Efficient single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) genotyping methods are necessary to accomplish many current gene discovery goals. A crucial element in large-scale SNP genotyping is the number of individual biochemical reactions that must be performed. An efficient method that can be used to simultaneously amplify a set of genetic loci across a genome with(More)
The Q(weak) experiment has measured the parity-violating asymmetry in ep elastic scattering at Q(2)=0.025(GeV/c)(2), employing 145 μA of 89% longitudinally polarized electrons on a 34.4 cm long liquid hydrogen target at Jefferson Lab. The results of the experiment's commissioning run, constituting approximately 4% of the data collected in the experiment,(More)
Carbon occluded in the soil gibbsite crystal structure at the Panola Mountain Research Watershed, Georgia, U.S. is presumed to be in isotopic equilibrium with the CO2 respired from soil organics by microbes and plant roots. Fitting of the stable carbon isotopic data to a Fickian diffusion-based depth function results in an estimate of 47 gC m 2 y 1 for the(More)
Investigating storm runoff generation in watersheds is an area of ongoing hydrologic research. Geochemical tracer studies, such as static end-member mixing analysis (EMMA) and hysteresis loop analysis, have been used to evaluate these processes. While EMMA can assess the relative input of flow pathways for individual stream water quality samples collected(More)
Many believe that successful companies beyond the year 2000 will all need to operate as learning organizations. Stimulating this vision have been Dr. Peter Senge of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Dr. James Milojkovic of Stanford University. As a learning organization, all members of a company will learn more about other parts of the(More)
