This work uncovers that the function of RIF1 in DNA Double-Strand Break repair is likely mediated through the Single-Strand Annealing form of Homology-Directed Repair
A Hybrid Photometric and Spectral Algorithm for Efficient Detection of Gravitationally Lensed Quasars
A novel method was developed to identify gravitationally lensed quasars, consisting of a morphological algorithm directed at finding wide-separation lens candidates and a point spread function (PSF)-difference-based algorithm aimed at identifying close-separation lens candidates.
This research looked at how Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis, a fungal pathogen that infects amphibians, is able to suppress immune function.
Carbon and Oxygen Isotope Analysis to Document Childhood Diet and Local vs. Non-Local Status among African Slave Burials from the Grassmere Plantation, Nashville, Tennessee
Carbon and oxygen isotope analyses of human teeth from a captive slave population from the Grassmere Plantation in Nashville, Tennessee.
Experimental validation of theoretical results from a previously proposed traveling wave ion mobility model.
Evaluation of Bigby Cannon Limestone’s Contributions to Pedogenesis Using Element Mass Flux Calculations
Bigby Cannon Limestone was analyzed to see if it contributes to soil development in Middle Tennessee.
Investigation of the Structure-Activity Relationship of a Dopamine Receptor 4 Antagonist to Treat Cocaine Addiction
This study demonstrates the successful synthesis of drug candidates for potential use as PET tracers and in vivo tool compounds to study and potentially treat cocaine addiction.
Cell Shape Changes During Drosophila Germ Band Retraction: To-wards Model Validation by Experimental Comparison
This project seeks to experimentally validate simulated predictions of forces in a Drosophila embryo during germ band retraction.
The Effect of Trastuzumab, Paclitaxel, and XL147 Treatment on Aerobic Glycolysis in Breast Cancer Cells
This study evaluated the impact of select cancer treatments on the metabolic glucose consumption and lactate production of breast cancer cells.
