Mouse embryonic stem (ES) cells grown in serum exhibit greater heterogeneity in morphology and expression of pluripotency factors than ES cells cultured in defined medium with inhibitors of two kinases (Mek and GSK3), a condition known as "2i" postulated to establish a naive ground state. We show that the transcriptome and epigenome profiles of serum- and(More)
Puerarin and daidzin are the major isoflavone glucosides found in kudzu dietary supplements. In this study, we demonstrated that puerarin significantly improves glucose tolerance in C57BL/6J-ob/ob mice, an animal model of type 2 diabetes mellitus, blunting the rise in blood glucose levels after i.p. administration of glucose. In contrast, daidzin, the(More)
The Modern Portfolio Theory of Markowitz maximized portfolio expected return subject to holding total portfolio variance below a selected level. Digital Portfolio Theory is an extension of Modern Portfolio Theory, with the added dimension of memory. Digital Portfolio Theory decomposes the portfolio variance into independent components using the signal(More)

Obese women exhibit decreased fertility, high miscarriage rates and dysfunctional corpus luteum (CL), but molecular mechanisms are poorly defined. We hypothesized that weight gain induces alterations in CL gene expression. RNA sequencing was used to identify changes in the CL transcriptome in the vervet monkey (Chlorocebus aethiops) during weight gain. 10(More)
Joint MiRNA/mRNA expression profiling reveals rhanges consistent with development of dysfunctional corpus luteum after weight gain. Abstract Obese women exhibit decreased fertility, high miscarriage rates and dysfunctional corpus luteum (CL), but molecular mechanisms are poorly defined. We hypothesized that weight gain induces alterations in CL gene(More)
D o you ever wonder why the term " evaluation " is such a common word among so many organizations these days? This is due in part to the heightened level of accountability that has moved beyond expectation to obligation. Believing that evaluation focuses solely on a large number of people simply participating in a program is a thing of the past. Most(More)
This research in progress is part of a study being submitted for dissertation. The purpose of this study is to determine what types of students will be impacted by Classroom Response Systems (CRS) technology. Additionally, this research explores the nature of the outcomes experienced by students and their perceptions of leading pedagogy and practices for(More)
