    • Identification of maize genes associated with host plant resistance or susceptibility to Aspergillus flavus infection and aflatoxin accumulation. 

      Kelley, Rowena Y.; Williams, W. Paul; Mylroie, J. Erik; Boykin, Deborah L.; Harper, Jonathan W.; Windham, Gary L.; Ankala, Arunkanth; Shan, Xueyan (Public Library of ScienceDepartment of Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Entomology and Plant PathologyDepartment of Computer Sciences and EngineeringCollege of Agriculture and Life SciencesJames Worth Bagley College of EngineeringCorn Host Plant Resistance Research UnitAgricultural Research Service, 5/14/2012)
      BACKGROUND: Aspergillus flavus infection and aflatoxin contamination of maize pose negative impacts in agriculture and health. Commercial maize hybrids are generally susceptible to this fungus. Significant levels of host ...
    • Identifying blood biomarkers and physiological processes that distinguish humans with superior performance under psychological stress. 

      Cooksey, Amanda M.; Momen, Nausheen; Stocker, Russell; Burgess, Shane C. (Public Library of ScienceDepartment of Basic SciencesDepartment of Mathematics and StatisticsCollege of Veterinary MedicineCollege of Arts and Sciences, 12/18/2009)
      BACKGROUND: Attrition of students from aviation training is a serious financial and operational concern for the U.S. Navy. Each late stage navy aviator training failure costs the taxpayer over $1,000,000 and ultimately ...
    • Re-annotation is an essential step in systems biology modeling of functional genomics data. 

      van den Berg, Bart H. J.; McCarthy, Fiona M.; Lamont, Susan J.; Burgess, Shane C. (Public Library of ScienceDepartment of Basic SciencesCollege of Veterinary Medicine, 5/14/2010)
      One motivation of systems biology research is to understand gene functions and interactions from functional genomics data such as that derived from microarrays. Up-to-date structural and functional annotations of genes are ...
    • RNA-seq based transcriptional map of bovine respiratory disease pathogen "Histophilus somni 2336". 

      Kumar, Ranjit; Lawrence, Mark L.; Watt, James; Cooksey, Amanda M.; Burgess, Shane C.; Nanduri, Bindu (Public Library of ScienceCollege of Veterinary Medicine, 1/20/2012)
      Genome structural annotation, i.e., identification and demarcation of the boundaries for all the functional elements in a genome (e.g., genes, non-coding RNAs, proteins and regulatory elements), is a prerequisite for systems ...
    • Ultrasonic incisions produce less inflammatory mediator response during early healing than electrosurgical incisions. 

      Nanduri, Bindu; Pendarvis, Ken; Shack, Leslie A.; Kumar, Ranjit; Clymer, Jeffrey W.; Korvick, Donna L.; Burgess, Shane C. (Public Library of ScienceDepartment of Basic SciencesCollege of Veterinary Medicine, 9/12/2013)
      As the use of laparoscopic surgery has become more widespread in recent years, the need has increased for minimally-invasive surgical devices that effectively cut and coagulate tissue with reduced tissue trauma. Although ...
