Welcome to the repository for University of Maryland research.

The Digital Repository at the University of Maryland (DRUM) collects, preserves, and provides public access to the scholarly output of the university. Faculty and researchers can upload research products for rapid dissemination, global visibility and impact, and long-term preservation.

You can use DRUM to share and preserve a wide range of research products, such as:

  • Articles, papers, books, and technical reports
  • Data and code
  • Supplemental material for journal articles
  • Presentations and posters
  • Theses and dissertations

To get started, review our short guide to submitting your research.

You can track views and downloads of your research, and everything in DRUM is indexed by Google and Google Scholar. You receive a permanent DOI for your items, making it easy for other researchers to cite your work.

Depositing research in DRUM can help you satisfy data management and sharing requirements from the NSF, NIH, and other funding agencies and journals.

  • Molecular characterization and complete genome sequence of avian paramyxovirus type 4 prototype strain duck/Hong Kong/D3/75 

    Nayak, Baibaswata; Kumar, Sachin; Collins, Peter L; Samal, Siba K (Springer Nature, 2008-10-20)
    Avian paramyxoviruses (APMVs) are frequently isolated from domestic and wild birds throughout the world. All APMVs, except avian metapneumovirus, are classified in the genus Avulavirus of the family Paramyxoviridae. At ...
  • A method for analyzing censored survival phenotype with gene expression data 

    Wu, Tongtong; Sun, Wei; Yuan, Shinsheng; Chen, Chun-Houh; Li, Ker-Chau (Springer Nature, 2008-10-06)
    Survival time is an important clinical trait for many disease studies. Previous works have shown certain relationship between patients' gene expression profiles and survival time. However, due to the censoring effects of ...
  • Testing limits to airflow perturbation device (APD) measurements 

    Lopresti, Erika R; Johnson, Arthur T; Koh, Frank C; Scott, William H; Jamshidi, Shaya; Silverman, Nischom K (Springer Nature, 2008-10-31)
    The Airflow Perturbation Device (APD) is a lightweight, portable device that can be used to measure total respiratory resistance as well as inhalation and exhalation resistances. There is a need to determine limits to the ...
  • Comparative genomics of mutualistic viruses of Glyptapantelesparasitic wasps 

    Desjardins, Christopher A; Gundersen-Rindal, Dawn E; Hostetler, Jessica B; Tallon, Luke J; Fadrosh, Douglas W; Fuester, Roger W; Pedroni, Monica J; Haas, Brian J; Schatz, Michael C; Jones, Kristine M; Crabtree, Jonathan; Forberger, Heather; Nene, Vishvanath (Springer Nature, 2008-12-30)
    Polydnaviruses, double-stranded DNA viruses with segmented genomes, have evolved as obligate endosymbionts of parasitoid wasps. Virus particles are replication deficient and produced by female wasps from proviral sequences ...
  • Simple allele-discriminating PCR for cost-effective and rapid genotyping and mapping 

    Bui, Minh; Liu, Zhongchi (Springer Nature, 2009-01-08)
    Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are widely observed between individuals, ecotypes, and species, serving as an invaluable molecular marker for genetic, genomic, ecological and evolutionary studies. Although, a large ...
