132 Kent, AlexandraDNA split aptamers as a biosensing platform for the detection of small drug moleculesPrescription drug overdose and abuse is a leading cause of death in the United States. It is a serious issue and has become increasingly problematic as opioids are being prescribed with a higher frequency. For this reason, fast, accurate detection of small drug molecules is crucial. The current stan...Drug testing; Biosensors; DNA split aptamers
133 Memmott, Magdalen GraceDRM & driving: Creation of false memories under cognitive workloadNot only are humans unable to recall things that actually occur, they may also recall information that did not occur. Such findings contribute to the pervasive hypothesis that people are not more productive by combining tasks, instead such productivity is an illusion. It was hypothesized that when m...False memory syndrome2015-04

135 Falvo, JamieDecomposition of ethnic wage gap in Utah and intermountain regionHispanic workers on average earn less than white workers in both Utah and the Intermountain region. Average wage disparities in Utah and the Intermountain region are largely similar in magnitude, with various socioeconomic factors affecting these wage disparities. However, little is known about the ...Income distribution - Utah; Wages - Utah2016-04
136 Bracken, KallieDefining learning: mystifying machine learning as a powerful tool in a data-driven worldUntil recently, the driving paradigm in software engineering has been to design applications for a predefined set of tasks. This approach, however, is quickly being dwarfed by data-driven applications which are designed to use knowledge and understanding to decide how they can best fulfill use...Machine learning - Case studies; Machine learning - Study and Teaching; Machine Learning - Technique2016-04
137 Evans, Kathryn S.Defining the interaction between ETV4 and mediator subunit MED25Chromosomal rearrangements resulting in an overexpression of a subset of ETS transcription factors (ETV1, ETV4, ETV5, and ERG) are found in over 50% of prostate cancers (Tomlins et al., 2005). ERG and ETV1 have both shared and distinct gene targets, yet overexpression of ETV1 is often found to be as...Transcription factors; Prostate -- Cancer -- Genetic aspects; ETV42015-05
138 Peterson, Joseph RyanDeflagration and detonation modeling of heterogeneous condensed phase explosivesA modeling approach to the deflagration and detonation phenomena is employed to study a variety of explosive scenarios. An engineering model for macroscale reaction of energetic materials over the wide range of explosive reaction from deflagration to detonation is developed based upon solid foundati...Deflagration phenomena; Detonation phenomena; mesoscale model2012-05
139 Lim, Koun (Kasha)Deglycoyslation of glucose oxidase and its application within high power enzymatic fuel cellsTo compensate for the increase of carbon dioxide level and the energy exhaust, an enzymatic fuel cell (EFC) has been investigated by researchers. In the paper, a chemical oxidative deglycosylation of an enzyme was investigated to furture improve EFCs. By deglycosylating an enzyme, the distance betwe...Fuel cells - Research; Electric power - Research; Deglycosylation; Enzymatic fuel cell; Glucose oxidase2016-04
140 Kennedy, AshleyDesign of Optimal Carbonaceous Material from Carbon Capture for Use in Lithium-Ion BatteriesThe utilization of carbon nanofiber obtained from carbon capture as a potential anodic material in lithium-ion batteries was investigated in this project.
