      We study macroscopically aligned single-wall carbon nanotube arrays with uniform lengths via polarization-dependent terahertz and infrared transmission spectroscopy. Polarization anisotropy is extreme at frequencies less ...
    • Collective dynamics of processive cytoskeletal motors 

      McLaughlin, R. Tyler; Diehl, Michael R.; Kolomeisky, Anatoly B. (2016)
      Major cellular processes are supported by various biomolecular motors that usually operate together as teams. We present an overview of the collective dynamics of processive cytokeletal motor proteins based on recent ...
    • Colony Expansion of Socially MotileᅠMyxococcus xanthusᅠCells Is Driven by Growth, Motility, and Exopolysaccharide Production 

      Patra, Pintu; Kissoon, Kimberley; Cornejo, Isabel; Kaplan, Heidi B.; Igoshin, Oleg A. (2016)
      Myxococcus xanthus, a model organism for studies of multicellular behavior in bacteria, moves exclusively on solid surfaces using two distinct but coordinated motility mechanisms. One of these, social (S) motility is powered ...
    • Combinatorial Clustering of Residue Position Subsets Predicts Inhibitor Affinity across the Human Kinome 

      Bryant, Drew H.; Moll, Mark; Finn, Paul W.; Kavraki, Lydia E. (2013)
