    • GPER Inhibition of Coronary Artery Smooth Muscle Cell Migration and Proliferation 

      Szynkarski, Claudia Kay (2013-02-04)
      Our research investigated a possible target for cardiovascular disease treatment via the G-protein coupled estrogen receptor (GPER). Estrogen mitigates vascular smooth muscle cell (VSMC) proliferation and migration, which ...
    • GPU ACCELERATION OF THE ISO–7 NUCLEAR REACTION NETWORK USING OPENCL 

      Holladay, Daniel 1989- (2012-05-01)
      We looked at the potential performance increases available through OpenCL and its parallel computing capabilities, including GPU computing as it applies to time inte- gration of nuclear reaction networks. The particular ...
    • Grain Growth in Niobium for Superconducting Radio Frequency Cavities 

      Vernon, Joshua A. (2009-06-09)
      This project explores the grain growth characteristics and grain morphology of bulk niobium (Nb) processed by severe plastic deformation (SPD). This report deals with factors affecting grain growth and recrystallization: ...
    • Grain-size distributions of tsunami sediments 

      Spencer, Sarah (2011-08-08)
      Tsunami deposits indicate that suspended load transport is the main mechanism of movement throughout a tsunami event. Recent studies have touched on whether bed load transport is also occurring, but not seen in deposits ...
    • GraphBLAS: Solving Graph Algorithms with Linear Algebra 

      Maldonado Guzman, Julio Cesar
      GraphBLAS is a C library written by Dr. Davis that allows users to easily represent graphs as sparse matrices. GraphBLAS also allows linear algebra operations on its graphs, so that users can develop graph algorithms in ...
    • Groundwater Study at Armand Bayou Nature Center 

      Morrison, Derek 1990- (2012-04-23)
      This paper describes the research done to determine the hydraulic gradient and direction of groundwater flow in two aquifers at the Armand Bayou wetland. One aquifer is an unconfined aquifer at a depth of approximately 15 ...
    • Growth and plasmid characteristics of a porcine-derived Salmonella typhimurium resistant to chlortetracycline 

      Shiflett, J. Mason (Texas A&M University, 2013-02-22)
      This study was a preliminary investigation in which porcine derived Salmonella typhimurium was selected for resistance to the equivalent of 20o and 400 grams of chlortetracydine per ton of swine feed. These resistant strains ...
    • Guns and Grades 

      Bornman, Katherine Christophers
      Laws protecting the right to carry a concealed handgun on college campuses have been passed in eleven states to date, March 25, 2017, and additional states are considering similar legislation. A primary intent of these ...
    • Gustatory Perception of Sugars in Drosophila melanogaster Larvae 

      Broussard, Alex 1991- (2012-04-26)
      Drosophila melanogaster larvae have historically been targeted as favorable models for the study of chemosensation and chemosensory learning due to the relative simplicity of their neuroanatomy. Sugars are traditionally ...
    • Hand Held Neutron Detector Development for Physics and Security Applications 

      Baker, William; Campbell, Caitlin E (2013-10-04)
      The Cryogenic Dark Matter Search (CDMS) uses silicon and germanium detectors in the search for Weakly Interacting Massive Particles (WIMP), a candidate for dark matter. Although these detectors are heavily protected with ...
    • Handedness and Script Directionality in Relation to Graphic Production, Perception, and Aesthetic Preference of Visual Stimuli 

      Rhodes, Rebecca E (2012-07-11)
      This study examined the influence of handedness and reading/writing direction on the facing and sequencing of drawn objects and/or scenes and on orientation preference in viewing figures and photographing objects. Right- ...
    • Haptic Interactive Deformable Models 

      Riyaj Ahamed, Shafeeq I (2015-10-06)
      Haptic devices are devices that emulate the sense of touch through a force feedback mechanism that enables users to physically interact with virtual objects. This supplementary element of interaction allows users to ...
    • HapticDive: An Intuitive Warning System for Underwater Users 

      Santani, Sneha; Escalante-Trevino, Leslie
      All divers—regardless of skill or activity—are constantly at risk of decompression sickness; mild symptoms can often go ignored, and can also be deadly if left untreated. Currently, divers receive training and carry a dive ...
    • HaptiGo Tactile Navigation System 

      Regmi, Sarin (2012-04-22)
      Tactile navigation systems employ the use of ones sense of touch with haptic feedback to communicate directions. This type of navigation presents a potentially faster and more accurate mode of navigation than preexisting ...
    • Harnessing Certainty to Speed Task-Allocation Algorithms for Multi-Robot Systems 

      Irvin, Denise A
      Some problems are best solved by systems of multiple robots, in which each robot is assigned one task. A multi-robot system can, upon the start of a series of tasks, compute the optimal task allocation for best performance ...
    • Harvest and Isolate Skeletal Muscle Satellite Cells from Mice 

      Nguyen, Branden
      Skeletal muscle tissue exhibits many plastic properties, changing its size or function in response to a variety of stressors. This adaptability is due, in part, to satellite cells, a type of multipotent adult stem cell ...
