  • Effects of trypsin on cellular, chromosomal and DNA damage induced by X-rays 

    Sprunt, Elizabeth A. (University of St Andrews, 1990) - Thesis
    When cells are trypsinized before irradiation, potentiation of cell killing is seen; this is known as the 'trypsin effect'. The trypsin effect is re-examined here in the light of experiments in which enzymatic modifications ...

    Identifying with a group can contribute to a sense of well-being. The mechanisms involved are diverse: social identification with a group can impact individuals' beliefs about issues such as their connections with others, ...
  • The efficiency of selection in the early generations of a potato breeding programme 

    Brown, Jack (University of St Andrews, 1988) - Thesis
    The efficiency of selection in the early generations of a potato breeding programme is examined. A number of unselected potato (Solanum tuberosum L) clones were grown in a glasshouse, from true botanical seed, and ...
  • Efficient abstracting of dive profiles using a broken-stick model 

    Photopoulou, T.; Lovell, Philip; Fedak, M.A.; Thomas, L.; Matthiopoulos, J. (2015-03) - Journal article
    For diving animals, animal-borne sensors are used to collect time-depth information for studying behaviour, ranging patterns and foraging ecology. Often, this information needs to be compressed for storage or transmission. ...
  • An efficient acoustic density estimation method with human detectors applied to gibbons in Cambodia 

    Kidney, Darren; Rawson, Benjamin M.; Borchers, David Louis; Stevenson, Ben; Marques, Tiago A.; Thomas, Len (2016-05-19) - Journal article
    Some animal species are hard to see but easy to hear. Standard visual methods for estimating population density for such species are often ineffective or inefficient, but methods based on passive acoustics show more promise. ...
  • Efficient amplitude-modulated pulses for triple- to single-quantum coherence conversion in MQMAS NMR 

    Colaux, Henri; Dawson, Daniel M; Ashbrook, Sharon E (2014-07-21) - Journal article
    The conversion between multiple- and single-quantum coherences is integral to many nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) experiments of quadrupolar nuclei. This conversion is relatively inefficient when effected by a single ...
