GrOup based physical Activity for oLder adults (GOAL) randomized controlled trial: study protocol
Background Physical activity has health benefits across the lifespan, yet only 13 % of Canadian older adults are sufficiently active. Results from a number of observational studies indicate that adults display positive ...
Application of alignment-free bioinformatics methods to identify an oomycete protein with structural and functional similarity to the bacterial AvrE effector protein
Diverse plant pathogens export effector proteins to reprogram host cells. One of the most challenging goals in the molecular plant-microbe field is to functionally characterize the complex repertoires of effectors secreted ...
EpiViewer: an epidemiological application for exploring time series data
Abstract Background Visualization plays an important role in epidemic time series analysis and forecasting. Viewing time series data plotted on a graph can help researchers ...
Characterization and prediction of tropical cyclone forerunner surge
Forerunner surge, a water level rise ahead of tropical cyclone landfall, often strikes coastal communities unexpectedly, stranding people and increasing loss of life. Surge forecasting systems and emergency managers almost ...
Combining expert and crowd-sourced training data to map urban form and functions for the continental US
Although continental urban areas are relatively small, they are major drivers of environmental change at local, regional and global scales. Moreover, they are especially vulnerable to these changes owing to the concentration ...
Aging, resistance training, and diabetes prevention.
With the aging of the baby-boom generation and increases in life expectancy, the American population is growing older. Aging is associated with adverse changes in glucose tolerance and increased risk of diabetes; the ...
The Betrayal Aversion Elicitation Task: An Individual Level Betrayal Aversion Measure
Research on betrayal aversion shows that individuals’ response to risk depends not only on probabilities and payoffs, but also on whether the risk includes a betrayal of trust. While previous studies focus on measuring ...
Older Ghanaian adults’ perceptions of physical activity: an exploratory, mixed methods study
Abstract Background Ghana is experiencing an epidemiological shift in public health issues toward non-communicable diseases that are underpinned by modifiable health ...
