Dirichlet mixtures: a method for improved detection of weak but significant protein sequence homology
TLDR
We present a method for condensing the information in multiple alignments of proteins into a mixture of Dirichlet densities over amino acid distributions to form estimates of expected amino acid probabilities at each position in a hidden Markov model or other statistical model. Expand

The generation, segregation, ascent and emplacement of granite magma: the migmatite-to-crustally-derived granite connection in thickened orogens
Abstract Many granites result from anatexis of common crustal rock types and the segregation, aggregation, ascent and emplacement of the resultant magma. What then is the connection betweenExpand

Using Dirichlet Mixture Priors to Derive Hidden Markov Models for Protein Families
TLDR
A Bayesian method for estimating the amino acid distributions in the states of a hidden Markov model (HMM) for a protein family or the columns of a multiple alignment of that family is introduced. Expand

The rapid load testing of piles in fine grained soils.
The behaviour has been examined of piles installed in clay subject to a rapid load testing method known as the Statnamic test. The Statnamic method is easier and quicker to mobilise than a staticExpand

Analysis of a rapid load test on an instrumented bored pile in clay
Rapid load testing methods for piled foundations are generally easier and quicker to mobilise than classic static tests, and are less complex to analyse than dynamic load tests. A recently developedExpand

CXCR7 Protein Expression in Human Adult Brain and Differentiated Neurons
BACKGROUND CXCR7 and CXCR4 are receptors for the chemokine CXCL12, which is involved in essential functions of the immune and nervous systems. Although CXCR7 transcripts are widely expressedExpand
