The Outer Membrane Protein Complex (OMPC) of the bacterium Neisseria meningitidis group B has been used successfully as a protein carrier in a Haemophilus influenza type b (Hib) polysaccharide conjugate vaccine and a Streptococcus pneumoniae (Pn) polysaccharide conjugate vaccine to elicit antipolysaccharide immune responses in young infants. The OMPC(More)
This paper investigates user preferences for mid-air gestures to interact with large public information displays. We designed and implemented a public display application that allows people to navigate between Twitter feeds and to find details about particular tweets. The application supports selection and navigation through (1) point-and-dwell and (2) push(More)
With the availability of displays in public space increasing, they have been proposed and studied as platform for civic engagement. Due to their situated nature, public displays have the potential to enable a larger cross-section of the public to participate in community consultation processes, compared to focus groups or online surveys.

Currently, first-year chemistry students at the University of Tasmania learn about three-dimensional molecular structures using a combination of lectures, tutorials, and practical hands-on experience with molecular chemistry kits. We have developed a basic 3D molecule construction simulation, called MolyPoly, to help students grasp the concepts of chemistry(More)
The effect of host strain ploidy on the production of hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) in Saccharomyces cerevisiae was evaluated at the pilot scale (75 L). We found that the accumulation of HBsAg normalized to cell protein was 2-fold higher for the diploid strain compared to its isogenic haploid. No detectable differences in many fermentation parameters(More)
Due to their situated nature, digital public displays have the potential to provide information and messages to large groups of people. However, in practice, non-customised content typically is not relevant to every passerby, while personalising information tailored to individuals is associated with privacy concerns. Previous research has identified mobile(More)
Currently, first-year chemistry students learn about three-dimensional molecular structures using a combination of lectures, tutorials, and practical hands-on experience with molecular chemistry kits. We have developed a basic 3D molecule construction simulation, called MolyPoly. The system was designed to augment the teaching of organic chemistry by(More)
A tongue-operated intra-oral remote controller of external equipment is described. It is built within the vault of an acrylic palatal plate and is intended for use by severely disabled people. It could also serve to supplement other means of control in those with lesser degrees of disability. Essentially it consists of a tongue-operated switch which(More)
