Journal Article
Kokogiannakis, G., Tietje, A., & Darkwa, J. (2011). The role of green roofs on reducing heating and cooling loads: a database across Chinese climates. Procedia Environmental Sciences, 11(B), doi:10.1016/j.proenv.2011.12.094

This paper aims to use detailed modelling techniques and develop a database for assessing in a quick and easy way the energy performance of green roof designs across a range of Chinese climates. The focus is on heating and cooling loads by calculatin... Read More

Application of airborne LiDAR data and airborne multispectral imagery to structural mapping of the upper section of the Troodos ophiolite, Cyprus (2011)
Journal Article
Grebby, S., Cunningham, D., Naden, J., & Tansey, K. (2012). Application of airborne LiDAR data and airborne multispectral imagery to structural mapping of the upper section of the Troodos ophiolite, Cyprus. International Journal of Earth Sciences, 101(6), doi:10.1007/s00531-011-0742-3

Structural maps are traditionally produced by mapping features such as faults, folds, fabrics, fractures and joints in the field. However, large map areas and the spatially limited ground perspective of the field geologist can potentially increase th... Read More

The influence of cross-language similarity on within- and between-language Stroop effects in trilinguals (2011)
Journal Article
van Heuven, W. J., Conklin, K., Coderre, E. L., Guo, T., & Dijkstra, T. (2011). The influence of cross-language similarity on within- and between-language Stroop effects in trilinguals. Frontiers in Psychology, 2(374), doi:10.3389/fpsyg.2011.00374

This study investigated effects of cross-language similarity on within- and between-language Stroop interference and facilitation in three groups of trilinguals. Trilinguals were either proficient in three languages that use the same-script (alphabet... Read More

Adapting the cosmological tradition in Isaiah 40-45 (2011)
Journal Article
Crouch, C. (in press). Adapting the cosmological tradition in Isaiah 40-45. Scandinavian Journal of the Old Testament, 25(2), doi:10.1080/09018328.2011.608544

The characterisation of Yahweh as king in Isaiah 40-45 and the use of creation language to reiterate Yahweh's power are well known. This article examines the way in which these themes reflect this text's re-working of pre-exilic theology in order to... Read More

The isolation of spatial patterning modes in a mathematical model of juxtacrine cell signalling (2011)
Journal Article
O'Dea, R. D., & King, J. R. (2013). The isolation of spatial patterning modes in a mathematical model of juxtacrine cell signalling. Mathematical Medicine and Biology, 30(2), doi:10.1093/imammb/dqr028

Juxtacrine signalling mechanisms are known to be crucial in tissue and organ development, leading to spatial patterns in gene expression. We investigate the patterning behaviour of a discrete model of juxtacrine cell signalling due to Owen \& Sherrat... Read More

Comparing non-ipsative measures of party support (2011)
Conference Proceeding
van der Eijk, C., & Marsh, M. (2011). Comparing non-ipsative measures of party support

Non-ipsative measures of party preference (preference ratings for each of the parties of a political system) have become common in election studies. They exist in different forms, such as thermometer ratings or feeling scores, likes and dislikes scor... Read More

Predicting in vivo cardiovascular properties of β-blockers from cellular assays: a quantative comparison of cellular and cardiovascular pharmacological responses (2011)
Journal Article
Baker, J. G., Kemp, P., March, J., Fretwell, L., Hill, S. J., & Gardiner, S. M. (2011). Predicting in vivo cardiovascular properties of β-blockers from cellular assays: a quantative comparison of cellular and cardiovascular pharmacological responses. FASEB Journal, 25(12), doi:10.1096/fj.11-192435

β-Adrenoceptor antagonists differ in their degree of partial agonism. In vitro assays have provided information on ligand affinity, selectivity, and intrinsic efficacy. However, the extent to which these properties are manifest in vivo is less clear.... Read More

Role of the rumen in copper and thiomolybdate absorption (2011)
Journal Article
Gould, L., & Kendall, N. R. (2011). Role of the rumen in copper and thiomolybdate absorption. Nutrition Research Reviews, 24(2), doi:10.1017/S0954422411000059

The rumen is the site of significant interactions between Cu, S and Mo. It also shows reactions between Cu, S and Fe. The interaction between Mo and S results in the formation of thiomolybdates, which in the absence of adequate quantities of rumen Cu... Read More

Investigation of the origin and spread of a mammalian transposable element based on current sequence diversity (2011)
Journal Article
Hellen, E. H., & Brookfield, J. F. (2011). Investigation of the origin and spread of a mammalian transposable element based on current sequence diversity. Journal of Molecular Evolution, 73(5-6), doi:10.1007/s00239-011-9475-y

Almost half the human genome consists of mobile DNA elements, and their analysis is a vital part of understanding the human genome as a whole. Many of these elements are ancient and have persisted in the genome for tens or hundreds of millions of yea... Read More

Designing a multi-agent approach system for distributed course timetabling (2011)
Conference Proceeding
Obit, J. H., Landa-Silva, D., Ouelhadj, D., Khan Vun, T., & Alfred, R. (2011). Designing a multi-agent approach system for distributed course timetabling

This paper proposes tackling the difficult course timetabling problem using a multi-agent approach. The proposed design seeks to deal with the problem using a distributed solution environment in which a mediator agent coordinates various timetabling... Read More

A geographically diverse collection of schizosaccharomyces pombe isolates shows limited phenotypic variation but extensive karyotypic diversity (2011)
Journal Article
Brown, W. R., Litti, G., Rosa, C., James, S., Roberts, I., Robert, V., …Warringer, J. (2011). A geographically diverse collection of schizosaccharomyces pombe isolates shows limited phenotypic variation but extensive karyotypic diversity. G3, 1(7), doi:10.1534/g3.111.001123

The fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe has been widely used to study eukaryotic cell biology, but almost all of this work has used derivatives of a single strain. We have studied 81 independent natural isolates and 3 designated laboratory stra... Read More

Diabetes health-beliefs, self-care practices and glycaemic control among Malaysian young adults with diabetes (2011)
