Clathrin-coated vesicle formation is responsible for membrane traffic to and from the endocytic pathway during receptor-mediated endocytosis and organelle biogenesis, influencing how cells relate to their environment. Generating these vesicles involves self-assembly of clathrin molecules into a latticed coat on membranes that recruits receptors and(More)
Recent developments in mobile technologies have provided unique opportunities for learning and teaching. This paper reports on recent research undertaken at a regional Australian university in order to understand how higher education students are using mobile devices to support their learning. A survey instrument was developed and deployed and the data(More)
Preface This material in this report was produced for the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality in order to summarize patterns of status and trends in water quality, phytoplankton, primary productivity, zooplankton and benthos collected as part of the Virginia Chesapeake Bay Program. There are three reports, referred to as basin summaries, one each(More)
Notice During the mid-1990's the Chesapeake Bay Program's (CBP) Analytical Methods and Quality Assurance Workgroup recommended that the CBP adopt new and more accurate analytical methods for measuring total nitrogen, dissolved inorganic nitrogen, total phosphorus and dissolved inorganic phosphorus. An recent examination of scatterplots of these parameters(More)

Phytoplankton and water quality long term trends are presented from a 20-year monitoring program of Chesapeake Bay and several of its major tributaries. Increasing phytoplankton biomass and abundance are ongoing within this estuarine complex, with diatoms the dominant component, along with chlorophytes and cyanobacteria as sub-dominant contributors in the(More)
Self-assembled molecular nanolayers (MNLs) composed of short organic chains and terminated with desired functional groups are attractive for modifying surface properties for a variety of applications. For example, organosilane MNLs are used as lubricants, in nanolithography, for corrosion protection and in the crystallization of biominerals. Recent work has(More)
