  • Roy, Ronald Aurele (Yale University, 1987)
    The topic of this thesis is an acoustic scattering technique for detennining the compressibility and density of individual particles. The particles, which have diameters on the order of 10 µm, are modeled as fluid spheres. ...
  • Richards, Michael Scott (Boston University, 2007)
    Neoplastic tissue is typically highly vascularized, contains abnormal concentrations of extracellular proteins (e.g. collagen, proteoglycans) and has a high interstitial fluid pres- sure compared to most normal tissues. ...
  • Campbell, David K; Singh, R. R. P; Sandvik, A. W (1997-06-05)
    A quantum Monte Carlo algorithm is constructed starting from the standard perturbation expansion in the interaction representation. The resulting configuration space is strongly related to that of the ...
  • Wesson, Daniel W; Carey, Ryan M; Verhagen, Justus V; Wachowiak, Matt (Public Library of Science, 2008-4-8)
    To gain insight into which parameters of neural activity are important in shaping the perception of odors, we combined a behavioral measure of odor perception with optical imaging of odor representations at the level of ...
  • Kim, Byoung Woo; Kennedy, David N.; Lehár, Joseph; Lee, Myung Joo; Blood, Anne J.; Lee, Sang; Perlis, Roy H.; Smoller, Jordan W.; Morris, Robert; Fava, Maurizio; Breiter, Hans C. (Public Library of Science, 2010-5-26)
    BACKGROUND. Approach and avoidance behavior provide a means for assessing the rewarding or aversive value of stimuli, and can be quantified by a keypress procedure whereby subjects work to increase (approach), decrease ...
  • Oddsson, Lars IE; Karlsson, Robin; Konrad, Janusz; Ince, Serdar; Williams, Steve R; Zemkova, Erika (BioMed Central, 2007-7-10)
    BACKGROUND There is a need for effective and early functional rehabilitation of patients with gait and balance problems including those with spinal cord injury, neurological diseases and recovering from hip fractures, a ...
  • Beane, Jennifer; Sebastiani, Paola; Liu, Gang; Brody, Jerome S; Lenburg, Marc E; Spira, Avrum (BioMed Central, 2007-09-25)
    Oligonucleotide microarray analysis revealed 175 genes that are differentially expressed in large airway epithelial cells of people who currently smoke compared with those who never smoked, with 28 classified as irreversible, ...
  • Sebastiani, Paola; Montano, Monty; Puca, Annibale; Solovieff, Nadia; Kojima, Toshio; Wang, Meng C.; Melista, Efthymia; Meltzer, Micah; Fischer, Sylvia E. J.; Andersen, Stacy; Hartley, Stephen H.; Sedgewick, Amanda; Arai, Yasumichi; Bergman, Aviv; Barzilai, Nir; Terry, Dellara F.; Riva, Alberto; Anselmi, Chiara Viviani; Malovini, Alberto; Kitamoto, Aya; Sawabe, Motoji; Arai, Tomio; Gondo, Yasuyuki; Steinberg, Martin H.; Hirose, Nobuyoshi; Atzmon, Gil; Ruvkun, Gary; Baldwin, Clinton T.; Perls, Thomas T. (Public Library of Science, 2009-12-14)
    BACKGROUND. The strong familiality of living to extreme ages suggests that human longevity is genetically regulated. The majority of genes found thus far to be associated with longevity primarily function in lipoprotein ...
  • Edson, Patrick Lee (Boston University, 2001)
    A complete understanding of high-intensity focused ultrasound-induced temperature changes in tissue requires insight into all potential mechanisms for heat deposition. Applications of therapeutic ultrasound often utilize ...
  • Farny, Caleb H. (Boston University, 2004)
    Unstable arterial plaque is likely the key component of atherosclerosis, a disease which is responsible for two-thirds of heart attacks and strokes, leading to approximately 1 million deaths in the United States. Ultrasound ...
  • Dotan-Cohen, Dikla; Kasif, Simon; Melkman, Avraham A. (Oxford University Press, 2009-6-3)
    Motivation: There is a growing interest in improving the cluster analysis of expression data by incorporating into it prior knowledge, such as the Gene Ontology (GO) annotations of genes, in order to improve the biological ...
  • Zheng, Yu; Roberts, Richard J; Kasif, Simon (Public Library of Science, 2004-4-13)
    Genomic sequence variation is the hallmark of life and is key to understanding diversity and adaptation among the numerous microorganisms on earth. Analysis of the sequenced microbial genomes suggests that genes are evolving ...
  • Hu, Zhenjun; Frith, Martin; Niu, Tianhua; Weng, Zhiping (BioMed Central, 2003-1-4)
    BACKGROUND. Many readers will sympathize with the following story. You are viewing a gene sequence in Entrez, and you want to find whether it contains a particular sequence motif. You reach for the browser's "find in page" ...
  • Orsi, Renato H; Borowsky, Mark L; Lauer, Peter; Young, Sarah K; Nusbaum, Chad; Galagan, James E; Birren, Bruce W; Ivy, Reid A; Sun, Qi; Graves, Lewis M; Swaminathan, Bala; Wiedmann, Martin (BioMed Central, 2008-11-13)
    BACKGROUND: While increasing data on bacterial evolution in controlled environments are available, our understanding of bacterial genome evolution in natural environments is limited. We thus performed full genome analyses ...
  • Wang, Xuewei; Wu, Ming; Li, Zheng; Chan, Christina (BioMed Central, 2008-7-7)
    The detection and analysis of steady-state gene expression has become routine. Time-series microarrays are of growing interest to systems biologists for deciphering the dynamic nature and complex regulation of biosystems. ...
  • Shah, Vishal; Sridhar, Sriram; Beane, Jennifer; Brody, Jerome S.; Spira, Avrum (Oxford University Press, 2004-12-17)
    The SIEGE (Smoking Induced Epithelial Gene Expression) database is a clinical resource for compiling and analyzing gene expression data from epithelial cells of the human intra-thoracic airway. This database supports a ...

  • Riehl, William J.; Krapivsky, Paul L.; Redner, Sidney; Segrè, Daniel (Public Library of Science, 2010-4-1)
    Metabolic networks perform some of the most fundamental functions in living cells, including energy transduction and building block biosynthesis. While these are the best characterized networks in living systems, understanding ...
  • Ding, Chunming; Maier, Esther; Roscher, Adelbert A; Braun, Andreas; Cantor, Charles R (BioMed Central, 2004-5-5)
    BACKGROUND. For a diploid organism such as human, the two alleles of a particular gene can be expressed at different levels due to X chromosome inactivation, gene imprinting, different local promoter activity, or mRNA ...
