FracPaQ: A MATLAB™ toolbox for the quantification of fracture patterns
This paper describes FracPaQ, a new open source, cross-platform toolbox to quantify fracture patterns from 2-D digital images, including distributions in fracture attributes and their spatial variation. Expand
Recombinant M2e outer membrane vesicle vaccines protect against lethal influenza A challenge in BALB/c mice.
Currently approved influenza vaccines predominantly protect through antibodies directed against the highly variable glycoprotein hemagglutinin (HA), necessitating annual redesign and formulation… Expand

ABSTRACT Vaccines often require adjuvants to be effective. Traditional adjuvants, like alum, activate the immune response but in an uncontrolled way. Newer adjuvants help to direct the immune… Expand
A single dose and long lasting vaccine against pandemic influenza through the controlled release of a heterospecies tandem M2 sequence embedded within detoxified bacterial outer membrane vesicles.
The influenza A virus undergoes genetic drift and shift, leaving the general population susceptible to emerging pandemic strains, despite seasonal flu vaccination. Here we describe a single dose… Expand
Magnetised thermal self-focusing and filamentation of long-pulse lasers in plasmas relevant to magnetised ICF experiments
In this paper, we study the influence of the magnetised thermal conductivity on the propagation of a nanosecond 1014 W cm−2 laser in an underdense plasma by performing simulations of a paraxial model… Expand
Self-assembly of collagen building blocks guided by electric fields.
Show me the way: protein building blocks are programmed to assemble hierarchically and yield a defined fiber morphology of micrometric length and precise nanometric diameter. The key step of this… Expand

Aerobic exercise helps to maintain cardiovascular health in part by mitigating age-induced arterial stiffening. However, the long-term effects of exercise regimens on aortic stiffness remain unknown,… Expand
Raman spectroscopy: an effective thermal marker in low temperature carbonaceous fold–thrust belts
Abstract Raman spectroscopy allows thermal maturation of carbonaceous sediments to be determined. The technique has been employed on metamorphic samples exceeding temperatures of 270°C, but recently… Expand
