How did you measure ROS?
Brittney Anderson
34:36
Hi Dr. Turner. We measured ROS by staining the cells using the CellROX Green flow cytometry assays, then running them in the Flow cytometry machine to see where in the gating strategy they would appear. The gating strategies were created using the controls.
Robert Stolz
37:23
Hi Teh’ron, Thank you for sharing your presentation. Do you think there is a way to improve the accuracy of your results?
Joanne Luciano she/her/hers
38:42
Good afternoon Teh’ron, Thank you for sharing your presentation. Are there other features that you could consider as inputs?
Teh’Rhon Rabsatt
39:05
Hi Dr. Stolz. A method for possibly increasing accuracy would be to increase feature analysis.
Teh’Rhon Rabsatt
41:41
Hello Ms. Luciano, Other features I was considering was decibel levels of the audio and also note range of the audio as certain genres don’t use notes outside of a certain range.
Camille McKayle | she/her
41:45
Hello Sarai, can you share what part of the research you were responsible for? How is the data collected?
Angelique Lettsome
42:26
Is there any way to treat this disease?
Chloé Camacho
42:54
Hi Sarai, were you looking at any specific species of corals or were you just looking at all the corals overall ?
SAVANNAH CARROLL
44:07
Hello Sarai, I was just wondering how this disease spreads, whether it is through direct contact between corals or if the water currents can also spread the disease?
Sarai Hutchinson
45:55
We focused on the Colpophyllia natans coral colonies at those bays
Zach Briggs
47:09
Good afternoon Sarai, How much of the coral was covered in SKITTLES for it to be accepted for testing?
Verleen McSween
48:33
we can't see Donna's screen
Sarai Hutchinson
48:51
It has been suggested that disease is spread via water currents and so that might explain why it has been so widespread. I'm not entirely sure about direct contact.
Verleen McSween
49:01
yes
Sarai Hutchinson
50:47
At the smallest possible lesion or evidence of SCTLD, a portion of the colony at that diseased site was removed and then sampled

Donna, You mentioned a “novel.” But a novel is a fictional story. Did you read a story or a factual non-fiction book?
Donna Archer
59:37
Hi Dr. Turner, thank you so much for asking your question. Actually, the book mentioned by Dr. Chop to is a nonfiction story tailored to readers and physicians of all kind to overcome adversity. It’s offer mechanics that can be used to overcome adversity and offers stress management strategies as well.
Karyl Askew (she, hers)
01:00:37
Good day, Donna, thank you for presentation and elevating awareness of the role of mental health in STEM students success. From your study, what is one implication for university leaders or STEM students to support STEM success?
Donna Archer
01:00:43
Thank you for your question. I’m sorry I am having a bit difficulty. The author is Dr. Chopra.
Aaron Rapp (He/Him)
01:02:02
Elliana, what future work can come from this research?
K-Jel Smithen
01:05:36
👏🏿👏🏿👏🏿
Ellaina Wyllis
01:08:04
Thanks for the question Aaron. In the future we will first like to verify our data by correlating it with the abundance of effector domains we have in each condition. We would also like to observe these regulatory effects in living cells over time by using a different technique, such as the MS2-MCP system. We’re hoping that by understanding the mechanism by which these effector domains regulate transcription, we can try to figure out ways to inactive or upregulate their effects on certain genes.
Aaron Rapp (He/Him)

Good afternoon,
Symposium room (T216)
01:13:50
We are taking a short break until 2 pm.
Sarai Hutchinson
01:17:32
Thanks for the question Dr. McKayle. I was responsible for analyzing the sequenced DNA samples in R Studio and making graphical representations of this data.

Hi Dr. Askew, thank you. One implication is additional research, however, based on the data and research collected, a conclusion that could be drawn is that understanding what’s at the core of the soul of leadership can be significantly used to intervene with the psychosocial issues undergraduate and underrepresented students experience more effectively because the choices and strategies offered will be evaluated from an empathetical point of view rather than just from the technical point of view, and soul of leadership involves self evaluation, overcoming obstacles, and using those obstacles as a way to strengthen and inspire/motivate others to continue pursuing their goals and additionally to be the best version of themselves and to find their purpose. Soul of leadership can also be used to make STEM education more accessible to underrepresented student through activism.

01:24:40
Samuel and Chloe, Good Day, Which species weredead?
Verleen McSween
01:25:39
Hi Chloe and Sam do you plan to redo the tissue percentage aspect of your study with a different antibiotic or varying concentrations?
Donna Archer
01:28:14
Thank you Alexanne! Me. Carr that was wonderful!
Teresa Turner
01:28:31
Alexanne, In your reading did you find that subjective memory was correlated with objective memory problems?
Samuel Gittens Jr.
01:28:45
Good afternoon Dr. Turner, there were at least one from each of these species that were dead : Eusmilia fastigiata, Montastrea cavernosa, and Pseudodiploria strigosa
Michele Guannel
01:31:41
Great project!! Thank you for sharing these timely data.
Alexanne Carr
01:33:04
Hi Dr. Turner, the findings are divided. There are a couple reasons why there is not an easier response 1) very few studies used similar measures to be able to compare data and 2) subjective memory concerns are more correlated to depressive symptoms than objective cognition concerns.
Sarai Hutchinson
01:33:04
Great presentation! So would you say it's not possible that the lead could have been leached into the soil?
Chloé Camacho
01:33:58
Hi Dr. McSween. One reason why we used these metrics was so that the East End Marine Park can repeatedly take these measurements to compare the growth of the corals. So far the East End Marine Park has only tried using Amoxicillin to treat corals, so if a new method using a different antibiotic was created then redoing metric 3 (tissue percentage) would be possible.
AIMEE SANCHEZ

Please use the chat to share questions with Ashley
Joanne Luciano she/her/hers
01:44:01
Thank you for your presentation Naomi. Were you able to see any gene expression differences? Are there other pathway databases that you could include in your analysis?
Joanne Luciano she/her/hers
01:44:28
What challenges did you find when you attempted to bring the databases together?
Naomi Douglas
01:50:37
Hello Joanne, unfortunately, we were not able to see any gene expression differences due to the loss of time that hindered us from continuing on with the last three methodologies. If we had more time, we were going to use Galaxy to find those DEGs.
Teresa Turner
01:50:57
Ariane, Do you think that Virgin Islannders accommodate their speech when speaking with people from the mainland?
Teresa Turner
01:53:27
Congratulations Angelisa on having your abstract accepted?
Michele Guannel
01:55:12
Thank you Angelisa! This condensed version of your ECS talk really helps to focus on what we need to address for the American Anthropological Association panel. Thank you ECS for supporting this work over the summer!
Naomi Douglas
01:57:06
To answer your second question, there were only a few data sets that passed the selection criteria. Some patients only disclosed one or two of our three study demographics or did not disclose their disease states. Additionally, we were only using blood samples. Those were the major challenges I had in bringing the data together.
Joanne Luciano she/her/hers
01:58:13
Thank you for your presentation Jaiel, Will you make your mapping data public? I’ve often wanted a map of where the bins are located, and I know others have too. How will you make them public? We’d be happy to link to this on our data science.uvi.edu website.
Michele Guannel
01:59:58
Very data-rich and important project, Jaiel!
Robert Stolz
02:00:51
Hi Jaiel, Did you consider using different bin sizes?
Michele Guannel
02:03:16
Azriel, what are the expected transgressions in this study? Additionally, what are your thoughts about the terminology of "victim" versus "survivor"?
Joanne Luciano she/her/hers
02:03:56
Thank you for your presentation Azriel, how do you define and scope the meaning of the word “use” - how the information is / can be used? Is the meaning of “use” the same across all subjects? How do you assure that?
Jaiel Wyllis
02:05:09
Hi Joanne! I do want to make the mapping data public of the bin sites in St. Thomas. This is also a part of my future plans for this research. I have been putting a lot of thought into how I would make it public, but I have not pinpointed the optimal place to provide this information. I would be extremely happy to work with you to link this data to your website.
Michele Guannel
02:05:32
Thank you, Azriel.
AIMEE SANCHEZ
02:06:35
We encourage the audience to continue using the chat for questions and answer
Naomi Douglas
02:06:53
Good Afternoon Se-An, I would have loved to add the differentially expressed genes I would have found, but due to lack of time, I was sadly not able to carry out those analyses. With the data curation, there are other public data repositories, but GEO was the one that served our purpose. GEO had the annotations and the raw data we needed to find the variability at the RNA level of age, sex, and race gene expression of SLE in SLE patients compared to healthy individuals, so there wasn't anything else I could have done differently for that approach.
Joanne Luciano she/her/hers
02:08:00
Great Jaiel, reach out to me at joanne.luciano@uvi.edu — one obvious place would be on the waste management website. The data science team can work with you on putting the data the FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable).
AIMEE SANCHEZ
02:09:35
We are taking a short break and will be back at 3pm
Jaiel Wyllis
02:10:31
Hi Dr. Stolz! I did map the different types of bin sizes on ArcGIS. This was an important part of my project that VIWMA helped with as they provided the information necessary to know where the different type of bin sites was located. I also offered in the proposed bin sites to have different options of the types of bin sites in the candidates for additional waste disposal options.
Jaiel Wyllis
02:11:14
Will do Joanne!

Thank you for your presentation Gerlinder - What software are you using for your simulation? How are these simulations validated?
Aaron Rapp (He/Him)
02:26:23
Good afternoon Gerlinder. What program did you use to create/run these models? Also, were you able to answer your question of "can we see these events well after they have occurred?"
Rebecca Gibbel
02:31:06
Jackiema- thank you for your presentation. Have you considered cutting the sargassum into smaller particles to increase surface area and release of nutrients?
Joanne Luciano she/her/hers
02:34:37
Thank you for your presentation Jackiema. Will you be able to continue the research? Will you be making your survey results public? On another project we’re looking at food security an also use data on the increase of home farming. Being able to share data would benefit all these related efforts. Please follow up with me.

02:35:14
Hi Joanne. The program we used to actually run the simulations is an MHD modeling code called Zeus-MP. The simulation set up was taken from Dr. Staff previous work.
gerlinder difo
02:35:29
The program is called Zeus-MP, its an ideal MHD script. In the later part of the project, a UVA student Emiko Gardener did shock heating analysis of the simulation which showed the burst having a clear heating effect on the gas so we suspect that a burst may be detectable that way. This idea of chaotic star growth really started when observes noticed regions where young stars are growing sometimes spiked in the optical range. These brightening events are suspected to be a results of these accretions and outflow bursts.
