An Orange Fluorescent Protein Tagging System For Real-Time Pollen Tracking, J. Rice, R. Mundell, R. Millwood, O. Chambers, L. Abercrombie, H. Davies, C. Stewart

C. Neal Stewart Jr.

Background Monitoring gene flow could be important for future transgenic crops, such as those producing plant-made-pharmaceuticals (PMPs) in open field production. A Nicotiana hybrid (Nicotiana. tabacum × Nicotiana glauca) shows limited male fertility and could be used as a bioconfined PMP platform. Effective assessment of gene flow from these plants is augmented with methods that utilize fluorescent proteins for transgenic pollen identification. Results We report the generation of a pollen tagging system utilizing an orange fluorescent protein to monitor pollen flow and as a visual assessment of transgene zygosity of the parent plant. This system was created to generate a tagged ...

Real-Time Stealth Intervention For Motor Learning Using Player Flow-State, Ramin Tadayon, Ashish Amresh, Troy Mcdaniel, Sethuraman Panchanathan Jun 2019

Real-Time Stealth Intervention For Motor Learning Using Player Flow-State, Ramin Tadayon, Ashish Amresh, Troy Mcdaniel, Sethuraman Panchanathan

Ashish Amresh

We present a novel approach to real-time adaptation in serious games for at-home motor learning. Our approach assesses and responds to the “flow-state” of players by tracking and classifying facial emotions in real-time using the Kinect camera. Three different approaches for stealth assessment and adaptation using performance and flow-state data are defined, along with a case-study evaluation of these approaches based on their effectiveness at maintaining positive affective interaction in a subject.

Fiscal Reform Scenarios And Accessibility 2018.08.20.Docx, Guillermo Fernandez Nov 2018

Fiscal Reform Scenarios And Accessibility 2018.08.20.Docx, Guillermo Fernandez

Guillermo Fernandez

Since signing the peace accords in 1996, the Guatemalan government committed to increase the tax burden of 1995 by 50% to a total of 13%. This target has only been reached 4 times in more than two decades. There have been multiple attempts at tax reforms that have failed or been incomplete. Guatemala exhibits much income inequality and is one of the poorest countries in the region.  
Given this background, the problem to be considered in this analysis is that there is little information regarding how different tax reforms would affect the accessibility to food in Guatemala. With information regarding ...


Freshwater Aquaculture And Its Permitting In Rhode Island: Two Case Studies, Michael A. Rice, Joseph B. Haberek, David Beutel Nov 2018

Freshwater Aquaculture And Its Permitting In Rhode Island: Two Case Studies, Michael A. Rice, Joseph B. Haberek, David Beutel

Michael A Rice

In Rhode Island permits to conduct aquaculture, including freshwater aquaculture, are issued by the Coastal Resources Management Council (CRMC) as the designated lead agency by state law. However, by Rhode Island law, aquaculture is considered a form of agriculture. It is the responsibility and duty of the state aquaculture coordinator in CRMC to receive aquaculture applications and coordinate the review of these applications through the multiple federal, state and local agencies that hold regulatory jurisdiction. Since most freshwater aquaculture is conducted on private lands rather than in public trust waters of the state, there is no leasing review. If the ...

Cognition presents evolutionary research with one of its greatest challenges. Cognitive evolution has been explained at the proximate level by shifts in absolute and relative brain volume and at the ultimate level by differences in social and dietary complexity. However, no study has integrated the experimental and phylogenetic approach at the scale required to rigorously test these explanations. Instead, previous research has largely relied on various measures of brain size as proxies for cognitive abilities. We experimentally evaluated these major evolutionary explanations by quantitatively comparing the cognitive performance of 567 individuals representing 36 species on two problem-solving tasks measuring self-control ...


Memory-Based Quantity Discrimination In Coyotes (Canis Latrans), Salif Mahamane, Kevin L. Grunig, Joseph Baker, Julie K. Young, Kerry E. Jordan Oct 2018

Memory-Based Quantity Discrimination In Coyotes (Canis Latrans), Salif Mahamane, Kevin L. Grunig, Joseph Baker, Julie K. Young, Kerry E. Jordan

Kerry E. Jordan

Previous research has shown that the ratio between competing quantities of food significantly mediates coyotes‘ (Canis latrans) ability to choose the larger of two food options. These previous findings are consistent with predictions made by Weber‘s Law and indicate that coyotes possess quantity discrimination abilities that are similar to other species. Importantly, coyotes‘ discrimination abilities are similar to domestic dogs (Canis lupus familiaris), indicating that quantitative discrimination may remain stable throughout certain species‘ evolution. However, while previously shown in two domestic dogs, it is unknown whether coyotes possess the ability to discriminate visual quantities from memory. Here, we address ...

A Coalescent Sampler Successfully Detects Biologically Meaningful Population Structure Overlooked By F‐Statistics, Eric Crandall, Robert J. Toonen, Kimberly Selkoe Oct 2018

A Coalescent Sampler Successfully Detects Biologically Meaningful Population Structure Overlooked By F‐Statistics, Eric Crandall, Robert J. Toonen, Kimberly Selkoe

Eric Crandall

Assessing the geographic structure of populations has relied heavily on Sewell Wright’s F‐statistics and their numerous analogues for many decades. However, it is well appreciated that, due to their nonlinear relationship with gene flow, F‐statistics frequently fail to reject the null model of panmixia in species with relatively high levels of gene flow and large population sizes. Coalescent genealogy samplers in-stead allow a model‐selection approach to the characterization of population struc-ture, thereby providing the opportunity for stronger inference. Here, we validate the use of coalescent samplers in a high gene flow context using simulations of a ...

Proteomic Profiling Of Serum Derived Exosomes From Prostate Cancer Patients, David Turay Oct 2018

Proteomic Profiling Of Serum Derived Exosomes From Prostate Cancer Patients, David Turay

David Turay, MD

Touted among the major achievements in the diagnosis and management of Prostate cancer (PCa) in the past few decades has been, the dramatic decline of men with advanced/metastatic PCa at diagnosis coupled with a significant improvement ( >90%) in the five and ten year survival rates of the disease. Non-palpable PCa (potentially clinically treatable disease) now accounts for 70-80% of all newly diagnosed cases of PCa. Preceding these changes by about a decade was the introduction of Prostatic Specific Antigen (PSA) into clinical practice; first as biomarker for monitoring response to therapy and subsequently as a complementary screening tool. It ...

Inference Of Genetic Regulatory Networks With Recurrent Neural Network Models Using Particle Swarm Optimization, Rui Xu, Donald C. Wunsch, Ronald L. Frank Oct 2018

Inference Of Genetic Regulatory Networks With Recurrent Neural Network Models Using Particle Swarm Optimization, Rui Xu, Donald C. Wunsch, Ronald L. Frank

Donald C. Wunsch

Genetic regulatory network inference is critically important for revealing fundamental cellular processes, investigating gene functions, and understanding their relations. The availability of time series gene expression data makes it possible to investigate the gene activities of whole genomes, rather than those of only a pair of genes or among several genes. However, current computational methods do not sufficiently consider the temporal behavior of this type of data and lack the capability to capture the complex nonlinear system dynamics. We propose a recurrent neural network (RNN) and particle swarm optimization (PSO) approach to infer genetic regulatory networks from time series gene ...


A General Recurrent Neural Network Approach To Model Genetic Regulatory Networks, Xiao Hu, Ann M. Maglia, Donald C. Wunsch Oct 2018

A General Recurrent Neural Network Approach To Model Genetic Regulatory Networks, Xiao Hu, Ann M. Maglia, Donald C. Wunsch

Donald C. Wunsch

There is an urgent need for tools to unravel the complex interactions and functionalities of genes. As such, there has been much interest in reverse-engineering genetic regulatory networks from time series gene expression data. We use an artificial neural network to model the dynamics of complicated gene networks and to learn their parameters. The positive and negative regulations of genes are defined by a weight matrix, and different genes are allowed to have different decaying time constants. We demonstrate the effectiveness of the method by recreating the SOS DNA Repair network of Escherichia coli bacterium, previously discovered through experimental data.


Cd105 Deficiency In Mouse Aorta-Derived Progenitor Cells Promotes An Enhanced Inflammatory Response To Lipopolysaccharide, Joseph Granata, Hugo Sanchez, Phillip Loeschinger, Jodi F. Evans Ph.D. Sep 2018

Cd105 Deficiency In Mouse Aorta-Derived Progenitor Cells Promotes An Enhanced Inflammatory Response To Lipopolysaccharide, Joseph Granata, Hugo Sanchez, Phillip Loeschinger, Jodi F. Evans Ph.D.

Jodi Evans

Mesenchymal progenitor cells are widely studied for their ability to regulate macrophage cell responses and can be suppressive or supportive during an inflammatory response. Mouse aorta-derived progenitors (mAo) support the macrophage inflammatory response and highly express CD105, also known as endoglin. Elevated CD105 expression is consistently associated with inflammatory disease. Therefore, we hypothesized that suppression of CD105 will reduce the immunosupportive capacity of mAo mesenchymal progenitors. We used siRNA to reduce expression of CD105 in mAo cells. We subsequently examined the effect of this deficiency in their response to both lipopolysaccharide (LPS) and their ability to support the macrophage inflammatory ...

Phenotypic Screening Identifies Brefeldin A/Ascotoxin As An Inducer Of Lipid Storage In The Algae Chlamydomonas Reinhardtii, Nishikant Wase, Boqiang Tu, Paul N. Black, Concetta C. Dirusso Sep 2018

Phenotypic Screening Identifies Brefeldin A/Ascotoxin As An Inducer Of Lipid Storage In The Algae Chlamydomonas Reinhardtii, Nishikant Wase, Boqiang Tu, Paul N. Black, Concetta C. Dirusso

Nishikant Wase

The use of microalgae as a biofuel feedstock is highly desired, but current methods to induce lipid accumulation cause severe stress responses that limit biomass and, thus oil yield. To address these issues, a high throughput screening (HTS) method was devised to identify chemical inducers of growth and lipid accumulation. Optimization was performed to determine the most effective cell density, DMSO and Nile Red (NR) concentrations to monitor growth and lipid accumulation. The method was tested using 1717 compounds from National Cancer Institute (NCI) Diversity Set III and Natural Products Set II in Chlamydomonas reinhardtii. Cells were inoculated at low ...

Teens As Teachers In The Garden: Cultivating A Sustainable Model For Teaching Healthy Living, Virginia L.J. Bolshakova, John Gieng, C. Sheena Sidhu, Mary Vollinger, Lorena Gimeno, Jessica Guild

John Sin H. Gieng

School gardens are an ideal space to deliver a healthy living curriculum, such as nutrition and physical activity education, to elementary school youth. However, public schools often lack the resources and support to establish sustainable garden-based programming. We created the Healthy Living Ambassador program, a collaborative after-school garden program in low-income communities that brought together resources from schools, community programs, and University of California Cooperative Extension. This school garden program featured culturally competent teens as teachers to serve as near-peer educators and mentors to elementary school youth. The program development model incorporated lessons from sustainable community-based health program interventions and ...
