• Identification of miRNAs associated with the follicular-luteal transition in the ruminant ovary 

    Clinton, Michael (University of Edinburgh. Roslin Institute, 2013-03-26)
    Little is known about the involvement of microRNAs (miRNAs) in the follicular-luteal transition. The aim of this study was to identify genome-wide changes in miRNAs associated with follicular differentiation in sheep. miRNA ...
  • RNA composition metrics 

    Simmonds, Peter
    Mutating RNA virus genomes to alter codon pair (CP) frequencies and reduce translation efficiency has been advocated as a method to generate safe, attenuated virus vaccines. However, selection for disfavoured CPs leads to ...
  • Somatic Cell Nuclear Transfer (Cloning) Efficiency 

    Wilmut, Ian; Paterson, LA
    Cloning by nuclear transfer from adult somatic cells is a remarkable demonstration of developmental plasticity. When a nucleus is placed in oocyte cytoplasm, the changes in chromatin structure that govern differentiation ...
  • Spreadsheet for Sample Size Calculation 

    Brown, Helen
    Spreadsheet to estimate sample size. Alternatively power or the difference to detect (delta) may be obtained for a given sample size. Covers situations with different variability for groups and different group sizes. ...
