Cross platform standardisation of an experimental pipeline for use in the identification of dysregulated human circulating MiRNAs
(Public Library of Science, 2015-09-10)
Micro RNAs (miRNAs) are a class of highly conserved small non-coding RNAs that play an important part in the post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression. A substantial number of miRNAs have been proposed as biomarkers ...
Low-temperature anaerobic digestion is associated with differential methanogenic protein expression
(Oxford University Press, 2015-04-09)
Anaerobic digestion (AD) is an attractive wastewater treatment technology, leading to the generation of recoverable biofuel (methane). Most industrial AD applications, carry excessive heating costs, however, as AD reactors ...
A rapid culture independent methodology to quantitatively detect and identify common human bacterial pathogens associated with contaminated high purity water
(BioMed Central, 2015-02-18)
Water and High Purity Water (HPW) distribution systems can be contaminated with human pathogenic microorganisms. This biocontamination may pose a risk to human health as HPW is commonly used in the industrial, pharmaceutical ...
Comparison of established diagnostic methodologies and a novel bacterial smpB real-time PCR assay for the specific detection of haemophilus influenzae associated with respiratory tract infections
(American Society for Microbiology, 2015-06-23)
Haemophilus influenzae is a significant causative agent of respiratory tract infections (RTI) worldwide. The development of a rapid H. influenzae diagnostic assay that would allow for the implementation of infection control ...
Comparative genome analysis identifies novel nucleic acid diagnostic targets for use in the specific detection of Haemophilus influenzae
Haemophilus influenzae is recognised as an important human pathogen associated with invasive infections, including bloodstream infection and meningitis. Currently used molecular-based diagnostic assays lack specificity in ...
