Genome-wide methylation and gene expression changes in newborn rats following maternal protein restriction and reversal by folic acid (2013)
Journal Article
Altobelli, G., Bogdarina, I., Stupka, E., Clark, A. J., & Langley-Evans, S. C. (2013). Genome-wide methylation and gene expression changes in newborn rats following maternal protein restriction and reversal by folic acid. PLoS ONE, 8, doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0082989

A large body of evidence from human and animal studies demonstrates that the maternal diet during pregnancy can programme physiological and metabolic functions in the developing fetus, effectively determining susceptibility to later disease. The mech... Read More

Probing the metallicity and ionization state of the circumgalactic medium at z~6 and beyond with OI absorption (2013)
Journal Article
Keating, L. C., Haehnelt, M. G., Becker, G. D., & Bolton, J. S. (2013). Probing the metallicity and ionization state of the circumgalactic medium at z~6 and beyond with OI absorption. Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, 438(2), doi:10.1093/mnras/stt2324. ISSN 0035-8711

Low-ionization metal absorption due to O I has been identified as an important probe of the physical state of the intergalactic/circumgalactic medium at the tail end of reionization. We use here high-resolution hydrodynamic simulations to interpret t... Read More

Yhwh's battle against chaos in Ezekiel: the transformation of Judahite mythology for a new situation (2013)
Journal Article
Strine, C., & Crouch, C. (2013). Yhwh's battle against chaos in Ezekiel: the transformation of Judahite mythology for a new situation. Journal of Biblical Literature, 132(4), doi:10.2307/42912472. ISSN 0021-9231

In addressing the theological crisis of the exile, Ezekiel relies on the mythology of the divine king who goes out to battle against the forces of chaos, commonly referred to as the Chaoskampf. This article explores how Ezekiel employs this imagery t... Read More

Financial liberalization and the relationship-specificity of exports (2013)
Journal Article
Defever, F., & Suedekum, J. (2014). Financial liberalization and the relationship-specificity of exports. Economics Letters, 122(3), doi:10.1016/j.econlet.2013.12.034. ISSN 0165-1765

We investigate the causal impact of equity market liberalizations on sectoral export performance across 91 countries (1980–1997). The increased availability of external finance has boosted trade of industries that intensively use relationship-specifi... Read More

Composition and properties of the surface of oil bodies recovered from Echium Plantagineum (2013)
Journal Article
Payne, G., Lad, M., Foster, T., Khosla, A., & Gray, D. (2014). Composition and properties of the surface of oil bodies recovered from Echium Plantagineum. Colloids and Surfaces B: Biointerfaces, 116, 88-92. doi:10.1016/j.colsurfb.2013.11.043

Neutral-lipids within oilseeds are most commonly stored in oil bodies, small spherical organelles with oleosin proteins inserted through a phospholipid monolayer. Oil bodies extracted from Echium plantagineum are highly enriched in polyunsaturated fa... Read More

A depth-averaged model for non-isothermal thin-film rimming flow (2013)
Journal Article
Kay, E., Hibberd, S., & Power, H. (2014). A depth-averaged model for non-isothermal thin-film rimming flow. International Journal of Heat and Mass Transfer, 70, doi:10.1016/j.ijheatmasstransfer.2013.11.040. ISSN 0017-9310

A model for non-isothermal shear-driven thin-film flow on the inside surface of a stationary circular cylinder is presented. Motivated by an application to film flow in an aero-engine bearing chamber the model extends lubrication theory analysis of t... Read More

Support for the integration of green roof constructions within Chinese building energy performance policies (2013)
Journal Article
Kokogiannakis, G., & Darkwa, J. (2014). Support for the integration of green roof constructions within Chinese building energy performance policies. Energy, 65, doi:10.1016/j.energy.2013.11.076. ISSN 0360-5442

Green roofs could act as a thermal buffer in buildings and offer potential energy savings. However, the energy benefits from green roofs are not usually properly recognised by traditional building energy regulations. Building energy regulations are t... Read More

Stochastic service network design with rerouting (2013)
Journal Article
Bai, R., Wallace, S. W., Li, J., & Chong, A. Y. (2014). Stochastic service network design with rerouting. Transportation Research Part B: Methodological, 60, doi:10.1016/j.trb.2013.11.001. ISSN 0191-2615

Service network design under uncertainty is fundamentally crucial for all freight transportation companies. The main challenge is to strike a balance between two conflicting objectives: low network setup costs and low expected operational costs. Toge... Read More

Strain-mediated coupling in a quantum dot–mechanical oscillator hybrid system (2013)
Journal Article
Yeo, I., de Assis, P., Gloppe, A., Dupont-Ferrier, E., Verlot, P., Malik, N. S., …Richard, M. (2014). Strain-mediated coupling in a quantum dot–mechanical oscillator hybrid system. Nature Nanotechnology, 9(2), 106-110. doi:10.1038/nnano.2013.274

Recent progress in nanotechnology has allowed the fabrication of new hybrid systems in which a single two-level system is coupled to a mechanical nanoresonator1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9. In such systems the quantum nature of a macroscopic degree of freedom ca... Read More
