    • Abundance and Size Distribution of Particulate Matter Fractions Near a Caribbean Bank Barrier Reef 

      Simmons, George M. Jr. (Inter-Research, 1979)
      Recent research indicates that corals have the ability to occupy several trophic levels and that particulate matter (PM) appears to play a major role in meeting their daily energy requirements. A study was undertaken to ...
    • Accurate human microsatellite genotypes from high-throughput resequencing data using informed error profiles 

      Highnam, Gareth; Franck, Christopher T.; Martin, Andy; Stephens, Calvin; Puthige, Ashwin; Mittelman, David (Oxford University Press, 2013-01)
      Repetitive sequences are biologically and clinically important because they can influence traits and disease, but repeats are challenging to analyse using short-read sequencing technology. We present a tool for genotyping ...

    • Adapting to Symptoms of Global Warming Rather Than Addressing the Cause 

      Cairns, John Jr. (Virginia Tech, 2006)
