Doped semiconducting polymers have garnered vast research interest in photovoltaic, transistor, thermoelectric, and sensor applications. P3HT is a canonical semiconducting polymer that self-assembles into a mixture of crystalline and amorphous domains. Doping P3HT can increase the observed conductivity by several orders of magnitude. The vibrations of the polymer are sensitive to the local morphology of the film, and the morphology of the film changes upon doping. Vibrational neutron spectroscopy is a method for identifying vibrational...
Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders are increasingly recognized in animals. The articular disc plays a major role in TMJ disorders in people, but its role in the pathogenesis of TMJ disease in animals is not well understood. This study characterizes properties of the equine TMJ disc, including regional variation within discs as well as differences in properties associated with naturally-occurring TMJ osteoarthritis.
This data summarizes average vehicle flow as a function of occupancy for traffic sensor data available from CalTrans Performance Management System (PEMS). It's useful because it shows the behavior of traffic in congested regimes, without requiring the preprocessing of several hundred GB of the raw data.

The maintenance and direction of stem cell lineage after implantation remains challenging for clinical translation. Aggregation and encapsulation into instructive biomaterials after preconditioning can bolster retention of differentiated phenotypes. Since these procedures do not depend on cell type or lineage, we hypothesized we could use a common, tunable platform to engineer formulations that retain and enhance multiple lineages from different cell populations. To test this, we varied alginate stiffness and adhesive ligand content, then encapsulated...
Data deposition for Complex electrophysiological remodeling in postinfarction ischemic heart failureBence Hegyi & Ye Chen-Izu
Heart failure (HF) following myocardial infarction (MI) is associated with high incidence of cardiac arrhythmias. Development of therapeutic strategy requires detailed understanding of electrophysiological remodeling. However, changes of ionic currents in ischemic HF remain incompletely understood, especially in translational large animal models. Here, we systematically measure the major ionic currents in ventricular myocytes from the infarct border and remote zones in a porcine model of post-MI HF. We recorded eight ionic currents during the cell’s...
Although the early coral reef-bleaching warning system (NOAA/USA) is established, there is no feasible treatment that can minimize temperature bleaching and/or disease impacts on corals in the field. Here, we present the first attempts to extrapolate the widespread and well-established use of bacterial consortia to protect or improve health in other organisms (e.g., humans and plants) to corals. Manipulation of the coral-associated microbiome was facilitated through addition of a consortium of native (isolated from Pocillopora...
Evolution of SSR diversity from wild types to U.S. advanced cultivars in the Andean and Mesoamerican domestications of common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris)Paul Gepts
Progress in common bean breeding requires the exploitation of genetic variation among market classes, races and gene pools. The present study was conducted to determine the amount of genetic variation and the degree of relatedness among 192 selected common bean advanced cultivars using 58 simple-sequence-repeat markers (SSR) evenly distributed along the 11 linkage groups of the Phaseolus reference map. All the lines belonged to commercial seed type classes that are widely grown in the USA...
Understanding the nature of dopant dynamics in the solid state is critical for improving the longevity and stability of organic electronic devices and for optimizing the dopinginduced solubility control (DISC) patterning method. In this work, we use quasi-elastic neutron scattering (QENS) to study the dynamics of the soluble p-type molecular dopant tetrafluoromethyloxycarbonyltricyanoquinodimethane (F4MCTCNQ) in the semiconductive polymer poly(3-hexylthiophene-2,5-diyl) (P3HT). Specifically, fast dynamics (ps−ns) of the dopant, such as the methyl and the methoxycarbonyl group rotations,...
Metagenome-assembled genomes provide new insight into the microbial diversity of two thermal pools in Kamchatka, RussiaCassandra Ettinger, Laetitia Wilkins, Guillaume Jospin & Jonathan Eisen
Culture-independent methods have contributed substantially to our understanding of global microbial diversity. Recently developed algorithms to construct whole genomes from environmental samples have further refined, corrected and revolutionized understanding of the tree of life. Here, we assembled draft metagenome-assembled genomes (MAGs) from environmental DNA extracted from two hot springs within an active volcanic ecosystem on the Kamchatka peninsula, Russia. This hydrothermal system has been intensively studied previously with regard to geochemistry, chemoautotrophy, microbial isolation, and...
Genetic Patterns of Common-Bean Seed Acquisition and Early-stage Adoption among Farmer Groups in Western UgandaPaul Gepts, Erin Wilkus, Jorge Carlos Berny Mier Y Teran, Clare Mukankusi, Saarah Kuzaay & Paige Hamilton-Conaty
Widespread adoption of new varieties can be valuable, especially in developing countries, which tend to lack access to improved agricultural production technologies. However, as farmers adopt new varieties, in situ population structure and genetic diversity of their seed holdings can change drastically. Consequences of adoption are still poorly understood due to a lack of crop genetic diversity assessments and detailed surveys of farmers’ seed management practices. Common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) is an excellent model for...
Measurement and modeling of the multi-wavelength optical properties of uncoated flame-generated soot: Data from the BC2, BC3, BC3+ and BC4 studiesSara Forestieri & Christopher Cappa
Optical properties of flame-generated black carbon (BC) containing soot particles were quantified at multiple wavelengths during the BC2, BC3, BC3+ and BC4 campaigns. The particles were produced using two different flames, either an ethylene premixed flame (sampled at multiple heights above the flame front) or a methane diffusion flame. Measurements were made both for size-selected nascent soot particles and for particles that were coated (with either dioctyl sebacate, sulfuric acid or secondary organic aerosol) and...
Plot data for Falk et al 2019. Falk, N. M., A. L. Igel and M. R. Igel, 2019: The Relative Impact of Ice Fall Speeds and Microphysics Parameterization Complexity on Supercell Evolution. Monthly Weather Review https://doi.org/10.1175/MWR-D-18-0417.1
Like all organisms on the planet, environmental microbes are subject to the forces of molecular evolution. Metagenomic sequencing provides a means to access the DNA sequence of uncultured microbes. By combining DNA sequencing of microbial communities with evolutionary modeling and phylogenetic analysis we might obtain new insights into microbiology and also provide a basis for practical tools such as forensic pathogen detection. In this work we present an approach to leverage phylogenetic analysis of metagenomic...
This data set is associated with the manuscript “Establishing the Impact of Model Surfactants on Cloud Condensation Nuclei Activity of Sea Spray Aerosols” by Forestieri et al. that has been submitted to Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics. The abstract to this manuscript is provided below. By reducing surface tension (σ), surfactants present in aerosols can increase their cloud condensation nuclei (CCN) activation efficiency. However, the importance of this effect is poorly constrained. Here we present estimates...
Conformational and energetic disorder in organic semiconductors reduces charge and exciton transport because of the structural defects, thus reducing the efficiency in devices such as organic photovoltaics and organic light-emitting diodes. The main structural heterogeneity is because of the twisting of the polymer backbone that occurs even in polymers that are mostly crystalline. Here, we explore the relationship between polymer backbone twisting and exciton delocalization by means of transient absorption spectroscopy and density functional theory...
Synthesis and metabolism of steroids is highly interconnected within a tissue. The initial objective of these studies was to evaluate the influence of estrogens on the synthesis and metabolism of other steroids in the testis and other tissues. The aromatase inhibitor, letrozole, was used to inhibit testicular estrogen synthesis. Littermates from five different litters (potentially six boars from one litter) provided the testis, prostate, and liver tissues but only four boars (one from each of...
