The Community for Accredited Online Schools, a leading resource provider for higher education information, has compiled its list of Missouri’s best online colleges and universities for 2017. Of the 31 four-year schools that made the list, Webster University, University of Missouri Columbia, University of Central Missouri, Missouri State University Springfield and Lindenwood University scored the highest. Of the 8 two-year colleges that also made the list, Crowder College, Jefferson College, Mineral Area College and State Fair Community College were top scoring schools. “Online certificates and degrees are increasingly popular option, especially for students who are unable to complete their education in a traditional classroom environment because of scheduling or location,” said Doug Jones, CEO and founder of AccreditedSchoolsOnline.org. “These Missouri schools have distinguished themselves by offering the best online college programs in the state, maintaining high quality and accreditation standards and providing flexibility with a variety of degrees online.” To earn a spot on the “Best Online Schools in Missouri” list, colleges and universities must be accredited, public or private not-for-profit institutions. Each college is also judged based on additional data points such as the availability of financial aid opportunities, school counseling services, student/teacher ratios and graduation rates.

Biomotors were once described into two categories: linear motor and rotation motor. Recently, a third type of biomotor with revolution mechanism without rotation has been discovered. By analogy, rotation resembles the Earth rotating on its axis in a complete cycle every 24. h, while revolution resembles the Earth revolving around the Sun one circle per 365. days (see animations http://nanobio.uky.edu/movie.html). The action of revolution that enables a motor free of coiling and torque has solved many puzzles and debates that have occurred throughout the history of viral DNA packaging motor studies. It also settles the discrepancies concerning the structure, stoichiometry, and functioning of DNA translocation motors. This review uses bacteriophages Phi29, HK97, SPP1, P22, T4, and T7 as well as bacterial DNA translocase FtsK and SpoIIIE or the large eukaryotic dsDNA viruses such as mimivirus and vaccinia virus as examples to elucidate the puzzles. These motors use ATPase, some of which have been confirmed to be a hexamer, to revolve around the dsDNA sequentially. ATP binding induces conformational change and possibly an entropy alteration in ATPase to a high affinity toward dsDNA; but ATP hydrolysis triggers another entropic and conformational change in ATPase to a low affinity for DNA, by which dsDNA is pushed toward an adjacent ATPase subunit. The rotation and revolution mechanisms can be distinguished by the size of channel: the channels of rotation motors are equal to or smaller than 2. nm, that is the size of dsDNA, whereas channels of revolution motors are larger than 3. nm. Rotation motors use parallel threads to operate with a right-handed channel, while revolution motors use a left-handed channel to drive the right-handed DNA in an anti-chiral arrangement. Coordination of several vector factors in the same direction makes viral DNA-packaging motors unusually powerful and effective. Revolution mechanism that avoids DNA coiling in translocating the lengthy genomic dsDNA helix could be advantageous for cell replication such as bacterial binary fission and cell mitosis without the need for topoisomerase or helicase to consume additional energy. © 2014 Elsevier Inc.

The effects of plateau width and step-edge kinking on carbon monoxide (CO)-induced restructuring of platinum surfaces were explored using molecular dynamics (MD) simulations. Platinum crystals displaying four different vicinal surfaces [(321), (765), (112), and (557)] were constructed and exposed to partial coverages of carbon monoxide. Platinum-CO interactions were fit to recent experimental data and density functional theory (DFT) calculations, providing a classical interaction model that captures the atop binding preference on Pt. The differences in Pt-Pt binding strength between edge atoms on the various facets were found to play a significant role in step-edge wandering and reconstruction events. Because the mechanism for step doubling relies on a stochastic meeting of two wandering edges, the widths of the plateaus on the original surfaces were also found to play a role in these reconstructions. On the Pt(321) surfaces, the CO adsorbate was found to assist in reordering the kinked step edges into straight {100} edge segments. © 2016 American Chemical Society.
