Pharmacogenetics, pharmacogenomics and airway disease (2002)
Journal Article
Hall, I. P. (2002). Pharmacogenetics, pharmacogenomics and airway disease. Respiratory Research, 3(1),

The availability of a draft sequence for the human genome will revolutionise research into airway disease. This review deals with two of the most important areas impinging on the treatment of patients: pharmacogenetics and pharmacogenomics. Considera... Read More

Journal Article
Middleton, H., Adeniran, R., Brewin, C. R., Brady, C., Duggan, C., Hopkins, N., …Walton, M. (2002). Using Needs Assessment to Understand Continuing Disability in Patients with Enduring Mental Illness. Implications for Considerations of Service Development. Journal of Mental Health, 11,

Particular strengths of the MRC Needs for Care Assessment Schedule have been used to investigate the treatment status of patients with persistent psychiatric disability in ways that other needs assessment tools are unable to. One hundred and seventy-... Read More

An indirect genetic algorithm for set covering problems (2002)
Journal Article
Aickelin, U. (2002). An indirect genetic algorithm for set covering problems. Journal of the Operational Research Society, 53(10), 1118-1126 . doi:10.1057/palgrave.jors.2601317

This paper presents a new type of genetic algorithm for the set covering problem. It differs from previous evolutionary approaches first because it is an indirect algorithm, i.e. the actual solutions are found by an external decoder function. The gen... Read More

'Enhanced Direct and Indirect Genetic Algorithm Approaches for a Mall Layout and Tenant Selection Problem' (2002)
Journal Article
Aickelin, U., & Dowsland, K. (2002). 'Enhanced Direct and Indirect Genetic Algorithm Approaches for a Mall Layout and Tenant Selection Problem'. Journal of Heuristics, 8(5), doi:10.1023/A:1016536623961

During our earlier research, it was recognised that in order to be successful with an indirect genetic algorithm approach using a decoder, the decoder has to strike a balance between being an optimiser in its own right and finding feasible solutions.... Read More

Pathologizing populations and colonizing minds: internatioinal psychosocial programmes in Kosovo (2002)
Journal Article
Pupavac, V. (2002). Pathologizing populations and colonizing minds: internatioinal psychosocial programmes in Kosovo. Alternatives, 27,

Through a case study of international responses in Kosovo, this article critically analyses how the international therapeutic model constructs war-affected populations as traumatised and subject to psychosocial dysfunctionalism. The international the... Read More

Being more certain about random assignment in social policy evaluations (2002)
Journal Article
Stafford, B. (2002). Being more certain about random assignment in social policy evaluations. Social Policy and Society, 1(4),

Social experiments have been widely utilised in evaluations of social programmes in the US to identify ‘what works’, whilst in the UK their use is more controversial. This paper explores the paradigmatic, technical and practical issues evaluators co... Read More

Prevalence and abundance of Cryptosporidium parvum and Giardia spp. in wild rural rodents from the Mazury Lake District region of Poland (2002)
Journal Article
Bajer, A., Bednarska, M., Pawelczyk, A., Behnke, J. M., Gilbert, F. S., & Sinski, E. (2002). Prevalence and abundance of Cryptosporidium parvum and Giardia spp. in wild rural rodents from the Mazury Lake District region of Poland. Parasitology, 125(1), doi:10.1017/S0031182002001865

Prevalence and abundance of Cryptosporodium parvum and Giardia spp. were studied in 3 species of rodents from forests and abandoned agricultural fields in N.E. Poland (Clethrionomys glareolus n=459; Microtus arvalis n=274; Apodemus flavicollis n=209)... Read More

The monolingualism of identity or aporias from the end of the world: (indicial notes on Fogo cruzado) (2002)
Journal Article
Vidal Bouzon, Á. J. (2002). The monolingualism of identity or aporias from the end of the world: (indicial notes on Fogo cruzado). Journal of Spanish Cultural Studies, 3(2), doi:10.1080/1463620022000013983

In 1989 the collection of drawings and short-stories in Galizan-Portuguese Fogo cruzado was published with an untitled and introductory non-literary text prepared by its authors. The process of its creation, publishing and reception was an extreme ex... Read More
