Regret Expression and Social Learning Increases Delay to Sexual Gratification
Objective Modification and prevention of risky sexual behavior is important to individuals’ health and public health policy. This study employed a novel sexual discounting task to elucidate the effects of social learning ...
Understanding uncertainty in temperature effects on vector-borne disease: a Bayesian approach
(Ecological Society of America, 2015)
Extrinsic environmental factors influence the distribution and population dynamics of many organisms, including insects that are of concern for human health and agriculture. This is particularly true for vector-borne ...
Assessing Urban Landscape Variables’ Contributions to Microclimates
The well-known urban heat island (UHI) effect recognizes prevailing patterns of warmer urban temperatures relative to surrounding rural landscapes. Although UHIs are often visualized as single features, internal variations ...
Performance evaluation of indel calling tools using real short-read data
(Biomed Central Ltd, 2015-08-19)
Background Insertion and deletion (indel), a common form of genetic variation, has been shown to cause or contribute to human genetic diseases and cancer. With the advance of next-generation sequencing technology, many ...
'Cut from the same cloth': Shared microsatellite variants among cancers link to ectodermal tissues-neural tube and crest cells
(Impact Journals Llc, 2015-09-08)
A Bayesian Analysis of Copy Number Variations in Array Comparative Genomic Hybridization Data
(OMICS International, 2015-09-25)
Array Comparative Genomic Hybridization (CGH) has been widely used for detecting genomic copy number variations (CNVs). The central goal of array CGH data analysis is to accurately detect homogeneous regions of log intensity ...
Panamanian frog species host unique skin bacterial communities
Vertebrates, including amphibians, host diverse symbiotic microbes that contribute to host disease resistance. Globally, and especially in montane tropical systems, many amphibian species are threatened by a chytrid fungus, ...
Nonparametric Bayesian clustering to detect bipolar methylated genomic loci

Community Structure and Function of Amphibian Skin Microbes: An Experiment with Bullfrogs Exposed to a Chytrid Fungus
The vertebrate microbiome contributes to disease resistance, but few experiments have examined the link between microbiome community structure and disease resistance functions. Chytridiomycosis, a major cause of amphibian ...
