    • A Comparison of Coalescent Estimation Software
    • Shepherd, Kristen Piggott 1977-
    • Coalescent theory is a method often used by population geneticists in order to make inferences about evolutionary parameters. The coalescent is a stochastic model that approximates ancestral relationships among genes. An understanding of the...


    • A Comparison of Optimized Nonlinear Time History Analysis and the Equivalent Lateral Forces Method for Brace Design
    • Balling, Lukas 1981-
    • This thesis presents the development of a design procedure for buckling-restrained braced frames (BRBF's). This procedure uses nonlinear time history analysis and a formal optimization algorithm. The time history analysis includes an...


    • A Longitudinal Study of the Effect of at Birth Adoptions on Anxiety, Stress Hormones and Adolescent Alcohol Intake: A Nonhuman Primate Model
    • Maxwell, Whitney Faith
    • Adopted individuals have an increased risk for a variety of psychopathological disorders. Studies of the effects adoption in humans are difficult to perform because of the difficulty separating genetic risk and treatment effects. This is a...


    • A Population Genetic Study of Middle Eastern Populations Using DYS 458 Microvariants and Cohen Modal Haplotypes
    • Tinah,Enass Nabeel 1974-
    • A comprehensive population study in the Middle East was conducted using different genetic markers in order to establish a wider genetic profile of the Middle Eastern populations. The main goal of this study was to analyze DNA from samples collected...


    • Accounting for Additional Heterogeneity: A Theoretic Extension of an Extant Economic Model
    • Barney, Bradley John 1980-
    • The assumption in economics of a representative agent is often made. However, it is a very rigid assumption. Hall and Jones (2004b) presented an economic model that essentially provided for a representative agent for each age group in determining...


    • Algorithmically Flexible Style Composition Through Multi-Objective Fitness Functions
    • Murray, Skyler James
    • Creating a fitness function for music is largely subjective and dependent on a programmer's personal tastes or goals. Previous attempts to create musical fitness functions for use in genetic algorithms lack scope or are prejudiced to a certain...


    • Analytical Comparison of Multimicrophone Probes in Measuring Acoustic Intensity
    • Wiederhold, Curtis P.
    • In the late 1970s, a method was developed to estimate acoustic intensity in one dimension by taking the cross-spectral density of two closely-spaced microphone signals. Since then, multimicrophone probes have been developed to measure...


    • Application of Genome Reduction, Next Generation Sequencing, and KASPar Genotyping in Development, Characterization, and Linkage Mapping of Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms in the Grain Amaranths and Quinoa
    • Smith, Scott Matthew
    • The grain amaranths (Amaranthus sp.) and quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa Willd.) are important seed crops in South America. These crops have gained international attention in recent years for their nutritional quality and tolerance to abiotic stress. We...


    • Assessing Traditional Morphology- and Chemistry-Based Species Circumspections in Lichenized Ascomycetes: Character Evolution and Molecular Species Delimitation in Common Western North American Lichens
    • Leavitt, Steven 1979-
    • Accurate species delimitation has critical implications for ecological and conservation studies; and for understanding factors driving diversification. However, a growing body of evidence indicates that morphology-based species circumspection in...


    • Assessment of Chenopodium quinoa Willd. Genetic Diversity in the USDA and CIP-FAO Collections Using SSR?S and SNP?S
    • Christensen, Shawn A 1974-
    • Quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa Willd.) is a staple grain for the indigenous people of the Andean region of South America with excellent nutritional qualities, including protein content. The objective of this study is to report on the development of...


    • Assessment of Genetic Diversity Among Peruvian Amaranth (Amaranthus caudatus L.) Germplasm Using SNP Markers
    • Jimenez Rondan, Felix Ruben
    • Amaranth (Amaranthus caudatus L.) is an important pseudocereal in the Andes. The seed has excellent nutritional value (high in protein, essential amino acids, and minerals) and ample capacity for growth in diverse, harsh Andean...


    • Biogeography of the Livebearing Fish Poecilia gillii in Costa Rica: Are Phylogeographic Breaks Congruent with Fish Community Boundaries?
    • Lee, Jared Benjamin 1979-
    • One of the original goals of phylogeography was to use genetic data to identify historical events that might contribute to breaks among biotic communities. In this study, we examine the phylogeography of a common livebearing fish (Poecilia gillii)...


    • Biologically Relevant Multiple Sequence Alignment
    • Carroll,Hyrum D 1978-
    • Researchers use multiple sequence alignment algorithms to detect conserved regions in genetic sequences and to identify drug docking sites for drug development. In this dissertation, a novel algorithm is presented for using physicochemical...


    • Calibration Procedure for a Microscopic Traffic Simulation Model
    • Turley, Carole 1982-
    • The inputs to a microscopic traffic simulation model generally include quantitative, but immeasurable data describing driver behavior and vehicle performance characteristics. Engineers often use default values for parameters such as car-following...


    • Comparison of Analysis and Optimization Methods for Core-Megacolumn-Outrigger Skyscrapers
    • Peterson, James B
    • The goal of this research is to compare performance of three analysis methods and three optimization methods for core-megacolumn-outrigger, or CMO skyscrapers. The three analysis methods include a 1D stick analysis, 2D frame analysis, and 3D...


    • Compartmentalization of HIV-1 in the Secondary Lymphoid Tissues
    • Gregson, James Peter 1977-
    • Follicular dendritic cells (FDCs) reside in the lymphoid follicles of the secondary lymphoid tissues (sLTs). Following the infection of an individual with human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1), viral particles are trapped in massive...


    • Construction of a COL11A1 Transgene Vector
    • Beck, Cameron McKell 1979-
    • Background: Cartilage disorders affect millions of people in the United States alone, with effects ranging from poor skeletal development and joint pain to shortened lifespan and perinatal lethality. Many of these disorders have their root in...


    • Coordinated Regional and City Planning Using a Genetic Algorithm
    • Lowry, Michael B 1977-
    • Improved methods of planning are needed to deal with today’s issues of traffic congestion, sprawl, and loss of greenspace. Past research and recent legislation call for new methods that will consider a regional perspective. Regional planning...



    • Crustacean phylogenetic systematics and opsin evolution
    • Porter, Megan L 1974-
    • Composed of a chromophore bound to an integral membrane protein (opsin), visual pigments are phenotypically characterized by the wavelength of maximal absorption (ëmax). The underlying molecular mechanism controlling ëmax is the interaction...


    • De novo Genome Assembly and SNP Marker Development of Pyrenophora semeniperda
    • Soliai, Marcus Makina
    • Pyrenophora semeniperda (anamorph Drechslera campulata) is a necrotrophic fungal seed pathogen of a variety of grass genra and species, including Bromus tectorum, an exotic grass that has invaded many natural ecosystems of the U.S. Intermountain...
