    Commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) software products are increasingly used as standard components within integrated information systems. This creates challenges since both their developers and source code are not usually ...
  • Activity and magnetic field structure of the Sun-like planet-hosting star HD 1237 

    Alvarado-Gómez, J.D.; Hussain, Gaitee Ara Jaffer; Grunhut, J.; Fares, Rim; Donati, J.-F.; Alecian, E.; Kochukhov, O.; Oksala, M.; Morin, J.; Redfield, S.; Cohen, O.; Drake, J.J.; Jardine, Moira Mary; Matt, S.; Petit, P.; Walter, F.M. (2015-10) - Journal article
    We analyse the magnetic activity characteristics of the planet-hosting Sun-like star, HD 1237, using HARPS spectro-polarimetric time-series data. We find evidence of rotational modulation of the magnetic longitudinal field ...
  • The activity of amyloid beta binding alcohol dehydrogenase in Alzheimer's disease 

    Allen, Zoe Eleanor (2012-11-30) - Thesis
    The mitochondria are a vibrant hub for many problems that occur in Alzheimer’s disease. The enzyme amyloid-ß binding alcohol dehydrogenase (ABAD) and Cyclophilin D (CypD) are two key mitochondrial proteins that have ...
  • Activity profiles and hook-tool use of New Caledonian crows recorded by bird-borne video cameras 

    Troscianko, Jolyon; Rutz, Christian (2015-12-23) - Journal article
    New Caledonian crows are renowned for their unusually sophisticated tool behaviour. Despite decades of fieldwork, however, very little is known about how they make and use their foraging tools in the wild, which is largely ...
  • Activity-dependent development of the locomotor network in Xenopus laevis larvae 

    Bender, Franziska (University of St Andrews, 2012-11-30) - Thesis
    The impact of activity in Xenopus embryonic and larval development was studied with regards to the locomotor system and developmental rate. The data suggest that pharmacologically suppressing neuronal and muscular activity ...
  • Ad hoc Cloud computing 

    McGilvary, Gary; Barker, Adam David; Atkinson, Malcolm (IEEE Computer Society, 2015) - Conference item
    This paper presents the first complete, integrated and end-to-end solution for ad hoc cloud computing en- vironments. Ad hoc clouds harvest resources from existing sporadically available, non-exclusive (i.e. primarily used ...
