  • Gene therapy: the potential applicability of gene transfer technology to the human germline 

    Smith, Kevin R. (Ivyspring International Publisher, 2004-06)
    The theoretical possibility of applying gene transfer methodologies to the human germline is explored. Transgenic methods for genetically manipulating embryos may in principle be applied to humans. In particular, microinjection ...
  • Gene therapy: theoretical and bioethical concepts 

    Smith, Kevin R. (Elsevier Science B.V., Amsterdam, 2003-07)

  • Gene transfer in higher animals: theoretical considerations and key concepts 

    Smith, Kevin R. (Elsevier, 2002-10)
    Gene transfer technology provides the ability to genetically manipulate the cells of higher animals. Gene transfer permits both germline and somatic alterations. Such genetic manipulation is the basis for animal transgenesis ...
  • A general formulation of the reversible stress tensor for a nonlocal fluid 

    Zhu, Jiujiang; Crawford, John W.; Palfreyman, John W. (Elsevier, 2013-09)
    The nonlocal stress tensor is an indispensable constitutive equation required to close the thermodynamic system of nonlocal fluid dynamics. A nonlocal functional variational principle is employed to derive a general ...
  • A general random walk model for the leptokurtic distribution of organism movement: Theory and application 

    Zhang, Xiaoxian; Johnson, Scott N.; Crawford, John W.; Gregory, Peter J.; Young, Iain M. (Elsevier Science B.V., Amsterdam, 2007-01)
    The movement of organisms is usually leptokurtic in which some individuals move long distances while the majority remains at or near the area they are released. There has been extensive research into the origin of such ...
  • A generalisation of an expansion for the Riemann zeta function involving incomplete gamma functions 

    Paris, Richard B. (Hikari, 2009)
    We derive an expansion for the Riemann zeta function ζ(s) involving incomplete gamma functions with their second argument proportional to n2p, where n is the summation index and p is a positive integer. The possibility is ...
  • Generalised capacity curves for stability and plasticity: application and limitations 

    Doerich, Cornelia; Rotter, J. Michael (Elsevier, 2011-09)
    In recent decades, the resistance of a structure has been thought of as well defined by the outcome of a geometrically and materially nonlinear analysis with explicitly modelled imperfections (GMNIA). But when this is the ...
  • A generalised Kummer-type transformation for the pFp(x) hypergeometric function 

    Miller, A. R.; Paris, Richard B. (University of Toronto Press, 2012)
    In a recent paper, Miller derived a Kummer-type transformation for the generalised hypergeometric function pFp(x) when pairs of parameters differ by unity, by means of a reduction formula for a certain Kampé de Fériet ...
  • Generalization of two theorems due to Ramanujan 

    Kim, Yong S.; Rathie, Arjun K.; Paris, Richard B. (Taylor & Francis, 2013)
    The aim in this paper is to provide generalizations of two interesting entries in Ramanujan's notebooks that relate sums involving the derivatives of a function (t) evaluated at 0 and 1. The generalizations obtained are ...
  • Generalizations of two infinite product formulas 

    Chen, Chao-Ping; Paris, Richard B. (Taylor & Francis, 2014)
    Two interesting infinite product formulas were presented by Choi, Lee and Srivastava [A generalization of Wilf's formula. Kodai Math J. 2003;26:44–48], who generalized an infinite product formula posed by Wilf as a problem ...
  • Genetic, ophthalmic, morphometric and histopathological analysis of the Retinopathy Globe Enlarged (rge) chicken 

    Inglehearn, Chris F.; Morrice, David R.; Lester, Douglas H.; Robertson, Graeme W.; Mohamed, Moin D.; Simmons, Ian; Downey, Louise M.; Thaung, Caroline; Bridges, Leslie R.; Paton, Ian R.; Smith, Jacqueline; Petersen-Jones, Simon; Hocking, Paul M.; Burt, David W. (Emory University, 2003-07-01)
    Purpose: To identify the locus responsible for rge (retinopathy globe enlarged) in chickens and further characterise the rge phenotype. Methods: A colony of chickens carrying the rge mutation was rederived from a single ...
  • Genomic and genetic analyses of diversity and plant interactions of Pseudomonas fluorescens 

    Silby, Mark W.; Cerdeño-Tárraga, Ana M.; Vernikos, Georgios S.; Giddens, Stephen R.; Jackson, Robert W.; Preston, Gail M.; Zhang, Xue-Xian; Moon, Christina D.; Gehrig, Stefanie M.; Godfrey, Scott A. C.; Knight, Christopher G.; Malone, Jacob G.; Robinson, Zena; Spiers, Andrew J.; Harris, Simon; Challis, Gregory L.; Yaxley, Alice M; Harris, David; Seeger, Kathy; Murphy, Lee; Rutter, Simon; Squares, Rob; Quail, Michael A.; Saunders, Elizabeth; Mavromatis, Konstantinos; Brettin, Thomas S.; Bentley, Stephen D.; Hothersall, Joanne; Stephens, Elton; Thomas, Christopher M.; Parkhill, Julian; Levy, Stuart B.; Rainey, Paul B.; Thomson, Nicholas R. (BioMed Central, 2009-05)
    Background: Pseudomonas fluorescens are common soil bacteria that can improve plant health through nutrient cycling, pathogen antagonism and induction of plant defenses. The genome sequences of strains SBW25 and Pf0-1 were ...
  • Gestures and multimodal input 

    Keates, Simeon; Robinson, Peter (Taylor & Francis, 1999)
    For users with motion impairments, the standard keyboard and mouse arrangement for computer access often presents problems. Other approaches have to be adopted to overcome this. In this paper, we will describe the development ...
  • Getting Wrinkly Spreaders to demonstrate evolution in schools 

    Spiers, Andrew J. (Elsevier, 2014-06)
    Understanding evolution is crucial to modern biology,but most teachers would assume that practical demonstrations of evolution in school laboratories are unfeasible. However, perhaps they have not heard of ‘evolution in a ...
  • The ghost of Patrick Geddes: civics as applied sociology 

    Law, Alex (University of Surrey, 2005)
    In 1904 and 1905 Patrick Geddes (1905, 1906) read his famed, but today little-read, two-part paper, 'Civics: as Applied Sociology', to the first meetings of the British Sociological Society. Geddes is often thought of as ...
  • Gilles Deleuze: psychiatry, subjectivity, and the passive synthesis of time 

    Roberts, Marc (Blackwell Publishing, 2006-10)
