    Nelms Department of Biology and Dr Lei Qian Department of Computer Science Abstract Caenorhabditis elegans also known as C elegans is said to be the model worm for scientific studies and inquiry Though this system is relatively simple with only around 1000 somatic cells in the hermaphrodite form much of their molecular and cellular function is homologous to that of Homo sapiens Using a compiled list of over 1200 C elegans genes expressed in dopamine DA neurons I set out to find the human homologs Along with the list of C elegans DA genes information from both the WormBase site and Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man OMIM site were also used This process however takes a lot of time to manually navigate and to decipher all of the information With the use of computer programming we simplified the process by establishing a program to annotate a list of genes In my second project I analyzed the dopamine neuron degeneration in C elegans that have been exposed to copper Patients with Parkinson s disease PD not only have dopaminergic neurodegeneration but also tend to have higher levels of metals such as iron copper and manganese in their systems With the hypothesis that exposure to metal can lead to neurodegeneration associated with early onset of PD I analyzed the effect that copper has on dopamine degeneration in the C elegans species and what genes were involved My experiment exhibited some dopamine degeneration This finding may correlate with the hypothesis and provide insight into Parkinson s disease and other diseases that involve dopaminergic neurodegeneration But I completed only one trial So my next step goal is to complete more trials to provide more conclusive result Mathematical Modeling of Immunity Interaction with Human Immunodeficiency Virus HIV Ashley Fuqua Department of Biology Advisor Dr Sanjukta Hota Department of Mathematics Abstract Human Immune Deficiency HIV virus infects CD4 Cells T cells whose function is to protect the human body from infections and diseases A healthy uninfected person has between 800 to 1200 CD4 cells per cubic millimeter of blood Once the CD4 cells count decreases to 200 cells per cubic millimeter the immunity is damaged and vulnerable to infections and diseases My goal of the project is to study mathematically how the HIV virus weakens the immune system A basic differential equation model is developed to describe the interaction of immune system of the body with HIV virus The equilibrium points both Disease Free and Endemic are determined and the basic reproductive ratio is found Finally I show how the model can be used to demonstrate the effect of antiviral therapy on reducing the infection rate due to the free virus Computational software Mathematica is used for all simulations and graphs included in the project Investigating New Dopaminergic Neuron Genes Zaria Maynard Department of Biology Alabama State University Advisor Dr Brian Nelms Department of Biology Abstract My research work consists of two individual projects The first project is a group project with Sharee and Cassie We

    research was to analyze mathematically the progression and transmission dynamics of the HIV epidemic and to perform stability analysis for the epidemic A three compartment model of HIV AIDS was developed based on the SIR epidemic model with the assumption that the recruitment rate to the susceptible group is proportional to the size of the susceptible population Both equilibrium points such as the disease free equilibrium point DFE and the endemic equilibrium point EE were found and the asymptotic stability at the equilibrium points was determined Conditions were derived for the system to be stable unstable or saddle at these equilibrium points and the numerical simulations were performed to illustrate the analytical results The result shows that the recruitment rate plays an important role in the stability analysis around both the equilibrium points DFE and EE In particular endemic equilibrium point was found to be stable if the recruitment rate is greater than the natural death rate but less than the infection rate 6 A Quantitative Analysis of SIR type Malaria Models Elisha Hall Advisor Dr Sanjukta Hota Department of Mathematics and Computer Science Fisk University Abstract Malaria is a parasitic infection transmitted by female Anopheles mosquitos which can be fatal if not treated The CDC reports Malaria had killed more than 627 000 people and created 207 million clinical episodes in 2012 alone With approximately 1 500 2 000 cases reported every year America is far from being isolated from this disease Sir Ronald Ross was the first to create an analytical model of Malaria and received a Nobel Prize for his work in 1902 Others such as Macdonald and Lotka have built upon this basis to give a refined view of the behavior of Malaria and treatment options Ross model a general Kermack McKendrick SIR type model is still being used as a basis to create further models of the Malaria epidemic This project is a comprehensive analysis of Ross and Ross Lotka models including determining the equilibrium points reproduction numbers and stability of the equilibrium point Further study is done to compare contrast both models 7 Fkh 8 Genomic Sequence Analysis Giwa Roquibat Advisor Dr Brian Nelms Department of Biology Fisk University Abstract Dopaminergic neurons of the midbrain are the main source of dopamine DA in the mammalian central nervous system Their loss is associated with one of the most prominent human neurological disorders Parkinson s disease PD Dopaminergic neurons play an important role in the control of multiple brain functions including voluntary movement and a broad array of behavioral processes such as mood addiction and stress The nematode roundworm C elegans is a model organism because it is genetically tractable has a short life span a well defined nervous system and is transparent thus the nervous system can be easily examined FKH 8 gene is highly expressed in dopamine neurons and crucial to the development and differentiation of these neurons Studying the FKH 8 gene provides a better understanding of the molecules needed for DA signaling
