"Identification of yeast genes important for chromosome transmission"
Accurate transmission of chromosomes during cell division requires that chromosomes are fully replicated and free of damage prior to cell division. Furthermore, cellular processes that separate chromosomes must be functional. ...
"Implementation of a genetic screen to elucidate proteins important for chromosome transmission"
The process of cell division is highly regulated in eukaryotic cells. Failure to transmit chromosomes accurately during cell division can result in cell death or abnormal growth (e.g., tumors). Proteins that associate in ...
"Genetic analysis of the human disease-causing gene ATM in yeast Tel1 and Mec1 mutants"
Ataxia-telangiectasia (A-T) is a recessive human disorder characterized by hypersensitivity to radiation, elevated risk of cancer development, nervous degeneration, premature senescence, and immune deficiencies. A-T is ...
"Freedom Summer tragedy: how three young boys deaths spurred the President, the FBI, the media and the American people to notice the Civil Rights Movement"
(Drake University. College of Arts and Sciences. Departments of Social Sciences., 2006-04)
"Electron-impact excitation of carbon"
The B-spline R-matrix method was used to study electron-impact excitation of carbon from threshold to 60 eV. A multi-configuration Hartree-Fock method with non-orthogonal orbitals generated a very accurate target description. ...
"Characterizing reactivity of benzyl esters in sodium dodecyl sulfate micelles"
Purpose: To study the effect of changing structure of benzyl esters on its reactivity in sodium dodecyl sulfate micelles. Methods: Ester molecules with benzyl moiety were either purchased or synthesized. Alkyl groups of ...
"A Framework for agent-based computational economics in economic geography"
(Drake University. College of Arts and Sciences. Departments of the Social Sciences., 2006-04)
Economic geography is the study of how economic agents organize themselves in the economy. The name suggests that economists and geographers have been working together to build models. However, this is contrary to the ...
"Protection of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae from UV-C light"
Excessive exposure to sunlight can be harmful as the sun's ultraviolet (UV) rays cause DNA damage. If this damage is not repaired in human cells, cancer and/or cell death can result. With the incidence of skin cancer growing ...
"Assessing trauma patient risk using non-invasive indicators"
Non-invasive indicators of a trauma patient's risk of cardiovascular collapse are needed. Exhaled alveolar air (end-tidal air) and skin surface are available non-invasively and have physiologic reasons to relate to trauma ...
"Chest skin and sublingual PCO2 during hemorrhage"
Base deficit is an indicator for degree of metablic insult/oxygen debt from hemorrhage and is moratlity risk related in trauma patients. We investigated the use of less invasively available skin and sublingual partial ...
