Gene conversion is the nonreciprocal exchange of genetic material between homologous chromosomes. Multiple lines of evidence from a variety of taxa strongly suggest that gene conversion events are biased toward GC-bearing alleles. However, in Drosophila, the data have largely been indirect and unclear, with some studies supporting the predictions of a(More)
Surface pressure data from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory’s “Unsteady Aerodynamics Experiment” were analyzed to characterize the impact of threedimensionality, unsteadiness, and flow separation effects observed to occur on downwind horizontal axis wind turbines (HAWT). Surface pressure and strain gage data were collected from two rectangular(More)
As wind turbines continue to grow larger, problems associated with adverse aerodynamic loads will grow more critical. Thus, the wind energy technical community has begun to seriously consider the potential of aerodynamic control methodologies for mitigating adverse aerodynamic loading. Spatial and temporal attributes of the structures and processes present(More)
Both the area thermal expansion and the dielectric constant of a solid insulator are determined by a capacitance technique in which the change in area of a capacitor is first caused by the variation with temperature of the dimensions of the dielectric, and then by the variation over the same temperature range of the dimensions of copper electrodes, the same(More)
Meiotic recombination is a genetic process that is critical for proper chromosome segregation in many organisms. Despite being fundamental for organismal fitness, rates of crossing over vary greatly between taxa. Both genetic and environmental factors contribute to phenotypic variation in crossover frequency, as do genotype-environment interactions. Here,(More)
