1. Flora IV, Ernest. Instant Schools: The Frenzied Formation And Early Days Of The Mississippi Private School Association.

Degree: PhD, Education, 2020, University of Mississippi

The founding leadership of the Mississippi Private School Association (MPSA) used individual experience and extensive networking via the Citizens’ Council along with the community’s belief and desire to maintain white-only schools to create a coalition of quickly formed but well-resourced private schools. This political and social clout afforded them the ability to create a large, powerful organization almost “instantly” during a pivotal moment of southern educational history. Scholar Kenneth T. Andrews called the establishment of all-white academies in Mississippi, “a countermovement strategy that flowed out of the prior history of organized white resistance to the civil-rights movement.” The significance of this narrative lies in timing and ambitious, aggressive scope of the organization. In the fall of 1964 there were nine private day schools in Mississippi that were not affiliated with either the military or the Catholic Church. The MPSA officially formed in 1968 and by 1972 the organization had an enrollment of 30,515 students spread across 110+ schools in four states. Not only is the organization’s rapid growth significant in the understanding of reactions to the Civil Rights movement, but also the roots and style of its leadership. The individuals that founded the MPSA and sat on the executive committee were seasoned organization builders that utilized their networks and experiences as influential members of the Citizens Council to quickly buttress the MPSA. Because these Mississippi leaders believed that forcible integration of their segregated schools by the United States government was imminent, they organized an association of private schools that would allow white Mississippians to take ownership of all local education processes and norms. By providing a legitimate alternative to the state’s public schools that was fully accredited, comparable with resources, including a full slate of extracurricular activities, these men were able to drastically mitigate against the equity for all children that was intended when K-12 education in Mississippi was integrated.

2. Dupont, Pierre-Yves. Conception d'outils bioinformatiques pour la modélisation de voies métaboliques et de leur régulation : Designing bioinformatic tools to model metabolic pathways and their regulation.

Degree: Docteur es, Doctorat d'université (médecine), 2011, Clermont-Ferrand 1

La biologie des systèmes actuelle s’appuie sur des techniques d’analyse biologique à haut débit comme la transcriptomique ou la métabolomique. Cependant, ces techniques haut débit ont leurs limites et peuvent générer des erreurs. En croisant les résultats de différentes techniques d’analyse biologique, nous espérons pallier une partie de leurs limites. À cet effet, nous avons commencé à développer une plateforme de modélisation, MPSA (Metabolic Pathways Software Analyzer), permettant d’intégrer les données générées à des réseaux métaboliques. MPSA permet de représenter les graphes de voies métaboliques, d’effectuer des simulations basées sur la résolution de systèmes d’équations différentielles et d’étudier la structure des réseaux métaboliques par le calcul et la représentation des modes élémentaires. Nous avons développé différentes applications web permettant, d’une part, l’interprétation des résultats biologiques en utilisant des bases de données et, d’autre part, leur export vers MPSA. La base de données centrale de ce développement est myKegg, incluant l’ensemble des voies métaboliques humaines de la base de données publique KEGG ainsi qu’une base de synonymes construite elle aussi à partir de KEGG. Cette base permet d’identifier des voies métaboliques et de les importer dans MPSA. Une base de données de métabolomique, BioNMR, a aussi été construite spécifiquement pour organiser les résultats générés à partir de spectres de RMN. Une autre application web, GeneProm, a été développée pour l’analyse de promoteurs de gènes ou promotologie. Un protocole d’étude a été mis au point et testé sur un groupe de 4 gènes codant pour les isoformes 1 à 4 de la protéine ANT, transporteur mitochondrial d’ATP, chacune ayant un rôle et un profil d’expression spécifique dans la bioénergétique cellulaire. L’étude par promotologie de ces 4 gènes a permis d’identifier des éléments de régulation spécifiques dans leurs séquences promotrices et d’identifier des gènes potentiellement co-régulés. Ces gènes peuvent ensuite être exportés vers notre plateforme MPSA. L’ensemble de ce développement sera inclus au projet de plateforme intégrative de l’Unité de Nutrition Humaine de l’INRA.

Current systems biology relies on high-throughput biological analysis techniques such as transcriptomics or metabolomics. However, these techniques may generate errors. By crossing results from different analysis techniques, we hope to avoid at least part of these limits. For that purpose, we started to develop a modeling platform, MPSA (Metabolic Pathways Software Analyzer). MPSA allows integrating biological data on metabolic pathways. MPSA also ensures the display of metabolic pathways graphs, the simulation of models based on ordinary differential equations systems solving and the study of network structures using elementary flux modes. We have developed several web applications allowing on the one hand to interpret biological results by using databases, and on the other hand to export these data to MPSA. The main database of this work is myKegg. It…

3. Guymon, Clint Gordon. MPSA Effects on Copper Electrodeposition: Understanding Molecular Behavior at the Electrochemical Interface.

Degree: PhD, 2005, Brigham Young University

In this work the structure of the electrochemical metal-liquid interface is determined through use of quantum mechanics, molecular simulation, and experiment. Herein are profiled the molecular dynamics details and results of solid-liquid interfaces at flat non-specific solid surfaces and copper metal electrodes. Ab initio quantum-mechanical calculations are reported and define the interatomic potentials in the simulations. Some of the quantum-mechanical calculations involve small copper clusters interacting with 3-mercaptopropanesulfonic acid (MPSA), sodium, chloride, bisulfate and cuprous ions. In connection with these I develop the electrode charge dynamics (ECD) routine to treat the charge mobility in a metal. ECD bridges the gap between small-scale metal-cluster ab initio calculations and large-scale simulations of metal surfaces of arbitrary geometry. As water is the most abundant surface species in aqueous systems, water determines much of the interfacial dynamics. In contrast to prior simulation work, simulations in this work show the presence of a dense 2D ice-like rhombus structure of water on the surface that is relatively impervious to perturbation by typical electrode charges. I also find that chloride ions are adsorbed at both positive and negative electrode potentials, in agreement with experimental findings. Including internal modes of vibration in the water model enhances the ion contact adsorption at the solid surface. In superconformal filling of copper chip interconnects, organic additives are used to bottom-up fill high-aspect ratio trenches or vias. I use molecular dynamics and rotating-disk-electrode experiments to provide insight into the function of MPSA, one such additive. It is concluded that the thiol head group of MPSA inhibits copper deposition by preferentially occupying the active surface sites. The sulfonate head group participates in binding the copper ions and facilitating their transfer to the surface. Chloride ions reduce the work function of the copper electrode, reduce the binding energy of MPSA to the copper surface, and attenuate the binding of copper ions to the sulfonate head group of MPSA.
