Successful software development requires effective coordination among developers. In this paper, we propose Ensemble, an approach and a set of tools that aim to help developers better coordinate their work. Built on IBM Rational Team Concert, Ensemble helps developers select the right people to collaborate with, the right times to collaborate with them, and(More)
We compared global levels of DNA methylation as well as methylation of a specific locus (MyoD1) in ovarian cystadenomas, ovarian tumours of low malignant potential (LMP) and ovarian carcinomas to investigate the association between changes in DNA methylation and ovarian tumour development. As we realized that cystadenomas showed different methylation(More)
The only hope for effective treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC or 'hepatoma') lies in early diagnosis. Measurement of the serum alphafetoprotein (AFP) level is potentially a useful screening test. When grossly raised, it is almost diagnostic of HCC. However, modestly elevated levels may also arise in patients with benign chronic liver disease, and(More)
Serum levels of alphafetoprotein are raised in 60-80% of patients with hepatocellular carcinoma. Although widely used as a serum marker, frequent false-positive results in patients with benign liver disease, result in poor specificity. This occurs particularly when levels of alphafetoprotein fall between 50-500 ng ml-1, the so-called 'grey area'. Recent(More)
