  • Expression Profiling of circulating micro-RNAs in Prostate Cancer 

    Kelly, Brian Daniel (2013-08-06)
    Mi(cro)RNAs are small non-coding RNAs whose differential expression in tissue has been implicated in the development and progression of many malignancies, including prostate cancer. The discovery of miRNAs in the blood of ...
  • Expression, purification and characterization of carbohydrate-binding proteins 

    Murphy, Valerie (2014-05-29)
    Glycans play important roles in many biological interactions. They are involved in cell-cell interactions, function as a point of entry for viral infections and facilitate the adhesion of microbes in the body. Glycans of ...
  • Extended visual simultaneity thresholds in patients with schizophrenia 

    Elliott, Mark (Oxford University Press, 2009-07)
    Clinical observations suggest that the experience of time phenomenology is disturbed in schizophrenia, possibly originating disorders in dynamic cognitive functions such as language or motor planning. We examined the ...
  • Extending Agile Systems Development: An Application of the Beyond Budgeting Model 

    Lohan, Garry (2012-09-17)
    The field of information systems development (ISD) is continuously evolving, with new development practices and methodologies regularly introduced to the field. It is widely recognised that one of the most recent family ...
  • Extending Community Ontology Using Automatically Generated Suggestions 

    Novacek, Vit; Dabrowski, Maciej; Kruk, Sebastian Ryszard; Handschuh, Siegfried (AAAI Press, 2007)
    In this paper we propose an ontology (formal knowledge base) creation methodology based on integrating external ontologies into the one developed by a community of the do- main experts. We present the MarcOntX agent, a ...
  • Extending faceted navigation for RDF data 

    Oren, Eyal; Delbru, Renaud; Decker, Stefan (2006)
    Data on the Semantic Web is semi-structured and does not follow one fixed schema. Faceted browsing is a natural technique for navigating such data, partitioning the information space into orthogonal conceptual dimensions. ...
  • Extension of the finite volume particle method to viscous flow 

    Nestor, Ruairi M.; Basa, Mihai; Lastiwka, Martin; Quinlan, Nathan J. (Elsevier, 2009-03-20)
    The finite volume particle method (FVPM) is a mesh-free method for fluid dynamics which allows simple and accurate implementation of boundary conditions and retains the conservation and consistency properties of classical ...
  • Extensions and Applications of Survival Trees in Medical Data 

    Alvarez-Iglesias, Alberto (2012-09-17)
    Survival trees are a non-parametric modeling strategy that can be included in the area of statistical modeling. These type of models can be used as an alternative to Cox proportional hazards models for the analysis of ...
