      The results of a research project involving the modification of electric toys so they can be more easily operated.
    • An Autopsy on Mortality

      David Davis; Sam Minton
      I focus on historical and literary depictions of death in WWI in the context of modernism. I argue that constant interaction between the living and the dead led to the deconstruction of the binary of life and death in literary modernism.
    • Analysis of a deletion library screen of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae using Gene Ontology, protein-protein interaction, and metabolic pathway data

      Wiles, Amy; Graham, Joseph; Simmons, Sean; Gazan, Ethan; Cobb, David (2021)
      Saccharomyces cerevisiae (baker's yeast) is a commonly used eukaryotic model organism particularly suited to genomic and metabolic study. We hope to identify genes novel to sulfur and nitrogen metabolism. In previous experiments from this lab, a gene deletion library of 5,132 yeast strains was screened to identify genes necessary for growth in the absence of sulfur or nitrogen. If a gene were deleted and no growth were observed, this gene was determined to be important for allowing proliferation in the nutrient-limited environments and flagged as a hit. In this project, a one way ANOVA test was performed on the screen using R using the BiocManager library and limma package. The results of the ANOVA test were joined in MySQL with Gene Ontology (FuncAssociate), protein-protein interaction (InterPro), and metabolic/signaling pathway (KEGG) data obtained from Ensembl. Here we use analysis of these three types of data to distinguish common themes among the genes identified as hits.

    • Anticholinergic Activity of "Bath Salt" Synthetic Cathinone Drugs of Abuse

      Clinton Canal; Rachel Lukavsky; Yiming Chen
      We conducted pharmacological, discovery-based research focused on a class of psychoactive drugs of abuse called synthetic cathinones, colloquially known as “bath salts.” This summer allowed me to learn new research techniques that are currently being used in drug discovery and development.
    • Applied Electromyography in Gait Analysis
