Labelfree DNA sequence detection using oligonucleotide functionalized optical fiber
(AIP Publishing, 20061001)The authors present a labelfree method for direct detection of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) sequences. The capture DNA is immobilized onto the surface of a silica optical fiber tip by means of the layerbylayer electrostatic ... 
Lagrangian and energy forms for retrieving the impulse response of the Earth due to random electromagnetic forcing
(American Physical Society, 20110810)We distinguish between trivial and nontrivial differences in retrieving the real or imaginary parts of the Green's function. Trivial differences come from different Green's function definitions. The energy and Lagrangian ... 
landscape patterns and dispersal success: simulated population dynamics in the brown treecreeper
(Ecological Society of America, 200212)We used a spatially explicit, individualbased simulation model to explain the possible role of patch isolation in causing observed declines of Brown Treecreepers (Climacteris picumnits) in northern New South Wales, ... 
large eddy simulation of turbulent channel flows by the rational large eddy simulation model
(AIP Publishing, 200310)The rational large eddy simulation (RLES) model is applied to turbulent channel flows. This approximate deconvolution model is based on a rational (subdiagonal Pade) approximation of the Fourier transform of the Gaussian ... 
Layerbylayer selfassembled conductor network composites in ionic polymer metal composite actuators with high strain response
(AIP Publishing, 20090701)We investigate the electromechanical response of conductor network composite (CNC) fabricated by the layerbylayer (LbL) selfassembly method. The process makes it possible for CNCs to be fabricated at submicron thickness ... 
Leastsquares finite element approximations to solutions of interface problems
(Siam Publications, 199802)A leastsquares finite element method for secondorder elliptic boundary value problems having interfaces due to discontinuous media properties is proposed and analyzed. Both Dirichlet and Neumann boundary data are treated. ... 
Lentiviral and targeted cellular barcoding reveals ongoing clonal dynamics of cell lines in vitro and in vivo
(20140530)Abstract Background Cell lines are often regarded as clonal, even though this simplifies what is known about mutagenesis, transformation and other processes that destabilize them over time. Monitoring these clonal dynamics ... 
Leptonic CP violation search and the ambiguity of delta m(31)(2)
(American Physical Society, 200603)We consider a search for the CPviolating angle delta(CP) in long baseline neutrino oscillation experiments. We show that the subleading delta(CP)dependent terms in the nu(mu)>nu(e) oscillation probability can be easily ... 
Lets Talk About the Elephant in the Living Room
(EcoRes Forum, 20140122)Overpopulation is the _elephant in the living room _ the issue everyone sees but no one will address. Exponential population growth on a finite planet is neither sustainable nor desirable; however, politicians refuse to ... 
Life Boat Ethics Revisited: What Should Be the Reaction to the Maldives Crisis
(Asian Journal of Experimental Sciences, 20140122)The climate change crisis and exponential population growth have now reached a point where thinking about the unthinkable cannot be postponed. Over 30 years ago, Garrett Hardin used a lifeboat metaphor to describe the ... 
Lifeboat Ethics  To Sink, Or Not To Sink: That Is The Question
(Virginia Tech, 20140122)Hardin s lifeboat metaphor simplifies the issues involved in living on a finite planet with finite resources. If humankind hopes to remain on Earth for many generations, then humans need to understand and cope with the ... 
linear stability analysis of salt fingers with surface evaporation or warming
(AIP Publishing, 199611)Oceanic observations [Atmos. Ocean 29, 340 (1991)] have revealed smallscale thermohaline plumes near the surface of a calm sea under warming conditions. The stratification was favorable for the doublediffusive salt finger ... 
Linking neuronal brain activity to the glucose metabolism
(20130829)Abstract Background Energy homeostasis ensures the functionality of the entire organism. The human brain as a missing link in the global regulation of the complex whole body energy metabolism is subject to recent investigation. ...
