135 Osunbayo, Olaolu AbiolaMicrotubule Geometry and Thermal Modulation of Molecular Motors Tug-Of-WarThe majority of studies of intracellular transport have focused on cargos that move well over some distance. However, a significant percentage of intracellular cargos at any given time remain in a stalled or locally diffusive state. The goal of my graduate work was to study the processes that lead t...Biophysics; Physiology2017
136 Oldroyd, John DavidBiostratigraphy of the Cambrian Glossopleura zone : west-central Utah.In two measured sections in the House Range and Drum Mountains, the Chisholm and Dome Formations have a combined thickness of approxmately 600 feet and represent Middle Cambrian deposition in shallow shelf-lagoon and near-sea-level shoal environments. The chisholm formation consists of shale and thi...1973
137 Olsen, Richard HubbellGeology of the Promontory Range, Box Elder County, UtahThe Promontory Range, Box Elder County, Utah,, is the first mountain range west of the north-central Wasatch Mountains. An almost complete stratigraphic record from early Late Precambrian to Early Permian is present.
