A fuzzy consensus building framework for early alignment of construction project teams on the extent of their roles and responsibilitiesDownload
This thesis presents a Fuzzy Consensus Building Framework (FCBF), which enables construction project parties to align their teams on their roles and responsibilities early on in their projects. The framework introduces a model that (1) incorporates consensus of construction project teams in...
Expansion of ruminant-specific microRNAs shapes target gene expression divergence between ruminant and non-ruminant speciesDownload
Background Understanding how species-specific microRNAs (miRNAs) contribute to species-specific phenotypes is a central topic in biology. This study aimed to elucidate the role of ruminant-specific miRNAs in shaping mRNA expression divergence between ruminant and non-ruminant species. ...
Grapheme-to-phoneme conversion (G2P) is the task of converting a word, represented by a sequence of graphemes, to its pronunciation, represented by a sequence of phonemes. The G2P task plays a crucial role in speech synthesis systems, and is an important part of other applications, including...
Identification of a putative quantitative trait nucleotide in guanylate binding protein 5 for host response to PRRS virus infectionDownload
Choi, I., Guan, L., Plastow, G. S., Liu, P., Koltes, J. E., Loyd, H., Boddicker, N. J., Eisley, C. J., Schroyen, M., Bao, H., Dekkers, J. C. M., Kommadath, A., Abrams, S. M., Reecy, J. M., Rowland, R. R. R., Serão, N. V. L., Lunney, J. K., Carpenter, S., Stothard, P., Fritz-Waters, E., Tuggle, C. K.
Background Previously, we identified a major quantitative trait locus (QTL) for host response to Porcine Respiratory and Reproductive Syndrome virus (PRRSV) infection in high linkage disequilibrium (LD) with SNP rs80800372 on Sus scrofa chromosome 4 (SSC4). Results Within this QTL,...
Local Mobile Gene Pools Rapidly Cross Species Boundaries To Create Endemicity within Global Vibrio cholerae PopulationsDownload
Vibrio cholerae represents both an environmental pathogen and a widely distributed microbial species comprised of closely related strains occurring in the tropical to temperate coastal ocean across the globe (Colwell RR, Science 274:2025–2031, 1996; Griffith DC, Kelly-Hope LA, Miller MA, Am. J....
Microstructural Changes in Noncoding Chloroplast DNA: Interpretation, Evolution, and Utility of Indels and Inversions in Basal Angiosperm Phylogenetic InferenceDownload
Microstructural changes in several very slowly evolving chloroplast introns and intergenic spacers were characterized across a broad range of angiosperms, including most of the major basal lineages. Insertion/ deletion events (indels) in the surveyed noncoding regions of the large inverted repeat...
PROTEUS2: A Web Server for Comprehensive Protein Structure Prediction and Structure-Based AnnotationDownload
PROTEUS2 is a web server designed to support comprehensive protein structure prediction and structure-based annotation. PROTEUS2 accepts either single sequences (for directed studies) or multiple sequences (for whole proteome annotation) and predicts the secondary and, if possible, tertiary...
The mitochondrial genome of the hexactinellid sponge Aphrocallistes vastus: Evidence for programmed translational frameshiftingDownload
Background: Mitochondrial genomes (mtDNA) of numerous sponges have been sequenced as part of an ongoing effort to resolve the class-level phylogeny of the Porifera, as well as to place the various lower metazoan groups on the animal-kingdom tree. Most recently, the partial mtDNA of two glass...
