The ligand-dependent nuclear receptor peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-gamma (PPARgamma) regulates the differentiation of several tissues and cell types. PPARgamma was recently determined to be essential for murine placental development and differentiation. We therefore assessed the influence of PPARgamma on differentiation of human placental… (More)
Social science data are an unusual part of the past, present, and future of digital preservation. They are both an unqualified suc cess, due to long-lived and sustainable archival organizations, and in need of further development because not all digital content is being preserved. This article is about the Data Preservation Alliance for the Social Sciences… (More)
Viruses are catalysts of biogeochemical cycling, architects of microbial community structure, and terminators of phytoplankton blooms. Viral lysis of diatoms, a key group of eukaryotic phytoplankton, has the potential to impact carbon export and marine food webs. However, the impact of viruses on diatom abundance and community composition is unknown.… (More)
Hellinger distance is a distance between two additive measures defined in terms of the Radon-Nikodym derivative of these two measures. This measure proposed in 1909 has been used in a large variety of contexts. In this paper we define an analogous measure for fuzzy measures. We discuss them for distorted probabilities and give two examples.
