Population dynamics and distribution of northern Norwegian killer whales in relation to wintering herring
(University of St Andrews, 2014-06-25) - Thesis,
The northern Norwegian killer whale (Orcinus orca) is an important predator but little is known about its population dynamics, particular in response to changes in its main prey, the highly dynamic Norwegian spring spawning ...
Distance measurements using pulsed EPR : noncovalently bound nitroxide and trityl spin labels
(University of St Andrews, 2013-06-26) - Thesis,
The function of biomacromolecules is controlled by their structure and conformational flexibility. Investigating the structure of biologically important macromolecules can, therefore, yield information that could explain ...
Italian queens in the ninth and tenth centuries
(University of St Andrews, 2014-06-26) - Thesis,
This thesis investigates the role of queens in ninth and tenth century Italy. During the Carolingian period the Italian kingdom saw significant involvement of royal women in political affairs. This trend continued after ...
Mechanical properties of fish myotomal muscle

Abundance and distribution of delphinids in the Red Sea (Egypt)
(University of St Andrews, 2015-06-24) - Thesis,
Knowledge about cetaceans in the Red Sea is limited with only a handful of sporadic or spatially-limited studies carried out to date. Funded by the Italian Cooperation through a Debt-for-Nature Swap programme and carried ...
Abbatial elections : the case of the Loire Valley in the eleventh century
(University of St Andrews, 2015-06-25) - Thesis,

The synthesis of 5-substituted hydantoins
(University of St Andrews, 2008-06-25) - Thesis,
The Bucherer-Bergs reaction is a classical multi-component reaction that yields hydantoins, which can be hydrolysed to afford α-amino acids. Hydantoins have many uses in modern organic synthesis, and this moiety has been ...
Structural and functional characterisation of Mcb1 and the MCMᴹᶜᵇ¹ complex in Schizosaccharomyces pombe
(University of St Andrews, 2014-06) - Thesis,
The MCM helicase plays an important role in eukaryotic DNA replication, unwinding double stranded DNA ahead of the replication fork. MCM is a hetero-hexamer consisting of the six related proteins, Mcm2-Mcm7. The distantly ...
Structural studies of CRISPR-associated proteins
(University of St Andrews, 2013-11-29) - Thesis,
Clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats (CRISPRs) act to prevent viral infection and horizontal gene transfer in prokaryotes. The genomic CRISPR array contains short sequences (“spacers”) that are derived ...
