Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Correlated data are very common in health studies. Such data could come from longitudinal studies, community panel surveys, genetic family studies or spatial studies. Typically, linear mixed-effect models are used for modeling continuous response, and generalized… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Multilevel data are very common in sociological, behavioral and biomedical researches. The data could come from longitudinal community surveys, genetic family studies or spatial-temporal studies to investigate some health outcomes. Typically, the interest focuses… more
Abstract:Gene detection in soil using the Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) is nearly impossible due to the inhibitory affects of the components of soil, including humic acid. Currently, the DNA must be extracted from the soil in order to perform PCR. The DNA extraction/purification step is expensive and time… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The sensitivity of gene detection in blood specimens in important clinical and forensic PCR applications is limited due to inhibitory blood substances which reduce amplification efficiency and may lead to false negative results. Different pre-PCR treatments that… more
There are several categories such as “By Agency”, “By Year”, “By State” etc.
Select a checkbox within a category to refine your search results.
Each of your selections is listed in the “Narrow Search Filters” bar. You can uncheck these selections to remove them.
Search for Either Criteria
When you select multiple values within a category, the results will include values that match either of the selections.
For example, selecting “2005” and “2007” in the “By Year” category will display results that include either 2005 OR 2007 in the results.
Narrowing the Search Results
You can refine your search results across categories. To narrow down your results, select multiple values across different categories. The results will only include values that match the selections across the categories.
For example, selecting “2005” in the “By Year” category and “NASA” in the “By Agency” category will only display the results that contain both “2005” AND “NASA” in the results.
