  • Arthanari, Haribabu; Boeszoermenyi, Andras; Dashkevich, Natalia M.; Wilson-Kubalek, Elizabeth M.; Monnier, Nilah; Markus, Michelle A.; Oberer, Monika; Milligan, Ron A.; Bathe, Mark; Wagner, Gerhard; Grishchuk, Ekaterina L.; Schmidt, Jens Christopher; Cheeseman, Iain McPherson (Elsevier, 2012-10)
    To ensure equal chromosome segregation during mitosis, the macromolecular kinetochore must remain attached to depolymerizing microtubules, which drive chromosome movements. How kinetochores associate with depolymerizing ...
  • Thiru, Prathapan; Kern, David Matthew; McKinley, Kara Lavidge; Monda, Julie Kathryn; Rago, Florencia; Su, Kuan-Chung; Tsinman, Tonia; Yarar, Defne; Bell, George W.; Cheeseman, Iain McPherson (American Society for Cell Biology, 2014-05)
    The key player in directing proper chromosome segregation is the macromolecular kinetochore complex, which mediates DNA–microtubule interactions. Previous studies testing individual kinetochore genes documented examples ...
  • Cheeseman, Iain McPherson; Kern, David Matthew (Elsevier B.V., 2012-10)
    Despite the identification of multiple kinetochore proteins, their structure and organization has remained unclear. New work uses electron microscopy to visualize isolated budding yeast kinetochore particles and reveal the ...
  • Kinnan, Cynthia; Townsend, Robert (American Economic Association, 2012-05)
    Kinship networks are beneficial for smoothing consumption and investment, but the channels are not well understood. We study the financing devices used for consumption and investment by Thai households. Households that are ...
  • Merino, Aimee M.; Dugast, Anne-Sophie; Wilson, Craig M.; Goepfert, Paul A.; Alter, Galit; Kaslow, Richard A.; Tang, Jianming (Public Library of Science, 2014-06)
    Background: KIR2DS4 gene variants encode full-length and truncated protein products, with only the former serving as membrane-bound receptors to activate natural killer (NK) cells. We have previously shown that full-length ...
  • Indyk, Piotr; Price, Eric C. (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2011-06)
    We initiate the study of sparse recovery problems under the Earth-Mover Distance (EMD). Specifically, we design a distribution over m x n matrices A such that for any x, given Ax, we can recover a k-sparse approximation ...
  • Chiesa, Alessandro; Micali, Silvio; Zhu, Zeyuan Allen (The Econometric Society, 2015-09)
    We analyze the Vickrey mechanism for auctions of multiple identical goods when the players have both Knightian uncertainty over their own valuations and incomplete preferences. In this model, the Vickrey mechanism is no ...
  • Booker, A. B.; Chen, F.; Sloan, A. M.; Carraway, R. S.; Rennaker, R. L.; LoTurco, J. J.; Kilgard, M. P.; Centanni, Tracy M (Society for Neuroscience, 2016-04)
    Dyslexia is the most common developmental language disorder and is marked by deficits in reading and phonological awareness. One theory of dyslexia suggests that the phonological awareness deficit is due to abnormal ...
  • Kronheimer, P. B.; Mrowka, Tomasz S. (Oxford University Press - London Mathematical Society, 2011-12)
    For each partial flag manifold of SU(N), we define a Floer homology theory for knots in 3-manifolds, using instantons with codimension-2 singularities. In the case of SU(2), the resulting Floer homology group for classical ...
  • Byrne, Alex (Oxford University Press, 2011-04)
    Introduction We often know that we are thinking, and what we are thinking about. Here ‘thinking’ is not supposed to be an umbrella term for cognition in general, but should be taken in roughly the sense of ‘a penny for ...
  • Byrne, Alex (Cambridge University Press, 2011-11)
    As it is silly to ask somebody,‘How do you know you are in pain?’ it is equally foolish to ask, ‘How do you know that you want to go to the movies?’ Vendler, Res Cogitans Knowing that one wants to go to the movies is ...
  • Byrne, Alex (Oxford University Press, 2012-06)
    If I descry a hawk, I find the hawk but I do not find my seeing of the hawk. My seeing of the hawk seems to be a queerly transparent sort of process, transparent in that while a hawk is detected, nothing else is detected ...
  • Agarwal, Sameer; Milner, Henry; Kleiner, Ariel; Talwalkar, Ameet; Jordan, Michael; Mozafari, Barzan; Stoica, Ion; Madden, Samuel R. (Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2014-06)
    Modern data analytics applications typically process massive amounts of data on clusters of tens, hundreds, or thousands of machines to support near-real-time decisions.The quantity of data and limitations of disk and ...
  • Ferreira, Tiago Alfredo S.; El-Hani, Charbel N.; Da Silva Filho, Waldomiro Jose (Springer Netherlands, 2016-07)
    This article intends to show that the defense of “understanding” as one of the major goals of science education can be grounded on an anti-reductionist perspective on testimony as a source of knowledge. To do so, we ...
  • Vladislavleva, Ekaterina; O'Reilly, Una-May; Veeramachaneni, Kalyan (Springer US, 2012-01)
    Knowledge mining sensory evaluation data is a challenging process due to extreme sparsity of the data, and a large variation in responses from different members (called assessors) of the panel. The main goals of knowledge ...
  • Miron-Spektor, Ella; Argote, Linda; Reagans, Ray (Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences (INFORMS), 2016-09)
    Considerable research has established the superior performance of teams on which team members utilize specialized knowledge and also develop transactive processes that promote coordination. Less is known, however, about ...
  • Dresselhaus, Mildred; Wakabayashi, Katsunori; Enoki, Toshiaki; Mori, Takanori; Takai, Kazuyuki; Saito, Riichiro; Murakami, Shuichi; Yamamoto, Masayuki; Sasaki, Ken-ichi (American Physical Society, 2009-10)
    The quantum corrections to the energies of the Γ point optical phonon modes (Kohn anomalies) in graphene nanoribbons (NRs) are investigated. We show theoretically that the longitudinal optical (LO) modes undergo a Kohn ...
  • Breton, Rene P.; van Kerkwijk, M. H.; Carter, Joshua Adam; Rappaport, Saul A. (IOP Publishing, 2012-03)
    We present an analysis and interpretation of the Kepler binary system KOI 1224. This is the fourth binary found with Kepler that consists of a thermally bloated, hot white dwarf in a close orbit with a more or less normal ...
  • Barclay, Thomas; DeVore, John; Rowe, Jason; Still, Martin; Rappaport, Saul A.; Sanchis Ojeda, Roberto (IOP Publishing, 2014-03)
    Kepler planet candidate KOI-2700b (KIC 8639908b), with an orbital period of 21.84 hr, exhibits a distinctly asymmetric transit profile, likely indicative of the emission of dusty effluents, and reminiscent of KIC 1255b. ...
  • Marcolli, Matilde; Trigo Neri Tabuada, Goncalo Jorge (Cambridge University Press, 2012-10)
    In this article we prove that Kontsevich’s category NC[subscript num](k)[subscript F] of noncommutative numerical motives is equivalent to the one constructed by the authors in [Marcolli and Tabuada, Noncommutative motives, ...
