The referential communication of facial characteristics by deaf and normal-hearing adolescents by I. King Jordan( Archival Material )
3 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
In order to assess the characteristics of the manual communications of linguistically adult deaf individuals, six pairs of deaf adolescents and 24 pairs of normal hearing adolescents described photographic referents in a referential communication setting. The referents were photographs of people's faces, selected in a preliminary recognizability study to insure a range of difficulty from easily recognizable to almost chance recognition. Although the design was essentially exploratory and descriptive, there are several noteworthy results: (1) There was no difference between the two subject groups in the accuracy with which they communicated. Both groups scored extremely high. (2) The deaf group had a significantly faster rate of cue presentation. In other words, the deaf subjects managed to include more cues per unit of time than the normal hearing subjects. (3) The uncertainty ratio measures of the deaf subjects were significantly higher than those of the normal hearing subjects, That is, there was less intra-group, inter-subject cue commonality for the deaf subjects. (4) Analysis of the content of the descriptions showed that the deaf and normal hearing subjects included the same features in much the same order in their descriptions. (5) A comparison of the within-group correlations showed a striking difference between groups as far as the overall pattern of these correlations, suggesting a different underlying approach to the task. It appears, then, that for real-life-like stimuli such as those used in this study, the manual communications of linguistically adult deaf subjects are as efficient and successful as the verbal communications of the normal hearing subjects. While it was found that the two groups "talk about" much the same things, there is less intragroup commonality for the deaf subjects. Some interesting findings concerning the amount of fingerspelling used and the conserving of motions while signing are presented along with examples showing the difficulty of translating a signed utterance to written English. It is suggested that a referential communication setting might not be a valid tool for studying the limits of a language without making the setting artificial, and some follow-up studies are outlined

Effects of repetitive DNA and epigenetics on human genome regulation by Daudi Jjingo( file )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
The highly developed and specialized anatomical and physiological characteristics observed for eukaryotes in general and mammals in particular are underwritten by an elaborate and intricate process of genome regulation. This precise control of the location, timing and amplitude of gene expression is achieved by a variety of genetic and epigenetic tools and mechanisms. While several of these regulatory mechanisms have been extensively studied, our understanding of the complex and diverse associations between various epigenetic marks and genetic elements with genome regulatory systems has remained incomplete. However, the recent profound improvements in sequencing technologies have significantly improved the depth and breadth to which their functions and relationships can be understood. The objective of this thesis has been to apply bioinformatics, computational and statistical tools to analyze and interpret various recent high throughput datasets from a combination of Next generation sequencing and Chromatin immune precipitation (ChIP-seq) experiments. These datasets have been analyzed to further our understanding of the dynamics of gene regulation in humans, particularly as it relates to repetitive DNA, cis-regulation and DNA methylation. The thesis thus resides at the intersection of three major areas; transposable elements, cis-regulatory elements and epigenetics. It explores how those three aspects of regulation relate with gene expression and the functional implications of those interactions. From this analysis, the thesis provides new insights into; 1) the relationship between the transposable element environment of human genes and their expression, 2) the role of mammalian-wide interspersed repeats (MIRs) in the function of human enhancers and enhancement of tissue-specic functions, 3) the existence and function of composite cis-regulatory elements and 4) the dynamics and relationship between human gene-body DNA methylation and gene expression

Computational algorithm development for epigenomic analysis by Jianrong Wang( file )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Multiple computational algorithms were developed for analyzing ChIP-seq datasets of histone modifications. For basic ChIP-seq data processing, the problems of ambiguous short sequence read mapping and broad peak calling of diffuse ChIP-seq signals were solved by novel statistical methods. Their performance was systematically evaluated compared with existing approaches. The potential utility of finding meaningful biological information was demonstrated by the applications on real datasets. For biological question driven data mining, several important topics were selected for algorithm developments, including hypothesis-driven insulator prediction, unbiased chromatin boundary element discovery and combinatorial histone modification signature inference. The integrative computational pipeline for insulator prediction not only produced a list of putative insulators but also recovered specific associated chromatin and functional features. Selected predictions have been experimentally validated. The unbiased chromatin boundary element prediction algorithm was feature-free and had the capability to discover novel types of boundary elements. The predictions found a set of chromatin features and provided the first report of tRNA-derived boundary elements in the human genome. The combinatorial chromatin signature algorithm employed chromatin profile alignments for unsupervised inferences of histone modification patterns. The signatures were associated with various regulatory elements and functional activities. Both the computational advantages and the biological discoveries were discussed

Genome‐wide map of Apn1 binding sites under oxidative stress in Saccharomyces cerevisiae ( file )
1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Abstract: The DNA is cells is continuously exposed to reactive oxygen species resulting in toxic and mutagenic DNA damage. Although the repair of oxidative DNA damage occurs primarily through the base excision repair (BER) pathway, the nucleotide excision repair (NER) pathway processes some of the same lesions. In addition, damage tolerance mechanisms, such as recombination and translesion synthesis, enable cells to tolerate oxidative DNA damage, especially when BER and NER capacities are exceeded. Thus, disruption of BER alone or disruption of BER and NER in Saccharomyces cerevisiae leads to increased mutations as well as large‐scale genomic rearrangements. Previous studies demonstrated that a particular region of chromosome II is susceptible to chronic oxidative stress‐induced chromosomal rearrangements, suggesting the existence of DNA damage and/or DNA repair hotspots. Here we investigated the relationship between oxidative damage and genomic instability utilizing chromatin immunoprecipitation combined with DNA microarray technology to profile DNA repair sites along yeast chromosomes under different oxidative stress conditions. We targeted the major yeast AP endonuclease Apn1 as a representative BER protein. Our results indicate that Apn1 target sequences are enriched for cytosine and guanine nucleotides. We predict that BER protects these sites in the genome because guanines and cytosines are thought to be especially susceptible to oxidative attack, thereby preventing large‐scale genome destabilization from chronic accumulation of DNA damage. Information from our studies should provide insight into how regional deployment of oxidative DNA damage management systems along chromosomes protects against large‐scale rearrangements.
