A dataset of acoustic impulse responses for microphones worn on the body. Microphones were placed at 80 positions on the body of a human subject and a plastic mannequin. The impulse responses can be used to study the acoustic effects of the body and can be convolved with sound sources to simulate wearable audio devices and microphone arrays. The dataset also includes measurements with different articles of clothing covering some of the microphones and with microphones placed on different hats and accessories. The measurements were performed from 24 angles of arrival in an acoustically treated laboratory. Related Paper: Ryan M. Corey, Naoki Tsuda, and Andrew C. Singer. "Acoustic Impulse Responses for Wearable Audio Devices," IEEE International Conference on Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing (ICASSP), Brighton, UK, May 2019. All impulse responses are sampled at 48 kHz and truncated to 500 ms. The impulse response data is provided in WAVE audio and MATLAB data file formats. The microphone locations are provided in tab-separated-value files for each experiment and are also depicted graphically in the documentation. The file wearable_mic_dataset_full.zip contains both WAVE- and MATLAB-format impulse responses. The file wearable_mic_dataset_matlab.zip contains only MATLAB-format impulse responses.

Molloy, Erin K.; Warnow, Tandy (2018): NJMerge: A generic technique for scaling phylogeny estimation methods and its application to species trees. University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. https://doi.org/10.13012/B2IDB-1424746_V1
This repository includes scripts, datasets, and supplementary materials for the study, "NJMerge: A generic technique for scaling phylogeny estimation methods and its application to species trees", presented at RECOMB-CG 2018. The supplementary figures and tables referenced in the main paper can be found in njmerge-supplementary-materials.pdf. The latest version of NJMerge can be downloaded from Github: https://github.com/ekmolloy/njmerge. ***When downloading datasets, please note that the following errors.*** In README.txt, lines 37 and 38 should read: + fasttree-exon.tre contains lines 1-25, 1-100, or 1-1000 of fasttree-total.tre + fasttree-intron.tre contains lines 26-50, 101-200, or 1001-2000 of fasttree-total.tre Note that the file names (fasttree-exon.tre and fasttree-intron.tre) are swapped. In tools.zip, the compare_trees.py and the compare_tree_lists.py scripts incorrectly refer to the "symmetric difference error rate" as the "Robinson-Foulds error rate". Because the normalized symmetric difference and the normalized Robinson-Foulds distance are equal for binary trees, this does not impact the species tree error rates reported in the study. This could impact the gene tree error rates reported in the study (see data-gene-trees.csv in data.zip), as FastTree-2 returns trees with polytomies whenever 3 or more sequences in the input alignment are identical. Note that the normalized symmetric difference is always greater than or equal to the normalized Robinson-Foulds distance, so the gene tree error rates reported in the study are more conservative. In njmerge-supplementary-materials.pdf, the alpha parameter shown in Supplementary Table S2 is actually the divisor D, which is used to compute alpha for each gene as follows. 1. For each gene, a random value X between 0 and 1 is drawn from a uniform distribution. 2. Alpha is computed as -log(X) / D, where D is 4.2 for exons, 1.0 for UCEs, and 0.4 for introns (as stated in Table S2). Note that because the mean of the uniform distribution (between 0 and 1) is 0.5, the mean alpha value is -log(0.5) / 4.2 = 0.16 for exons, -log(0.5) / 1.0 = 0.69 for UCEs, and -log(0.5) / 0.4 = 1.73 for introns.

Miller, Andrew N. (2018): Next-gen sequencing and metadata analyses of Great Lakes fungal data. University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. https://doi.org/10.13012/B2IDB-9320144_V2
The data set consists of Illumina sequences derived from 48 sediment samples, collected in 2015 from Lake Michigan and Lake Superior for the purpose of inventorying the fungal diversity in these two lakes. DNA was extracted from ca. 0.5g of sediment using the MoBio PowerSoil DNA isolation kits following the Earth Microbiome protocol. PCR was completed with the fungal primers ITS1F and fITS7 using the Fluidigm Access Array. The resulting amplicons were sequenced using the Illumina Hi-Seq2500 platform with rapid 2 x 250nt paired-end reads. The enclosed data sets contain the forward read files for both primers, both fixed-header index files, and the associated map files needed to be processed in QIIME. In addition, enclosed are two rarefied OTU files used to evaluate fungal diversity. All decimal latitude and decimal longitude coordinates of our collecting sites are also included.

Fernandez, Roberto; Parker, Gary; Stark, Colin P. (2019): Meltwater Meandering Channels on Ice: Centerlines and Images. University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. https://doi.org/10.13012/B2IDB-4384362_V1
This dataset includes images and extracted centerlines from experiments looking at the formation and evolution of meltwater meandering channels on ice. The laboratory data includes centimeter- and millimeter-scale rivulets. Dataset also includes an image and corresponding centerlines from the Peterman Ice Island. All centerlines were manually digitized in Matlab but no distributable code was developed for the process. Once digitized, centerlines were smoothed and standardized following methods and routines developed by other authors (Zolezzi and Guneralp, 2016; Guneralp and Rhoads, 2008). Details about the preparation of the centerlines and processing with these methods is included in the dissertation by Fernández (2018) linked to this dataset. "Millimeter scale and Peterman Ice Island centerlines.pdf": This file includes the images of two mm-scale experimetns and the Peterman Ice Island image. Seventeen centerlines were digitized from the former and seven were digitized from the latter. Those centerlines are shown above the images themselves. "Centimeter scale rivulet images.pdf": This file includes images corresponding to all cm-scale centerlines used for the analysis presented in the dissertation by Fernandez (2018). Each image has a short caption indicating the run ID and the time at which it was captured. The images were used to extract centerlines to look at the planform evolution of cm-scale meltwater meandering rivulets on ice. Images include 26 centerlines from four different runs. "Meltwater meandering channel centerlines.xlsx": This spreadsheet contains the centerline data for all fifty centerlines. The workbook includes 51 sheets. The first 50 are related to each one of the channels. The mm scale and Peterman Ice Island ones are identified using the same IDs shown in "Millimeter scale and Peterman Ice Island centerlines.pdf". The cm-scale centerlines are identified by run ID and a number indicating the time in minutes (with t = 0 min being the time at which water started flowing over the ice block). The naming convention is also associated to the images in "Centimeter scale rivulet images.pdf". The last sheet in the workbook includes a summary of the channel widths measured from every image for each centerline. The 50 sheets with the centerline information have four columns each. The titles of the columns are X, Y, S, and C. X,Y are dimensionless coordinates of the centerline. S is dimensionless streamwise coordinate (location along the centerline). C is dimensionless curvature value. All these values were non-dimensionalized with the channel width. See Fernandez (2018), Zolezzi and Guneralp (2016), and Guneralp and Rhoads (2008) for more details regarding the process of smoothing, standardizing and non-dimensionalization of the centerline coordinates.

Chronic contact exposure to realistic soil concentrations (0, 7.5, 15, and 100 ppb) of the neonicotinoid pesticide imidacloprid had species- and sex-specific effects on bee adult longevity, immature development speed, and mass. This dataset contains a life table tracking the development, mass, and deaths of a single cohort of Osmia lignaria and Megachile rotundata over the course of two summers. Other data files include files created for multi-event survival analysis to analyze the effect on development speed. Detected effects included: decreased adult longevity for female O. lignaria at the highest concentration, a trend for a hormetic effect on female M. rotundata development speed and mass (longest development time and greatest mass in the 15 ppb treatment), and decreased adult longevity and increased development speed at high imidacloprid concentrations as well as a hormetic effect on mass (lowest in the 15 ppb treatment treatment) on male M. rotundata.

This dataset is provided to support the statements in Tarokh, A., and R.Y. Makhnenko. 2019. Remarks on the solid and bulk responses of fluid-filled porous rock, Geophysics. The unjacketed bulk modulus is a poroelastic parameter that can be directly measured in a laboratory test under a loading that preserves the difference between the mean stress and pore pressure constant. For a monomineralic rock, the measurement of the unjacketed bulk modulus is ignored because it is assumed to be equal to the bulk modulus of the solid phase. To examine this assumption, we tested porous sandstones (Berea and Dunnville) and limestones (Apulian and Indiana) mainly composed of quartz and calcite, respectively, under the unjacketed condition. The presence of microscale inhomogeneities, in the form of non-connected (occluded) pores, was shown to cause a considerable difference between the unjacketed bulk modulus and the bulk modulus of the solid phase. Furthermore, we found the unjacketed bulk modulus to be independent of the unjacketed pressure and Terzaghi effective pressure and therefore a constant.

We have recently created an approach for high throughput single cell measurements using matrix assisted laser desorption / ionization mass spectrometry (MALDI MS) (J Am Soc Mass Spectrom. 2017, 28, 1919-1928. doi: 10.1007/s13361-017-1704-1. Chemphyschem. 2018, 19, 1180-1191. doi: 10.1002/cphc.201701364). While chemical detail is obtained on individual cells, it has not been possible to correlate the chemical information with canonical cell types. Now we combine high-throughput single cell mass spectrometry with immunocytochemistry to determine lipid profiles of two known cell types, astrocytes and neurons from the rodent brain, with the work appearing as “Lipid heterogeneity between astrocytes and neurons revealed with single cell MALDI MS supervised by immunocytochemical classification” (DOI: 10.1002/anie.201812892). Here we provide the data collected for this study. The dataset provides the raw data and script files for the rodent cerebral cells described in the manuscript.
