We also wish to thank Rick Nordby for his assistance in working with the electronic licensing system. Finally, we thank the many waterfowl hunters who took the time to complete the survey(More)
Neural networks were used to generalize common themes found in transmembrane-spanning protein helices. Various-sized databases were used containing nonoverlapping sequences, each 25 amino acids long. Training consisted of sorting these sequences into 1 of 2 groups: transmembrane helical peptides or nontransmembrane peptides. Learning was measured using a(More)
The challenges facing education today must be seen in the broader context of the challenges facing society. The singular reality is that none of us has been here before. Educational leadership will require different behaviours from those we have practised and perfected. For example, we will spend more time running experiments than solving problems, more(More)
Sample collection for Ion Mobility Spectrometry (IMS) analysis is typically completed by swiping a collection wipe over a suspect surface to collect trace residues. The work presented here addresses the need for a method to measure the collection efficiency performance of surface wipe materials as a function of the number of times a wipe is used to(More)

For Derek, who supported me through the many ups and downs of grad school with unflagging confidence, continual encouragement, and lots of laughter. Abstract Comparison of the spatial organization of related genomes reveals a wealth of information about how complex biological systems evolve and function. A fundamental task in spatial comparative genomics is(More)
