Journal Article
Lim, P., Huxley, J., Green, M. J., Othman, A., Potterton, S., Brignell, C., & Kaler, J. (2015). Area of hock hair loss in dairy cows : risk factors and correlation to a categorical scale. Veterinary Journal, 203(2), doi:10.1016/j.tvjl.2014.11.005. ISSN 1090-0233

Data from 3691 dairy cows from 76 farms were used to investigate the risk factors associated with area of hair loss over the lateral aspect of the hock, and the correlation between the area of hair loss as calculated using a hock map and hock lesion... Read More

Bayesian alignment of continuous molecular shapes using random fields (2008)
Journal Article
Czogiel, I., Dryden, I. L., & Brignell, C. J. Bayesian alignment of continuous molecular shapes using random fields. Manuscript submitted for publication

Statistical methodology is proposed for comparing molecular shapes. In order to account for the continuous nature of molecules, classical shape analysis methods are combined with techniques used for predicting random fields in spatial statistics. Ap... Read More
