• #### Phenotypic Plasticity, Bet-Hedging, and Androgen Independence in Prostate Cancer: Role of Non-Genetic Heterogeneity ﻿

(2018)
It is well known that genetic mutations can drive drug resistance and lead to tumor relapse. Here, we focus on alternate mechanisms-those without mutations, such as phenotypic plasticity and stochastic cell-to-cell variability ...
• #### The redox “filter” beneath magmatic orogens and the formation of continental crust ﻿

(2018)
The two most important magmatic differentiation series on Earth are the Fe-enriching tholeiitic series, which dominates the oceanic crust and island arcs, and the Fe-depleting calc-alkaline series, which dominates the ...
• #### Policy support for biochar: Review and recommendations ﻿

(2018)
Significant evidence has accumulated demonstrating that soil biochar amendment has many environmental benefits; however, adoption has been slow. This raises the question of how to align the environmental benefits with ...
• #### Surfactant-assisted individualization and dispersion of boron nitride nanotubes ﻿

(2019)
Boron nitride nanotubes (BNNTs) belong to a novel class of material with useful thermal, electronic and optical properties. However, the study and the development of applications of this material requires the formation of ...
• #### Quantitative comparison of adaptive sampling methods for protein dynamics ﻿

(2018)
Adaptive sampling methods, often used in combination with Markov state models, are becoming increasingly popular for speeding up rare events in simulation such as molecular dynamics (MD) without biasing the system dynamics. ...
• #### Fluid Controls on the Heterogeneous Seismic Characteristics of the Cascadia Margin ﻿

(2018)
The dehydration of oceanic slabs during subduction is mainly thermally controlled and is often expressed as intermediate‐depth seismicity. In warm subduction zones, shallow dehydration can also lead to the buildup of ...
• #### Isotropic Seebeck coefficient of aligned single-wall carbon nanotube films ﻿

(2018)
How the morphology of a macroscopic assembly of nanoobjects affects its properties is a long-standing question in nanomaterials science and engineering. Here, we examine how the thermoelectric properties of a flexible thin ...
• #### The Cathles Parameter (Ct): A Geodynamic Definition of the Asthenosphere and Implications for the Nature of Plate Tectonics ﻿

(2018)
A weak asthenosphere, or low‐viscosity zone (LVZ), underlying Earth's lithosphere has played an important role in interpreting isostasy, postglacial rebound (PGR), and the seismic LVZ, as well as proposed mechanisms for ...
• #### Within-Host Priority Effects Systematically Alter Pathogen Coexistence ﻿

(2019)
Coinfection of host populations alters pathogen prevalence, host mortality, and pathogen evolution. Because pathogens compete for limiting resources, whether multiple pathogens can coexist in a host population can depend ...
• #### Perspective: Computational chemistry software and its advancement as illustrated through three grand challenge cases for molecular science ﻿

(2018)
The field of computational molecular sciences (CMSs) has made innumerable contributions to the understanding of the molecular phenomena that underlie and control chemical processes, which is manifested in a large number ...
• #### Molecular search with conformational change: One-dimensional discrete-state stochastic model ﻿

(2018)
Molecular search phenomena are observed in a variety of chemical and biological systems. During the search, the participating particles frequently move in complex inhomogeneous environments with random transitions between ...
• #### PRYSM v2.0: A Proxy System Model for Lacustrine Archives ﻿

(2018)
Reconstructions of temperature and hydrology from lake sedimentary archives have made fundamental contributions to our understanding of past, present, and future climate and help evaluate general circulation models (GCMs). ...
• #### Paleolatitude of the Hawaiian Hot Spot Since 48 Ma: Evidence for a Mid‐Cenozoic True Polar Stillstand Followed by Late Cenozoic True Polar Wander Coincident With Northern Hemisphere Glaciation ﻿

(2018)
Paleospin axis locations since 48 Ma inferred from the distribution of equatorial sediment accumulation rates on the Pacific plate, together with paleomagnetic poles from magnetic anomaly skewness, indicate that the Hawaiian ...
• #### Evolution of the activation domain in a Hox transcription factor ﻿

(2018)
Linking changes in amino acid sequences to the evolution of transcription regulatory domains is often complicated by the low sequence complexity and high mutation rates of intrinsically disordered protein regions. For the ...
• #### Orbital Selectivity Enhanced by Nematic Order in FeSe ﻿

(2018)
The secondary injury cascade that is activated following traumatic brain injury (TBI) induces responses from multiple physiological systems, including the immune system. These responses are not limited to the area of brain ...
• #### Anomalous Metamagnetism in the Low Carrier Density Kondo Lattice YbRh3Si7 ﻿

(2018)
We report complex metamagnetic transitions in single crystals of the new low carrier Kondo antiferromagnet YbRh3Si7. Electrical transport, magnetization, and specific heat measurements reveal antiferromagnetic order at ...
• #### Microwave photocurrent from the edge states of InAs/GaInSb bilayers ﻿

(2018)
Motivated by the recent low-temperature experiments on bulk FeSe, we study the electron correlation effects in a multiorbital model for this compound in the nematic phase using the U(1) slave-spin theory. We find that a ...
• #### Model for scattering with proliferating resonances: Many coupled square wells ﻿

(2018)
We present a multichannel model for elastic interactions, composed of an arbitrary number of coupled finite square-well potentials, and derive semianalytic solutions for its scattering behavior. Despite the model's simplicity, ...
• #### Constraining Gluon Distributions in Nuclei Using Dijets in Proton-Proton and Proton-Lead Collisions at $\sqrt{{s}_{\mathrm{NN}}}=5.02\text{ }\text{ }\mathrm{TeV}$ ﻿

(2018)
The pseudorapidity distributions of dijets as functions of their average transverse momentum (paveT) are measured in proton-lead (pPb) and proton-proton (pp) collisions. The data samples were collected by the CMS experiment ...
