Implementing automated facial expression recognition on mobile devices could provide an accessible diagnostic and therapeutic tool for those who struggle to recognize facial expressions, including children with developmental behavioral conditions such as autism. Despite recent advances in facial expression classifiers for children, existing models ...

Ultraviolet (UV) radiation can elicit both bactericidal and bacteriostatic activity depending on light parameters and targeted bacteria. Current methods based on bacterial growth on solid medium allow measurement of only bactericidal but not bacteriostatic activity, while liquid cultures exhibit low light penetration. Here, we propose a method to q...

Braiding is a highly automated process for manufacturing preforms directly from reinforcement yarns at large production volumes. The quality of braided textiles and the stability of the process can however be negatively affected by defects that occur during braiding. If such defects can be detected from fine process anomalies early during their for...

Immunohistochemistry has long been held as the gold standard for understanding the expression patterns of therapeutically relevant proteins to identify prognostic and predictive biomarkers. Patient selection for targeted therapy in oncology has successfully relied upon standard microscopy-based methodologies, such as single-marker brightfield chrom...

There is limited information regarding the morphometric relationships of panicle traits in oat (Avena sativa) and their contribution to phenology and growth, physiology, and pathology traits important for yield. To model panicle growth and development and identify genomic regions associated with corresponding traits, 10 diverse spring oat mapping p...

Introduction Solid tumors consist of tumor cells associated with stromal and immune cells, secreted factors and extracellular matrix (ECM), which together constitute the tumor microenvironment. Among stromal cells, activated fibroblasts, known as cancer-associated fibroblasts (CAFs) are of particular interest. CAFs secrete a plethora of ECM compone...

Introduction Monitoring water levels of ephemeral streams is a difficult yet important task in hydrology, especially when studying minor river flows in remote areas. The installation of flow gauging stations on upstream tributaries is impacted by the lack of economic resources, by accessibility problems and unstable morphological conditions of rive...

Collective cell migration is critical for proper embryonic development, wound healing, and cancer cell invasion. However, much of our knowledge of cell migration has been performed using flat surfaces that lack topographical features and do not recapitulate the complex fibrous architecture of the extracellular matrix (ECM). The recent availability ...

The abyssal plains are vast areas without large scale relief that occupy much of the ocean floor. Although long considered relatively featureless, they are now known to display substantial biological heterogeneity across different spatial scales. Ecological research in these regions benefits increasingly from non-destructive visual sampling of epif...
