Strong peak in Tc of Sr2RuO4 under uniaxial pressure
(2017-01-13) - Journal article,
Sr2RuO4 is an unconventional superconductor that has attracted widespread study because of its high purity and the possibility that its superconducting order parameter has odd parity. We study the dependence of its ...
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 ...
Quantum critical points in ferroelectric relaxors : stuffed tungsten bronze K3Li2Ta5O15 and lead pyrochlore (Pb2Nb2O7)
(2018-08) - Journal article,
We have synthesized ceramic specimens of the tetragonal tungsten bronze K3Li2Ta5O15 (KLT) and characterized its phase transition via X-ray diffraction, dielectric permittivity, resonant ultrasonic spectroscopy, and heat ...
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 ...
Report on offset agreements : evaluating current Jisc Collections deals. Year 2 – evaluating 2016 deals
(Figshare, 2017-09-07) - Report,
This report is the second of three annual evaluations of Jisc Collections offset agreements.
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 ...
Cohesion, order and information flow in the collective motion of mixed-species shoals
(2018-12-12) - Journal article,
Despite the frequency with which mixed-species groups are observed in nature, studies of collective behaviour typically focus on single-species groups. Here, we quantify and compare the patterns of interactions between ...
