Modeling Energetic Electron Nonlinear Wave-Particle Interactions with Electromagnetic Ion Cyclotron Waves
(Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2019-04-15)
Electromagnetic ion cyclotron (EMIC) waves in duskside plasmasphere and plasmaspheric plume scatter megaelectron volt electrons into the loss cone and are considered a major loss mechanism for the outer radiation belt. ...
Exploiting the CRISPR/Cas9 PAM Constraint for Single-Nucleotide Resolution Interventions
CRISPR/Cas9 is an enabling RNA-guided technology for genome targeting and engineering. An acute DNA binding constraint of the Cas9 protein is the Protospacer Adjacent Motif (PAM). Here we demonstrate that the PAM requirement ...
An Unsupervised Visual-Only Voice Activity Detection Approach Using Temporal Orofacial Features
Detecting the presence or absence of speech is an important step toward building robust speech-based interfaces. While previous studies have made progress on voice activity detection (VAD), the performance of these systems ...
Complete Genome Analysis of Three Acinetobacter Baumannii Clinical Isolates in China for Insight into the Diversification of Drug Resistance Elements
Background: The emergence and rapid spreading of multidrug-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii strains has become a major health threat worldwide. To better understand the genetic recombination related with the acquisition ...
Engineering Repressors with Coevolutionary Cues Facilitates Toggle Switches with a Master Reset
(Oxford University Press, 2019-04-24)
Engineering allosteric transcriptional repressors containing an environmental sensing module (ESM) and a DNA recognition module (DRM) has the potential to unlock a combinatorial set of rationally designed biological ...

Electron and Hole Polaron Accumulation in Low-Bandgap Ambipolar Donor-Acceptor Polymer Transistors Imaged by Infrared Microscopy
A resurgence in the use of the donor-acceptor approach in synthesizing conjugated polymers has resulted in a family of high-mobility ambipolar systems with exceptionally narrow energy bandgaps below 1 eV. The ability to ...
High-Fidelity Mapping of Repetition-Related Changes in the Parietal Memory Network
(Elsevier Inc., 2019-06-05)
fMRI studies of human memory have identified a “parietal memory network” (PMN) that displays distinct responses to novel and familiar stimuli, typically deactivating during initial encoding but robustly activating during ...
Altered Cerebellar Connectivity in Parkinson's Patients ON and OFF L-DOPA Medication
(Frontiers Research Foundation, 2015-04-21)
Although nigrostriatal changes are most commonly affiliated with Parkinson's disease, the role of the cerebellum in Parkinson's has become increasingly apparent. The present study used lobule-based cerebellar resting state ...
