We present a new release of the immune epitope database analysis resource (IEDB-AR, http://tools.immuneepitope.org), a repository of web-based tools for the prediction and analysis of immune epitopes. New functionalities have been added to most of the previously implemented tools, and a total of eight new tools were added, including two B-cell epitope(More)
We examined crustacean zooplankton data (excluding nauplii) from 15 shallow lakes in south and central Florida, spanning a range of sizes and Chlorophyll-a concentrations. Each dataset was comprised of monthly samples from 2 years (6 lakes), or monthly to quarterly samples from 10 or 12 years (9 lakes). We quantified relationships between the zooplankton to(More)
Binding MOAD (Mother of All Databases) is a database of 9836 protein-ligand crystal structures. All biologically relevant ligands are annotated, and experimental binding-affinity data is reported when available. Binding MOAD has almost doubled in size since it was originally introduced in 2004, demonstrating steady growth with each annual update. Several(More)
The mid-summer disappearance of Daphnia and the small size of cladocerans in subtropical lakes have been explained as phenomena caused by high water temperature. Recent experimental and observational studies suggest that instead, fish predation could be the cause. In the present study, we evaluated effects of temperature and fish predation by comparing(More)
We demonstrate a major ecological change in a large lake ecosystem in response to a series of extreme weather events. Phytoplankton community dynamics in subtropical Lake Okeechobee are described from 2000 through early 2008 with emphasis on inter-relationships among phytoplankton populations and associated environmental variables in this large, shallow(More)
We assessed if the qualitative and quantitative aspects of plankton composition in reservoirs of the middle Missouri River were influenced by hydrologic variability. Phytoplankton and zooplankton communities in six reservoirs of this highly regulated system were sampled between 2004 and 2011 during historic drought, subsequent recovery, and a 100-year flood(More)
The earliest stages of osteoarthritis are characterized by peripheral pathology; however, during disease progression chronic pain emerges-a major symptom of osteoarthritis linked to neuroplasticity. Recent clinical imaging studies involving chronic pain patients, including osteoarthritis patients, have demonstrated that functional properties of the brain(More)
Shallow lakes, particularly those in low-lying areas of the subtropics, are highly vulnerable to changes in climate associated with global warming. Many of these lakes are in tropical cyclone strike zones and they experience high inter-seasonal and inter-annual variation in rainfall and runoff. Both of those factors strongly modulate sediment–water column(More)
