Measurement and modeling of transcriptional noise in the cell cycle regulatory network
(Landes Bioscience, 2013-10-01)
Summarizing cellular responses as biological process networks
Background Microarray experiments can simultaneously identify thousands of genes that show significant perturbation in expression between two experimental conditions. Response networks, computed through the integration ...
ICTAS Connection, January 2013
(Virginia Tech, 2013-01)
This newsletter details new developments in staff and programs for ICTAS. In this issue: A focus on sustainability across multiple disciplines.
Sequence verification of synthetic DNA by assembly of sequencing reads
Gene synthesis attempts to assemble user-defined DNA sequences with base-level precision. Verifying the sequences of construction intermediates and the final product of a gene synthesis project is a critical part of the ...
Dynamics of photoexcited carriers and spins in InAsP ternary alloys
(AIP Publishing, 2013-06)
The recent rapid progress in the field of spintronics involves extensive measurements of carrier and spin relaxation dynamics in III-V semiconductors. In addition, as the switching rates in devices are pushed to higher ...

Computational approaches for discovery of common immunomodulators in fungal infections: towards broad-spectrum immunotherapeutic interventions
Background Fungi are the second most abundant type of human pathogens. Invasive fungal pathogens are leading causes of life-threatening infections in clinical settings. Toxicity to the host and drug-resistance are two major ...
Wind Plant Aerodynamics - A Spectral Analysis for Energy Entrainment
During the first portion of this seminar, extensive PIV data collected from a scaled down 3 blade, 3 x 5 turbine array is shown. In order to understand how large-scales motions play a role in providing mean kinetic energy ...
The Facsimilist's Tale
Michael Kuczynski is an associate professor of English at Tulane University specialized in Middle English literature. His visit will focus on the relationships between physical and digital facsimiles of medieval manuscripts ...
