  • Phytophthora Megakarya and Phytophthora Palmivora, Closely Related Causal Agents of Cacao Black Pod Rot, Underwent Increases in Genome Sizes and Gene Numbers by Different Mechanisms 

    Ali, Shahin S.; Shao, Jonathan; Lary, David J.; Kronmiller, Brent A.; Shen, Danyu; Strem, Mary D.; Amoako-Attah, Ishmael; Akrofi, Andrew Yaw; Begoude, B. A. Didier; ten Hoopen, G. Martijn; Coulibaly, Klotioloma; Kebe, Boubacar Ismael; Melnick, Rachel L.; Guiltinan, Mark J.; Tyler, Brett M.; Meinhardt, Lyndel W.; Bailey, Bryan A. (2017-03-01)
    Phytophthora megakarya (Pmeg) and Phytophthora palmivora (Ppal) are closely related species causing cacao black pod rot. Although Ppal is a cosmopolitan pathogen, cacao is the only known host of economic importance for ...
  • Holistics 3.0 for Health 

    Lary, David J.; Woolf, Steven; Faruque, Fazlay; LePage, James P. (MDPI AG, 2014-07-24)
    Human health is part of an interdependent multifaceted system. More than ever, we have increasingly large amounts of data on the body, both spatial and non-spatial, its systems, disease and our social and physical environment. ...
  • Using Remote Control Aerial Vehicles to Study Variability of Airborne Particulates 

    Harrison, William A.; Lary, David J.; Nathan, Brian J.; Moore, Alec G. (Libertas Academica Ltd, 2015-08-04)
    Airborne particulates play a significant role in the atmospheric radiative balance and impact human health. To characterize this impact, global-scale observations and data products are needed. Satellite products allow for ...
  • Survey on the Estimation of Mutual Information Methods as a Measure of Dependency Versus Correlation Analysis 

    Gencaga, Deniz; Malakar, Nabin K.; Lary, David J. (2015-02)
    In this survey, we present and compare different approaches to estimate Mutual Information (MI) from data to analyse general dependencies between variables of interest in a system. We demonstrate the performance difference ...
  • Low Power Greenhouse Gas Sensors for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles 

    Khan, Amir; Schaefer, David; Tao, Lei; Miller, David J.; Sun, Kang; Zondlo, Mark A.; Harrison, William A.; Roscoe, Bryan; Lary, David J. (2012-05-09)
    We demonstrate compact, low power, lightweight laser-based sensors for measuring trace gas species in the atmosphere designed specifically for electronic unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) platforms. The sensors utilize ...
