of software product lines.

  • $200,558 from the National Science Foundation to Patrick Schnable, professor of agronomy and associate director of the Plant Sciences Institute, to study genome evolution in natural populations of polyploid organisms.

  • $193,008 from the National Institutes of Health to W. Allen Miller, professor of plant pathology and director of the Center for Plant Responses to Environmental Stresses, to study how some viruses use a unique mechanism to avoid host defenses and take over the host's protein synthesis machinery.

  • $174,993 from the National Science Foundation to Maria Axenovich, an associate professor of mathematics, to use discrete mathematics to manipulate large amounts of information, benefitting computer science and biological studies.

  • $169,982 from the National Science Foundation to Dan Nordman, an assistant professor of statistics, to develop efficient and accurate statistical methods for dependent data.

  • $99,913 from the National Science Foundation to Jeramy Ashlock, an assistant professor of civil, construction and environmental engineering, to develop methods to describe how the piles of building foundations interact with soil under dynamic loads and earthquakes, and to increase the accuracy of computer simulations of the interactions.

  • $51,710 from the National Institutes of Health to Daisy Leung, an assistant scientist for the department of biochemistry, biophysics and molecular biology, to study how Ebola viral proteins allow it to rapidly replicate and inhibit a body's antiviral response.
