Tissue Triage and Freezing for Models of Skeletal Muscle Disease
(JOURNAL OF VISUALIZED EXPERIMENTS, 2014-07-01)
Skeletal muscle is a unique tissue because of its structure and function, which requires specific protocols for tissue collection to obtain optimal results from functional, cellular, molecular, and pathological evaluations. ...
Unsupervised Spatial Event Detection in Targeted Domains with Applications to Civil Unrest Modeling
Twitter has become a popular data source as a surrogate for monitoring and detecting events. Targeted domains such as crime, election, and social unrest require the creation of algorithms capable of detecting events pertinent ...
A Numerical Investigation of the Electric and Thermal Cell Kill Distributions in Electroporation-Based Therapies in Tissue
Electroporation-based therapies are powerful biotechnological tools for enhancing the delivery of exogeneous agents or killing tissue with pulsed electric fields (PEFs). Electrochemotherapy (ECT) and gene therapy based on ...
The Dynamics of Democracy, Development and Cultural Values
Over the past decades many countries have experienced rapid changes in their economies, their democratic institutions and the values of their citizens. Comprehensive data measuring these changes across very different ...
Bayesian Dynamical Systems Modelling in the Social Sciences
Data arising from social systems is often highly complex, involving non-linear relationships between the macro-level variables that characterize these systems. We present a method for analyzing this type of longitudinal ...
