Incorporating Model Uncertainty into the Sequential Importance Sampling Framework using a Model Averaging Approach, or Trans-Dimensional Sequential Importance Sampling.
(CREEM, University of St Andrews, 2007) - Report,
A sequential Bayesian Monte Carlo approach is proposed in which model space can be explored during the Sequential Importance Sampling (SIS, a.k.a. Particle Filtering) fitting process. The algorithm allows model space to ...
Changes in cardiac Na+/K+-ATPase expression and activity in female rats fed a high fat diet
(2017-12) - Journal article,
The aim of this study was to investigate whether the presence of endogenous estradiol alters the effects of a high-fat (HF) diet on activity/expression of the cardiac Na+/K+-ATPase, via PI3K/IRS and RhoA/ROCK signalling ...
The rhizoferrin biosynthetic gene in the fungal pathogen Rhizopus delemar is a novel member of the NIS gene family
(2017-08) - Journal article,
Iron is essential for growth and in low iron environments such as serum many bacteria and fungi secrete ferric iron-chelating molecules called siderophores. All fungi produce hydroxamate siderophores with the exception of ...
Sterol 14α-demethylase mutation leads to amphotericin B resistance in Leishmania mexicana
(2017-06-16) - Journal article,
Amphotericin B has emerged as the therapy of choice for use against the leishmaniases. Administration of the drug in its liposomal formulation as a single injection is being promoted in a campaign to bring the leishmaniases ...
The genome sequence of the wisent (Bison bonasus)
(2017-04) - Journal article,
The wisent, also known as the European bison, was rescued from extinction approximately 80 years ago through the conservation of 12 individuals. Here, we present the draft genome sequence of a male wisent individual descended ...
Successful suction-cup tagging of a small delphinid species, Stenella attenuata : insights into whistle characteristics
(2017-04-13) - Journal article,
The extension of biology through culture
(2017-07-25) - Journal article,
Allometric growth in reef-building corals
(2017-03-29) - Journal article,
Predicting demographic rates is a critical part of forecasting the future of ecosystems under global change. Here, we test if growth rates can be predicted from morphological traits for a highly diverse group of colonial ...
Species differences in egocentric navigation : the effect of burrowing ecology on a spatial cognitive trait in mice
(2017-05) - Journal article,
Efficient navigation is a critical component of fitness for most animals. While most species use a combination of allocentric (external) and egocentric (internal) cues to navigate through their environment, subterranean ...
Low and annually variable migratory connectivity in a long distance migrant : Whinchats Saxicola rubetra may show a bet-hedging strategy
(2017-10) - Journal article,
The spatial scale of non-breeding areas used by long distance migrant animals can vary from specific, relatively small non-breeding areas for each independent breeding population (high connectivity) to a distribution over ...
