Burkholderia pseudomallei sequencing identifies genomic clades with distinct recombination, accessory, and epigenetic profiles
(2015-01) - Journal article,
Burkholderia pseudomallei (Bp) is the causative agent of the infectious disease melioidosis. To investigate population diversity, recombination, and horizontal gene transfer in closely related Bp isolates, we performed ...
Scotland's eroding heritage : a collaborative response to the impact of climate change
(2017-11-20) - Journal article,
Modelling Langford's Problem : a viewpoint for search
(2018-08-27) - Conference item,
The performance of enumerating all solutions to an instance of Langford's Problem is sensitive to the model and the search strategy. In this paper we compare the performance of a large variety of models, all derived from ...
Design and development of a complex narrative intervention delivered by text messages to reduce binge drinking among socially disadvantaged men
(2018-06-06) - Journal article,
Background: Socially disadvantaged men are at high risk of suffering from alcohol-related harm. Disadvantaged groups are less likely to engage with health promotion. There is a need for interventions that reach large numbers ...
Lack of behavioural responses of humpback whales (Megaptera novaeangliae) indicate limited effectiveness of sonar mitigation
(2017-11-15) - Journal article,
Exposure to underwater sound can cause permanent hearing loss and other physiological effects in marine animals. To reduce this risk, naval sonars are sometimes gradually increased in intensity at the start of transmission ...
Open population maximum likelihood spatial capture-recapture
(2017-09-04) - Journal article,
Open population capture-recapture models are widely used to estimate population demographics and abundance over time. Bayesian methods exist to incorporate open population modelling with spatial capture-recapture, allowing ...
Distinct evolutionary patterns of Neisseria meningitidis serogroup B disease outbreaks at two universities in the USA
(2018-04) - Journal article,
Neisseria meningitidis serogroup B (MnB) was responsible for two independent meningococcal disease outbreaks at universities in the USA during 2013. The first at University A in New Jersey included nine confirmed cases ...
All-cis 1,2,3,4,5,6-hexafluorocyclohexane is a facially polarised cyclohexane
(2015-04) - Journal article,
The highest-energy stereoisomer of 1,2,3,4,5,6-hexafluorocyclohexane, in which all of the fluorines are ‘up’, is prepared in a 12-step protocol. The molecule adopts a classic chair conformation with alternate C–F bonds ...
Inter and Intraspecific genomic divergence in Drosophila montana shows evidence for cold adaptation
(2018-08-01) - Journal article,
The genomes of species that are ecological specialists will likely contain signatures of genomic adaptation to their niche. However, distinguishing genes related to ecological specialism from other sources of selection and ...
Closed frequent itemset mining with arbitrary side constraints
(IEEE Computer Society, 2018-11-17) - Conference item,
Frequent itemset mining (FIM) is a method for finding regularities in transaction databases. It has several application areas, such as market basket analysis, genome analysis, and drug design. Finding frequent itemsets ...
