  • Random search with resetting as a strategy for optimal pollination. [Journal Article]
    Phys Rev E 2019; 99(5-1):052119Robin T, Hadany L, Urbakh M
  • The problem of pollination is unique among a wide scope of search problems, since it requires optimization of benefits for both the searcher (pollinator) and its targets (plants). To address this challenge, we propose a pollination model which is based on a framework of first passage under stochastic restart. We derive equations for the search time and number of visited plants as functions of the…
  • Endometrial cancer and bariatric surgery: A scoping review. [Review]
    Surg Obes Relat Dis 2019; 15(3):497-501Aubrey C, Black K, … Pin S
  • CONCLUSIONS: There is ample evidence demonstrating a risk reduction in women with obesity (body mass index >30 kg/m2) undergoing bariatric surgery for subsequent development of endometrial cancer. However, there is a paucity of data investigating its role as an adjunct for therapy. There is sufficient evidence to argue for the inclusion of endometrial hyperplasia and endometrial cancer as obesity-related conditions and the access to bariatric surgery should be broadened for affected individuals to reflect this.
  • Developing an efficient protocol for monitoring eagle fatalities at wind energy facilities. [Journal Article]
    PLoS One 2018; 13(12):e0208700Hallingstad EC, Rabie PA, … Nagy LR
  • Researchers typically conduct fatality monitoring to determine a wind energy facility's direct impacts on wildlife. In the United States, wind energy impacts on eagles have received increased attention in recent years because eagle incidental take permits became available. Permit holders are required to conduct fatality monitoring to evaluate compliance with permitted eagle take. Our objective wa…
  • Cysmotif Searcher Pipeline for Antimicrobial Peptide Identification in Plant Transcriptomes. [Journal Article]
    Biochemistry (Mosc) 2018; 83(11):1424-1432Shelenkov AA, Slavokhotova AA, Odintsova TI
  • In this paper, we present the new Cysmotif searcher pipeline for identification of various antimicrobial peptides (AMPs), the most important components of innate immunity, in plant transcriptomes. Cysmotif searcher reveals and classifies short cysteine-rich amino acid sequences containing an open reading frame and a signal peptide cleavage site. Due to the combination of various search methods, C…
  • Search and return model for stochastic path integrators. [Journal Article]
    Chaos 2018; 28(10):106302Noetel J, Freitas VLS, … Schimansky-Geier L
  • We extend a recently introduced prototypical stochastic model describing uniformly the search and return of objects looking for new food sources around a given home. The model describes the kinematic motion of the object with constant speed in two dimensions. The angular dynamics is driven by noise and describes a "pursuit" and "escape" behavior of the heading and the position vectors. Pursuit be…
  • Optimal noise in a stochastic model for local search. [Journal Article]
    Phys Rev E 2018; 98(2-1):022128Noetel J, Freitas VLS, … Schimansky-Geier L
  • We develop a prototypical stochastic model for a local search around a given home. The stochastic dynamic model is motivated by experimental findings of the motion of a fruit fly around a given spot of food but will generally describe the local search behavior. The local search consists of a sequence of two epochs. In the first the searcher explores new space around the home, whereas it returns t…
