226 Ridge, Rachel KatherineFlagellar Protein Flhe Influences Motility and Morphology Through Regulation of Assembly in Escherichia ColiThe bacterial flagellar motor is a remarkably complex system, comprising thousands of protein subunits and responsible for motility in numerous species. Of these proteins, FlhE is not universally conserved and is relatively understudied. Usually found cotranscribed with flhB and flhA in the flhBAE o...2017
227 Fluckiger, Kylee ReneeFlexible Sensing for Pressure Ulcer Detection and PreventionPressure ulcers are a common and harmful ailment among those who use a wheelchair for extended lengths of time.

While other counties have stepped back or shifted their commitments t...Public law - United States - History2016-08
230 Jochim, JordanForging a truce, forcing an encounter: James Baldwin and the paradox of injuryIn States of Injury, Wendy Brown argues that emancipatory projects premised upon the "injured identity" of oppressed groups work inadvertently to solidify hierarchical social structures and generates forms of resentment that are ultimately self-defeating. As such, she urges the abandonment of injure...Baldwin, James, 1924-1987 - Criticism and interpretation; Political science - Philosophy; Power (Social science)2014-05
231 Bowen, BradyFractal geometry of melt ponds: Modeling the fractal geometry of arctic melt ponds using the level sets of random surfacesDuring the late spring, most of the Arctic Ocean is covered by sea ice with a layer of snow on top. As the snow and sea ice begin to melt, water collects on the surface to form melt ponds. As melting progresses, sparse, disconnected ponds coalesce to form complex, self-similar structures which are c...Melt pond geometry2016-04

236 Parker, DwightFrom the margins to the middle: a patient-centered approach to primary care for refugees in UtahIn a country where even English-speaking minorities are often at a disadvantage, refugees' circumstances - especially as a result of social instability, language and cultural differences, level of education, and income - can render the American health care system frightening, inaccessible, incompreh...Immigrants - United States; Health care - United States2012-05
237 Borrowman, WilliamGas exchange of co-occurring plant species of the Great Basin Desert in an irrigated common gardenThe majority of plants in the Great Basin ecosystem have adapted to cope with drought during summer. While general characteristics of these plants have been studied in non-managed environments it is important to investigate the physiology of these plants when additional water is supplied. In this ...Urban heat island -- Prevention; Desert plants -- Ecology -- Great Basin -- Research; Plant ecophysiology -- Research; Irrigation -- Environmental aspects; Red Butte Garden (Salt Lake City, Utah)2014-04
238 Du Pre, Jessie J.Gender differences in recollected consistency or change in same sex sexuality across the lifespan: Measuring linkages between flexibility in sexual attraction, behavior, and love propensityThe flexibility of same sex attractions, engagement in same sex sexual behaviors, and propensity to fall in love with same sex partners were examined by assessing selfreported change over time in men and women of heterosexual, bisexual, and homosexual orientations. We sought to examine whether the l...Same sex attraction; Gender differences2015-12
239 Herbert-Voss, ArielGenerating audio mixtures using deep convolutional neural networksDeep neural networks have recently been used in a generative capacity to separate and convolve the content and style of two input images. This is done using a joint cost function during gradient descent that encodes information about style and content to iteratively calculate forward node activation...Computer sound processing; Computer music; Machine learning; Neural networks; Audio mixtures; Spectrograms; Split integer scaling2016-05
240 Rahmati, KasraGenetically Modified Chemotaxis Signaling Protein Chey Binds to the Rotor Protein Flin to Control the Direction of Flagellar Rotation in Escherichia ColiBacterial chemotaxis is the directed movement of a bacterium in response to environmental chemical stimuli. Cells of E. coli, for example, swim by rotating their flagella and direct their movement by regulating reversals between counterclockwise (CCW) and clockwise (CW) rotation. The switch from CCW...2020
