  • From Winogradsky's column to contemporary research using bacterial microcosms 

    Moshynets, O.; Boretska, M.; Spiers, Andrew J. (Nova Publishers, 2013)
    The fast pace of scientific research often means that contemporary investigators are unaware of critical developments resulting from the work of previous generations of scientists. We were superficially aware of Sergei ...
  • The function of the self-attention network 

    Cunningham, Sheila J. (Taylor & Francis, 2015-08-17)
    This commentary links Humphrey and Sui’s proposed Self-attention Network (SAN) to the memory advantage associated with self-relevant information (i.e., the self-reference effect). Articulating this link elucidates the ...
  • Functional analysis of the 5′ flanking region of the human G6PC3 gene: regulation of promoter activity by glucose, pyruvate, AMP kinase and the pentose phosphate pathway 

    Bennett, Kimberley A.; Forsyth, Laura; Burchell, Ann (Elsevier, 2011-03-21)
    G6PC3 is a widely expressed isoform of glucose-6-phosphatase, found in many foetal and adult tissues. Mutations in this gene cause developmental abnormalities and severe neutropenia due to abolition of glucose recycling ...
  • Functional atrial conduction alternans generated by rapid FOCI in homogeneous virtual human atrial tissue 

    Zhang, Henggui; Garratt, Clifford J.; Zhu, Jiujiang; Holden, Arun V. (Elsevier, 2005-05)
  • Fungal colonization in soils with different management histories: modeling growth in three-dimensional pore volumes 

    Kravchenko, Alexandra; Falconer, Ruth E.; Grinev, Dmitri; Otten, Wilfred (Ecological Society of America, 2011)
    Despite the importance of fungi in soil functioning they have received comparatively little attention and our understanding of fungal interactions and communities is lacking. This study aims to combine a physiologically ...
  • A fungal growth model fitted to carbon-limited dynamics of Rhizoctonia solani 

    Jeger, M. J.; Lamour, A.; Gilligan, C. A.; Otten, Wilfred (Wiley-Blackwell, 2008-05)
    Here, a quasi-steady-state approximation was used to simplify a mathematical model for fungal growth in carbon-limiting systems, and this was fitted to growth dynamics of the soil-borne plant pathogen and saprotroph ...
  • Fungi in century old managed soils could hold key to the development of soil water repellency 

    Young, Iain M.; Feeney, Deborah S.; O'Donnell, Anthony G.; Goulding, Keith W. T. (Elsevier, 2012-02)
    We examined the impact of fungi, using the biomarkers glomalin and ergosterol, on the influence of water repellency on 15 land management treatments, sourced from century old managed arable and grassland sites. We observed ...
  • FUNNet : a novel biologically-inspired routing algorithm based on fungi 

    Hao, Xu; Falconer, Ruth E.; Bradley, David A.; Crawford, John W. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2009-07)
    Future data communication networks show three emerging trends: increasing size of networks, increasing traffic volumes and dynamic network topologies. Efficient network management solutions are required that are scalable, ...
  • Further discussion on impulse energy approximation 

    Lucas, T. Nigel (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 1987-02)
    Recent criticisms by Rao about impulse energy approximation are answered in detail. Further ideas are put forward as to how weighted energy parameters may be used to determine the reduced models for step inputs.
  • Further evidence of association of OPRD1 & HTR1D polymorphisms with susceptibility to anorexia nervosa 

    Brown, Kirsty M.O.; Bujac, Sarah R.; Mann, Evleen T.; Campbell, David A.; Stubbins, Michael J.; Blundell, John E.; Kiezebrink, Kirsty (Elsevier, 2007-02)
    Background: A recent study reported strong evidence for the involvement of a region on human chromosome 1 and genetic susceptibility to anorexia nervosa (AN). A more detailed analysis of this region has suggested 2 genes ...
  • Future environmental regulation issues to promote energy efficiency 

    Ql-Oquili, Osama; Kouhy, Reza (American Society of Civil Engineers, 2006-08)
    It is accepted that fossil fuel is the major source of energy in use today. The technology to use this fuel is well-developed and relatively safe. However, there are two fundamental problems facing the industry that is so ...
  • The future of the profession - a survey of dental school applicants 

    Stewart, F. M. J.; Drummond, J. R.; Carson, Lloyd; Hoad-Reddick, G. (Nature Publishing Group, 2004-11)
    Purpose: To gather background information about applicants to the dental undergraduate course, and ascertain the factors involved in their decision to study dentistry. Method: Applicants attending for interview at Dundee ...
  • The future of the UK generation sector 

    Borrie, David; Özveren, Cüneyt Süheyl (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2009)
    The UK electricity industry was amongst the first in the world to make the transposition from a nationalised monolithic entity towards a deregulated commercially competitive free market model consisting of suppliers, ...
  • Future systems for remote health care 

    Brownsell, S. J.; Williams, G.; Bradley, David A.; Bragg, R.; Catlin, P.; Carlier, J. (Royal Society of Medicine Press, 1999-07)
    As the number of elderly people in society increases, the use of technology to support the care system is being examined. However, there is no agreed model of a technology-based health-care system that fully integrates the ...
