Profiles, which are summaries of multiple alignments of a sequence family, are used to find new instances of the family in databases. In this paper, we study the maximum score M obtained when the profile is aligned without indels at all possible positions of a random sequence. The main theorem gives an approximation to the distribution function of M with an(More)
Permeable reactive barriers (PRBs) have shown great promise as an alternative to pump and treat for the remediation of groundwater containing a wide array of contaminants including organics, metals, and radionuclides. Analyses to date have focused on individual case studies, rather than considering broad performance issues. In response to this need, this(More)
Given the nature of clinical research, it is not uncommon for gravely ill participants to succumb to their underlying disease in the course of a trial. However, in September, 1999, the gene transfer research community was alerted to the report of the death of a young man enrolled in a gene transfer trial at the University of Pennsylvania.1 In this case, the(More)
We present a fully functional material extrusion printer for optically transparent glass. The printer is comprised of scalable modular elements, able to operate at the high temperatures required to process glass from a molten state to an annealed product. We demonstrate a process enabling the construction of 3D parts as described by Computer Aided Design(More)

Rapid advances in digital fabrication technologies and new materials development allow for direct control and programmability of physical material transformations. By utilizing multimaterial 3D printing technologies and anisotropic material compositions, we can physically program hygroscopic materials such as wood to precisely sense and self-transform based(More)
This issue, Volume 20, No. 3, 2010, coincides with Journal Editor-in-Chief Dr. Harold S. Koplewicz’s unveiling of the new name and brand identity of the Child Mind Institute (formerly The Child Study Center Foundation), a new organization dedicated to transforming child mental health care to enable children and teens everywhere to fulfill their potential.(More)
