Rapid characterisation of hERG channel kinetics I: using an automated high-throughput system (2019)
Journal Article
Lei, C. L., Clerx, M., Gavaghan, D. J., Polonchuk, L., Mirams, G. R., & Wang, K. (2019). Rapid characterisation of hERG channel kinetics I: using an automated high-throughput system. Biophysical Journal, doi:10.1016/j.bpj.2019.07.029

Predicting how pharmaceuticals may affect heart rhythm is a crucial step in drug-development, and requires a deep understanding of a compound’s action on ion channels. In vitro hERG-channel current recordings are an important step in evaluating the p... Read More

Defining vitamin D status using multi-metabolite mathematical modelling: a pregnancy perspective (2019)
Journal Article
Beentjes, C., Taylor-King, J., Bayani, A., Davis, C., Dunster, J., Jabbari, S., …Tamblyn, J. (2019). Defining vitamin D status using multi-metabolite mathematical modelling: a pregnancy perspective. Journal of Steroid Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 190, 152-160. doi:10.1016/j.jsbmb.2019.03.024

Vitamin D deficiency is linked to adverse pregnancy outcomes such as pre-eclampsia (PET) but remains defined by serum measurement of 25-hydroxyvitamin D3 (25(OH)D3) alone. To identify broader changes in vitamin D metabolism during normal and PET preg... Read More

Representation of multiple cellular phenotypes within tissue-level simulations of cardiac electrophysiology (2018)
Journal Article
Bowler, L. A., Gavaghan, D. J., Mirams, G. R., & Whiteley, J. P. (2019). Representation of multiple cellular phenotypes within tissue-level simulations of cardiac electrophysiology. Bulletin of Mathematical Biology, 81(1), 7–38. doi:10.1007/s11538-018-0516-1

Distinct electrophysiological phenotypes are exhibited 1 by biological cells that have differentiated into particular cell types. The usual approach when simulating the cardiac electrophysiology of tissue that includes different cell types is to mode... Read More

Reproducible model development in the Cardiac Electrophysiology Web Lab (2018)
Journal Article
Daly, A. C., Clerx, M., Beattie, K. A., Cooper, J., Gavaghan, D. J., & Mirams, G. R. (2018). Reproducible model development in the Cardiac Electrophysiology Web Lab. Progress in Biophysics and Molecular Biology, 139, 3-14. doi:10.1016/j.pbiomolbio.2018.05.011

The modelling of the electrophysiology of cardiac cells is one of the most mature areas of systems biology. This extended concentration of research effort brings with it new challenges, foremost among which is that of choosing which of these models i... Read More

Inference of the Arabidopsis lateral root gene regulatory network suggests a bifurcation mechanism that defines primordia flanking and central zones (2015)
Journal Article
Lavenus, J., Goh, T., Guyomarc’h, S., Hill, K., Lucas, M., Voß, U., …Bennett, M. J. (2015). Inference of the Arabidopsis lateral root gene regulatory network suggests a bifurcation mechanism that defines primordia flanking and central zones. Plant Cell, 27(5), 1368-1388. doi:10.1105/tpc.114.132993

A large number of genes involved in lateral root (LR) organogenesis have been identified over the last decade using forward and reverse genetic approaches in Arabidopsis thaliana. Nevertheless, how these genes interact to form a LR regulatory network... Read More
