Many students start college intending to pursue a career in the biosciences, but too many abandon this goal because they struggle in introductory biology. Interventions have been developed to close achievement gaps for underrepresented minority students and women, but no prior research has attempted to close the gap for first-generation students, a(More)
Vertebrates harbour diverse communities of symbiotic gut microbes. Host diet is known to alter microbiota composition, implying that dietary treatments might alleviate diseases arising from altered microbial composition ('dysbiosis'). However, it remains unclear whether diet effects are general or depend on host genotype. Here we show that gut microbiota(More)
—Blur due to motion and atmospheric turbulence is a variable that impacts the accuracy of computer vision-based face recognition techniques. However, in images captured in the wild, such variables can hardly be avoided, requiring methods to account for these degradations in order to achieve accurate results in real time. One such method is to estimate the(More)
Very few causal genes have been identified by quantitative trait loci (QTL) mapping because of the large size of QTL, and most of them were identified thanks to functional links already known with the targeted phenotype. Here, we propose to combine selection signature detection, coding SNP annotation, and cis-expression QTL analyses to identify potential(More)

and Jon Breschak, and all the research assistants who helped to implement both the field and laboratory studies. We thank Seth Blair and Douglas Rouse, co-chairs of the Introductory Biology course for their support of the project and we thank Markus Brauer and Brian Allen for their help. Abstract First-generation college students (students for whom neither(More)
Human genome-wide association studies have identified thousands of loci associated with disease phenotypes. Genome-wide association studies also have become feasible using rodent models and these have some important advantages over human studies, including controlled environment, access to tissues for molecular profiling, reproducible genotypes, and a wide(More)
