Juxtaposition of climate change contrarians and scientists in the media using Media Cloud data

Alexander Petersen
We document the media visibility and climate change research achievements of two groups of individuals representing some of the most prominent figures in their respective domains: 386 climate change contrarians (CCC) juxtaposed with 386 expert climate change scientists (CCS). These data were collected from the Media Cloud project (MC), an open data project hosted by the MIT Center for Civic Media and the Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University. Enclosed are...

A local and global sensitivity analysis of a mathematical model of coagulation and platelet deposition under flow

Kathryn Link, Michael Stobb, Jorge Di Paola, Keith Neeves, Aaron Fogelson, Suzanne Sindi & Karin Leiderman
The hemostatic response involves blood coagulation and platelet aggregation to stop blood loss from an injured blood vessel. The complexity of these processes make it difficult to intuit the overall hemostatic response without quantitative methods. Mathematical models aim to address this challenge but are often accompanied by numerous parameters choices and thus need to be analyzed for sensitivity to such choices. Here we use local and global sensitivity analyses to study a model of coagulation...

Remineralizing Enamel : A Literature Review

Carolina Karuppiah
Background: Tooth enamel is a non-living tissue, once matured it can no longer remineralization itself. Unfortunately, there are only a few studies that analyze the risks and benefits in applications towards remineralization. The objective was to examine the effectiveness and risks of synthetic applications towards remineralizing tooth enamel. Methods: Experimental trials focusing on the effect of synthetic applications on tooth enamel such as, surface hardness, surface thickness and overall effectiveness were included in this review....

TWOSTATE, a resonance Raman excitation profile and absorption spectrum simulator

Anne Kelley
This Fortran code calculates resonance Raman and absorption spectra using the time-dependent wavepacket method with two excited electronic states for a molecule with up to 30 vibronically active vibrations. The ground and excited state vibrational frequencies may be different and coordinate dependence of the electronic transition moment may be included in any number of modes, but the ground and excited state normal modes are assumed to be parallel (no Duschinsky rotation). Up to three of...

Sex, hormone status, and growth rate influence dietary isotope fractionation in laboratory rats

Sora Kim & Jessica Santollo
Stable isotope analysis of rat tissues to determine effects of gonadectomization. Four groups - female, ovarectomized, male, and castrated male - were fed a constant diet for 30 days. Fat, muscle, liver, and kidney were sampled at the experiment's end while serum and blood were sampled at days 0, 1, and 30. We found that sex and removal of gonadal hormones are factors either individually or interactive for carbon and nitrogen stable isotope composition in...

CoreShellShell, a quantum dot excitonic energy and charge density calculator

Anne Kelley
This program calculates electron and hole charge distributions for a spherical semiconductor quantum dot that may have up to three different materials in concentric shells (core-barrier-shell), each with different valence and/or conduction band potentials. It calculates the four lowest s-type (zero angular momentum) electron wavefunctions and the eight lowest s-type hole wavefunctions using the effective mass approximation particle in a sphere model. It then uses the excitons produced from these pairs of single-particle wavefunctions as...

A mathematical model of flow-mediated coagulation identifies factor V as a modifier of thrombin generation in hemophilia A

Michael Stobb, Kathryn Link, Matthew Sorrells, Maria Bortot, Katherine Ruegg, Marilyn Manco-Johnson, Jorge DiPaola, Suzanne Sindi, Aaron Fogelson, Karin Leiderman & Keith Neeves
Hemophilia A is a bleeding disorder categorized as severe, mild, and moderate deficiencies in factor VIII (FVIII). Within these categories the variance in bleeding severity is significant and the origins unknown. The number of parameters that could modify bleeding are so numerous that experimental approaches are not feasible for considering all possible combinations. Consequently, we turn to a mathematical model of coagulation under flow to act as a screening tool to identify parameters that are...

Linguistic laws in speech: the case of Catalan and Spanish

Ivan González Torre, Antoni Hernández-Fernández, Juan-María Garrido & Lucas Lacasa
In this work we explore in an oral corpus of Catalan and Spanish (Glissando Corpus) four classical linguistic laws (Zipf's law, Herdan's law, Brevity law, and Menzerath-Altmann's law) in oral communication, both in physical units and in symbolic units measured in speech transcriptions, and we also reviewed two more laws recently reformulated: lognormality law and size-rank law. Our results reinforce with empirical evidence in two more languages the 'physical hypothesis' according to which linguistic laws...

Reannotation of CCA-ends, initiator tRNAs, and other CAU-anticodon tRNAs of prokaryotic genomes in tRNAdb-CE 0.8

David H. Ardell & Ya-Ming Hou
Background: While the CCA sequence at the mature 3′ end of tRNAs is conserved and critical for translational function, a genetic template for this sequence is not always contained in tRNA genes. In eukaryotes and archaea, the CCA ends of tRNAs are synthesized post-transcriptionally by CCA-adding enzymes. In bacteria, tRNA genes template CCA sporadically. Results: In order to understand the variation in how prokaryotic tRNA genes template CCA, we re-annotated tRNA genes in tRNAdb-CE database...

Large dataset of disambiguated publication profiles for studying researcher mobility

Alexander Petersen
Researcher mobility facilitates the exchange of scientific, institutional, and cultural knowledge. Yet whether globalization and advances in virtual communication technologies have altered the impact of researcher mobility is a relevant and open question. To this end, we developed and leveraged a large and internationally broad disambiguated dataset of researchers in physics over the period 1985-2009; we used the article-level metadata contained in the American Physical Society "Article and Citations dataset" as the starting point. After...

Growth rate assays reveal fitness consequences of β-lactamases

Fabian Santiago, Evin Doscher, Jay Kim, Manel Camps, Juan Meza, Suzanne Sindi & Miriam Barlow
Clinical resistance determination is critical for monitoring the spread of antibiotic resistance. However, clinical methods of detecting resistance lack the sensitivity necessary to make strong conclusions about fitness. Growth rates are a far more sensitive method of measuring resistance, but they differ from clinical methods in that a single concentration of antibiotic is used for the assay. Here we show that in spite of this key difference, the results of growth rates correlate well with...

Assessing the impact of product inhibition in a chromogenic assay

Michael Stobb, Karin Leiderman, Suzanne Sindi & Dougald Monroe
Chromogenic substrates (CS) are synthetic substrates used to monitor the activity of a target enzyme. It has been reported that some CSs display competitive product inhibition with their target enzyme. Thus, in assays where enzyme activity is continuously monitored over long periods of time, the product inhibition may significantly interfere with the reactions being monitored. Despite this knowledge, it is rare for CSs to be directly incorporated into mathematical models that simulate these assays. This...
