Using meta-ethnography to synthesize relevant studies: capturing the bigger picture in dementia with challenging behavior within families (2018)
Other
Feast, A., Orrell, M., Charlesworth, G., Poland, F., Featherstone, K., Melunsky, N., & Moniz-Cook, E. (2018). Using meta-ethnography to synthesize relevant studies: capturing the bigger picture in dementia with challenging behavior within families

In understanding the range and depth of people’s experiences, it is important to include the wide range of approaches which capture the richness within a given knowledge base. However, systematic reviews using quantitative data alone risk missing fin... Read More

Combining semi-automated image analysis techniques with machine learning algorithms to accelerate large scale genetic studies (2017)
Other
Atkinson, J. A., Lobet, G., Noll, M., Meyer, P. E., Griffiths, M., & Wells, D. M. (2017). Combining semi-automated image analysis techniques with machine learning algorithms to accelerate large scale genetic studies

Background: Genetic analyses of plant root system development require large datasets of extracted architectural traits. To quantify such traits from images of root systems, researchers often have to choose between automated tools (that are prone to e... Read More
