Dihydrotestosterone was implanted directly into the brain of ovariectomized all-female Cnemidophorus uniparens. Only implants located in the anterior hypothalamus-preoptic area (AH-POA) induced male-like pseudocopulatory behavior. Implants in other brain regions, including the ventromedial hypothalamus (VMH), failed to elicit mounting and intromission(More)
Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) are frameworks for modern pervasive computing infrastructures, and are often subject to operational difficulties, such as the inability to effectively mitigate signal noise or sensor failure. Natural systems, such as gene regulatory networks (GRNs), participate in similar information transport and are often subject to similar(More)
Motifs are patterns of recurring connections among the genes of genetic networks that occur more frequently than would be expected from randomized networks with the same degree sequence. Although the abundance of certain three-node motifs, such as the feed-forward loop, is positively correlated with a networks' ability to tolerate moderate disruptions to(More)
Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) form a critical component in modern computing applications; given their size, ability to process and communicate information, and to sense stimuli, they are a promising part of The Internet of Things. However, they are also plagued by reliability and node failure problems. Here we address these problems by using E. coli Gene(More)
Fish spawning is often used as an integrated measure of reproductive toxicity, and an indicator of aquatic ecosystem health in the context of forecasting potential population-level effects considered important for ecological risk assessment. Consequently, there is a need for flexible, widely-applicable, biologically-based models that can predict changes in(More)
BACKGROUND Proteins search along the DNA for targets, such as transcription initiation sequences, according to one-dimensional diffusion, which is interrupted by micro- and macro-hopping events and intersegmental transfers that occur under close packing conditions. RESULTS A one-dimensional diffusion-reaction model in the form of difference-differential(More)
Given an aftermath of a cascade in the network, i.e. a set V<sub>I</sub> of "infected" nodes after an epidemic outbreak or a propagation of rumors/worms/viruses, how can we infer the sources of the cascade? Answering this challenging question is critical for computer forensic, vulnerability analysis, and risk management. Despite recent interest towards this(More)
The internal biochemical state of a cell is regulated by a vast transcriptional network that kinetically correlates the concentrations of numerous proteins. Fluctuations in protein concentration that encode crucial information about this changing state must compete with fluctuations caused by the noisy cellular environment in order to successfully transmit(More)
