  • Lewin, Walter H. G. (IOP Publishing, 2012-03)
    We present ultraviolet (UV) spectroscopy and photometry of four Type Ia supernovae (SNe 2004dt, 2004ef, 2005M, and 2005cf) obtained with the UV prism of the Advanced Camera for Surveys on the Hubble Space Telescope. This ...
  • Lee, Samuel K.; Lisanti, Mariangela; Xue, Wei; Safdi, Benjamin; Slatyer, Tracy Robyn (American Physical Society, 2016-02)
    We present a new method to characterize unresolved point sources (PSs) generalizing traditional template fits to account for non-Poissonian photon statistics. We apply this method to Fermi Large Area Telescope γ-ray data ...
  • Fisher, Peter H.; Spitznagel, M.; Dujmic, Denis; Yamamoto, R. K.; Taylor, Frank E.; Sciolla, Gabriella; Zhao, M.; Cowan, Ray Franklin (American Physical Society, 2009-03)
    In a search for B→cc̅ γK decays with the BABAR detector, where cc̅ includes J/ψ and ψ(2S), and K includes K±, K[supscript S] [superscript 0], and K*(892), we find evidence for X(3872)→J/ψγ and X(3872)→ψ(2S)γ with 3.6σ and ...
  • Liua, Hesheng; Sepulcrea, Jorge; Hedden, Trey; Buckner, Randy L.; Stufflebeam, Steven M. (National Academy of Sciences, 2009-12)
    Cerebral lateralization is a fundamental property of the human brain and a marker of successful development. Here we provide evidence that multiple mechanisms control asymmetry for distinct brain systems. Using intrinsic ...
  • Ward, Lucas D.; Kellis, Manolis (American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), 2012-09)
    Although only 5% of the human genome is conserved across mammals, a substantially larger portion is biochemically active, raising the question of whether the additional elements evolve neutrally or confer a lineage-specific ...
  • Jungreis, Irwin; Lin, Michael F.; Spokony, Rebecca; Chan, Clara Sophia; Negre, Nicolas; Victorsen, Alec; White, Kevin P.; Kellis, Manolis (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press, 2011-10)
    While translational stop codon readthrough is often used by viral genomes, it has been observed for only a handful of eukaryotic genes. We previously used comparative genomics evidence to recognize protein-coding regions ...
  • Apyan, Aram; Barbieri, R.; Bauer, Gerry P.; Busza, Wit; Cali, Ivan Amos; Chan, M.; Di Matteo, Leonardo; Dutta, V.; Gomez-Ceballos, Guillelmo; Goncharov, Maxim; Gulhan, Doga Can; Klute, Markus; Lai, Yue Shi; Lee, Y.-J.; Levin, A.; Luckey, P. David, Jr.; Ma, Teng; Paus, Christoph M. E.; Ralph, Duncan Kelley; Roland, Christof E.; Roland, Gunther M.; Stephans, George S. F.; Stockli, Fabian; Sumorok, Konstanty C.; Velicanu, Dragos Alexandru; Veverka, Jan; Wyslouch, Boleslaw; Yang, M.; Yoon, A. S.; Zanetti, Marco; Zhukova, Victoria (American Physical Society, 2014-09)
    The production of jets associated to bottom quarks is measured for the first time in PbPb collisions at a center-of-mass energy of 2.76 TeV per nucleon pair. Jet spectra are reported in the transverse momentum (p[subscript ...
  • Cowan, Ray Franklin; Dujmic, D.; Sciolla, Gabriella (American Physical Society, 2013-08)
    We present a search for the decay B[superscript +]→τ[superscript +]ν using 467.8×10[superscript 6] BB̅ pairs collected at the Υ(4S) resonance with the BABAR detector at the SLAC PEP-II B-Factory. We select a sample of ...
  • Loughran, Gary; Chou, Ming-Yuan; Ivanov, Ivaylo P.; Jungreis, Irwin; Kellis, Manolis; Kiran, Anmol M.; Baranov, Pavel V.; Atkins, John F. (Oxford University Press, 2014-07)
    Stop codon readthrough is used extensively by viruses to expand their gene expression. Until recent discoveries in Drosophila, only a very limited number of readthrough cases in chromosomal genes had been reported. Analysis ...
  • Oduro, Harry D.; Cody, George D.; Farquhar, James; Harms, Brian; Kaufman, Alan J.; Sintim, Herman O. (National Academy of Sciences, 2011-10)
    Thermochemical sulfate reduction experiments with simple amino acid and dilute concentrations of sulfate reveal significant degrees of mass-independent sulfur isotope fractionation. Enrichments of up to 13‰ for [superscript ...
  • Ernst, Jason; Liu, Yaping; Sarkar, Abhishek Kulshreshtha; Kheradpour, Pouya; Kellis, Manolis (BioMed Central, 2017-10)
    Background Recombination rate is non-uniformly distributed across the human genome. The variation of recombination rate at both fine and large scales cannot be fully explained by DNA sequences alone. ...
  • Lepore, Emiliano; Marchioro, Andrea; Isaia, Marco; Pugno, Nicola M.; Buehler, Markus J. (Public Library of Science, 2012-02)
    Spider silks display generally strong mechanical properties, even if differences between species and within the same species can be observed. While many different types of silks have been tested, the mechanical properties ...
  • Taylor, Frank E. (American Physical Society, 2015-07)
    This Letter reports evidence of triple gauge boson production pp → W(ℓν)γγ + X, which is accessible for the first time with the 8 TeV LHC data set. The fiducial cross section for this process is measured in a data sample ...
  • Beatty, Anne; Liao, Scott; Weber, Joseph P. (Elsevier, 2011-12)
    We investigate delegated monitoring by examining the determinants and effects of including cross-acceleration provisions in public debt contracts. We find that cross-acceleration provision use depends on borrowers' going ...
  • Hohnloser, Stefan H.; Ikeda, Takanori; Cohen, Richard J. (Elsevier, 2008-10)
    Background: Microvolt T-wave alternans (MTWA) testing in many studies has proven to be a highly accurate predictor of ventricular tachyarrhythmic events (VTEs) in patients with risk factors for sudden cardiac death (SCD) ...
  • Morten, Christopher J.; Byers, Jeffery A.; Jamison, Timothy F. (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2011-01)
    A detailed kinetic study of the endo-selective epoxide-opening cascade reaction of a diepoxy alcohol in neutral water was undertaken using 1H NMR spectroscopy. The observation of monoepoxide intermediates resulting from ...
  • Gonçalves, Geisa A. L.; Oliveira, Pedro H.; Gomes, Ana G.; Lewis, Leslie A.; Monteiro, Gabriel A.; Jones, Kristala L.; Prazeres, Duarte Miguel (Springer Berlin Heidelberg, 2014-04)
    Insertion specificity of mobile genetic elements is a rather complex aspect of DNA transposition, which, despite much progress towards its elucidation, still remains incompletely understood. We report here the results of ...
  • Dewey, Dan; Dwarkadas, V. V.; Haberl, F.; Sturm, R.; Canizares, Claude R. (IOP Publishing, 2012-05)
    Observations of SN 1987A by the Chandra High Energy Transmission Grating (HETG) in 1999 and the XMM-Newton Reflection Grating Spectrometer (RGS) in 2003 show very broad (v-b) lines with a full width at half-maximum (FWHM) ...
