Steven; Whitaker, Hayley C.; McDermott, Ultan; Neal, David E.; Eeles, Rosalind; Cooper, Colin S.; Brewer, Daniel S. (2017-09-25) - Journal article
    A variety of models have been proposed to explain regions of recurrent somatic copy number alteration (SCNA) in human cancer. Our study employs Whole Genome DNA Sequence (WGS) data from tumor samples (n = 103) to comprehensively ...
  • Title redacted 

    Sharifi Far, Serveh (University of St Andrews, 2017-12-07) - Thesis
  • Spatio-temporal variation in click production rates of beaked whales : implications for passive acoustic density estimation 

    Warren, Victoria E.; Marques, Tiago A.; Harris, Danielle; Thomas, Len; Tyack, Peter L.; Aguilar de Soto, Natacha; Hickmott, Leigh S.; Johnson, Mark P. (2017-03) - Journal article
    Passive acoustic monitoring has become an increasingly prevalent tool for estimating density of marine mammals, such as beaked whales, which vocalize often but are difficult to survey visually. Counts of acoustic cues ...
  • Synthetic lethality between androgen receptor signalling and the PARP pathway in prostate cancer 

    Asim, Mohammad; Tarish, Firas; Zecchini, Heather I; Sanjiv, Kumar; Gelali, Eleni; Massie, Charles E; Baridi, Ajoeb; Warren, Anne Y; Zhao, Wanfeng; Ogris, Christoph; McDuffus, Leigh-Anne; Mascalchi, Patrice; Shaw, Greg; Dev, Harveer; Wadhwa, Karan; Wijnhoven, Paul; Forment, Josep V; Lyons, Scott R; Lynch, Andy G; O'Neill, Cormac; Zecchini, Vincent R; Rennie, Paul S; Baniahmad, Aria; Tavaré, Simon; Mills, Ian G; Galanty, Yaron; Crosetto, Nicola; Schultz, Niklas; Neal, David; Helleday, Thomas (2017-08-29) - Journal article
    Emerging data demonstrate homologous recombination (HR) defects in castration-resistant prostate cancers, rendering these tumours sensitive to PARP inhibition. Here we demonstrate a direct requirement for the androgen ...
  • Inference from randomized (factorial) experiments 

    Bailey, Rosemary Anne (2017) - Journal article
    This is a contribution to the discussion of the interesting paper by Ding [Statist. Sci. 32 (2017) 331–345], which contrasts approaches attributed to Neyman and Fisher. I believe that Fisher’s usual assumption was ...
