    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" 

    Lewis, Trisha; Waszgis, Michaela; Theisen-Toupal, Jesse; Sanders, Rachel; Matlack, Angela; Heck, Amber; Buising, Charisse; Henderson, LaRhee; Hopkins, James; Wall, Piper (2006-06-07)
    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 ...
  • "Implementation of a genetic screen to elucidate proteins important for chromosome transmission" 

    Bjordahl, Ryan; Davison, Rob; Hatz, Daniel; Kostelc, Kate; Larew, Robbie; Miller, Adam; Rusdianto, Eveline; Sawaya, Elizabeth; Sleister, Heidi (2006-06-07)
    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 ...
  • Complementary approaches to identify genes important for chromosome segregation 

    Bjorge, Ashley; Bryant, Andy; Lauer, Stephen; Levesque, Erin; Madsen, Rebecca; Meyer, Katy A.; Rimbey, Guy; Starkweather, Ashley; Verdick, Christopher; Watson, Bryan; Sleister, Heidi (2007-05-17)
    Faithful transmission of chromosomes during cell division is essential to the functioning of the eukaryotic cell. In humans, errors during chromosome segregation are correlated with diseases such as Down Syndrome and cancer. ...
  • Isolation of yeast genes that suppress the chromosome loss defect of 'YAC stability in mitosis' mutants. 

    Ruggle, Brian; Rusdianto, Eveline; Sleister, Heidi (2007-05-17)
    The eukaryotic cell cycle and processes that maintain genome stability occur with high fidelity. Mutations in genes important for the structure, replication, repair, and/or segregation of chromosomes are correlated with ...
  • Creating an object-oriented wireless network simulator 

    Nesheim, Skyler; Hoang, Luong (2007-05-17)
    Wireless routing protocols are currently among the most actively researched areas in computer science. There are hundreds of such protocols already established and even more under development. Wireless network simulators ...
