A metaproteomic approach gives functional insights into anaerobic digestion
Aims: The objective of this work was to provide functional evidence of key metabolic pathways important for anaerobic digestion processes through the identification of highly expressed proteins in a mixed anaerobic microbial ...
Academic libraries in challenging times
This article identifies three key challenges facing academic libraries in a period of recession: resourcing, technological change and proof of relevance. It proposes a series of strategies to maximise the value, actual and ...
Ciliary abnormalities in senescent human fibroblasts impair proliferative capacity
(Informa UK Limited, 2014-09-02)
Somatic cells senesce in culture after a finite number of divisions indefinitely arresting their proliferation. DNA damage and senescence increase the cellular number of centrosomes, the 2 microtubule organizing centers ...
Population genetics inference for longitudinally-sampled mutants under strong selection
(Genetics Society of America, 2014-09-10)
Longitudinal allele frequency data are becoming increasingly prevalent. Such samples permit statistical inference of the population genetics parameters that influence the fate of mutant variants. To infer these parameters ...
The Contradictions of Policy and Practice: Creativity in Higher Education
(London Review of Education (Taylor & Francis), 2012-07)
Whilst much of the rhetoric of current educational policy champions creativity and innovation, structural reforms and new management practices in higher education run counter to the known conditions under which creativity ...
Presence of persistent organic pollutants in a breeding common tern (sterna hirundo) population in ireland
(Springer Nature, 2017-04-05)
Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) are chemical compounds of environmental concern due to their toxic, persistent nature and their ability to bio-accumulate in biological tissue. Seabirds, for often being at the top of ...

Epitope discovery with phylogenetic hidden markov models
(Oxford University Press (OUP), 2010-01-20)
Existing methods for the prediction of immunologically active T-cell epitopes are based on the amino acid sequence or structure of pathogen proteins. Additional information regarding the locations of epitopes may be acquired ...
Common polygenic variation in coeliac disease and confirmation of znf335 and nifa as disease susceptibility loci
(Springer Nature, 2015-04-29)
Coeliac disease (CD) is a chronic immune-mediated disease triggered by the ingestion of gluten. It has an estimated prevalence of approximately 1% in European populations. Specific HLA-DQA1 and HLA-DQB1 alleles are established ...
