Manganese in the sedimentary record has been interpreted by many as a powerful redox proxy for paleoenvironments, and yet very little work has been done to ensure that the manganese-rich minerals in the rock record are actually recording primary signals. In the accompanying manuscript, we present an in-depth characterization of the manganese mineralogy from two correlated regions recording the Transvaal Supergroup in South Africa with markedly different alteration histories to investigate if there can be post-depositional emplacement of manganese-rich minerals. The data uploaded here are X-ray absorption spectra of (1) manganese standard minerals that were useful in our analyses and (2) minerals from an important well-characterized sample that may be useful as comparative standards in future studies.
This project aimed to discover and analyze the molecular mechanism of synthesis of two particular fucosylated oligosaccharide products in a mutant enzyme, Thermatoga maratima Alpha-L-Fucosidase D224G, whose wild type performs the opposite reaction (cleavage of fucosyl glycosidic bonds). Discovery of the mechanism was performed using an unbiased simulations method known as aimless shooting, whereas analysis of the mechanism in terms of the energy profile was performed using a separate method known as equilibrium path sampling. The data here concerns the latter method. and The contents of the atesa_master.zip are the ATESA GitHub project. A Python program for automating transition path sampling with aimless shooting using Amber. https://github.com/team-mayes/atesa
The Liquid Metal Battery (LMB), a promising energy-storage device that contains liquid-metal interior, is studied numerically in the paper. The metal pad roll instability was modeled based on the open-source CFD software, OpenFOAM. It's based on the solver for simulations of incompressible multiphase flows multiphaseInterFoam modified to include the electromagnetic fields and account for the sharp variations of the electrical conductivity.

The main goal of this research was to identify potential molecular pathways that contribute to memory dysregulation and decline that persists long after illness or inflammation. We have previously established a subchronic immune challenge model that results in memory impairments months after the inflammatory challenge. This project aimed to determine whether memory impairments were accompanied by transcriptional dysregulation in memory related brain region (the hippocampus).
These data show the differential gene expression as log2fold change (and p-value) in males and females 3 months after immune challenge (Supp Tables 1 and 2); after a subsequent immune challenge (Supp Tables 3 and 4); the differential regulation of genes in males and females (Supp Table 5); genes differentially expressed in the hippocampus of males and females at baseline (Supp Table 6) and the differential regulation of those genes in males and females after immune challenge (Supp Tables 7,8).
This data is a subset of that originally produced as part of an effort to characterize GnRH neuron activity during prepubertal development in control and PNA mice and investigate the potential influences of sex and PNA treatment on this process (1). It was later used in (2) to further investigate the firing patterns of GnRH neurons in these categories of mice and determine how these patterns might differ based on age and treatment condition.
The data files can be opened and examined using Wavemetric's Igor Pro software. Code used to further examine and visualize the data can be found at https://gitlab.com/um-mip/mc-project-code.
