Protein-DNA interactions are important for many cellular processes, however structural knowledge for a large fraction of known and putative complexes is still lacking. Computational docking methods aim at the prediction of complex architecture given detailed structures of its constituents. They are becoming an increasingly important tool in the field of(More)
We address possible sampling biases reported in an earlier work (Bahadur et al., 2011) relating decreases in black carbon (BC) measurements from the IMPROVE monitoring network to diesel emissions in Cal-ifornia. A decrease in average BC concentration of between 40 and 60% is found at each site between 1988 and 2007, consistent with the statewide average of(More)
[1] Black carbon (BC) has many effects on climate including the direct effect on atmospheric absorption, indirect and semi-direct effects on clouds, snow effects, and others. While most of these are positive (warming), the first indirect effect is negative and quantifying its magnitude in addition to other BC feedbacks is important for supporting policies(More)

Surface tensions for liquid-vapor (lv), solid-liquid (sl), and solid-vapor (sv) interfaces are calculated from molecular dynamics simulations of the NaCl-water-air system. Three distinct calculation techniques based on thermodynamic properties are used to describe the multicomponent mixtures. Simulations of each bulk phase (including a liquid saturated(More)
