A qualitative look at the thermodynamics of ternary phase diagrams
In 2014, Collins’ research group embarked on experiments using Perturbed Angular Correlation (PAC) spectroscopy to measure interactions between solute atoms in ternary alloys. PAC requires a probe atom, 111In, making the ...
RETINOIC ACID SYNTHESIS AND DEGRADATION: IMPLICATIONS FOR PROPER GERM CELL DEVELOPMENT
Spermatogenesis is absolutely essential for mammalian reproduction. This highly organized and tightly controlled process is regulated, in part, by retinoic acid (RA). This essential molecule plays key roles in many aspects ...
Targeting the ethylene biosynthetic pathway to improve cherry quality
Cherry fruit have a very short harvest window, storage and shelf life. A short market life creates an absence of fruit in the off-season, compared to other stone fruit. Extended storage as a supply-stabilizing tool would ...
Imported food can serve as a fomite for antibiotic resistance genes
An analysis of locally purchased imported and domestic foods' antibiotic resistance traits: verification of present plasmids, identification of common genes, and potential public health concerns.
Misinformation and knowledge gaps related to diabetes in medical rehabilitation paitients
Knowledge assessment test scores combined with information from follow-up debriefs were used to evaluate the education needs related to diabetes among 60 medical rehabilitation patients.
Phytonutrients and genomics of organic tomatoes: soil fertility and/or plant defense
Organically fertilized tomato fruit had higher concentrations of phytonutrients and supported fewer aphids than their conventional counterpart.
Civility in the Washington State Legislature: Causes Underlying a Decline Over Time
Much effort is focused on the importance of civility in legislative discourse and debate. Civility is intended to create an environment of respect and collaboration, but the electoral process and legislative political ...
Evaluation of ion mobility mass spectrometry (IMMS) for determining the isomeric heterogeneity of bovine submaxillary mucin (BSM)
Rapid separation and analysis of isomeric species are essential steps in the analytical protocol of carbohydrate structure analysis for glycomics research. This study evaluated the use of ion mobility spectrometry (IMS) ...
