger Dale; Charest, Joseph L. (Springer Netherlands, 2010-11)
    Clinically relevant studies of cell function in vitro require a physiologically-representative microenvironment possessing aspects such as a 3D extracellular matrix (ECM) and controlled biochemical and biophysical parameters. ...

    The presence of hot gaseous coronae around present-day massive spiral galaxies is a fundamental prediction of galaxy formation models. However, our observational knowledge remains scarce, since to date only four gaseous ...
  • Demory, Brice-Olivier; Seager, Sara; Winn, Joshua Nathan (Institute of Physics Publishing, 2011-11)
    This paper reports the discovery and characterization of the transiting hot giant exoplanet Kepler-17b. The planet has an orbital period of 1.486 days, and radial velocity measurements from the Hobby-Eberly Telescope show ...
  • Trenkle, Jonathan C.; Packard, Corinne E.; Schuh, Christopher A. (American Institute of Physics, 2010-07)
