  • Kasahara, Shunichi; Niiyama, Ryuma; Ishii, Hiroshi; Heun, Valentin Markus Josef (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2013-02)
    As domestic robots and smart appliances become increasingly common, they require a simple, universal interface to control their motion. Such an interface must support a simple selection of a connected device, highlight its ...
  • Jagielska, Anna; Wilhite, Kristen D.; Van Vliet, Krystyn J. (Public Library of Science, 2013-09)
    Axon remyelination in the central nervous system requires oligodendrocytes that produce myelin. Failure of this repair process is characteristic of neurodegeneration in demyelinating diseases such as multiple sclerosis, ...
  • Ramirez Millan, Maria; Caldara, Marina; Rusconi, Roberto; Tarasova, Yekaterina; Stocker, Roman; Ribbeck, Katharina; Billings, Amanda Nicole (Public Library of Science, 2013-08)
    Bacteria within biofilms secrete and surround themselves with an extracellular matrix, which serves as a first line of defense against antibiotic attack. Polysaccharides constitute major elements of the biofilm matrix and ...
  • Shin, Yoojin; Kim, Hyunju; Han, Sewoon; Won, Jihee; Jeong, Hyo Eun; Lee, Eun-Sook; Kim, Jae-Hong; Chung, Seok; Kamm, Roger Dale (Wiley Blackwell, 2012-11)
    Plasticity and reciprocity of breast cancer cells to various extracellular matrice (ECMs) are three-dimensionally analyzed in quantitative way in a novel and powerful microfluidic in vitro platform. This successfully ...
  • Hynes, Richard O. (American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), 2009-11)
    The extracellular matrix (ECM) and ECM proteins are important in phenomena as diverse as developmental patterning, stem cell niches, cancer, and genetic diseases. The ECM has many effects beyond providing structural support. ...
  • Naba, Alexandra; Clauser, Karl R.; Lamar, John Michael; Carr, Steven A.; Hynes, Richard O. (eLife Sciences Publications, Ltd., 2014-03)
    The extracellular matrix (ECM) is a major component of tumors and a significant contributor to cancer progression. In this study, we use proteomics to investigate the ECM of human mammary carcinoma xenografts and show that ...
  • Naba, Alexandra; Clauser, Karl R.; Whittaker, Charles A.; Carr, Steven A.; Tanabe, Kenneth K.; Hynes, Richard O. (BioMed Central Ltd., 2014-07)
    Background: Colorectal cancer is the third most frequently diagnosed cancer and the third cause of cancer deaths in the United States. Despite the fact that tumor cell-intrinsic mechanisms controlling colorectal carcinogenesis ...
  • Clauser, Karl R.; Carr, Steven A.; Naba, Alexandra; Ding, Huiming; Whittaker, Charles A; Hynes, Richard O (Elsevier, 2015-06)
    The extracellular matrix (ECM) is a fundamental component of multicellular organisms that provides mechanical and chemical cues that orchestrate cellular and tissue organization and functions. Degradation, hyperproduction ...
  • Reckman, Hilke; Orkin, Jeffrey David; Roy, Deb K. (Association for Computing Machinery, 2011-01)
    We use data from a virtual world game for automated learning of words and grammatical constructions and their meanings. The language data are an integral part of the social interaction in the game and consist of chat ...
  • Jere, Shashank; Dauwels, Justin; Asif, Muhammad Tayyab; Vie, Nikola Mitro; Cichocki, Andrzej; Jaillet, Patrick (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2014-12)
    With the rise in the population of the world's cities, understanding the dynamics of commuters' transportation patterns has become crucial in the planning and management of urban facilities and services. In this study, we ...
  • Li, Jinglai; Kath, William L. (Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, 2012-04)
    We describe an iterative method that extracts the underlying soliton from a noisy pulse. The method is formulated as a functional iteration: at each step, the soliton component of the difference between the noisy pulse and ...
  • Marshall, Lisa Faye; Cui, Jian; Brokmann, Xavier; Bawendi, Moungi G. (American Physical Society, 2010-07)
    Fluorescence spectroscopy of single chromophores immobilized on a substrate has provided much fundamental insight, yet the spectral line shapes and dynamics of single chromophores freely diffusing in solution have remained ...
  • Szeto, Gregory (Nature Publishing Group, 2016-09)
    Gene expression data are accumulating exponentially in public repositories. Reanalysis and integration of themed collections from these studies may provide new insights, but requires further human curation. Here we report ...
  • Teherani, James T.; Chern, Winston; Antoniadis, Dimitri A.; Hoyt, Judy L.; Ruiz, Liliana; Poweleit, Christian D.; Menendez, Jose (American Physical Society, 2012-05)
    Metal-oxide-semiconductor capacitors were fabricated on type-II staggered gap strained-Si/strained-Ge heterostructures epitaxially grown on relaxed SiGe substrates of various Ge fractions. Quasistatic quantum-mechanical ...

  • Wu, You; Picard, Mathieu; Baelden, Camille; Slocum, Alexander H.; Chang, Le (American Nuclear Society, 2014-11)
    Uranium present in low concentration in ocean water has the potential to greatly augment the current fuel reserve for nuclear power generation, but the challenge of extracting it economically remains. Two new designs of ...
  • Brar, B.; Kim, D. H.; del Alamo, Jesus A.; Antoniadis, Dimitri A. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-03)
    We have experimentally extracted the virtual-source electron injection velocity, vx0, of various III-V HFETs at room temperature. This is the carrier velocity that matters for logic applications of these transistors. Sub-100 ...
  • Gu, Gen; Sun, Shu-yuan; Xu, Jun; Shen, Yong; Zhang, Shu-yi; Maznev, Alexei; Fang, Nicholas Xuanlai (IOP Publishing, 2015-04)
    Recently, Lemoult et al (2011 Phys. Rev. Lett. 107 064301) used time reversal to focus sound above an array of soda cans into a spot much smaller than the acoustic wavelength in air. In this study, we show that equally ...
  • Pfahl, Stephan; Singh, Martin S.; O'Gorman, Paul (American Meteorological Society, 2015-12)
    Cyclones are a key element of extratropical weather and frequently lead to extreme events like wind storms and heavy precipitation. Understanding potential changes of cyclone frequency and intensity is thus essential for ...
  • Conlon, David; Fox, Jacob; Zhao, Yufei (Elsevier, 2014-02)
    Szemeredi's regularity lemma is a fundamental tool in extremal combinatorics. However, the original version is only helpful in studying dense graphs. In the 1990s, Kohayakawa and Rodl proved an analogue of Szemeredi's ...
