Bi-galileon theory I: motivation and formulation (2010)
Journal Article
Padilla, A., Saffin, P. M., & Zhou, S. (2010). Bi-galileon theory I: motivation and formulation. Journal of High Energy Physics, 2010(12), doi:10.1007/JHEP12(2010)031

We introduce bi-galileon theory, the generalisation of the single galileon model introduced by Nicolis et al. The theory contains two coupled scalar fields and is described by a Lagrangian that is invariant under Galilean shifts in those fields. This... Read More

Protein flexibility directs DNA recognition by the papillomavirus E2 proteins (2010)
Journal Article
Brown, C. A., Campos-León, K., Strickland, M., Williams, C., Fairweather, V., Brady, R. L., …Gaston, K. (2011). Protein flexibility directs DNA recognition by the papillomavirus E2 proteins. Nucleic Acids Research, 39(7), 2969--2980. doi:10.1093/nar/gkq1217

Although DNA flexibility is known to play an important role in DNA–protein interactions, the importance of protein flexibility is less well understood. Here, we show that protein dynamics are important in DNA recognition using the well-characterized... Read More
