Optimizing squat technique (2007)
Journal Article
Comfort, P., & Kasim, P. (2007). Optimizing squat technique. Strength and Conditioning Journal, 29(6), 10-13. https://doi.org/10.1519/00126548-200712000-00001

There are many variations of the squat technique, including stance width, foot positioning, and squat depth. However, research indicates that the optimal squat technique is a wide stance (≥ shoulder width) with natural foot positioning, unrestricted... Read More about Optimizing squat technique.

A developmental model of basic ICT skills for pre-service trainee teachers (2007)
Conference Proceeding
M. Bass, J. (2007). A developmental model of basic ICT skills for pre-service trainee teachers. . https://doi.org/10.1109/ictd.2007.4937404

Resource limitations present several challenges to diffusion of ICT skills in developing (non-OECD) countries. Trainee teachers join colleges of teacher education with little or no prior exposure to technologies such as mobile phones or computers. Di...

Technology adoption : breaking down barriers using a virtual reality design support tool for hybrid concrete (2007)
Journal Article
Goulding, J., Kagioglou, M., Sexton, M., Zhang, X., Aouad, G., & Barrett, P. (2007). Technology adoption : breaking down barriers using a virtual reality design support tool for hybrid concrete. Construction Management and Economics, 25(12), 1239-1250. https://doi.org/10.1080/01446190701504234

The use of hybrid concrete technologies as a viable solution to traditional frame design has been inhibited by a general lack of information. The uptake of this technology has therefore been slow and parochial, as designers have tended to stay loyal...

Epistasy search in population-based gene mapping using mutual information (2007)
Presentation / Conference
Saraee, M., Nikoofar, H., & Manzour, A. (2007, December). Epistasy search in population-based gene mapping using mutual information. Presented at 2007 IEEE International Symposium on Signal Processing and Information Technology, Cairo, EGYPT

Gene mapping intends to identify the causal genetic regions of a specific phenotype mostly a complex disease. These diseases are believed to have multiple contributing loci that are potentially unknown and often have subtle patterns making them hard...

The 'Festial' is a collection of sermons de tempore and de sanctis compiled by the Austin canon, John Mirk, probably around the late 1380s. It circulated widely in manuscript, undergoing one recension and one significant revision, of which the Advent... Read More about Three sermons for 'Nova Festa', together with the 'Hamus Caritatis'.

Circular dichroism to determine binding mode and affinity of ligand-DNA interactions (2007)
Journal Article
Garbett, N., Ragazzon, P., & Chaires, J. (2007). Circular dichroism to determine binding mode and affinity of ligand-DNA interactions. Nature Protocols, 2(12), 3166-3172

Circular dichroism (CD) is a useful technique for an assessment of DNA-binding mode, being a more accessible, low-resolution complement to NMR and X-ray diffraction methods. Ligand-DNA interactions can be studied by virtue of the interpretation of in... Read More about Circular dichroism to determine binding mode and affinity of ligand-DNA interactions.

The effect of stress on the expression of the amyloid precursor protein in rat brain (2007)
Journal Article
Sayer, R., Robertson, D., J.K. Balfour, D., C. Breen, K., & A. Stewart, C. (2008). The effect of stress on the expression of the amyloid precursor protein in rat brain. Neuroscience Letters, 431(6), 197-200. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.neulet.2007.11.032

The abnormal processing of the amyloid precursor protein (APP) is a pivotal event in the development of the unique pathology that defines Alzheimer's disease (AD). Stress, and the associated increase in corticosteroids, appear to accelerate brain age... Read More about The effect of stress on the expression of the amyloid precursor protein in rat brain.

An assessment of eye-gaze potential within immersive virtual environments (2007)
Journal Article
Murray, N., Roberts, D., Sharkey, P., Steed, A., Dickerson, P., & Rae, J. (2007). An assessment of eye-gaze potential within immersive virtual environments. ACM transactions on multimedia computing communications and applications, 3(4), 1-20. https://doi.org/10.1145/1314303.1314311

In collaborative situations, eye gaze is a critical element of behaviour which supports and fulfills many activities and roles. In current computer-supported collaboration systems, eye gaze is poorly supported. Even in a state-of-the-art video confer...
