The role of lex2 in lipopolysaccharide biosynthesis in Haemophilus influenzae strains RM7004 and RM153 (2003)
Journal Article
Griffin, R., Cox, A. D., Makepeace, K., Richards, J. C., Moxon, E. R., & Hood, D. W. (in press). The role of lex2 in lipopolysaccharide biosynthesis in Haemophilus influenzae strains RM7004 and RM153. Microbiology, 149(11), doi:10.1099/mic.0.26387-0. ISSN 1465-2080

The locus lex2, comprising lex2A and lex2B, contributes to the phase-variable expression of lipopolysaccharide (LPS) of Haemophilus influenzae and was found to be present in 74 % of strains investigated. lex2A contains 59-GCAA repeats which vary in n... Read More

Visual mechanisms of motion analysis and motion perception (2003)
Journal Article
Derrington, A., Allen, H. A., & Delicato, L. (2003). Visual mechanisms of motion analysis and motion perception. Annual Review of Psychology, 55, doi:10.1146/annurev.psych.55.090902.141903. ISSN 0066-4308

Psychophysical experiments on feature tracking suggest that most of our sensitivity to chromatic motion and to second-order motion depends on feature tracking. There is no reason to suppose that the visual system contains motion sensors dedicated to... Read More

'Dis ain't gimme, Florida': Zora Neale Hurston's Their Eyes Were Watching God (2003)
Journal Article
Newman, J. (2003). 'Dis ain't gimme, Florida': Zora Neale Hurston's Their Eyes Were Watching God. Modern Language Review, 98(4), ISSN 0026-7937

Who owns Zora Neale Hurston? That was the question asked in 1990 by Michele Wallace, in an analysis of the ways in which Hurston has been appropriated by later scholars. Wallace's pungent comparison of later critics to so many 'groupies descending on... Read More

Consensus conferences evolved as a response to the public's increasing dissatisfaction with technocratic decision-making processes that are judged to have repeatedly failed to serve its interests. The staging of the first Australian consensus confere... Read More

Fundamental Modes of Operation for Mass Customization (2003)
Journal Article
MacCarthy, B. L., Brabazon, P. G., & Bramham, J. (2003). Fundamental Modes of Operation for Mass Customization. International Journal of Production Economics, 85(3), ISSN 0925-5273

The concept of Mass Customization (MC) - producing customised goods for a mass market - has received considerable attention in the research literature in recent years. However the literature is limited in providing an understanding of the content of... Read More

How do physicists use an e-print archive? Implications for institutional e-print services (2003)
Journal Article
Pinfield, S. (2003). How do physicists use an e-print archive? Implications for institutional e-print services. 00 Journal not listed,

It has been suggested that institutional e-print services will become an important way of achieving the wide availability of e-prints across a broad range of subject disciplines, but as yet there are few exemplars of this sort of service. This paper... Read More
