      Walsh, Kieran; Callan, Aoife (Springer, 2010-10)
      Abstract As the Irish population ages, the potential role of information and communication technologies (ICT) to assist with community care has gained prominence, as it has in many Western nations. However, little is known ...
    • Performance Management of Agile Software Development Teams 

      Lohan, Garry; Lang, Michael; Conboy, Kieran (2010)
      Around the same time as the emergence of agile methods as a formalized concept, the management accounting literature introduced the concept of Beyond Budgeting as a performance management model for a changing business ...
    • Performing Object Consolidation on the Semantic Web Data Graph 

      Hogan, Aidan; Harth, Andreas; Decker, Stefan (2007)
      An important aspect of Semantic Web technologies is the issue of identity and uniquely identifying resources, which is essential for integrating data across sources. Currently, there is poor agreement on the use of ...
    • Periodic acid-Schiff's reagent assay for carbohydrates in a microtiter plate format 

      Kilcoyle, Michelle; Gerlach, Jared Q.; Farrell, Mark P.; Joshi, Lokesh (2011)
      Microtiter plate colorimetric assays are widely used for analysis of carbohydrates and glycoconjugates. However, mucins are often not easily detected, as they have low neutral sugar content. We have adapted and optimised ...
    • Perk-dependent repression of miR-106b-25 cluster is required for ER stress-induced apoptosis 

      Gupta, Sanjeev; Read, D.E.; Deepti, A.; Cawley, K.; Gupta, A.; Oommen, D.; Samal, Afshin (2012)
      Activation of the unfolded protein response sensor PKR-like endoplasmic reticulum kinase (Perk) attenuates endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress levels. Conversantly, if the damage is too severe and ER function cannot be ...
    • Permeable and Non-reflecting Boundary Conditions in SPH 

      Lastiwka, Martin; Basa, Mihai; Quinlan, Nathan J. (Wiley, 2009-11)
      Inflow and outflow boundary conditions are essential for the application of computational fluid dynamics to many engineering scenarios. In this paper we present a new boundary condition implementation that enables the ...
    • Permissive roles of cytokines Interleukin-7 and Flt3-ligand in mouse B cell lineage commitment 

      von Muenchow, Lilly; Alberti-Servera, Llucia; Klein, Fabian; Capoferri, Giuseppina; Finke, Daniela; Ceredig, Rhodri; Rolink, Antonius; Tsapogas, Panagiotis (National Academy of Sciences, 2016-11-04)
      Hematopoietic cells are continuously generated throughout life from hematopoietic stem cells, thus making hematopoiesis a favorable system to study developmental cell lineage commitment. The main factors incorporating ...
    • The persistent spatial patchiness of limpet grazing 

      Johnson, Mark P. (Elsevier, 2008)
      The characteristic variability of grazing has potential consequences for intertidal productivity and community structure, particularly as many of the underlying functional relationships are thought to be non linear. As a ...
