  • Leal, Andres Nieto; Kaliakin, Victor N. (Nueva Granada Military University | Bogota Colombia, 2016-02-04)
    The response of cohesive soils subjected to cyclic loading is affected by different factors; the most important are soil type, stress or consolidation history, and specific test conditions. To better understand the behavior ...

(Nature Publishing Group, 2017-04-12)
    Lettuce (Lactuca sativa) is a major crop and a member of the large, highly successful Compositae family of flowering plants. Here we present a reference assembly for the species and family. This was generated using ...

    Background: Indigenous populations of animals have Developmenteloped unique adaptations to their local environments, which may include factors such as response to thermal stress, drought, pathogens and suboptimal nutrition. ...
  • Walsh, Jennifer; Rowe, Rebecca J.; Olsen, Brian J.; Shriver, W. Gregory; Kovach, Adrienne I. (John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2015-12-29)
    Local environmental features can shape hybrid zone dynamics when hybrids are bounded by ecotones or when patchily distributed habitat types lead to a corresponding mosaic of genotypes. We investigated the role of ...
  • Warren, Jessica M. (Elsevier, 2016-01-09)
    Abyssal peridotites are ultramafic rocks collected frommid-ocean ridges that are the residues of adiabatic decompression melting. Their compositions provide information on the degree of melting and melt–rock interaction involved ...
  • Buonocore,Jonathan J.; Luckow,Patrick; Fisher,Jeremy; Kempton,Willett; Levy,Jonathan I. (Iop Publishing Ltd, 7/3/16)
    Electricity from fossil fuels contributes substantially to both climate change and the health burden of air pollution. Renewable energy sources are capable of displacing electricity from fossil fuels, but the quantity of ...
  • Slawinska,Anna; Hsieh,John C.; Schmidt,Carl J.; Lamont,Susan J. (Public Library Science, 10/13/16)
    Acute heat stress requires immediate adjustment of the stressed individual to sudden changes of ambient temperatures. Chickens are particularly sensitive to heat stress due to Developmentelopment of insufficient physiological ...
  • Merret, R´emy; Nagarajan, Vinay K.; Carpentier, Marie-Christine; Park, Sunhee; Favory, Jean-Jacques; Descombin, Julie; Picart, Claire; Charng, Yee-yung; Green, Pamela J.; Deragon, Jean-Marc; Bousquet-Antonelli, C´ ecile (Oxford University Press, 2015-04-06)
    The reprogramming of gene expression in heat stress is a key determinant to organism survival. Gene expression is downregulated through translation initiation inhibition and release of free mRNPs that are rapidly degraded ...

  • Okada, Nobuchika; Shafi, Qaisar (Elsevier Science BV, 2015-06-03)
    We present an inflationary model in which the Standard Model Higgs doublet field with non-minimal coupling to gravity drives inflation, and the effective Higgs potential is stabilized by new physics which includes a dark ...
  • Khatabi, Behnam; Arikit, Siwaret; Xia, Rui; Winter, Stephan; Oumar, Doungous; Mongomake, Kone; Meyers, Blake C.; Fondong, Vincent N. (BioMed Central, 2016-01-28)
    BACKGROUND: Small RNAs (sRNAs) are endogenous sRNAs that play regulatory roles in plant growth, development, and biotic and abiotic stress responses. In plants, one subset of sRNAs, microRNAs (miRNAs) exhibit tissue-dif ...
  • Pitel, F.; Abasht, Behnam; Morisson, M.; Crooijmans, R. P.; Vignoles, F.; Leroux, S.; Feve, K.; Bardes, S.; Milan, D.; Lagarrigue, S.; Groenen, M. A.; Douaire, M.; Vignal, A. (BioMed Central, 2004)
    The resolution of radiation hybrid (RH) maps is intermediate between that of the genetic and BAC (Bacterial Artificial Chromosome) contig maps. Moreover, once framework RH maps of a genome have been constructed, a quick ...
  • Jamann, Tiffany M; Sood, Shilpa; Wisser, Randall J; Holland, James B (Public Library of Science, 2017-01-03)
    Despite the reduction in the price of sequencing, it remains expensive to sequence and assemble whole, complex genomes of multiple samples for population studies, particularly for large genomes like those of many crop ...
  • Chaddock-Heyman, Laura; Mackenzie, Michael J.; Zuniga, Krystle; Cooke, Gillian E.; Awick, Elizabeth; Roberts, Sarah; Erickson, Kirk I.; McAuley, Edward; Kramer, Arthur F. (Frontiers Media S.A., 2015-08-26)
    As breast cancer treatment is associated with declines in brain and cognitive health, it is important to identify strategies to enhance the cognitive vitality of cancer survivors. In particular, the hippocampus is known ...
  • McDonald,Nathan D.; Lubin,Jean-Bernard; Chowdhury,Nityananda; Boyd,E. Fidelma (American Society Microbiology, 4/12/16)
    A major challenge facing bacterial intestinal pathogens is competition for nutrient sources with the host microbiota. Vibrio cholerae is an intestinal pathogen that causes cholera, which affects millions each year; however, ...
  • Knapp, Lauren; Ladenburg, Jacob (MDPI AG, 2015-06-23)
    An increasing number of studies in the environmental and resource economic literature suggest that preferences for changes or improvements in environmental amenities, from water quality to recreation, are spatially ...

    Olivine, orthopyroxene, and spinel compositions within seafloor peridotites yield important information about the nature of Earth’s mantle. Major element compositions of these minerals can be used to calculate oxygen ...
  • Kushwaha,Garima; Dozmorov,Mikhail; Wren,Jonathan D.; Qiu,Jing; Shi,Huidong; Xu,Dong (Biomed Central Ltd, 7/25/16)
    Background: Methylation changes are frequent in cancers, but understanding how hyper- and hypomethylated region changes coordinate, associate with genomic features, and affect gene expression is needed to better understand ...
