A model for Bioinformatics training : the Marine Biological Laboratory
Many areas of science such as biology, medicine, and oceanography are becoming increasingly data-rich and most programs that train scientists do not address informatics techniques or technologies that are necessary for ...
Consequences of considering carbon–nitrogen interactions on the feedbacks between climate and the terrestrial carbon cycle
(American Meteorological Society, 2008-08-01)
The impact of carbon–nitrogen dynamics in terrestrial ecosystems on the interaction between the carbon cycle and climate is studied using an earth system model of intermediate complexity, the MIT Integrated Global Systems ...
Global economic effects of changes in crops, pasture, and forests due to changing climate, carbon dioxide, and ozone
Multiple environmental changes will have consequences for global vegetation. To the extent that crop yields and pasture and forest productivity are affected there can be important economic consequences. We examine the ...
Probabilistic forecast for twenty-first-century climate based on uncertainties in emissions (without policy) and climate parameters
(American Meteorological Society, 2009-10-01)
The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Integrated Global System Model is used to make probabilistic projections of climate change from 1861 to 2100. Since the model’s first projections were published in 2003, ...

Microtubule plus-end dynamics in Xenopus egg extract spindles
(American Society for Cell Biology, 2004-02-06)
Microtubule dynamics underlie spindle assembly, yet we do not know how the spindle environment affects these dynamics. We developed methods for measuring two key parameters of microtubule plus-end dynamic instability in ...
Effects of tropospheric ozone pollution on net primary productivity and carbon storage in terrestrial ecosystems of China
(American Geophysical Union, 2007-11-17)
We investigated the potential effects of elevated ozone (O3) along with climate variability, increasing CO2, and land use change on net primary productivity (NPP) and carbon storage in China's terrestrial ecosystems for ...
Capture of lipopolysaccharide (endotoxin) by the blood clot : a comparative study
(Public Library of Science, 2013-11-25)
In vertebrates and arthropods, blood clotting involves the establishment of a plug of aggregated thrombocytes (the cellular clot) and an extracellular fibrillar clot formed by the polymerization of the structural protein ...
Depleted 15N in hydrolysable-N of arctic soils and its implication for mycorrhizal fungi–plant interaction
Uptake of nitrogen (N) via root-mycorrhizal associations accounts for a significant portion of total N supply to many vascular plants. Using stable isotope ratios (δ15N) and the mass balance among N pools of plants, ...
The application of δ18O and δD for understanding water pools and fluxes in a Typha Marsh
The δ18O and δD composition of water pools (leaf, root, standing water, and soil water) and fluxes (transpiration, evaporation) were used to understand ecohydrological processes in a managed Typha latifolia L. freshwater ...
