The spatial organization of the genome is intimately linked to its biological function, yet our understanding of higher order genomic structure is coarse, fragmented and incomplete. In the nucleus of eukaryotic cells, interphase chromosomes occupy distinct chromosome territories, and numerous models have been proposed for how chromosomes fold within(More)
In this two-part paper, the impact of level-II Weather Surveillance Radar-1988 Doppler (WSR-88D) reflectivity and radial velocity data on the prediction of a cluster of tornadic thunderstorms in the Advanced Regional Prediction System (ARPS) model are studied. Radar reflectivity data are used primarily in a cloud analysis procedure that retrieves the amount(More)

In this paper, we explore the utility of recently discovered multiple-antenna techniques (namely MIMO techniques) for medium access control (MAC) design and routing in mobile ad hoc networks. Specifically, we focus on ad hoc networks where the spatial diversity technique is used to combat fading and achieve robustness in the presence of user mobility. We(More)
Sex differences are present for all of the phases of drug abuse (initiation, escalation of use, addiction, and relapse following abstinence). While there are some differences among specific classes of abused drugs, the general pattern of sex differences is the same for all drugs of abuse. Females begin regularly self-administering licit and illicit drugs of(More)
Women are at greater risk for cocaine addiction than are men, and female rats similarly show a greater propensity to self-administer cocaine than do male rats. This could be due to the intrinsic sex differences in brain organization, to the activational effects of circulating gonadal hormones, or both. For example, estradiol enhances dopamine release in the(More)
We have demonstrated 8.5-11.5 GHz class-E MMIC high-power amplifiers (HPAs) with a peak power-added-efficiency (PAE) of 61% and drain efficiency (DE) of 70% with an output power of 3.7 W in a continuous-mode operation. At 5 W output power, PAE and DE of 58% and 67% are measured, respectively, which implies MMIC power density of 5 W/mm at Vds = 30 V. The(More)
In the paper nine different approaches to missing attribute values are presented and compared. Ten input data files were used to investigate the performance of the nine methods to deal with missing attribute values. For testing both naive classification and new classification techniques of LERS (Learning from Examples based on Rough Sets) were used. The(More)
Estradiol acts rapidly and directly to inhibit L-type Ca2+ current in medium spiny neurons from striatum. Since medium spiny neurons contain gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), we hypothesized that estradiol inhibition of Ca2+ channel current in the cell body would result in decreased GABA release. In this study, we examined the effect of estradiol on the(More)
In this paper we demonstrate the merits of GaN MMIC technology for high bandwidth millimeter-wave power applications and for microwave robust LNA receiver applications. We report the development of a broadband two-stage microstrip Ka-band GaN MMIC power amplifier, with 15dB of flat small signal gain over the 27.5GHz to 34.5GHz frequency range and 4W of(More)
