Masters ThesisA Comprehensive Analysis of Sex Hormones and Their Role in Reproductive Suppression in Female Northern Elephant Seals (Mirounga angustirostris)Sperou, Emily S."Purpose of the Study: Long-lived iteroparous females may suppress reproduction during unfavorable conditions to maximize lifetime reproductive success. Capital breeders must accrue sufficient body reserves to support reproductive effort or they may e . . .
AbstractNguyen, GiakyInfrared dark clouds (IRDCs) are cold, dense, massive Galactic star-forming regions that allow us to understand the physical conditions during the early stages of high-mass star formation (0 and early B-types, >20 MSUN). We present a sample of ~3,000 . . .
AbstractMaayah, YaraAtomic force microscopy (AFM) is a technique that can be used to probe an individual bio-molecule in physiological buffer conditions. It can resolve absolute distances down to atomic (~1A) length scales and sub-pN force levels which can provide real-t . . .
AbstractDeveloping an Extraction Protocol to Identify a Molecule Responsible for Powdery Mildew Disease ResistanceBravo, MoisesPowdery white mildew is a fungal disease that infects crops, decreasing quality of growth and yield. Interestingly, in A. thaliana there is a gene mutation which appears to enable the resistance to powdery mildew disease and acts through a single mole . . .
AbstractDetermining nutritional benefits of Cleome gynandra and its phytochemicals against Haemonchus contortus and other enteric pathogens in goat kidsLarson, KasieFor many Americans working in the animal industry, maintaining healthy livestock and their products is quintessential for economic success. Still, many goat producers lack high-grade forages that sustain large goat productions. Along with the forages, . . .
AbstractAguilar, AndrewWe aim to develop a resource to help our students get a deeper understanding of the concepts studied in class by using sophisms and erroneous resolutions, which are based on false logical claims or common misunderstandings. We have prepared several ex . . .

AbstractSalas, AustinThere is an ongoing need for simple and cost-effective biosensor systems with sufficient sensitivity, specificity, and speed. Plasmonic structures for biomedical sensing have been in use for a long time. However, there is a fundamental limitation of t . . .
AbstractThompson, EmilyTransition metals such as rhodium, indium, palladium, and gold have been used to catalyze pharmaceuticals, but due to the cost and rarity of such metals, alternate transition metal bases such as iron and nickel are being examined for their potential t . . .
