This paper discusses expressed sequence tag sequencing over grid and cloud computing clusters, specifically for biological applications. In this paper, the authors propose a Web service framework for high-level job scheduling that is developed for scientific applications.
This paper discusses an ad hoc query tool for relational databases. Most Web servers hosting biological data limit users to a defined set of search options and output formats that are short of the whole range of options available to users with direct database access. However, to make full use of the wealth of data in the database resource, it is desirable to have an intermediate solution that provides a broad range of flexible query and output options through a Web portal.
In this paper, the author discusses whether open access threatens peer review, as implied by the Association of American Publishers in their endorsement of the Research Works Act. The author suggests that we need to experiment with new models of peer evaluation.
This paper discusses the University of North Texas' (UNT) Center for the Study of Interdisciplinarity (CSID), where philosophers continue to examine the value of knowledge. The authors also discuss one example of CSID's work with the Comparative Assessment of Peer Review (CAPR) project. CAPR is a four-year project (2008-2012) studying the changing nature of peer review processes across six U.S. and foreign public science agencies. CAPR is funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation's (NSF) Science of Science and Innovation Policy (SciSIP) program.
In this paper, the authors show using scanning tunneling microscopy, spectroscopy, and ab initio calculations that several intercalation structures exist for Na in epitaxial graphene on SiC(0001). Intercalation takes place at room temperature and Na electron-dopes the graphene. It intercalates in-between single-layer graphene and the carbon-rich interfacial layer. It also penetrates beneath the interfacial layer and decouples it to form a second graphene layer. This decoupling is accelerated by annealing and is verified by direct Na deposition onto the interface layer. The authors' observations show that intercalation in graphene is fundamentally different than in graphite and is a versatile means of electronic control.

In this paper, the authors adapt Axler and Ramey's method of constructing the harmonic part of a homogeneous polynomial to the Fischer decomposition associated to Dirac operators acting on polynomial spinors.
This paper was awarded a Nicholas and Anna Ricco Ethics Award for 2013. In this paper, the author discusses issues related to accountability versus autonomy and suggestions toward a more responsible practice of science.
Paper discussing the treatment of congestive heart failure. Abstract: Using a method of entropic analysis of time series we establish the correlation between heartbeat long-range memory and mortality risk in patients with congestive heart failure.
This paper is a reply to the comment by Helmstetter and Sornette titled "Intercluster correlation in Seismicity" which addresses an important point in a paper written by the authors that needs to be clarified.
