Journal Article
Cliffe, A., Hall, E., Houston, P., Phipps, E. T., & Salinger, A. G. (2012). Adaptivity and a posteriori error control for bifurcation problems III: incompressible fluid flow in open systems with O(2) symmetry. doi:10.1007/s10915-011-9545-8. Manuscript submitted for publication

In this article we consider the a posteriori error estimation and adaptive mesh refinement of discontinuous Galerkin finite element approximations of the bifurcation problem associated with the steady incompressible Navier-Stokes equations. Particula... Read More about Adaptivity and a posteriori error control for bifurcation problems III: incompressible fluid flow in open systems with O(2) symmetry.

Receptors, sparks and waves in a fire-diffuse-fire framework for calcium release
Journal Article
Coombes, S., Hinch, R., & Timofeeva, Y. (2004). Receptors, sparks and waves in a fire-diffuse-fire framework for calcium release

Calcium ions are an important second messenger in living cells. Indeed calcium signals in the form of waves have been the subject of much recent experimental interest. It is now well established that these waves are composed of elementary stochasti... Read More about Receptors, sparks and waves in a fire-diffuse-fire framework for calcium release.

Does the abundance of hoverfly mimics (Syrphidae) depend on the numbers of their hymenopteran models ?
Journal Article
Howarth, B., Edmunds, M., & Gilbert, F. (2004). Does the abundance of hoverfly mimics (Syrphidae) depend on the numbers of their hymenopteran models ?. Evolution,

We tested the prediction that, if hoverflies are Batesian mimics, this may extend to behavioral mimicry such that their numerical abundance at each hour of the day (the daily activity pattern) is related to the numbers of their hymenopteran models. A... Read More about Does the abundance of hoverfly mimics (Syrphidae) depend on the numbers of their hymenopteran models ?.

Exploring haemodynamics of haemodialysis using extrema points analysis model
Journal Article
Eldehni, M. T., Odudu, A., & McIntyre, C. W. Exploring haemodynamics of haemodialysis using extrema points analysis model. Theoretical Biology and Medical Modelling, 10, doi:10.1186/1742-4682-10-33

Background: Haemodialysis is a form of renal replacement therapy used to treat patients with end stage renal failure. It is becoming more appreciated that haemodialysis patients exhibit higher rates of multiple end organ damage compared to the gen...

Integrity management and the public service ethos in the UK: patchwork quilt or threadbare blanket?
Conference Proceeding
Heywood, P. M. Integrity management and the public service ethos in the UK: patchwork quilt or threadbare blanket?

This paper focuses on the nature of integrity management in contemporary UK public life. Despite traditionally high standards of integrity in the public service, it has recently been argued that the UK’s National Integrity System resembles a patchwor...

Regulation of cel genes of C. cellulolyticum: identification of GlyR2, a transcriptional regulator regulating cel5D gene expression
Journal Article
Fendri, I., Abdou, L., Trotter, V., Dedieu, L., Maamar, H., Minton, N. P., & Tardif, C. Regulation of cel genes of C. cellulolyticum: identification of GlyR2, a transcriptional regulator regulating cel5D gene expression. PLoS ONE, 8(1), doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0044708

Transcription and expression regulation of some individual cel genes (cel5A, cel5I, cel5D and cel44O) of Clostridium cellulolyticum were investigated. Unlike the cip-cel operon, these genes are transcribed as monocistronic units of transcription, exc...
