A Fermi Gamma-Ray Burst Monitor Search for Electromagnetic Signals Coincident with Gravitational-wave Candidates in Advanced LIGO's First Observing Run
(IOP Publishing, 2019-01-20)
We present a search for prompt gamma-ray counterparts to compact binary coalescence gravitational wave (GW) candidates from Advanced LIGO's first observing run (O1). As demonstrated by the multimessenger observations of ...
Search for pair production of Higgs bosons in the b(b)over-barb(b)over-bar final state using proton-proton collisions at root s=13 TeV with the ATLAS detector
A search for Higgs boson pair production in the bb¯¯bb¯¯ final state is carried out with up to 36.1 fb−1 of LHC proton-proton collision data collected at s√=13 TeV with the ATLAS detector in 2015 and 2016. Three ...
Multi-Ancestry Genome-Wide Association Study of Lipid Levels Incorporating Gene-Alcohol Interactions.
(Oxford University Press, 2019-01-29)
An individual's lipid profile is influenced by genetic variants and alcohol consumption, but the contribution of interactions between these exposures has not been studied. We therefore incorporated gene-alcohol interactions ...
Search for single production of vector-like quarks decaying to a top quark and a W boson in proton-proton collisions at TeV
A search is presented for the single production of vector-like quarks in proton–proton collisions at s√=13TeV . The data, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 35.9 fb−1 , were recorded with the CMS experiment ...
Multi-ancestry genome-wide gene-smoking interaction study of 387,272 individuals identifies new loci associated with serum lipids
(Nature Research (part of Springer Nature), 2019-03-29)
The concentrations of high- and low-density-lipoprotein cholesterol and triglycerides are influenced by smoking, but it is unknown whether genetic associations with lipids may be modified by smoking. We conducted a ...
Multi-ancestry study of blood lipid levels identifies four loci interacting with physical activity.
(Nature Research (part of Springer Nature), 2019-01-22)
Many genetic loci affect circulating lipid levels, but it remains unknown whether lifestyle factors, such as physical activity, modify these genetic effects. To identify lipid loci interacting with physical activity, we ...
