Lake thermal structure drives interannual variability in summer anoxia dynamics in a eutrophic lake over 37 years
The concentration of oxygen is fundamental to lake water quality and ecosystem functioning through its control over habitat availability for organisms, redox reactions, and recycling of organic material. In many eutrophic ...
Specialized Metabolites Reveal Evolutionary History and Geographic Dispersion of a Multilateral Symbiosis
Fungus-growing ants engage in a multilateral symbiosis: they cultivate a fungal garden as their primary food source and host symbiotic actinobacteria (Pseudonocardia spp.) that provide chemical defenses. The bacterial ...
Sterile neutrino searches at tagged kaon beams
Tagged kaon beams are attractive neutrino sources, which would provide flavor pure nu(e) beams with exactly measured normalization. We point out that this also leads to an antitagged flavor pure nu(mu) beam, with equally ...
The edge of supersymmetry: Stability walls in heterotic theory
(Elsevier Science Bv, 2009-06-22)
Raking: An Important and Often Overlooked Survey Analysis Tool
This article was developed in parallel with the article, “The Survey Process: With an Emphasis on Survey Data Analysis,” published in the June edition of PHALANX. Together these articles discuss the importance of surveys ...
The peptidoglycan-associated protein NapA plays an important role in the envelope integrity and in the pathogenesis of the lyme disease spirochete
The bacterial pathogen responsible for causing Lyme disease, Borrelia burgdorferi, is an atypical Gram-negative spirochete that is transmitted to humans via the bite of an infected Ixodes tick. In diderms, peptidoglycan ...
Phenoscape: Semantic analysis of organismal traits and genes yields insights in evolutionary biology
The study of how the observable features of organisms, i.e., their phenotypes, result from the complex interplay between genetics, development, and the environment, is central to much research in biology. The varied language ...
Exploring and Reconstructing Ancestral Anatomies using Ontology-Informed Approaches
Ancestral character state reconstruction has been long used to gain insight into the evolution of individual traits in organisms. However, organismal anatomies (= entire phenotypes) are not merely ensembles of individual ...
Potential Role of Amino Acids in the Adaptation of Chicks and Market-Age Broilers to Heat Stress
Increased average air temperatures and more frequent and prolonged periods of high ambient temperature (HT) associated with global warming will increasingly affect worldwide poultry production. It is thus important to ...
Atomic resolution tracking of nerve-agent simulant decomposition and host metal-organic framework response in real space
Gas capture and sequestration are valuable properties of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) driving tremendous interest in their use as filtration materials for chemical warfare agents. Recently, the Zr-based MOF UiO-67 was ...
