      Murall, Carmen Lia; Bauch, Chris T.; Day, Troy (Royal Society, The, 2015-01-07)
      The human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccines hold great promise for preventing several cancers caused by HPV infections. Yet little attention has been given to whether HPV could respond evolutionarily to the new selection ...
    • A Counterexample to a Conjecture About Triangle-Free Induced Subgraphs of Graphs with Large Chromatic Number 

      Carbonero, Alvaro; Hompe, Patrick; Moore, Benjamin; Spirkl, Sophie (Elsevier ScienceDirect, 2023-01)
      We prove that for every n, there is a graph G with χ(G) ≥ n and ω(G) ≤ 3 such that every induced subgraph H of G with ω(H) ≤ 2 satisfies χ(H) ≤ 4.This disproves a well-known conjecture. Our construction is a digraph with ...

    • Coupling Fishery Dynamics, Human Health And Social Learning In A Model Of Fish-Borne Pollution Exposure 

      Yodzis, Michael; Bauch, Chris T.; Anand, Madhur (Springer, 2016-03-01)
      Pollution-induced illnesses are caused by toxicants that result from human activity and are often entirely preventable. However, where industrial priorities have undermined responsible governance, exposed populations must ...
    • Coupling solid phase microextraction to complementary separation platforms for metabotyping of E. coli metabolome in response to natural antibacterial agents

      Introduction Essential oils are known to possess antimicrobial activity; thus, their use has played an important role over the years in medicine and for food preservation purposes. Objective The effect of clove oil and its ...
    • The Course of Pharnakes II’s Pontic and Bosporan Campaigns in 48/47 BC 

      Coskun, Altay (University of Toronto Press, 2020-11-01)
      Appian’s account of Pharnakes’ Pontic campaign (Mithr. 120.590–595) conveys the impression that the king of the Bosporos started his attack on Asia Minor by attacking Sinope from the sea. The end of the narrative, however, ...
    • Covalent linking DNA to graphene oxide and its comparison with physisorbed probes for Hg2+ detection 

      Lu, Chang; Huang, Po-Jung Jimmy; Ying, Yibin; Liu, Juewen (Elsevier, 2016-05-15)
      Graphene oxide (GO) has attracted extensive research interest as a platform for DNA adsorption and biosensor development. While most researchers use simple physisorption of fluorescently labeled DNA, covalent sensors are ...
    • COVID-19's implications on agri-food systems and human health in Bangladesh 

      Talukder, Byomkesh; vanLoon, Gary W.; Hipel, Keith; Orbinski, James (Elsevier, 2021)
      The COVID-19 pandemic in Bangladesh has put agri-food systems and resultant human health under serious pressure and this has thus become a priority concern for the country and its development partners. To understand, ...
    • A Cox-Aalen model for interval-censored data 

      Cook, Richard J.; Boruvka, Audrey (Wiley, 2015-06)
      The Cox-Aalen model, obtained by replacing the baseline hazard function in the well-known Cox model with a covariate-dependent Aalen model, allows for both fixed and dynamic covariate effects. In this paper, we examine ...
    • Cr3+ Binding to DNA Backbone Phosphate and Bases: Slow Ligand Exchange Rates and Metal Hydrolysis 

      Zhou, Wenhu; Yu, Tianmeng; Vazin, Mahsa; Ding, Jinsong; Liu, Juewen (American Chemical Society, 2017-06-07)
      The interaction between chromium ions and DNA is of great interest in inorganic chemistry, toxicology, and analytical chemistry. Most previous studies focused on in situ reduction of Cr(VI), producing Cr3+ for DNA binding. ...
    • Creating Your Bubble: Personal Space On and Around Large Public Displays
