A Bacteriophage Tailspike Domain Promotes SelfCleavage of a Human MembraneBound Transcription Factor, the Myelin Regulatory Factor MYRF
(PLOS Biology, 20130813)Myelination of the central nervous system (CNS) is critical to vertebrate nervous systems for efficient neural signaling. CNS myelination occurs as oligodendrocytes terminally differentiate, a process regulated in part by ...

Barred Galaxies In The Abell 901/2 Supercluster With Stages
(200906)We present a study of bar and host disk evolution in a dense cluster environment, based on a sample of similar to 800 bright (MV <= 18) galaxies in the Abell 901/2 supercluster at z similar to 0.165. We use Hubble Space ... 
Bars In DiskDominated And BulgeDominated Galaxies At Z Similar To 0: New Insights From Similar To 3600 SDSS Galaxies
(200803)We present a study of largescale bars in the local universe, based on a large sample of 3692 galaxies, with 18.5 <= M(g) < 22.0 mag and redshift 0.01 <= z < 0.03, drawn from the Sloan Digitized Sky Survey. Our sample ... 
Base calling for highthroughput shortread sequencing: dynamic programming solutions
(BMC Bioinformatics, 20130415)Background: Nextgeneration DNA sequencing platforms are capable of generating millions of reads in a matter of days at rapidly reducing costs. Despite its proliferation and technological improvements, the performance of ... 
Base Calling for HighThroughput ShortRead Sequencing: Dynamic Programming Solutions
(201304)Nextgeneration DNA sequencing platforms are capable of generating millions of reads in a matter of days at rapidly reducing costs. Despite its proliferation and technological improvements, the performance of nextgeneration ... 
A Base Induced Transformation Of A 1,3Dimethyl1,3Di(1Adamantyl)Formamidinium Salt Into Beta Methyl(1Adamantyl)Amino Acrylonitriles In Aliphatic Nitriles
(2012)A novel 1,3dimethyl1,3di(1adamantyl)formamidinium perchlorate has been prepared via the VilsmeierHaack reaction of NmethylN(1adamantyl)formamide and NmethylN(1adamantyl) amine in a mixture of phosphorus ... 
Basement and Regional Structure Along Strike of the Queen Charlotte Fault in the Context of Modern and Historical Earthquake Ruptures
(201505)The Queen Charlotte fault (QCF) is a dextral transform system located offshore of southeastern Alaska and western Canada, accommodating similar to 4.4 cm/yr of relative motion between the Pacific and North American plates. ... 
Basis Pursuit Receiver Function
(201412)Receiver functions (RFs) are derived by deconvolution of the horizontal (radial or transverse) component of ground motion from the vertical component, which segregates the PS phases. Many methods have been proposed to ... 
Batch processes for faculty work
(201605)IR managers frequently run into problems with getting submissions into their systems. Getting the word out to campus about the service can be difficult and even interested faculty may not always have time to follow through ... 
Bayes And EmpiricalBayes Multiplicity Adjustment In The VariableSelection Problem
(201010)This paper studies the multiplicitycorrection effect of standard Bayesian variableselection priors in linear regression. Our first goal is to clarify when, and how, multiplicity correction happens automatically in Bayesian ... 
Bayesian Analysis Of An Anisotropic Universe Model: Systematics And Polarization
(201010)We revisit the anisotropic universe model previously developed by Ackerman, Carroll, and Wise (ACW), and generalize both the theoretical and computational framework to include polarization and various forms of systematic ... 
Bayesian Analysis Of RR Lyrae Luminosities And Kinematics
(200711)We are using a hierarchical Bayes model to analyze the distances, luminosities, and kinematics of RR Lyrae stars. Our model relates these characteristics to the raw data of proper motions, radial velocities, apparent ... 
Bayesian entropy estimators for spike trains
(BMC Neuroscience, 20130708)Poster presentation: Information theoretic quantities have played a central role in neuroscience for quantifying neural codes [1]. Entropy and mutual information can be used to measure the maximum encoding capacity of a ... 
Bayesian Estimation of Intensity Surfaces on the Sphere via Needlet Shrinkage and Selection
(2011)This paper describes an approach for Bayesian modeling in spherical datasets. Our method is based upon a recent construction called the needlet, which is a particular form of spherical wavelet with many favorable statistical ... 
Bayesian Estimation of the Discrepancy with Misspecified Parametric Models
(2013)We study a Bayesian model where we have made specific requests about the parameter values to be estimated. The aim is to find the parameter of a parametric family which minimizes a distance to the data generating density ... 
Bayesian forecasting of Prepayment Rates for Individual Pools of Mortgages
(2008)This paper proposes a novel approach for modeling prepayment rates of individual pools of mortgages. The model incorporates the empirical evidence that prepayment is past dependent via Bayesian methodology. There are many ... 
Bayesian Mixture Models for Assessment of Gene Differential Behaviour and Prediction of pCR through the Integration of Copy Number and Gene Expression Data
(PLOS One, 20130712)We consider modeling jointly microarray RNA expression and DNA copy number data. We propose Bayesian mixture models that define latent Gaussian probit scores for the DNA and RNA, and integrate between the two platforms via ... 
Bayesians Can Learn From Old Data
(200711)In a widelycited paper, Glymour (Theory and Evidence, Princeton, N. J.: Princeton University Press, 1980, pp. 6393) claims to show that Bayesians cannot team from old data. His argument contains an elementary error. I ... 
BBCA: Improving the Scalability of *BEAST Using Random Binning
(201410)Species tree estimation can be challenging in the presence of gene tree conflict due to incomplete lineage sorting (ILS), which can occur when the time between speciation events is short relative to the population size. ...
